Other Pets at Shelter...
Winston came in to New Moon Rabbit Rescue’s care on 11 October 2012. Winston is a French Lop and weighs approx 12lbs (maybe a bit more!). He came to New Moon as an owner surrender.
Winston was born in June 2011. He spent his last months before being surrendered in a cage that was not acceptable for a rabbit of his size. Because he was unable to move properly he had hock sores on his hind feet that have since been treated and healed. A rabbit of his size should NEVER be kept in a cage of any kind. Even as little as a large “night crate” or exercise pen is too much for him right now and he would only spend his time trying to break free.
He has also been treated for an eye infection and still receives occasional eye drops to help with any inflammation that remains.
Winston loves to investigate and check everything out including the inside of the fridge. He loves to throw toys and show off for anyone that will pay attention to him. We do not believe that Winston has the best vision, which is most likely due to his ongoing and untreated eye issues. As a result he does not like fast/sudden movements and does not like being approach from directly in front of him but he loves pets and loves attention. It is not uncommon to see Winston crashed out in the middle of the floor for a rest between his GIANT binkies so it is important to always turn on a light before entering the room as Winston moves for no one!!
Surprisingly, unlike many large breed bunnies, Winston loves to be picked up, held and carried around! He just wants and needs love so badly.
Winston is adoptable as a free-range bunny ONLY.
Winston is NOT RECOMMENDED to a home with young children. Winston is however getting much better with cats and dogs and with proper introductions and patience we see no reason why he cannot share a home with other animals.
We do make every effort to keep our adoption profiles as up-to-date as possible but this is not always possible. If you are interested in adopting Winston or have any questions about him, please email email@example.com
Rescue Group Info...
New Moon Rabbit Rescue was formed in September 2006 with one main goal: to provide unwanted, abandoned, neglected, or abused domestic rabbits with a second chance at human love and appropriate care.
We are a "no-kill" organization dedicated to providing care for rescued domestic rabbits. All rabbits remain in foster homes until such time as they are adopted to loving, caring homes.
All of New Moon's rabbits are in foster care at this time. If you are interested in meeting a particular rabbit you must fill out an adoption application. Upon approval a meeting with the foster home will be arranged.
All rabbits that come into the care of New Moon Rabbit Rescue are spayed or neutered, health checked and if necessary, fully rehabilitated before adoption. Potential adopters are thoroughly screened to ensure that the rabbits will be entering safe and happy environments.
Every potential adopter must fill out an application, either online or by printing and filling out the PDF document. It can be faxed to 613-489-0487. You will receive a phone call within a few days to discuss your application. Please review our adoption contract, which you will required to sign upon picking up your new rabbit. Please note that all adopters must be approved before visiting the rabbits.
Our adoption policies state that we do not adopt to children, however we do adopt to families with children in which children may aid parents in caring for the rabbit. New Moon rabbits are adopted out as house pets only and are not to be housed outdoors. There will be NO exceptions to either of these strict policies.
Our adoption fees are $85 for a single rabbit and $130 for an already bonded pair. All adoption fees are non-refundable, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the rabbits of New Moon. We are wiling to adopt outside of our area, but you must be willing to pick up your new friend.
We serve Ottawa, Ontario and the surrounding areas of Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. We have on occasion adopted as far away as the US. All adopters must be willing to pick up their new friend(s)
