*Do you have any fundraisers coming up that you want my viewers to know about?
We have one fundraiser through the year that doubles as a educational event to the public calledBunanza, which takes place July 26 2014. Info is here ~ http://bunanza.ca/

*What is the adoption process like?
We first have the potential families fill out an application, which includes information on their rabbit experience, members of the household, where the rabbit will be kept, etc. Then we meet in a neutral place and talk with the people, find out what they are like and how the rabbit interacts with them (and vice-versa). If they pass this stage, we will bring the rabbit and do a home visit with them, see exactly where the rabbit will be living/how the current rabbit they have lives if they have one. If every works out, the bunny is adopted.

*What does your shelter/rescue hope to achieve in 2014?
Just helping out rabbits, finding them good homes and educating the public on rabbit care. There just are not enough sources out there for rabbit welfare that the public commonly sees, so we’re hoping to change that.http://canadianrabbithoppingclub.com/
