Rescue Group Swap Zone! launched on “Sniffing Out Home” blog

I learn a lot writing about rescue groups in the Vancouver/Richmond area, and I am consistently amazed how many resources are available if only we could get those specific resources to the right groups.  General organization of supplies is an ongoing problem for many rescue efforts, so I thought I’d help (a little!)  by gathering some links to a few ‘wish lists’ from rescue groups in our area.  Check out the Rescue Group Swap Zone! on this blog; you might just have some items that these groups need.

Also, if you know of a rescue group with a wish list that should be added to the list, please email me or comment on this post.

Check out — a wonderful resource for friends of hopping friends

The more I learn about the massive undertaking to move the UVic rabbits from the campus on Vancouver Island to sanctuaries on the Island and south to Texas, the more I am in awe of volunteers who have had to put their lives on hold to help these precious creatures.  Furthermore, I’m learning so much about rabbits along the way.  During my conversations with TRACS for Texas-bound Bunnies volunteer Sorelle Saidman, I learned that she maintains a wonderful online forum on rabbits and rabbit rescue called

At this forum, you can track the ongoing progress of the UVic bunnies.  But even more fun is the rabbit and hat photo contest.  What a great idea!
