Pet of the Week: Meet Parker!

This is Parker, a sweet and outgoing young rabbit found wandering alone in a parkade at UBC. Parker is sociable, LOVES attention and being pet. He is looking forward to becoming a responsible human’s BFF – remember that last “F” stand for FOREVER. Many people abandon their pet rabbits, which is not only illegal, but also cruel. Bunnies are intelligent, inquisitive companions and can live 10 to 12 years (or more!) They need as much commitment from their humans as a dog does, except you don’t have to walk your rabbits in the rain in January! 

To meet Parker, contact Vancouver Rabbit Rescue at or call 604-943-0908. For information on keeping rabbits properly please visit the House Rabbit Society at
