Rabbit & Small Animal Rescue

Cupcake and Muffin went to their forever home this afternoon. They were originally purchased for a child and the child lost interest. The mother took over care for about 1.5 years and then could no longer take care of them.

 

Regarding injured wildlife, please contact a wildlife rehabber if you find they have injuries, just don't dump in a parking lot. Stuff happens all the time, lawn mowers, weed whips, cats, dogs, cars injure and kill them daily. Why not try to save those that can be saved? We take their land to build human habitat's, we poison their food so we can have green grass. The earth belongs to more then just humans.

Rest in peace little one. We are sorry that some human ran a weed whip over your little body and then dumped you in a parking lot instead of taking you to a vet or rehabber so you may have lived.
Our rescue was contacted about this rabbit today. We contacted a wildlife rehabber and went to pick up and transport, but we were too late.

 

Reminder: Many no-kill rescues remain full 365 days a year and will take back any pet that was adopted from them. Many pets are euthanized when purchased from a breeder or pet store because they won't take back, and rescues are FULL! Our rescue is volunteers and foster homes, there is no facility. Please be a responsible pet parent and be willing to make a LIFETIME commitment to the pet you bring home BEFORE bringing home. Do your research too. Chinchilla can be a 20 year commitment, a Rabbit can be a 12 year commitment, a Guinea pig an 8 year commitment, some birds 75 year commitment. We continue to get surrender requests from people after they have had their pet less then a year (purchased from breeder or pet store).

 

Hi everyone. Cupcake and Muffin are our names, we were purchased for a 15 year old when we were babies and after a few short months the child lost interest in us. After 2 years we were surrendered to RASAR. Our nails were so long we couldn't walk well and volunteer cut the nails, and Muffin had a large pus filled cyst on her spine. We were immediately taken to the vet for health check and to have cyst drained in April 2019. The pus is back on Muffin spine so we will see the vet this Friday.

 

My names is Hickory, I was born on November 25, 2018, I am a smooth hair, tri-colored guinea pig. My bother looks similar to my daddy Aspen, so we call him Aspen Jr, he is grey and white.

We are both very shy, but our foster family is working on making us more comfortable with being handled. Our hair is like satin and we will slip right through your fingers. Because we enjoy our snuggle sack, when we see it, we go in it. Next thing we know we are on the lap enjoying being petted. Only one of us can be in the sack when lifted out for our own safety.

 

Mama Hope gave birth to 14 babies (4 girls, 10 boys) on June 2, 2019

Unfortunately at this time we are not accepting owner surrenders. 


We currently do not have the resources to accept new surrendered pets at this time, saying no is one of the hardest things we do. Until we have adopted out more of our furry friends we cannot take any new faces.


If you have adopted from us we will take back the pet, please email us at rasa.rescue@gmail.com with the subject as: Previous Adopter.


Otherwise Petfinder.com is a great source to find other rescue groups for rabbits and small animals.

 

Thank you!! To everyone recently helping us out via Facebook with Birthday Fundraisers!!

 

Alfalfa is loving his new forever home!!

 

The only rabbit that should be purchased for Easter is a candy one, not a living one. A rabbit can be a 12 year or more commitment and their vetting is costly, so please discourage your neighbors, friends and relatives from purchasing real rabbits in celebration of Easter OR in the future as a pet for a child. A rabbit is NOT a good pet for children.

 

Its Valentines Day!

Be our furry friends Valentine this year! Treat our adoptable's with a donation of supplies, love or monetary gift!

 

Thank you for visiting us at Petco (Canton & Livonia) December 15th & 16th for photos with Santa. 

Your $9.95 donation will be used for food and vetting. RASA Rescue offered 1 courtesy photo printed taken by a volunteer with our camera and the customers seemed to like that feature. This was ONLY at the Canton & Livonia Petco locations on the dates above.  

Thank you  for your patience while your pictures were being printed, because it took some time to print the photos. Thank you for your support!

Update: Sadly Phil needed emergency surgery on Friday and he passed away in recovery. We still need your help to pay off his $718 vet bill.

Phil is a 4 year old Guinea Pig that needs your help. 


Unfortunately his 89 year old owner passed away and the hospice nurse contacted RASA for help. Phil was taken to the vet for evaluation because he was straining to urinate. They found a kidney stone(see x-ray below) and Phil is due to have surgery next Wednesday. Phil is in great need of your generosity. Please donate what you can you give Phil the care he needs!
