Against All Odds Rabbit Rescue is a new organization that has grown out of the Canadian Rabbit Hopping Club in Calgary, Alberta. Their goal is to find new homes or foster homes for abandoned rabbits as well as spreading awareness about rabbits as house pets.
“We currently have seven bunnies in need of new homes,” said the founder of Against All Odds, Rosemarie Greening. “We’re also going to try to fundraise to get a spay and two neuters done,” she added. That means they will be faced with $550 to $600 in veterinary expenses in order to make three of their rabbits able to be re-homed.

The Canadian Rabbit Hopping Club first came into the public spotlight with its appearance on the television program “Canada’s Got Talent.” Club members later traveled with their bunnies to Vancouver where they delighted crowds at the Pacific National Exhibition summer fair. They also assisted Vancouver Rabbit Rescue and Advocacy in setting up a new rabbit agility program.
Their new rescue aims to correct some of the misconceptions now held about rabbits by many uninformed people. In fact rabbits are not “disposable” pets but are clever, fascinating animals, especially when allowed free roaming privileges within the home, rather than being cooped up in a cage. “Rabbits are trainable, affectionate and intelligent animals, capable of far more than people give them credit for,” Rosemarie Greening says.
