Our family loves bunnies. It all started when we hosted a Rabbitats Rabbit Rescue birthday party in our backyard last summer. That got us hooked, and lead to us fostering a litter of 9 baby bunnies and eventually adopting 2 of them! Rose & Bella have since become an amazing part of our family (pictured right, chilling on the grass!). And our kiddos have also been fans of Catfe (Vancouver’s Cat Cafe) since it opened in 2015. So you can imagine how excited we are that the creators have opened The Bunny Cafe in Vancouver!
The Bunny Cafe is the first of its kind in North America. Applying the ‘animal cafe’ model, they have partnered with Rabbitats Rescue to create a therapeutic space to interact with adoptable bunnies, paving the way for a whole new concept of rabbit rescue, adoption & advocacy — and a fun space to socialize with other bunny lovers, or just relax and be one with the bunnies. The Bunny Cafe opened on June 22nd and is now accepting bookings!
Guests must be 5 years or older to visit, and kids 5 to 10 years old must be accompanied by an adult (maximum 2 children per adult). Face masks must be worn at all times while inside the space, hand-washing is required upon entry, and visitors must practice safe physical distancing from others. Due to COVID, the food & drink service in the cafe will not be operational until the end of 2021. But that won’t stop us from visiting to support bunny adoptions this summer – we’ve booked for early July and our kids can’t wait!
