Welcome to the Vancouver Island Rabbit Breeders' Association! Based in Victoria, BC, Canada, we believe we are one of the oldest continuous rabbit clubs in North America as we were established in 1918. We have been chartered with the American Rabbit Breeders' Association (ARBA) since the 1950s.
We are devoted to the hobby of rabbit raising, be it show, pet, or meat. Our meetings are the second Friday of January, March, May, August, October and November and we pride ourselves on being a social club. We also have a major show in June, and help run the rabbit section of the ever-popular Saanich Fair every Labour Day weekend.
And we are happy to announce the publication of a new guidebook / cookbook! Recipes for people and rabbits (including how to make treats), along with tips on raising and caring for rabbits, written by our club members. Available on CD for $10, $8 for current VIRBA members. Contact us to order yours.
