The Minnesota House Rabbit Society is now the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society (MCRS). Our name may have changed, but our purpose stays the same! For more information on our name change, please visit our website.
To learn more about rabbits, their care and behavior -- please mark your calendars for upcoming events.
Bunny Basics classes are presented by MCRS educators and provide a helpful overview of rabbit behavior and care. Great for families considering a companion rabbit, for first time rabbit owners, or for those who want to brush up on their rabbit basics. FREE!
At the Adoption Events, you can meet some local rabbits looking for loving, permanent homes. MCRS Educators and Volunteers will be on hand to answer general questions, explain the adoption process, or help you find the right rabbit for you! (Please note: so you have all the info you need and are well-prepared for your new family member, an application needs to be completed and an interview take place PRIOR to attending an adoption event).
To see the full calendar of events --including Bunny Basics classes and Adoption events, please visit MCRS at www.mncompanionrabbit.org and click on the "Events" tab. Also visit www.rabbit.org for helpful information on rabbit care and behavior!

Rabbits available through the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society are all homeless rabbits taken in through partnerships with local animal shelters and animal control facilities. The rabbits have been examined by veterinarians, are sterilized and microchipped, and are cared for by private foster homes. The goal of the MCRS adoption program is to match these rabbits with families like yours to best accommodate the needs and interest of both. The MCRS adoption process includes an application, a phone interview, and a meeting with the rabbit(s) you are interested in. The adoption fee is $80 for each rabbit.
If you are interested in adopting a rabbit, please email us to receive an application and other rabbit adoption and care materials. Thank you for your interest in adopting a homeless rabbit!
Bunny Dates - MCRS also offers "dating" services to help match your current rabbit with an appropriate companion. Since rabbits are naturally social, they often do better with a companion than being single. The rabbits are able to provide continuous companionship, even during those times the humans have to work, etc. Please note your rabbit needs to be sterilized to begin the "dating" process.
Consultations - If MCRS does not have a rabbit that is the right rabbit for you, we will gladly work with you and other humane organizations to find a suitable rabbit. Our rabbit experts will accompany you to visit with rabbits at humane societies and offer insight about those rabbits to ensure the best possible match.
