1. Rabbit rescue: Our goal is to buy a homeless bunny more time. Each rabbit we rescue from local shelters is spayed or neutered. Any health concerns are addressed and the bunny is litter-trained.
2. Education & Outreach: Through our newsletter, web page and community activities, we aim to inform others about rabbit health and nutrition, behavior and care.
3. Adoption: The desired outcome in a rabbit rescue is placement in a permanent, loving home. Every rabbit placed means another can be rescued from a shelter.
4. Long-term care for invalid rabbits: Some rescued rabbits have special needs and/or health conditions that are beyond the capabilities of the average bunny parent. We provide special care for these rabbits either in foster or sanctuary homes. This function of the WHRS is most demanding on funds and time. New foster and sanctuary homes are always needed.
