Please note we are NOT CURRENTLY TAKING IN BUNNIES DUE TO HEALTH ISSUES! We are currently functioning as an educational organization. We have retired from rescue due to health issues. We still love bunnies though, and help when we can through educational events. Please do not contact us regarding rehoming your bunny, but instead please refer to the Rehoming page on our website:https://www.huntsvillefriendsofrabbits.com/rehoming/
We feel rabbits do best in homes with adults! We love to adopt to adult-only homes, but we do consider homes with older children (over 10 years) on a case-by-case basis. We do not adopt to homes with children under 10 years. Please be aware that 90% of the bunnies we rescue were pets for young children and were brought to the shelter because the child tired of them and the parents did not want them.
Our adoption fee is $50 for one bunny or $75 for a bonded pair. This helps cover the cost of their spay/neuters. Each rabbit we take in costs our group a minimum of $300, sometimes much, much more, so this adoption fee is minimal.
We adopt out only spayed and neutered bunnies.
We adopt to indoor homes only. We prefer that our bunnies be "free range" (meaning that at least one room will be bunny-proofed so that the bunny can be uncaged with a litter box) but at the very least they must have either a 4 X 4 exercise pen or the equivalent space in a condo. If you need help with housing suggestions, please ask!
We will do a home visit prior to the adoption to make sure the bunny has enough space and that you have adequate "bunnyproofing".
Adopters must be 25 or older and financially able to care for a bunny. You must be willing and able to pay a possible $400 (and up! way up!) vet bill if your bunny gets sick.
We do not adopt rabbits as classroom bunnies, residents of petting zoos or as props for photographers at Easter.
We do not adopt rabbits as gifts for other people, unless the recipient of the gift is actively involved!
We consider homes with dogs, snakes or ferrets on a case by case basis.
We expect our adopters to take their bunny to a rabbit-savvy vet for regular check-ups as well as when sick, and to be willing to spend the money for quality vet care. We cannot emphasize this enough.
Special needs bunnies will be adopted only to people who are experienced in rabbit care and who are financially able to provide the vet care these bunnies need.
We only adopt within a 100 mile radius of Huntsville, Alabama.
