Rescuing rabbits in the Treasure Valley through adoptions and education, rabbits are the third most dumped animal and are often misunderstood.
Primary Caregiver. When a rabbit is adopted from Save A Bun Rabbit Rescue, the primary caregiver must be a responsible adult. The rabbit should be treated as an integral part of the family, i.e., no group ownership (such as a classroom pet). We do NOT adopt rabbits as pets for children. The rabbit must be wanted by the entire family
Social Requirements. If the rabbit is going to be alone (example: without the company of people, or other household pets) for the majority of the time, then we recommend that the adopter adopt a second rabbit as a companion to the first rabbit they are getting.
Returns. If there are such problems with the adopted rabbit that the adopter needs to return the rabbit, we want you to know that the adoption fee is non-refundable and would be considered a donation to the rescue.
Exchanges. Save A Bun Rabbit Rescue does not exchange animals.
Adoption fees. Save A Bun Rabbit Rescue adoption fees are donations that cannot be refunded. We are a federally recognized tax-exempt, nonprofit organization. Donations made to us are no more refundable than they are to any other public charity.
Adoption fees are $105.50 per rabbit. Adoption fees are donations that cannot be refunded.
Keeping bunny safe: Adopters agree to keep the bunny safe from all predators including other animals in the home.
Spaying/Neutering: Except for medical or age specific concerns, all Save A Bun Rabbit Rescue rabbits are to be spayed or neutered prior to adoption or at an age and health appropriate time after adoption. This service is to be provided by a vet used by Save A Bun Rabbit Rescue.
Permanent Adoptions: Your adoption is presumed to be permanent. However, if you are unable to keep your adopted bunny due to emergency conditions, death in the family or critical illness, or severe financial issues, we will be glad to assist you to secure a new home for your adopted rabbit. Save A Bun Rabbit Rescue adopters agree not to surrender the rabbit to any other shelter, other rescue group or third party.
Education: Adopters will be provided with a full education packet. Successful adopters read this information carefully and call us with any questions they have. Of course our counselors will also go over this with you during your adoption and after the adoption as need be.
All rabbits adopted from this agency must be returned to this agency in case of insurmountable problems that prevent the adoption from being permanent.
