Our Mission

Rescue abandoned rabbits and find permanent adoptive homes for them.

Through education, we seek to reduce the number of unwanted rabbits — and to improve bunnies’ lives — by helping people better understand these often misunderstood companion animals. We provide education about proper care of pet rabbits and community outreach to groups requesting rabbit information.

Our organization is against any and all exploitation of rabbits. We neuter/spay all incoming rabbits, obtain any necessary veterinary care, provide proper housing and food, and attend to their social needs.

Adoption Policy

The adoption questionnaire is a pre-adoption screening application. You will not be officially approved to adopt until you visit the shelter. We try to ensure the best possible match between rabbit and adopter or between rabbit and rabbit (if this is a bonding situation).


The adoption fee is $85 for a single rabbit, $140 for a pair and $180 for a trio.


Keep in mind the following points:

Rabbits must be housed indoors only. No unsupervised time outdoors. Never housed overnight outdoors.

Rabbits should get a minimum of 30 hours of uncaged time each week.

Rabbits may under no circumstances be declawed.

Indoor rabbits live an average of 8-12 years. We are looking for those special adopters who will make every effort possible to keep their companion for their entire life despite lifestyle changes (divorce, moving, kids going to college, etc.)

Rabbits may not be adopted as gifts. All members of a household should make an effort to be present for the adoption appointment.

Rabbits will not be placed in a home where there is an un-neutered or un-spayed rabbit UNLESS THERE IS A MEDICAL REASON DETERMINED BY A VETERINARIAN.

We do not adopt rabbits to children. We DO adopt rabbits to families.

Parents/adults/guardians must fill out this application and sign the adoption contract. Please do not have your children call or email.?

Primary caregiver MUST be an adult.

Applicants who are under 18 years of or who are living with parents must have a parent or legal guardian apply on their behalf.

Renters must have landlord approval.?
