Meet Beau

Beau was just a tiny baby when he was rescued. He needed to go to a foster home to be treated for pneumonia. He grew up around cats and dogs until he was healthy. Beau is one of the most active rabbits we have met and will need a special home with lots of stimulation, rabbit-proofed space, toys. He will need to be adopted by an advanced, rabbit-savvy family that understands rabbit language and behavior and will fully appreciate his antics.

Beau can jump over tall pens, especially when he moves boxes to help him climb. He loves boxes with holes and tunnels that have multiple tiers to climb through, grass mats to to dance across or chew, and he will even carry sticks around his space. He is highly stimulated by everything which can be very fun, but for someone looking for a mellow lap bunny, Beau will not be a good fit. He can nip and pull at clothing and shoes, so will not do will with children.

Rex rabbits have thin pads on their feet that makes them prone to sore hocks. They require special attention to make sure their nails are trimmed regularly, they don't gain too much weight, and they have lots of space to move around.

Beau is one of our lucky rabbits being cared for in a foster home with a House Rabbit Society volunteers while looking forward to finding a forever home.

Stress can be a trigger for underlying health issues in rabbits like Beau. He might not be an ideal candidate to be bonded with other rabbits and will do best in a permanent home that won't require being moved. Please contact us by email if you are interested in meeting Beau.

RHDV-2 Safety Protocols:
As a safety precaution for people bringing rabbits for nail trims or to find a friend for their rabbit, guests will need to pre-register rabbits to confirm they have received the RHDV-2 vaccination. You only need to pre-register once while the vaccination certificate is valid.
Donations of $10 for nail trims are appreciated!

To pre-register, send an email to Your email needs to include:
• Your name
• Your rabbit’s name
• A legible image of your rabbit’s vaccination certificate
• A picture of your rabbit ?

We do not have a shelter to introduce our foster rabbits and our volunteers have limited time to respond to all online inquiries, so the best way to meet one of our rabbits is to attend our next adoption day. Sometimes people bond to a different rabbit in person than the one they choose online.

All rabbits have their own individual personalities, so our goal is to find the best match suited for your environment and lifestyle. Our adoption fee is $75 and all of our rabbits are spayed/neutered and vaccinated for Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV).

Please provide answers to the following questions to hep us determine if one of our rabbits will be a good match for you and your family. We will review your questionnaire and contact you to set up an appointment for a phone or video call.
*Please only complete if you are over the age of 18 and living within the Sacramento area.

You will need to get your home ready before bringing a bunny home. Read more about living with rabbits at or, or buy the House Rabbit Handbook. Bunny-proof your home and protect electrical cords. Decide what to buy in terms of enclosure, exercise pen, or other housing, plus food, litter boxes, toys and other care items. Locate an exotic veterinarian who sees rabbits in your area.
