When I’m not hanging out with my foster family, including one of the younger humans (she’s ~9 years old), I go on trips to a nursing home where I sit with people and get lots of pets. I also like to spend time playing with my box, nested cups, and anything that gets me foraging for my food – I like the challenge! Oh, and if I’m feeling rather energetic, I’m not afraid to binky.
I think I’d love a furever family that likes to hang out with me, and offer pets, fun and engaging toys, and of course leafy greens. Those who have interacted with me think I would make an awesome therapy animal since I am very sweet and intelligent - I know when to be calm, and when I can be energetic and do some binkies!

Our Adoption Process...
Prior to adoption, we ask that people fill out an application: http://www.friendsofrabbits.org/adoptionform.htm
1. The rabbit must be adopted by a responsible adult at least 18 years of age. If the rabbit is to be adopted out to a family, the primary caregiver must be an adult or a responsible older teen. Younger children may do the work necessary to care for the rabbit under the daily supervision of an adult. All adults in the family must agree on adopting the rabbit.
2. We do not adopt our rabbits out as classroom pets. Exceptions would be adoption to the teacher who may bring the rabbit into the classroom on a regular basis.
3. Rabbits are social animals. The adopted rabbit is to be housed indoors in an appropriate space where he or she will receive daily interaction with the family. The best possible space would be freedom in a rabbit proofed room. If that is not possible, a dog exercise pen with rabbit safe flooring works well. Other options include a large dog crate or a roomy cage. The best cages are at least 42 to 48 inches long by 24 inches width. The 24 inch width allows for use of the widest and deepest jumbo litter boxes which work very well for most rabbits. Caging can also be easily built to fit your space using shelving material. Instructions on how to build those cages can be provided. Caged rabbits need daily exercise time outside the cage.
4. If you are renting your home, please have written consent from your landlord before you adopt.
5. For new adopters, we usually conduct a home visit to make sure that the rabbit will be adopted into a safe environment. We occasionally adopt out rabbits to people outside our area. If it is not possible to conduct a home visit ourselves, we will either ask an associate in your area to visit your home or we will ask for photographs of your setup for the rabbit.
6. When they are ill, rabbits require a veterinarian that specializes in exotic animals. Be aware that these services are considerably more expensive than most veterinarians. Plan them into your budget accordingly.
7. If you are looking to adopt a companion for your existing rabbit, your rabbit must be spayed or neutered prior to any introductions.
8. The final step to the adoption process is filling out a contract, which is supplied by our representative. The cost to adopt a rabbit from us is $90 for a single rabbit and $150 for a pair. The adoption fees include a goodie bag with rabbit care information, necessities, toys and a coupon for discounted rabbit supplies, and cover the cost of the rabbit's spay/neuter.
