Bunny Rescue

Bunny Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of rabbits in need. Our goal is to match bunnies with owners who are ready for a lifelong commitment, and to educate new owners about what owning a pet bunny is really like. As an adoption agency, we do so much more than just find homes for abandoned bunnies—we provide veterinary care, safe shelter, food and water and love for abandoned bunnies as we work to find them forever families. If you’ve ever wanted to adopt a rabbit but have been hesitant because you don’t know where to start, Bunny Rescue can help!

Your first stop should be our Adoption page. That page contains lots of great information that will help you decide if adopting a rabbit is right for you. In addition, it contains our application form. You should complete this application before contacting us about any specific rabbits—when you complete the application form your answers will be evaluated by one of our staffers and they will contact you within 72 hours (usually much sooner). Once your application has been received and accepted by Bunny Rescue staff members they will communicate solely through email; please do not call the office or send additional emails asking when your application was received or when it will be processed; your patience is appreciated!

Adoption fees

What are the adoption fees for a bunny? A male bunny costs $35 and a female bunny costs $45. These fees include spay/neuter surgery and 2 follow-up visits at our vet clinic. Adopting a bunny also includes 1 year of free nail trims at our clinic—after that, nail trims are only $10 each time.

Our rescue is run 100% by volunteers, so your adoption fee helps us cover the cost of providing care to bunnies before they find their forever homes.

New bunny owner checklist

If you’re like most people, you probably have a good relationship with your own doctor. So finding a medical professional for your new best friend should be easy, right? Not so fast. Before adopting Fuzzy, you need to make sure that the local vets in your area are comfortable working with rabbits and have experience doing so. Rabbits require specialized treatments that differ from those of other pets, so it’s important to find an experienced vet who has treated bunnies before. But even if the local veterinarians don’t have experience working with rabbits or aren’t open to developing bunny care skills, there could still be hope! There are vet clinics that specialize in treating exotic animals such as bunnies, and most vet schools offer services at discounts to help students get practice treating more unusual pets.

Another thing you’ll want to do prior to bringing home Flopsy is looking into boarding options for when you travel or need someone else to watch Flopsy while you’re away from home. Most rabbit owners choose not to board their pets (for good reason) and instead opt for keeping them together in their own home where they feel safe and comfortable. However, some pet-sitting organizations such as Rover offer pet-sitting services in which trained sitters visit the homes of pet owners at regular intervals each day during their absence and take care of any needs that arise during this time.

House bunny supplies

The bunny basics:

  • hay
  • food (most buns need a mixture of alfalfa, timothy hay, and fresh berries)
  • bed (bunnies can jump up to 30cm in height and that’s before they roll around in it!)

Bunny FAQs

  • Q: Why should I adopt a bunny?

A: Bunnies are fun, cute, and cuddly. They love to play and explore their surroundings. What’s more, you’ll be helping to save the life of an animal in need! Since bunnies are prone to overbreeding, there are many homeless rabbits in shelters waiting for a loving home.

  • Q: What is the difference between a rabbit and a hare?

A: The most obvious difference is size; hares tend to be larger than rabbits. Rabbits belong to the genus Lepus whereas hares belong to the genus Lepus. Hares have longer ears and shorter tails, while rabbits have shorter ears and longer tails. Most often, hares eat above ground while rabbits eat below ground. Hares also give birth above ground after one month of gestation (pregnancy), whereas rabbits give birth below ground after about two months’ gestation period.

  • Q: Do bunnies shed?

A: Yes, just like cats and dogs do! This means that your bunny will need regular grooming; you should brush it at least twice a week but ideally every day if you want soft fur on your pet bunny!

Adopting a house rabbit is a good idea.
