ADOPTION
GUIDELINES

Thank you for your interest in adopting rescued rabbits! Please read through the following important items before you fill out the Adoption Application.

  • Rabbits are not low maintenance pets and require a 10-14 year commitment.

  • Contrary to popular belief, rabbits do not make good pets for children. The primary caregiver of the adopted rabbit must be an adult (over the age of 21). 

  • All rabbits must be housed (and exercised) INDOORS in a climate-controlled area of your home. All porches used for playtime must be screened and have fencing up to 36 inches from the floor.

  • Rabbits are highly social and need companionship to keep them healthy and from getting lonely. As human companions, we can only offer them so much and that is why many of our rabbits are adopted as bonded pairs. The adoption fee is $100 for a single or $150 for a bonded pair.

    • Please be aware that it costs us an average of $300 to prepare a rabbit for adoption (vet visit, spay/neuter, medication/treatment/vaccine based on the situation)​ so we always appreciate donations on top of the adoption fee.

  • In addition to the adoption fee, the initial investment for adopting a rabbit is approximately $200. This includes an x-pen (enclosure), carrier, litter box, food and water bowls, pellets, hay, treats, and toys. We suggest that you speak with us first before purchasing supplies in order to ensure you purchase items that best fit the rabbit's age/breed and to avoid buying unecessary and potentially dangerous items.

  • We want the best lives for our rescued rabbits. If at any time you are unable to care for them or no longer want them, they MUST be returned to us. We always accept our rabbits back into our shelter and do NOT allow anyone else to rehome them.
