Rabbit Advocates Spay and Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP)
Effective June 1, 2018

Rabbit Advocates believes that spaying or neutering your pet house rabbit is the single most important thing you can do to improve their health and extend their life. To promote this cause, we have developed a Spay and Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP) to provide reimbursement of up to $100 per rabbit spay, and up to $75 per rabbit neuter. Reimbursement will only be made upon receipt of a paid invoice from the veterinarian and will be made based on fund availability. Effective June 1, these SNIP funds will only be available to Oregon residents of Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, and Columbia counties, and Washington residents of Clark County. Please contact SNIP@rabbitadvocates.org or call the RA Help Line at (503) 617-1625 for more details.

Rabbit Advocates may also be able to provide limited reimbursement for emergency veterinary expenses, for amounts of up to $150 per rabbit per calendar year. Reimbursement will only be made upon receipt of a paid invoice from the veterinarian and will be made based on fund availability. Effective June 1, this assistance will only be available to Oregon residents of Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, and Columbia counties, and Washington residents of Clark County. For additional information about this fund, please contact our Medical Fund Committee at medical.fund@rabbitadvocates.org or call the RA Help Line at (503) 617-1625.

Rabbit Advocates needs Foster Providers!

Four young rabbits in need of a foster home
These four young bunnies are just a few of the rabbits that need foster homes in the Portland/Vancouver area.

Rabbit Advocates is in desperate need of foster providers for bunnies of all sizes, colors, and ages! Our existing foster homes are beyond full and overflowing with rescued and rehomed rabbits. We need your help to provide safe and nurturing indoor homes for these bunnies, young or adult, petite or full-figured, cuddly or cautious, so they can learn to be loved and then adopted into their “furever” homes. Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned foster provider or thinking about fostering for the first time, we need your help! Please fill out our Foster Application Form so we can match you with the rabbit(s) that are right for you and your home. Thank you!
