What is the adoption process?

Tell me about your rabbits.

The adoptable rabbits shown on this site are being cared for in the homes of Rabbit Advocate
volunteers. Because these rabbits live with us as members of the family, we can tell you helpful information about a rabbit you are considering adopting. This includes info on the rabbit’s personality, what he is used to eating, what living arrangements will work well, his favorite treats and toys, and the answers to other questions you’ll have.

Are indoor homes required?

Our rabbits are adopted to indoor homes only.

Are the rabbits spayed or neutered?

All rabbits are spayed/neutered prior to adoption.

Do you have rabbits who aren’t featured on your site?


What are “special needs” rabbits?

special needsThese are rabbits who require extra care for medical conditions (sometimes temporary), have a disability, or who require socialization. These rabbits are given a second chance when they are fostered in volunteer homes where they receive appropriate medical care and help with social skills.
