Can you provide a foster home?

Rabbit Advocates is looking to certify new foster homes via Zoom to help bunnies in need. For more information on our foster program, or if you have new or gently-used bunny supplies to donate, please reach out. You can contact us at foster@rabbitadvocates.org or fill out a foster application.

Foster bunny Evie is hoping to find her furever human who is patient and has experience with bunnies! Evie enjoys her freedom and must have as much free-roaming time as possible in her forever home. Do you have the perfect home for a lady bun with lots of character?

Coronavirus Update

The safety of our community is important to us. Rabbit Advocates has made the decision to cancel some of our scheduled events due to recommendations regarding COVID-19. Please check our calendar below for the latest schedule. RA remains committed to our mission of promoting the welfare of domestic rabbits and we still have many wonderful rabbits in our foster program waiting for their permanent loving homes.


Rabbit Advocates Spay and Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP)

Update on RA SNIP and Community Medical Fund
Due to lack of funding caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Rabbit Advocates has temporarily suspended our SNIP and medical reimbursement programs.

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 developed a Spay and Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP)
