news rabbits
Available for a limited time – sale closes October 2nd. We have something to please every bunny-loving person in your life: tees, hoodies, masks and more.

View and purchase at the RA Bonfire Store.

100% of proceeds will go directly to RA’s Medical Fund which covers spays, neuters, and veterinary care for foster rabbits. COVID-19 and wildfires have led to an increased need for our services, while also stretching our budget very thin. We have had to cancel most of our in-person fundraising events, including Bunnypalooza. Your support for this online campaign is very much needed and appreciated.

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.

Thank you to all who have bought items from our Amazon Foster Bunny Wish List! Our foster bunnies are putting them to good use!

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)
