WE HAVE A BABY BUNNY BOOM!
In the last two months, we have had an unprecedented number of baby bunnies and their moms hop into the Rabbit Advocates family. We currently have 46 youngsters between four weeks and four months of age that need foster homes as soon as possible, plus three of their mama bunnies who need to be spayed. Hop over to our Rabbit Advocates Facebook page to view our photo album of these little rabbit rapscallions!
We really need your help! If you are not already a part of the Rabbit Advocates foster family, we would love to certify you as a foster parent for one or more of these bunnies. Please fill out our Foster Application Form. If you’re already a certified foster provider wanting to help, or if you have any questions, please contact Mary and Heather, our Foster Coordinators, at Foster.Coordinator@rabbitadvocates.org.
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!
Hop on out to one or more of our Bunny’s Spa Day or Adoption Meet ‘n’ Greet events near you!

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, WITHIN 60 CALENDAR DAYS, 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, WITHIN 60 CALENDAR DAYS, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call the RA Help Line at (503) 617-1625.
