Rabbit Rescues

Sir Barton and Seabiscuit

Rabbit rescues are more common than some people think. Below are just a few. If you are interested in volunteering, donating or adopting or fostering a rabbit, please contact the rescue directly.

Important! If you are looking to re-home your bunny, please contact these rescues directly. If a rescue cannot take in your rabbit, please go to your local city or county shelter. DO NOT DUMP YOUR BUNNY OUTSIDE!! Domesticated rabbits do not have the survival instincts of their wild cousins. To give your bunny the chance of a home and a long-life, please go to a shelter.
