Surrendering a Rabbit

If you are considering surrendering a rabbit to a rescue or shelter, please consider the following:


We are currently over capacity.

We understand that it can be difficult to find a safe and loving home for your rabbit, and we regret to inform you that we are currently over capacity and unable to accept any new rabbits. Please know that our team is working tirelessly to provide the best care possible for the rabbits within our county that are at risk of being euthanized. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this challenging time. If you are in a situation where you urgently need to surrender your rabbit, please fill out our surrender form. We will be in touch with you as soon as we have space available. 

Have you tried the Following:

My Rabbit is Agressive

Have you tried having your rabbit spayed/neutered? Rabbits can be sexually frustrated, territorial, and hormonal when not spayed/neutered and this can be taken as agression.

Have you tried a different type of enclosure? Some bunnies become more aggressive in the type of enclosure they have. Some if they do not have enough space, can become territorial over the little space they have. Some if they are giving too much space too quickly, can become territorial as well over their kingdom. 

I cannot afford my rabbit

Our rescue supports all bunny parents. If you are tight between paychecks, you are more than welcome to come collect any supplies you may need. 




It is my child's rabbit and they don't want to take care of it.

Many kids do go through phases; however, this is a great opportunity for you to teach your child to follow through with responsibility for a living breathing animal. Animals are a 10-13 year commitment. Try having your child spend quality time with the rabbit, giving them treats, teaching them tricks, really connect on an emotional level with the rabbit. Once children are able to emotionally connect with the animals they are more likely to want to care and spoil them. 


I work, so I don't have time for my rabbit.

Rabbits are most active dusk and dawn. You do want to ensure they have a large enough space to run around, have enough enrichment, and lounge while you are not home. 

Many families will opt to bond their bunnies to another so their bunny has a friend to keep them company. See our "bonding" page for more information about bonding bunnies.
