We have two-fold mission. First, to rescue abandoned rabbits, provide appropriate daily care and health care, and adopt them into permanent, indoor homes. Second, to educate the public about domestic rabbits and their appropriate care.
We are an all volunteer organization founded in 1997 that rescues abandoned rabbits, has them spayed/neutered, health checked, litter box trained, solicalized and then adopted into loving, indoor only homes. All adopters must attend an orientaion on rabbit care and behavior prior to adoption as most people have completely wrong ideas about rabbits as pets and their needs. Rabbits are the third most abandoned pet in the U.S. We do extensive community outreach from pre-school to PhD level. We encourage young volunteers, but depending on age a parent or adult may need to volunteer with them. Volunteer activities range from data entry to hands on with the bunnies or assistance with activities, events, and fundraising. Many volunteers are needed to help in our shelter with the bunnies or with maintenance as over 40 animal agencies and rescues call upon us for help with abandoned domestic rabbits.
