Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), rescue and educational organization. We rescue, rehabilitate, and find loving forever homes for abandoned house rabbits. We also support local rabbit parents by providing education on these often misunderstood animals and their proper care, and offering expert support for any physical or behavioral challenges that may come up. We even have our own one-stop bunny shop, the Bunny Burrow, located at our shelter and open to the public every Saturday.
Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue (formerly Colorado House Rabbit Society) is licensed by the House-Rabbit Society International Headquarters. We are a 100% volunteer-drive organization, made up of a diverse group of over 200 bunny lovers.
Our shelter is home to around 80 rabbits at any given time, each of which has been rescued from dire circumstances. Once they arrive at our shelter, every bunny is given a thorough medical examination, and provided with whatever expert care is required to help them recover from physical and emotional wounds. Once they are neutered or spayed, restored to health, and litterbox trained, we begin the search for the perfect loving forever home for each bunny (due to their strong need for social connection, bunnies are only adopted out as pairs, or as singles to be paired with a bunny already in the home).
We believe that every-bunny deserves a second chance, and are therefore a no-kill shelter. Each bunny receives compassionate and loving care for as long as it take for their new human to find them. Our concern for the bunnies also extends beyond the adoption - we provide education on proper rabbit care for all adopters, 24/7 expert advice on bunny health and behavior for rabbit parents, and educational programs for local community groups.
We are a diverse community with one thing in common - we are all committed to helping rabbits and the people who love them. We welcome anyone who is interested in joining our community in this important work!
CO HRS is a fabulous organization! I've had three bunnies, and they were so helpful in providing education and support. I can't say enough good things about them. Everyone there is very knowledgeable. They all care deeply for the bunnies and work so hard -- giving tons of time and love -- to ensure the bunns are happy and healthy. Through the years, I've volunteered with them in a number of capacities. I'm glad I did and enthusiastically recommend others get involved! (Plus, all the bunns are so darn cute and soft. You'll totally melt.)

I've worked in various capacities with the bunnies in this shelter for 5 years now and LOVE being part of the team of volunteers. The orientation and training are terrific, so I felt right off that I could do my jobs well. It's a friendly, well-organized place with many opportunities for helping the wonderful bunnies who make it their home until they can be matched with their "forever family". If you love animals and want to make a meaningful difference for some very deserving rabbits, this is the place you want to volunteer!
I have been one of the toy makers for a few years on and off and I LOVE IT! Making the toys for the rabbits in the shelter to play with and helping raise much needed funds for CO-HRS make it worth the work. I recently got my mother-in-law to help me and we made some really fun and creative toys in only a few hours! I was able to pick out the toys I was interested in making, then was given all the materials and started to work! The folks down at CO-HRS are very passionate and go WAY above and beyond to make sure the rabbits get what they need and more. I cannot say enough good about CO-HRS!
