Mission Statement

San Diego House Rabbit Society: Supporting local shelters, educating the public, and serving the needs of companion rabbits in our community - for nearly 20 years!


San Diego House Rabbit Society is a volunteer driven, nonprofit rabbit welfare organization. We rescue, adopt to new homes, and assist local shelters to adopt out, well over 100 domestic rabbits per year. Some of these rabbits have run out of time at animal shelters and were scheduled for euthanasia; others were deemed "unadoptable" because of age, health or disposition.

All incoming HRS foster rabbits are spayed or neutered, given necessary veterinary care and have their social needs attended to. HRS foster parents spend time getting to know each rabbit in order to match him or her with an appropriate home. No rabbits in HRS foster care are euthanized because they have "run out of time." Additionally, rabbits are also kept in our new Adoption Center/shelter.

In addition to adoption and rescue, San Diego HRS is an invaluable resource to the rabbit community. HRS provides:

- Education on the care of rabbit companions

- Referrals to local rabbit-experienced exotic veterinarians and emergency clinics

- The first "rabbit only" spay/neuter rebate program in the country

- High-quality, lower cost supplies and freshly boxed hay for local rabbit families

- An informative website, telephone hotline and email information service to answer questions about rabbit behavior and care

- The first "rabbit only" shelter in San Diego county

- Classes on rabbit care that are free or low-cost to the public

I adopted my male bunny Sebastian at the Bonita animal shelter. The San Diego House Rabbit Society had volunteers that helped take care of Sebastian and several other bunnies at this shelter. He was healthy and socialized by the time I adopted him. They also had plenty of bunny literature on hand and I was given an informative bunny care book to take home with me. I now have two bunnies that I love very much and I continue to visit the SDHRS website for tips on how to feed and care for my bunnies and also where to find qualified bunny vets. It is a great one-stop shop for any bunny related information ~ thanks SDHRS!
