Featured Rabbit Organization: Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society

The Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society (MCRS) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion rabbits.

MCRS works to let people know that domestic rabbits can and do make wonderful companions, as long as you are willing to meet them on their terms. They teach Bunny Basics classes, maintain a phone and email hotline so that people can contact them with questions or problems, and generally try to keep rabbits and their human companions living happily together.

The organization also hosts regular Hoppy Hour events, in which bunnies can come to romp and play with other bunnies. These socialization events are held at three locations around the Twin Cities. All rabbits must be spay/neutered and be in good health in order to participate.

Featured Rabbit Rescue: Buckeye House Rabbit Society

The Buckeye House Rabbit Society, based in Athens, OH, is a chapter of the national House Rabbit Society. Serving Ohio since 1997, their all-volunteer, federally-recognized, non-profit organization rescues abandoned rabbits and educates the public about rabbit care.

With representatives in Athens, Canton, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Toledo, and a growing number of volunteers, they work to bring Ohioans up-to-date information about adopting and caring for indoor companion rabbits.

International Rabbit Day 2014

It’s International Rabbit Day!  This weekend is dedicated to promoting the well-being of rabbits everywhere- from pet rabbits, to wild rabbits, to lab rabbits, and more.

How can we as rabbit lovers make a difference in a rabbit’s life?  Here are a few ways:

  • Make sure you are providing a safe, healthy, enriching indoor home for your pet rabbit. Take a look at our Rabbit Care and Rabbit Behavior sections for information about proper diet, indoor housing, bunny proofing, enrichment, and more. Our article, How to Care for a Pet Rabbit, provides a basic overview. Share the article with other rabbit owners!
  • Boycott and/or peacefully protest companies and organizations whose practices exploit rabbits (from product testing, to selling rabbit meat, to fur-farming, to conducting rabbit rodeos/scrambles, etc.).
  • Support cruelty-free companies.  Look for the Leaping Bunny logo on products. You can do a product search here.
