Volunteer with your local rescue
Donate supplies (hay, litter, puppy-pens, etc.) to your local rescue
You may also want to put focus on Alabama-based shelters (e.g. Alabama EARS or Huntsville Friends of Rabbits), who may have to accommodate rabbits displaced from the tornadoes in addition to the annual post-Easter influx.

The House Rabbit Society of Missouri has recently taken into their care a rabbit named Easter. He was found by a man in his backyard and was seriously injured.

The surgery is quite expensive and the HRS of Missouri is seeking donations to help defray the cost.
