The Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary in Willis, Michigan is the largest rabbit rescue in the US, housing 550 rabbits. You can read more about the sanctuary in an earlier Rabbit Rescue Spotlight post on our bunny blog or at the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary website.
I love seeing photos of the place with all the permanent residents hopping around in their fenced-in rabbit pastures. Here is a recent photo from The Ann Arbor News. Celeste Defellici had called out “TREATS!” and all the bunnies came running.
The Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary is in need of donations – leafy greens or a monetary contribution. If you would like to help, call 734-461-1726, or visit the website at www.rabbitsanctuary.org.
The dedicated volunteers at Midwest Rabbit Rescue & Re-home will be participating in a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Royal Oak, MI on Saturday, March 15, at 11 am. Donning bunny ears, the volunteers will be holding banners and passing out information about their rescue and their quest to win a million dollar shelter makeover from Zootoo.com.
Well I just came across this story about Midwest Rabbit Re-home, which is located near Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In seeing photos of Midwest Rabbit Re-home’s current shelter, it does look like a makeover is in order. As of now, they are using an old warehouse as their shelter, and while they’ve done the best they can to fix up the space, a million dollar grant would go a long way.
Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary, located at an old farm in Whittaker, MI, is the largest rabbit rescue in the US. Currently, their rabbit population has reached 550, with 75 adoptable bunnies and 475 feral rabbits. The rabbits up for adoption live in pens while the feral rabbits live outdoors in two large enclosures. There, the rabbits have dug an elaborate warren, but come out to play in the snow and run around.
