If you’ve done your homework and determined that you and your family are ready to welcome a rabbit into your home, then consider adoption!
Rabbit rescues and animal shelters are continually overrun with homeless rabbits. There are bunnies of all ages, shapes, and sizes just waiting for their forever homes. A shelter volunteer can help match you up with just the right bunny (or pair of bonded bunnies).
Plus, adopting a rabbit from a rescue or shelter doesn’t just benefit the bunny. Many rescues litter train the rabbits in their care and acclimate them (if needed) to living inside the home. Further, if the rabbits are mature enough, most rescues will have the rabbits neutered/spayed. This will save you money on vet bills for the procedure.
To find out more reasons to adopt a rabbit from a shelter as opposed to purchasing one from a breeder or pet store, see our article, “Benefits of Adopting a Pet Rabbit.”
If you’re ready to find a bunny in your area, you can start with PetFinder or you can check out the House Rabbit Society website for links to all of their regional chapters.
We did not know that – a Great idea. More good homes for wonderful pets …
