animatedLopRabbitHouse Rabbit Society is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization with two primary goals:

  • To rescue abandoned rabbits and find permanent homes for them and
  • To educate the public and assist humane societies, through publications on rabbit care, phone consultation, and classes upon request.

We operate an adoption and education center out of our International Headquarters in Richmond, California.

What is House Rabbit Society’s Philosophy?

House Rabbit Society believes that ALL rabbits are valuable as individuals, regardless of breed purity, temperament, state of health, or relationship to humans. The welfare of all rabbits is our primary consideration.

It is in the best interest of domestic rabbits to be neutered/spayed, to live in human housing where supervision and protection are provided, and to be treated for illnesses by veterinarians.

Domestic rabbits are companion animals and should be afforded at least the same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as commonly afforded to dogs and cats who live as human companions.

The complete text of the House Rabbit Society philosophy is available here.
