Are you the right kind of person to live with a rabbit? Would a rabbit be the right pet for you? Rabbits make wonderful companions for the right people.

  • Are you patient?
  • Have a sense of humor?
  • Do you enjoy watching the movements and learning the language of another species?
  • Does your schedule include plenty of time at home?
  • Are you comfortable spending a lot of time on the floor?
  • Are you not overly fussy with your furniture?

The House Rabbit Society has many wonderful bunnies many rescued from euthanasia at the animal shelter- available for adoption. Contact your local House Rabbit Society chapter to find out if you are the right person to provide a special home for a special rabbit.
