    About HRS
    Founded in 1988, we are a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned rabbits and educating the public about rabbit care. We are headquartered in Richmond, California and have over 120 licensed educators and fosterers and 30 local chapters across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Asia. To date we have rescued and found adoptive homes for over 25,200 rabbits. More Info

    Looking for Breeding Information?
    We believe domestic rabbits should live primarily indoors and be neutered or spayed. Overpopulation is big problem, and even breeding your rabbit a single time can have consequences. If you find yourself with an unexpected litter of rabbits, we do have some general information about newborn babies that may be of use.
