I'm Megan a 2 year old spay female lop. I weigh about 5 lbs. I was rescued just in the nick of time by a women from the House Rabbbit Society. You see a women was just about to adopt me and make me an outside hutch rabbit. A volunteer from the House Rabbit Society was working at the shelter that day and talked the women out of taking me.

I had been at the shelter for several months and was really getting stressed. You see I'm a little on the shy side and need to meet people on my own terms. The volunteer decided to take me home with her and now I'm in an HRS foster home. I am feeling much more confortable and have become more outgoing. I don't even mind the little dog that she has.


My name is Dixie and I am a very danity and demur bunny with a sweet personality. But I do more than just look pretty! You see I'm very much a cuddle bunny. I feel very confortable when being held. I also can be very acorbatic and love showing off with jumps and leaps in the air.

I am 6 months old and on the small side,weighing about 4 lbs. My brothers Kyle and Kelly are also at the shelter. I was the only girl in the litter. There were four boys and me. Two of my brothers have been adopted and two are still waiting for there home.. So now I'm looking for my forever home.


We are Kelly and Kyle, a pair of 6 month old neutered male rabbits.We are the brother of Dixie who is also up for adoption. We came as a surprise to our family - they thought they had two females rabbits but then one day five baby bunnies were born! Our other two brothers have been adopted, and the rest of us are looking for homes of our own. We are very social and sweet boys. Very approachable and eager to make friends. Were fun bunnies to watch play as we have so much fun exploring our world.

We don't even mind being picked up and cuddled.


Hi, my name is Taylor I'm a 1 year 4 month old English spot rabbit. I had a pretty rough beginning. You see I was found in east Palo Alto with a broken leg. I guess you could say I was a ghetto girl. My luck changed as I was brought to Peninsula Humane Society where a volunteer from House Rabbit Society saw me.

I was taken to Bay Area animal Hospital in Oakalnd and examined by Dr. Harvey. She's the best bunny vet in the world. It was decided that my leg couldn't be saved and would have to be ampputated.

We bunnies who have only three leggs have no special requirments. We can hop and even jump just a well as a four legged rabbit. I have been spayed and am now waitng for my forever home. I interact well with people and have a very sweet personality. I even know how to use a litterbox.


My name is Cindie. I'm a 1 year old spay female lop. I originally came from the San Jose shelter where there were lots of bunnies. When my time ran out I was rescued by the Haven and put in foster care. I was then transferred to a House Rabbit Society foster home in So. San Francisco.

I have an extremely sweet personality and just a lady in every way. I'm always eager to come out of my cage for play time and really enjoy exploring.

I'm Nicholas and I'm a 1 year old male Holland Lop. I'm a very courageous guy. You see I was found in front of someone house with a very serious injury to one of my back legs. Lucky for me I was brought to Peninsula Humane Society and a very nice lady from the House Rabbit Society came and got me. I was then taken to Dr. Carolynn Harvey in Oakland to be examined. My leg had to be removed because of the seriousness of the injury. I had my surgery several months ago and am fully recovered. So now I'm a three legged hopper. You wouldn't even know I only have three legs to hop on as I'm very energetic and playful and extremely outgoing. I love people. I have a little problem with my litterbox habits so I will need a home where someone will be patient with me.

I have been through alot and the first part of my life was pretty rough so my foster mom is looking for an exter special home for me to live in.

Emily is a 9 month old female New Zealand Black. Emily and her sister Isabelle were surrendered by her family to Peninsula Humane Society. The rabbits were being raised for food by the 19 year old daughter. She had been a vegeterian, but then decided to eat meat. She decided to that she would only eat meat that she had raised, butchered and cooked herself. When she butched the first rabbit it went very badly, so she didn't kill anymore. The family then decided to bring the rabbits to the shelter. Isabelle was rescued by HRS Save A Bunny shortly after giving birth. Emily was put up for adoption and when time ran out for her was rescued by the San Francisco Peninsula Chapter of House Rabbit Society.

The volunteers at the shelter really enjoyed working with her and were amazed at how trusting she was of people. She loves to explore and is quite inquisitive. She has a sweet personality and really enjoys being petted. She doesn't mind being picked up or carried.

Harley_Jan05.jpg (100294 bytes)

Hello, I'm Harley an 8 month old neutered Harliquin rabbit. Let me tell you about my story and how I was saved at the 11th hour and rescued by House Rabbit Society. I was found in front of someone house in Daly City and brought to Peninsula Humane Society in San Mateo. I had a wire collar around my neck with a big bell attached to it. My owner probably put it on me when I was a baby not realizing that I would grow. When I got to the shleter the collar had to be cut off it was so tight.

When I arrived at the shelter there were many rabbits there. House Rabbit Society was called and asked if they could take me so I wouldn't be euthanized. A lady from the House Rabbit Society came and got me and now I'm living in a foster home waiting to be adopted. I have a very gentle personality and would make a good frirst time rabbit for someone. Or maybe a companion for a spayed female rabbit

SF_Nooman_1_Feb05.jpg (94412 bytes)
Nooman is a 4 1/2 year old male, dwarf rabbit. He weighs about 3 lbs. and is all black except for a tip of white on one front paw. He is engergetic and playful but can be a little on the shy side when first approached. He can be uncomfortable in the presence of men; we believe he may have been severely mistreated in his former home. He has learned to trust since he has been with us. We are hoping for a home with a single person or a quiet couple who will help Nooman feel secure.  Nooman is one of our Overlooked Treasures.

Hi, I'm Mo, a 9 month-old neutered male, grey chinchilla-color dwarf. Wow that's a mouthful! Let me tell you a little bit about me.

When I was 6 weeks old I was brought to Peninsula Humane Society with an injury to my hind end. We're not sure what happened to me but we think I was injured by a dog or maybe a racoon. HRS came down and rescued me and within a few short weeks of cage rest I was as good as new. I'm able to hop and jump and run with the best of them!  I have a delightful personality and  interact really well with people. Which means, I make friends easy.  I have very good potty habits and keep my cage pretty clean.   I would do best in a home with no young children because of my small size. I only weigh about 3 lbs.

Hello there I'm Higgins a 2 1/2 year old male Rex. I'm a pretty mellow guy but can be very playful during my excercise time. I realy enjoy exploring and make good use of my time in the play area. I also like to do alot of lounging especially in my cage where I can daydream and think about life.

You could say I'm one lucky guy, saved for a reason. When I was at the shelter and my time ran out I was supposed to have been euthanized three different times. The first time my paperwork got misplaced and I was spared. The second time they got busy and I was spared. The third time House Rabbit Society found out about my fate and came down and rescued me. Boy was I lucky!  Now, I know this picture of me on the right is pretty silly. My foster mom was taking a picture of me and I just couldn't resist sticking my tongue out at her. Heehee!!  Come adopt me and we'll have fun!

You see his mom moved from the Bay Area to the East Coast. At the last minute her plans fell through and she was forced to leave Albert and his mate Bun Bun at the local shelter. Bun Bun was quite a few years older then Albert and not in good health. Her health failed while at the shelter and she had to be euthanized. In one week Albert lost his mom, his mate and his home. Luckly House Rabbit Society came and rescued him from the shelter where he was living. Albert is such a mellow guy that she doesn't mind at all and sits very still for all of it. We would like to get Albert another mate as we know he would do well with another rabbit in his life. Until she comes along we are providing him with lots of love.

I'm really a people rabbit and very friendly and inquisitive. When I was at the Peninsula Humane Society my cage was in the front lobby of the shelter where I was a greeter. Sometimes the customer service staff let me sit behind the counter on my own stool. I would offen take a nap there. After the shelter closed I would get to run free behind the counter and sometimes jump into the filing basket or get up on a shelf. I would make a great house rabbit and may I add I have very good litterbox habits.
