Adoption and Education Center Update
Many thanks to our online supporters who donated the funds to construct a mandated dumpster enclosure. We've found a contractor, obtained a permit and construction will begin in the next few weeks. We've held three volunteer construction events to build the adoptable runny habitats, and our quarantine kennels have also arrived. We hope to announce an opening date soon. More info...

Your donations are still needed for vet care, spays and neuters, and other ongoing expenses associated with our rescue efforts. Can you make a secure online donation to help? no amount is too small.

    Useful Tip: Sock Toy
    Take an all-cotton thick athletic sock and split the top in half with two vertical cuts through the ribbing. Put about 3 Tbs. of hay in the toe, followed by 1 Tbs. of oat groats, followed by 1/3 cup pellets, followed by 1/2 to 3/4 cup hay (depending on sock size). Then squeeze the fat part through the top of the cage and tie the sock top around the wire in a double knot so just the fat part is hanging in Bunny's cage. For more info on fun rabbit toys, check out our Toy FAQ.
