We’ve compiled the following list of rabbit rescue and education resources for our friends who live outside of the USA. This list includes rabbit rescue groups whose principles and practices we support, including HRS chapters and HRS allies (marked with an * and a rabbit on the map), and independent rescue groups.

These groups follow HRS guidelines as follows:

  • spay/neuter all rabbits
  • keep rabbits indoors
  • adopt to indoor homes only
  • provide educational material with adopted rabbits

An independent rescue group is a shelter or rescue who does good work for rabbits but is not an HRS chapter or HRS ally. Independent rescuers are unaffiliated with HRS; we provide these listings as a service to the public for areas where there are no HRS chapters or HRS allies. Apply to be listed as an independent rescue group.
An HRS Ally is a group that professes to have similar purposes and philosophy; signs an annual pledge with HRS, may/may not be incorporated; operates fostering and education programs that may/may not follow HRS guidelines; may/may not have licensed HRS Educators, and will be listed on the HRS website as an Ally. HRS does not investigate allies’ facilities or practices, and allies can use HRS materials but not the HRS name or logo. Allies’ rabbits are not the responsibility of HRS. Apply to be an HRS Ally.
