How to Adopt

We have approximately 35-40 adoptable rabbits at House Rabbit Society.
Drop in noon-5pm, Tuesday-Sunday, to meet adoptable rabbits.

Planning to adopt? Plan to spend about an hour at House Rabbit Society.
Interested in a particular rabbit? Call ahead to be sure they are still available.
Have a bunny at home? Bring your bunny for speed-dates to find a new friend! On your first visit, we’ll try a few bunnies to find the best match. On your second visit, your bunny will spend more time with their best match, and we’ll make sure you learn what you need to know about the bonding process to be successful bonding them at home, and you’ll adopt your new bunny!

More info: 510-970-7575 & rabbit-center@rabbit.org

Adoption Process

    1. Visit House Rabbit Society and meet rabbits
      Rabbits in the Habitat rooms are ready for adoption. Some rabbits in the New Arrivals room may need to wait here until seen by our vet.
    2. Watch a short video series on how to take care of rabbits
      Our video series will answer many questions about rabbits and help you get your home ready for a bunny. You can watch this below, or when visiting House Rabbit Society, sitting in a pen with a bunny.
    3. Complete the Adoption Questionnaire
      You can complete this and bring it with you or fill this out at House Rabbit Society. A staffer or volunteer will review your questionnaire, ask any questions they might have, and you can ask any rabbit questions you have.
    4. Get your home ready for a rabbit
      Once you have completed steps 1-3 you are ready to adopt, but you may need to get your home ready before bringing a bunny home. Take home rabbit education handouts, or buy the House Rabbit Handbook. Bunny-proof your home. Decide what to buy in terms of enclosure, exercise pen, or other housing, plus food, litter boxes, toys and other care items.
    5. Finalize the adoption and take your rabbit home
      Complete the Adoption Agreement, pay the adoption donation, and take your rabbit home! You are welcome to bring a carrier, or you can purchase one at House Rabbit Society. We have hay, pellets, exercise pens, litter boxes, water bowls and more for sale at our Hop Shop, and proceeds benefit our rescue and education work.

    Adoption Donation

    A single rabbit: $70
    A bonded pair:  $100

    Included with your adoption:

    • spay/neuter – important for a rabbit’s health, litterbox habits, and no accidental litters
    • microchip – free lifetime registration
    • health exam – by trained volunteers while at House Rabbit Society
    • preventative treatment for external & internal parasites
    • coupon – free vet exam at VCA Bay Area in Oakland
    • coupon – free nail trim at House Rabbit Society
    • one-year membership to House Rabbit Society – includes a membership card, discounts on boarding, and a subscription to the House Rabbit Journal

    Adoption Policies

    1. Adult Primary Caregiver
      The primary caregiver of a rabbit will be an adult, the rabbit will be part of the family (i.e., no group ownership, such as a classroom pet), and is wanted by everyone in the household.
    2. Indoor Housing
      Rabbits adopted from House Rabbit Society will live indoors as part of the family. Their primary living space will be indoors, and they will spend every night indoors.  During the day, rabbits can exercise outdoors only with supervision, for their safety.
    3. Spay & Neuter
      For rabbits’ health and behavior, both sexes need to be spayed/neutered. All rabbits adopted from HRS are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, unless a medical condition prohibits it.  If a rabbit is too young, HRS will arrange spay/neuter at the time of adoption and cover the cost.
    4. Bonding
      Rabbits love to have a companion that speaks their language, to snuggle, groom, and keep them company while you’re away at work or school. We recommend adopting a bunny companion for your rabbit.  Bring your spayed/neutered rabbit to HRS for ‘speed dating’ to find the best match.  We require two dates at HRS to ensure the right match and build a strong foundation for the bonding to continue at home.  If you are having difficulty with the bond at home, call us and come in for bonding help at HRS!
    5. Returns
      If you are considering returning a rabbit from HRS, please call us to see if we might be able to help you work through your current problem. If you need to return a rabbit adopted from HRS, we ask you to give us at least 2-4 weeks’ notice.  Rabbits adopted from HRS must be returned to HRS if you are no longer going to keep them.
