We accept rescue rabbits into our rabbitry to prevent them from being abandoned, let loose, or sold as food for other animals. These rabbits come from many different backgrounds - and one thing is for certain, they all deserve to be loved.
80% of the time, rescue rabbits come to us due to owners losing interest. A lack of handling/attention can easily cause a rabbit to become skittish and afraid of people. Once the rabbit comes to us, we work extremely hard to get the rabbit to be personable again. However, when the rabbit is transitioned yet again into their new home, it will take a little bit to get them to get used to their new surroundings. Be sure to move slowly when coming towards the rabbit, and be sure to pet gently, so the bun knows that you mean no harm.
If you have any questions regarding your rescue rabbit, please contact us!
We transition all of our rescues onto the same food that we feed. You will receive a transitional feed baggie that you should mix into the new food that you will be feeding your rabbit. They are transitioned to the same type of feedings that we feed our own stock, such as hay, pellets, treats, and water concoction. We also begin to litter train them but they NEED to be continued in their new homes. If you would like more information on proper feed, please click here.
Don't let the appearance of a rescue rabbit scare you from adopting them. The scars, stains and scratches all tell the story of the rabbit. Some rabbits come here with scars covering them, patches of fur missing, others with torn ears, and some with urine and blood stains that are nearly impossible to remove easily. While we do the best we can to groom the bunny, stains take much time to fade away (please, no baths!) Scars of course never go away, and the fur may or may not grow back where the wound once was. No matter what the bun looks like, it is the heart of the rabbit that matters. Each rescue rabbit is looking for their forever home, so please don't pass them by just because of their appearance.
Many people do not realize that a rabbit needs its nails clipped quite often, and that results in extremely overgrown nails. Unfortunately, we can only clip so far (never go past the quick, of course) so it is up to the new owner to continue to cut the nails. Each time the nail is cut properly, the quick will sink backwards a bit towards the nail bed. After a few monthly clippings, your rabbits nails should finally be where they should be.
