MHRR Rabbit Wait List*
Update: MAY 31st 2022
Due to the high volume of requests already received, we are only able to accept emergency cases (medical issue rabbits and/or strays).

We are are unable to take in owner surrenders for the summer Please visit our website for tips on rehoming on your own.



Most rabbits are on our wait list for over 3 months.

The more information we have, the faster they are likely to get adopted off of the wait list before we have a spot open (especially if they are already spayed/neutered).


Rabbits are MUCH more likely to get adopted off the wait list if we have pictures. The best email address to use in regards to the wait list is: <- This is our main wait list email.

****Please fill out one form per pet if housed separately****

MHRR is a network of foster homes - we do not have a public shelter. Most of our rabbits are located in and around Baton Rouge, LA.

We can only keep as many as our foster homes can hold, and that number fluctuates depending on number of foster homes. Even though we have so many up for adoption, we have to keep a waiting list of rabbits as the intake requests outnumber the adoptions, just like cat and dog rescues. We regret telling any rabbit no for the time being, but we must take proper care and provide appropriate housing, food, and vetting for the ones already in our care.

Summer is the hardest time as adoptions are less frequent (vacations, summer camps) and intake requests increase (college students moving, gets too hot for outdoor rabbits), but we try to keep the list going year round.
We try to prioritize for urgent or time-sensitive cases, and rabbits in animal control facilities where euthanasia is a possibility are top priority. Rabbits being returned from adoption are also top priority. Otherwise we try to take in rabbits in the order of date the requests were received. Donating a cage or habitat will not usually quicken the wait time.

Even though we may not have a spot in a foster home open, we do still try to help find an adopting family for our waiting list rabbits. We ask for information & photos if possible for the list in case we get inquiries for particular breeds or personalities. We occasionally find an adopter before a rabbit's turn is up on the list, especially if it is a commonly requested breed! If this happens, we require that the adopter submit an adoption application prior to us taking in the rabbit. If approved, the rabbit will be brought to our veterinary clinic for a health check and spay/neuter if not already altered, then the new family will be able to take their new bunny home.

After Submitting a form: PLEASE EMAIL YOUR PETS PICTURES TO: (Include your name, pet's name, and wait list in the subject, this is our main email address to keep track of wait list bunnies.)
