MHRR Rabbit Wait List

Most rabbits are on our wait list for over a month.

The more information we have, the faster they are likely to get adopted off of the wait list before we have a spot open.

PLEASE EMAIL US PICTURES. 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 keeps several rabbits throughout our foster homes year-round, we do not have a public shelter. Most of our rabbits are located in and around Baton Rouge, LA, including Baker and Covington. We can only keep as many as our foster homes can hold, and that number fluctuates depending on home availability as well as if rabbits are housed together. Even though we have so many up for adoption, we have to keep a waiting list of rabbits asking for our assistance 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 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. The wait for a spot in a foster home sometimes depends on the size and number of rabbits being surrendered, as some foster homes cannot house pairs, etc. While we are blessed to have spare cages in storage for emergencies and such, we already have as many as we can fit space-wise inside our foster homes so 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, and we also put them in the public's eye on our Facebook page. When photos are sent, we put them in a dedicated Waiting List photo album on our Facebook page. 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.
