We do 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.
Please fill out one form per pet.
If you are surrendering your rabbit due to allergies, behavioral issues, or moving to a non-pet-friendly place, please contact us for possible solutions.
