During the coronavirus pandemic, some of our regular activities have been temporarily suspended or adjusted to comply with CDC guidelines. But there is some good news. Adoption Days (the second and fourth Sundays of the month) at our Columbia, Maryland, headquarters have been reinstated for vetted adopters. In addition, grooming at Columbia headquarters is back. An appointment is required for both.

Despite the pandemic, we continue to rescue more abandoned/homeless rabbits, pull rabbits from animal shelters throughout the region, rescue unfortunate rabbits who have been released into the wild, provide foster homes for rabbits awaiting adoption, and accept and review adoption applications. We have many wonderful rabbits waiting to be adopted. We encourage you to view them on Petfinder and submit an adoption application so that we can move them into their forever homes as soon as possible.

Our thanks to everyone for your continued support. Please remember to take care of yourself and your loved ones, including the furry ones.

How you can help

Friends of Rabbits is made up of volunteers who simply care about saving bunnies. People are its lifeblood. Without people, Friends of Rabbits would not exist. Friends of Rabbits also works with shelters, holding fund raising events such as spa days so that the shelter rabbits can receive veterinary care or be spayed and neutered.

Are you not sure what you can do? Please look at the volunteer page and see how your time can help.

Donations, both monetary and in-kind, enable Friends of Rabbits to foster, spay or neuter, and find a home for shelter rabbits.

Shop with one of our fundraising partners, and a portion will be given back to Friends of Rabbits.

Or consider adopting, and giving a rabbit their forever home.

Donate to Friends of Rabbits

Your donations make it possible for Friends of Rabbits to care for abandoned and neglected rabbits and find them wonderful forever homes. In 2020, we spent over $75,000 on veterinary care, our single largest expense.

Your support will help us rescue more homeless rabbits in 2021.

Friends of Rabbits recently added 5 nursing litters, 24 new babies!, to the 17 we already had. There will be considerable costs to spay and neuter these bunnies before they can be adopted. Your donation will help prepare them for their fur-ever home.
