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.
Welcome to the Friends Of Rabbits website!
Friends of Rabbits is a 501c3, nonprofit rabbit rescue group based in the Washington DC / Baltimore greater metropolitan area. We primarily take domestic house rabbits in from crowded and high-kill shelters in the region, in addition to stray domestic rabbits.
Please note: we are not licensed to handle wildlife.
Friends of Rabbit's fundraising partnerships give back to the bunnies.
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.
