If you’re ready adopt, please submit an application form. A trusted FoR volunteer will contact you to discuss any questions you may have and to schedule a brief home visit to check out your future pet’s environment. The adoption fee is $90 for a single rabbit and $150 for a bonded pair, which helps to offset the cost of a spay or neuter. Please note that we do not adopt out rabbits to be class pets or for breeding.
Rabbits are very social creatures and are happiest when they have another furry friend to snuggle up to. Particularly if your rabbit will be alone for much of the day, we recommend that you adopt a second rabbit as a companion. However, the bonding process can be quite involved, so Friends of Rabbits assists with bonding at no additional charge.
While they’re away at the bunnymoon, you’ll want to take the time to make your home as neutral as possible - that means cleaning or replacing rugs, litter boxes, and habitats that smell like your first bunny, and providing some new, neutral-smelling toys. When they first come home be prepared for some marking as the bunnies adjust to a new (or new-smelling) place. Keep them confined to a pen or condo for a couple of days to solidify the bond.
