NATIONAL HRS RESCUE EMERGENCY FUND
House Rabbit Society has started a Rescue Emergency Fund in order to help other rabbit rescue organizations. All donations coming in that specify "Rescue Emergency Fund" will go exclusively towards this fund. We will use those funds to make small, targeted grants to animal rescue organizations who are involved in a large rescue. Funds can be used to purchase cages, litterboxes, food, hay or toys, or can be used to fund spay/neuters and other veterinary care. We will keep our members informed
via this webpage of how many dollars have been raised, and what rescue situations have been funded. To make a DONATION to this fund, be sure to include "Rescue Emergency Fund" in the description field of the online donation form (donations via snail mail are also gratefully accepted). Read more and find out which groups have benefited from these funds.

    Wild Bunnies May Not Need Your Help!
    Wild rabbits only nurse for a few minutes at night, and moms vanish the rest of the day. If you've disturbed a nest, put the babies back and restore the fur/grass covering; the mother will move them over the next 48 hours. More info...

    About HRS
    Founded in 1988, we are a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned rabbits and educating the public about rabbit care. We are headquartered in Richmond, California and have over 120 licensed educators and fosterers and 30 local chapters across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Asia. To date we have rescued and found adoptive homes for 20,000 rabbits. More Info

    Looking for Breeding Information?
    We believe domestic rabbits should live primarily indoors and be neutered or spayed. Overpopulation is big problem, and even breeding your rabbit a single time can have consequences. If you find yourself with an unexpected litter of rabbits, we do have some general information about newborn babies that may be of use.
