House Rabbit Society's policy is to not accept owner-surrendered pets.
We do not have the foster space to take them, and it is not our policy to
provide an easy solution for this complex and difficult problem. We'd love
to say "yes" to any rabbit who needs a home, but we simply do not have
For every rabbit we would take in from the relative safety of a private home,
another would die in a shelter. Therefore, we confine our efforts to rescuing
abandoned, abused and neglected rabbits only, since they are in the most imminent
danger. If you're contacting us to rehome your rabbit, your rabbit has an advocate
who cares about him or her, which is you. Most rabbits that we are contacted
about do not have such an advocate.
If the reason you are rehoming is due to behavior issues, health issues, housing issues,
smell or other reasons that, if corrected, would lead you to keep the rabbit, we would love
to help with that situation. The best outcome is if the rabbit stays as a member of your family.
Please change your dropdown selection to "Sick Rabbit" or "Behavior issues" and describe the situation.
A volunteer will contact you and can work with you and your rabbit to remain together.
We encourage you to review our rehoming guide
which might give you some ideas about how to move forward about this particular situation.
If you are a shelter who is looking for help, please change your dropdown selection to
"We're a shelter contacting IHRS".
