Alfie liked to pick fights with the dozens of rabbits he lived around in a mostly outdoor situation when he was allowed time out of his hutch. Alfie came to us with a torn nose and ears after being too interested in his neighbors. Now that Alfie is indoors and neutered, he's excited to be part of the goings-on of the household. Alfie has a ton of personality and we think will be lots of fun. He's a bit messy/mischevious too. :)
Alfie has mostly recovered from a snotty nose but we are still trying to keep his nose dry. More antibiotics! Now that he is mostly feeling better, he'd like to meet you! He's a very fun bunny and begs for pets. He likes to throw his red tambourine and do big bunny binkies at playtime.

Poor Aurora had been set free and fended for herself for a few months in an Indianapolis neighborhood. Neighbors were feeding her when possible, but could not catch her. Then the polar vortex arrived! With "high" temperatures below zero (and wind chills at -40 F!!) one neighbor contacted animal control and our rescue to see if we could help get her to a safe place.

IHRS volunteers gathered in our most frigid capture conditions ever - wearing lots of layers of clothing and winter gear - and thanks to neighbors who had conditioned Aurora to come to them for food, we were able to catch her in less than 15 minutes! Lucky girl was caught on the first evening of the terribly cold weather just before the overnight temperature became an extreme frostbite risk. Aurora spent a week at animal control to sort out her stray condition, and then we were able to pull her to our foster care program.

Aurora is enjoying her indoor life of comfort and plentiful nutrition. She is curious and chilled out. Once she is spayed, she will be available for adoption! We are so happy we could help her before the very real risk of freezing to death could have happened.

Brady is new to rescue! He was surrendered to a shelter in Anderson, IN. He will be available for adoption once he is healed from neuter.
His foster home says:
Brady is such a sweet snuggle boy! He loves to jump on the couch and hang out with you, as long as you are giving pets of course. He is a great free roam candidate and extremely social. Whoever surrendered this boy made a huge mistake!

Curly was found as a stray in Greenwood, very skinny and with eye infection. She was turned into an Indiana shelter, who helped get her weight back up and treated her eyes. But Curly was kind of stuck at the shelter... they didn't have a spay/neuter connection, and Curly was getting cranky about being there. IHRS came in to take Curly to foster care after she'd been at the shelter a couple of months. One thing we discovered while at the shelter: Curly has terribly maloccluded incisors! One of her top teeth curled right out of her mouth, and the others were really wonky. Since rabbits' teeth grow continuously, this condition will only get worse and will lead to starvation.

Ms. Curly received a prompt dental exam from an experienced rabbit veterinarian. She has now had two dental surgeries with multiple extractions and more are likely. Unfortunately, Curly's cheek teeth (molars) are even worse than her incisors. She has had a CT scan to help the vet perform the dental surgeries with the best information possible.

Once Curly is stable with her dental woes (which may also fix her ongoing eye discharge and grooming issues), she will be available for adoption. She has an unknown future with her teeth and therefore would need a very special adopter with access to a great rabbit vet with dental skill. We are supporting Curly with special foods and antibiotics for her dental infections... she's having a hard time eating.

Curly is curious and thankful for food and attention. She could use your well wishes and your financial support as she recovers! She has a great spirit and says to keep the apple-banana flavored Critical Care coming!

Meet Amazing Grace, IHRS' wonder girl! She came from an environment where she did not receive the attention she deserved. Thankfully IHRS brought her into foster care got her medical care and the attention and affection she deserved =:3

Grace is a very people-focused rabbit who love, love, loves to be petted :) She will follow you around begging for treats. Grace is kind to other rabbits and may like a bunny friend.

Can you provide Grace a home where she can be cherished?

Poor Kenzo was let free by a cruel owner and this did not go well for him. IHRS captured him on the second try once a good Samaritan contacted us to help; he had been living under decks and vehicles and in yards for months. Neighbors were feeding him but he did not want to be caught by them. But he learned carrots were pretty good, so he hopped right up to one of our volunteers and practically climbed in the net for a carrot. Kenzo was scared and in pain, and cried out when we moved him into the pet carrier.

Kenzo received pain and parasite relief upon capture and headed straight to the exotic vet. He is emaciated, has wounds on his body, and has ear mites so bad that his large ears are completely blocked with heavy crusts - so heavy his once tall ears are falling down. We know he is in pain and starving; his body is all bones and he sits crookedly. We even have to be careful how we "help" him because his condition is so poor it is not very safe to give fluids, handle, or even sedate him. He is now eating and drinking fairly well and he's inside a warm home in foster care, but he has a lot of recovery ahead.

Kenzo will be provided with pain relief, antibiotics, medications to eliminate the mites, and other supportive care to keep him comfortable and healing. Once he is feeling better and puts on a lot of weight, he will hopefully be well enough for neuter and adoption. The pictures posted are his state at capture, and we know they are disturbing. We are keeping him quarantined from other foster rabbits and hope to have healing pictures soon!

Luna was a stray bunny for several months who found herself at a southern Indiana shelter! . She seems to be curious and friendly and she has a beautiful satin coat. She likes to hang out on the couch with her foster family.

During her spay, the vet discovered Luna has problems with her cheek teeth. She had a dental procedure with adjustments to her teeth. She has a missing tooth and we are monitoring her eating and the frequency of dental treatments. She is provided with special foods and will be available for adoption once her dental condition is stable.

Mancala, Marla's baby #5, was born Labor Day 2014. She was a Mini-Me of mama - white with gray spots and racing stripe - and had helicopter ears for awhile but now has uppy ears.

Mancala has a fun spirit and likes to play and cause a ruckus. She is ready for adoption with her sister Jenga. The girls are rather shy - they need an understanding home who will let them be bunnies. Mancala is more outgoing and will accept pets. They love to hang out all day and beg for snacks! Are you ready to give these siblings their forever home? They'll do a Bunny 500 every morning for you about 6 a.m. :)

This is a sad story with a mostly happy ending.

Sometimes a picture says a thousand words. An Indiana shelter who doesn't handle a lot of rabbits posted a picture of a rabbit with some very serious medical problems and IHRS couldn't say no. Maru was pulled from this shelter because he was in need of immediate and intensive medical intervention to give him a chance to survive and thrive. He had severe urine scalding (all of the fur was missing from his underside) and bloody, infected sores on all four feet. He also showed some immobility to a rear leg. While Maru was found dumped in a parking lot, we have seen similar painful foot sores from rabbits being housed in wire bottomed cages. We assume Maru acquired his condition from such housing and then was set free to fend for himself - he could barely walk!! - when his owner did not want to deal with his medical needs. Maru's level of scald and sore hocks was far worse than other rabbits we've taken into rescue.

Maru was provided with immediate veterinary care, starting with strong pain relief. Over weeks of antiseptic cleaning, antibiotics, ointments, and pain medicine, and housing on very special wicking flooring to keep him dry, Maru started to be able to walk. It took weeks before he could even lie down comfortably.

Maru was scheduled for surgery on the worst of his foot sores, but supportive care and acupuncture and laser therapy led to great healing! Maru avoided surgery on his back feet.

Unfortunately his front feet began to have more problems. The open sores healed, but the infection had deteriorated the bones of his wrists and feet. Eventually one wrist broke completely as the connective tissue no longer held together. The other wrist is tentatively intact but shows similar changes on x-ray.

Guess what? Maru doesn't care. He has a crazy turn to one front paw, but he hops on the funky wrist and elbow. He uses a special litterbox with a low side so he doesn't stress his joints jumping in and out.

Maru LOVES being part of the family action. He begs for treats and pets. He later survived liver lobe torsion surgery and is still as happy and friendly as ever. Maru inspires us because he doesn't let his disability get in the way of his enjoyment of life.

We would love for Maru to find his forever family. His family gets all the love Maru has to give. :) In exchange, his family needs to be prepared for additional medical needs. Right now Maru is stable and needs no special care other than some housing accommodations: low sided litterbox, soft flooring, restricted from jumping. What we don't know is if his front feet will deteriorate further. This may mean arthritis and mobility issues, or possibly future amputation of one or both front feet and accommodations that would accompany that physical change, perhaps prosthetics and wheelchairs.

If you are that special family who is able to see to Maru's future needs, he'd really love to meet you. We love Maru in foster care but wish for him to have his own forever home with even more attention than we can give.

Additionally, if you feel called to contribute to Maru's medical expenses, he would be very gratefu! https://www.gofundme.com/ihrs-emergency-rescue-fund

Hi. I'm Owen. I have a tattoo in my ear that says "Zin," but I don't like that name anymore. It reminds me of my past and since coming to IHRS, I am a new bunny!

I used to be in a tiny cage housed in bad conditions. When I was rescued, I was very sick and wasn't sure if I was going to make it. A team of donors, volunteers and vets rallied to support me and I pulled through! I'm neutered and on the mend, though as I write this, I still have some sniffles that I'm being treated for. I'm also on a special diet to help me continue to get and stay healthy and happy.

I'm very friendly and social. I love to be pet and am VERY interested in you and what you are doing. I am looking for an owner that that I will be the apple of your eye and receive a TON of attention. I'd be good with children (as long as they are careful of my fragile small body). I have excellent litterbox habits and I am quite tidy and non-destructive. My foster Mom says I am an excellent free range bunny!

I have been in foster care for 2 years. I have a TON of love to give, will you let me love you?

Hello there!

I'm Phoebe. I've been at hotel IHRS for a while now and I'm starting to figure out who I am. My previous guardians didn't want me anymore, so they let me go in a field behind a restaurant in Mooresville, IN. Even after all that, I have a clean bill of health and feel great! I am a tough cookie, so I survived, but let me tell you it was not easy.

I'm thankful that the IHRS rescued me from the dangers that surrounded me and provided me a warm place to live, good food, keep me healthy and make friends with me. Sometimes, however, I miss the wide-open spaces that I had. I'm independent. I want space ... as much as you can give me! I can take care of myself and I've done it before, but I'm glad that I don't have to anymore. I like attention from my hoomans but I'm still working on trust issues. I don't know if I suffered trauma from my last hoomans or just turned a little wild after being out on my own. I'm still working through that with my therapist, lol.

I'm curious and playful. I also like to climb up on things. I have good litter box habits, but I always want a litter box nearby. A girl should have to go to far to go to the bathroom, you know? Sometimes I like to be pet, but I have to be in the mood. That may change if I get to spend more and more time with you (and give me Oxbow cookies). I'm very cute (and I know it) and I like to make you laugh. I'm not sure if I'll ever be a lap bunny though. And I'm not really sure about bunking with another rabbit. It would take a very special one to be my roommate -- one who won't cramp my style. I'd probably like it better to have my own space.

So what do you think? Do you have what it takes to earn my trust? It might take awhile, but it will be super rewarding when you earn it, I promise you that!

Our primary vet contacted IHRS to see if we could help a special bunny who was brought to them.

Meet Red Ryder. She was a stray in Avon, Indiana, and a good Samaritan brought her to the clinic. Someone had been shooting a BB gun at her... she had four BBs lodged in her body!!

Red Ryder had two surgeries to remove the BBs. She is healed now and appreciates your healing thoughts and donations to her significant medical care. Only two of the BBs could be reached at the first surgery. We monitored her healing while the other BBs remained where they landed - near her trachea and scapula - and then Ryder had advanced imaging ultrasound to determine exact location and if the foreign objects could be reached. Another BB was able to be removed after the ultrasound, which is great because infection was setting in. But for now, the fourth remains embedded near her carotid artery.

At this time she is acting great, like nothing is wrong. We are hopeful that there will be no further complications with the BB that remains. As long as that area does not become infected, Ryder has a good chance at an uneventful life! Her adopter needs to be aware of this situation in case she should present with complications (such as pain leading to GI slowdown/changes in eating habits).

Red Ryder's condition is stable so she is now available for adoption! Check out the additional pictures in her profile for radiographs of the BBs.

Special thanks to the clinic staff who agreed to foster Red Ryder until we could make a traditional foster space for her. Often the rescue is beyond full but we need to help bunnies like this little girl somehow! Your financial support for her significant medical care is appreciated.

Rubik is a fantastic boy who has been waiting for his forever home for a long time! He was born in foster care, and he's been lucky to have only known the life of a pampered house rabbit. He can be shy at first, but once he knows you he loves to come see what people are doing and wants to be petted - if you happen to have treats or his food, he's VERY interested! He loves to play with baby keys and stacking cups, and a new willow basket never lasts long. He's very sweet, and has done really well with children in his foster home (we strongly recommend supervised interaction between children and rabbits; rabbits are pretty fragile, and it's best if children interact with them on the floor). He may also be a good candidate for pairing with a girlfriend. Rubik has excellent litter box habits, and is a pretty tidy boy in general.

Poor little Sprite and a bunny friend were let go outdoors to fend for themselves. On a cold November day, IHRS heard about this stray bunny and went to catch her. We learned from residents at the nearby apartment complex the bunnies had been set free many months before. They lived outside all spring and summer, and the friend bunny disappeared. :(

We caught Sprite and she has some serious medical issues. We treated her for her fleas and mites. Radiographs and blood tests have not revealed what is causing her "drunken" condition. Sprite is very wobbly when standing or walking and has a hard time keeping herself clean. She appears to have a neurological condition. It's a miracle Sprite survived as long as she did, not only because of her compromised health, but because a white bunny is easily spotted by predators.

Sprite is very happy to be warm and fed now. She will need support for her veterinary bills. We will continue to help Sprite feel better so she can have a loving family of her own someday. She is now spayed and will be available for adoption once healed, to a family who can provide for her special needs.

It is illegal and cruel to set a pet bunny free outdoors. Sprite is very lucky she made it to rescue!!

Giant French Angora
Female
Age: 3 years 10 months
Weight: 9.5 lbs.

Tikvah came from a large confiscation where she had to compete for food with dozens of other rabbits. As a result, her foster Mom has worked with her to resolve some fairly significant food insecurity issues.

Tikvah is an extremely cautious rabbit as human hands in her original home did not treat her with kindness. She trusts her foster Mom implicitly and now enjoys gentle pets from her. New people definitely frighten Tikvah, we are working with her to help her feel more secure in new situations.

Tikvah is the most intelligent rabbit her foster Mom has ever met. She will need an adopter with a great deal of patience and experience working with animals that are slow to trust. The ideal adopter “speaks rabbit” fluently, will take things at a pace Tikvah is comfortable with (slowly), quietly cheering her on when she makes progress, and will not take things personally when she stumbles.

Tikvah is an Angora rabbit who will require frequent grooming. Her foster Mom keeps her fur trimmed short to prevent matting. She will provide coaching to Tikvah’s adopter.

Can you provide Tikvah with the love, patience, and kindness she needs to feel safe and secure?

This sweet, sweet young rabbit was discarded like trash in an Indianapolis dumpster. Luckily a Good Samaritan found her and surrendered her to a local shelter. One person’s trash is now Indiana HRS’ treasure. We have named this sweet girl, Trésor, the French word for treasure!

Trésor is very people focused and enjoys petting and human interaction. She responds to her name and is a HUGE treat beggar :). Trésor is incredibly tidy and has excellent litterbox habits!

Trésor is spayed and is ready for her forever home. Are you the special person that will show this lucky lady the long term commitment that she deserves?

Trooper came to us from an Anderson, IN shelter, where he had arrived as part of an eviction/abandonment situation. Little Trooper is super cute and shiny. He is a friendly little guy and we are glad to have him join us!

Poor Trooper was found to have some dental disease while the vet was performing his neuter. Later Trooper had dental surgery; we think his several missing teeth may be a congenital condition. We need to see how long Trooper can go between dental adjustments before we can advise an adopter of his future medical needs. Right now Trooper is doing well and eating like it's not bothering him!

Trooper will need an adopter who is willing to stay on top of his dental needs with a very experienced rabbit vet. He is a gentle bunny that loves to snuggle with his foster Dad.

Are you Trooper’s special adopter?

Uriah was pulled from a municipal shelter when his time ran out. He has some health challenges that will require a special adopter. Uriah has head tilt that resulted from fluid in his inner ears. The head tilt does not stop him from acting like a typical house rabbit - he wakes his foster mom up every morning to give him his Oxbow treat and pelleted food. Uriah has no idea that he is different than anybunny else :)

Despite his health challenges, Uriah is an incredibly sweet, friendly, curious rabbit. Uriah does not let his past, represented by his tattered ears, diminish the light radiating from inside him. This little guy is an inspiration, period.

When Uriah developed head tilt, three stuffed toy bunnies helped him stay upright. He regularly grooms all three rabbits. His foster mom thinks Uriah would really love a companion.

Uriah is an Angora, he requires periodic grooming. His foster Mom keeps his fur trimmed short so that he does not develop mats. She is willing to provide coaching/grooming to Uriah’s adopter.

Uriah is supported with monthly holistic health care to keep him happy and healthy. Are you Uriah’s special adopter?
