Rabbit Adoption Questionnaire

Thank you for your interest in adopting a homeless rabbit! The Indiana House Rabbit Society is all-volunteer, member-supported non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion rabbits.

The goal of IHRS' adoption program is to match rabbits with families to best accomodate the needs and interests of both. Please complete the following application so we can get to know you better and to begin the adoption process.

The Adoption Process

The IHRS has an adoption process that is followed for all standard adoptions. To complete the process you will take the following steps:

  • Complete this adoption questionnaire. Upon completion of the questionnaire, you will receive an email with some information and the next steps.

  • Review the email and the material provided to prepare the adoption consultation.

  • Once you have reviewed the information and replied to the email per the instructions, you will sign up for an adoption consultation either via the email you received or the screen you view after the submission of this questionnaire. **Note: failure to take this step will be considered as a withdrawal from the process.

  • Complete an adoption consultation conducted by an adoption coordinator. This takes about an hour. We use this interview for you to get to know us better, and for us to get to know you better, including your previous experience, knowledge of living with and caring for a house rabbit, and preferences to help us help you find the right match for your family. We want to make the adoption successful for you and your family so that we know we have found a forever home for our rabbit or rabbits.

  • Once approved as an adopter after the consultation, we will work with you to arrange a time to do a "meet and greet."

  • At the meet and greet, you will meet several rabbits that would be good candidates for you according to your preferences, living arrangements, and feedback based on the rabbits' foster care providers who know their personality traits best. Here, if you meet your companion or companions, you'll complete an adoption contract, pay the adoption fee according to your adoption arrangements, and take your new companion home to become a member of your family and change your life!
