To adopt one or more of our beautiful rabbits, please read the text below and then submit an Adoption Application. Once we receive your completed questionnaire, we’ll contact you. It’s important to submit the application, because we schedule rabbits to go to our adoption venue on the basis of the applications received during the preceding week. We also have application forms Saturdays from 12:30 – 3:30 at our weekly adoption venue in Centinela Pet & Feed Supplies, 3860 S. Centinela Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90066 but if you choose that option, we may not bring the rabbits you would most want to meet on that day. If Saturdays don’t work for you, we’ll make arrangements for you to meet our rabbits on another day–just let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate. We can also bring one or two rabbits to our Sunday adoption venue, every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month between 2-4 at Centinela Pet & Feed Supplies, 1448 Lincoln Bl., Santa Monica, CA 90401.
All rabbits are neutered and house-trained to varying degrees prior to adoption. Adopters receive a care packet, a bag of oat blend hay, and advice for the life of the rabbit. Our modest adoption fee of $60-90 offsets the cost of care and sterilization.
Rabbits can be wonderful companions in the home, but adoption should not be taken lightly. Returning the rabbit can be extremely stressful for everyone involved and is not a good option. Therefore, please consider the following prior to adopting:
BEFORE YOU ADOPT, PLEASE CONSIDER:
- Are you prepared for a commitment of 10+ years to the bunny? What will you do if you move, get married or have children – or if your children lose interest?
- Do you have animals that could endanger the rabbit (many dogs were bred to capture small animals, and rabbits have been known to die of fright without being physically attacked)? Will you be available to supervise your children when they’re around the rabbit? Rabbits are delicate and easily injured.
- Rabbits are not low maintenance pets: preparing veggies, cleaning the litterbox, providing the attention your pet craves (and needs) all require time and a daily commitment. Which adult in the family will be the primary caregiver?
- Does everyone in your family want a rabbit? Does anyone have allergies or asthma? Hay is a necessary part of a rabbit’s diet.
- Can you afford the care of a bunny? Rabbits cost $50-100/month and up. Veterinarians consider them ‘exotics’, so vet care tends to be expensive.
- Do you have the room? You’ll need to have space for a pen, or a room that can be sectioned off for the bunny to live in, but still have the rabbit involved in the home’s daily activities.
Please note we reserve the right to deny adoption when we feel the health and safety of the rabbit may be at risk.
