We are an adoption and educational non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, proper care, and ultimately, the adoption of rabbits and guinea pigs commonly kept as pets. Our goal is to find permanent indoor homes for these animals that have been abandoned or surrendered to the NYC Animal Care Center, providing medical care and a foster home as needed prior to adoption. We also provide services in helping to bond your rabbit with a partner rabbit, for those looking to get a friend for their bun!
We take animals from ACC and care for them in foster homes provided by volunteers. We can always use more foster homes, so if you are interested, please fill out a foster application in the dropdown menu! We are also currently working on finding a physical space to house our rabbits.
* Because of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the the recent US outbreak of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease, we have temporarily relocated all PetSmart rabbits to foster homes with volunteers until both outbreaks are over. We are still very much active with adoptions though, so please continue reaching out to us if you're interested in any of the rabbits on our adoptables page!
Danny was found on a pile of garbage with a broken back, and as soon as two good samaritans contacted us about the situation, we had this poor bun rushed to care and medical treatment. A broken back is a severe injury and will take time and money to heal, and Danny's prognosis isn't certain even after treatment, but we will do everything we can to give him a second chance. Anything you can contribute to support him is much appreciated!
February is Adopt-A-Rabbit month!
This little man was dumped at the Animal Care Center this past September, woefully thin and filthy. Thin because his incisors were so overgrown he couldn’t eat and filthy because he was unable to clean himself. We pulled Buster the day we were contacted and rushed him to our veterinarian who immediately trimmed his teeth and upon closer inspection of his mouth, found he also had rotted molars that literally fell out as the exam continued. His bloodwork was all over the place, including being anemic. We had to leave him there for a week to just stabilize him. Once he went into a foster home, he continued to improve and last week we were able to extract his incisors and then a few days later, neuter him. This has come at a huge price: $2700! Please help us replace this money so we can help the next one like Buster.
We have launched a fundraiser for Midnight and her 7 baby buns to help with spay and neuter costs. This is important because when rabbits are allowed to breed like this, it creates a need to find good homes for them that is often difficult to fulfill, especially with rabbits having such large litters. Thank you for your help!
