WALK-IN RABBIT VISITATION NOT AVAILABLE: Due to the highly contagious and deadly Rabbit Hemorrhagic Virus, we limit foot traffic in the rabbit areas. Rabbit visitation is only available to those who have an appointment to adopt or foster. To schedule an appointment to meet our rescued rabbits, speak with our Rescue Shelter manager/volunteers, please submit an adoption application in order for us to set up an appointment with you. (This doesn't commit you to adopt. It just helps us organize our visitors.) Our HOP SHOP STORE is open to walk-ins.
Rabbits can live to be 10-14 years old. Are you ready for that commitment? If so, read on!
Before you begin the process of adoption, please keep in mind: 1) We do not allow any GHRS rabbit to be housed (or exercised) outside at any time. 2) Rabbits aren't good pets for young children. 3) Our rabbits must come back to us for rehoming if you ever find yourself unable to care for them. 4) WE ALWAYS ACCEPT OUR ADOPTED RABBITS BACK INTO OUR PROGRAM.
Please check out our Care & Diet section to become familiar with the specific needs of a rabbit and how to keep them healthy and happy.
We have an adoption fee of $100 for a single rabbit or $150 for an already bonded pair. This fee helps recover some of the cost of the spay/neuter and RHDV-2 vaccination for each rabbit.
We have everything you will need for your rabbit at our onsite Hop Shop and all of the items we carry in our store are safe for your rabbit. Our prices are competitive or lower than pet store prices AND when you purchase at our store, you will be supporting the care for our adoptable rabbits. All profits go directly toward funding the shelter and providing vet care, food, and housing. If you choose to purchase your supplies from a pet store instead, please let us know and we can help you avoid buying unnecessary or even potentially harmful items.

CONSIDER OUR FOSTER PROGRAM
Hoping to find a friend for your current bun?
Our bunnies are rotated between the shelter and foster homes, so please let us know ahead of time if you are interested in a particular rabbit so we can make sure they will be at the shelter to meet you. Remember the saying that you can't judge a book by its cover? The same can be said for rabbits. They have a variety of different looks and personalities and even though you may have a certain look or size in mind, the most important part is seeing who you get along with the best.
AFTER ADOPTION: We are always available for questions or concerns you have regarding your new arrival. Within 2 weeks, you can expect a follow up email from an adoption counselor to get check in on how everyone’s doing. Adopting from GHRS automatically gives you a 1 year membership which entitles you to a 10% discount on store items and discounted boarding rates at our shelter when you travel. You will also receive emailed shelter updates, rabbit care information, stories of our foster bunnies, and invitations to our special events.
