Application Process is below

First, a message from our Shelter Manager

THANK YOU for your interest in adopting rescued rabbits! There are a few important things we want to make you aware of before beginning the adoption application process. Please read through these items before you move on to fill out the Adoption Application below!

  • We currently do not adopt out of state. Please visit this website to search for a rescue in your state.

  • All GHRS rabbits must be housed (and exercised) in a climate-controlled area of your home.

  • Housing a rabbit in a bedroom is not encouraged since they have different sleep cycles than humans. They need to be in a central area of the home so they will feel like part of the family.

  • Rabbits have individual personalities, so we encourage you not to decide based solely on appearance. 

  • The initial investment for adopting one of our spayed/neutered rabbits is generally $250-$300. This includes the adoption fee, ex-pen (enclosure), carrier, litter box, food/water bowls, pellets, hay, treats and toys to last the first three months. 

  • The rabbit’s pen (bedroom) needs to be at least 16 square feet and a minimum of 30” in height but 36” is our recommended height. 

  • We want the best lives for our rescued rabbits. If at any time you are unable to care for them or no longer want them, they MUST be returned to us. We always accept our rabbits back into our shelter and do NOT allow anyone else to rehome them.

  • Providing inaccurate information about the ownership of your home will result in a delay or denial of your application. We encourage those who rent to adopt! However, we will verify that your lease allows rabbits prior to setting up an appointment.

Thank you again for wanting to be an adoptive home for rescued rabbits! We look forward to speaking with you!

Read Bunny 101

Anyone interested in adopting our rescued rabbits will need to read our Bunny 101: Basics of Rabbit Care. It outlines the type of care we expect for our rabbits in their new homes. On the day you're scheduled to come to the shelter, you will take a Bunny Knowledge Quiz based on this info so be sure to read it thoroughly! Find the handout HERE!

Items You Need

Next, look through the “New Rabbit Checklist” so you can be aware of the items that you will need. We have everything you need for your new rabbit available in our “Hop Shop” at the shelter, and as an adopter you will receive a year of GHRS membership which gives you 10% off your store purchases AND discounted boarding rates! All profit goes directly to the care of the rabbits at GHRS. Find the checklist HERE!

GHRS Adoption Process

Gather Your Info

Gather this info to send in when you make your appointment:

  • Renting?  If you rent your home, please obtain proof of your landlord or leasing agency approval specifically stating you are allowed to have a rabbit in your home and that it does not have to be caged at all times (the rabbit will have exercise time outside of the pen in your home).

  • Supplies? If you have already purchased supplies, please take photos of them. We have all of the supplies you will need at our shelter.

  • Location? Please take photos of the location in your home where the rabbit will be housed and exercised (doesn't need to be set up yet, we just need a visual of the space). If you already have a rabbit in your home, please take a photo of the current rabbit's areas.

  • Bonding? Gather proof of your current rabbit's spay/neuter AND current RHDV-2 Vaccination.

READY? Click HERE to set up an appointment if you have completed steps 1-4 above!
