Application Process is below
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!
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, spay/neuter surgery, ex-pen (enclosure), carrier, litter box, food and water bowls, pellets, hay, treats and toys. A detailed list of these items and costs is below under the "New Rabbit Checklist." If you have already purchased supplies, please email photos to so that we may review and address any items that may be unsafe. Unfortunately, many products that are marketed as "rabbit" supplies at pet stores are harmful to a rabbit! We are here to help guide you away from those products.
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.
Thank you again for wanting to be an adoptive home for rescued rabbits! We look forward to speaking with you!
