Adopt A Bunny

If you have thought about bringing a Bunny into your family there are several wonderful organizations where you can adopt a bunny from.  A large number of these organizations will also provide you with education so that you are not flying blind on taking care of your bunny properly.

The following is a directory of Rabbit Rescues and Organizations that we are aware of.   If your organization is not listed please contact us and let us know your information so we can add you.

Biographical Info

The House Rabbit Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization with two primary goals: 1) to rescue rabbits and 2) to educate the public.

The Southeastern PA-DE Chapter of the House Rabbit Society is located in Newport, Delaware. Shelter hours are Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please call (302) 683-9009 for more information about any of the shelter’s rabbits, for directions, to arrange a visit or for an adoption appointment. Free rabbit care information is also available, or see the national HRS home page at for information about rabbit care in general.

We have a waiting list for owner-surrendered rabbits unless they were originally adopted from the Southeastern PA-DE HRS shelter. Rabbits from SPCAs, Humane Societies and other rescues take priority. Please work with your local humane agency.
