Prospective adopters, please fill out the on-line adoption-application in advance. We'll then get back to you with more details. Please also read the pros and cons of adopting a second rabbit below:
Adopting a Second Bunny
Rabbits are social animals and almost always love having a member of their own species to snuggle and groom. For this reason, many rabbit organizations will not adopt out a rabbit to live alone.
Pros and cons of adopting a second rabbit:
- Your first bunny will be infinitely more happy, once the bunnies are bonded.
- Rabbits live longer, on average, when they have a bunny friend.
- You can save another bunny's life!
- You don’t have to feel guilty about leaving your rabbit all alone when you’re at work.
- There is nothing more endearing than rabbits snuggling together.
- The bonding stage can be slow and scary. It might cost $$ if you seek bonding help from the professionals. Tip: If you ever go out of town and have to board your bunny anyway, it makes sense to have your rabbit bonded with another during that time.
- You have to factor in veterinary care for a second rabbit.
Unless you have extensive experience bonding rabbits already, it’s important to have support and advice from a reputable rabbit welfare group. Please contact us for information on taking your rabbit on “dates” with potential partners, before you adopt a second rabbit and find out that they are intent on killing one another. Rabbits have preferences when it comes to their loved ones, just like we do.
You will also want to consult with volunteers to find out which rabbits have easygoing personalities and which insist on being Top Bunny.
Bonding rabbits can be tricky, but once it’s done, you’ll know it was the right thing to do.
