How and Why we Began

There is a limited supply of Domestic Bunny Rescues and Resources.

Our Mission Statement

Helping domestic rabbits in need through sheltering, adoption, education, spay/neuter, and community outreach.

 

Our Story

With a history in animal rescue, we began to realize that there were many problems in the domestic rabbit rescue world. With overpopulation, rabbits being abandoned or dumped, lack of knowledge of rabbit care, and limited rescues specializing in their care, rehab, and adoption. We decided to answer the call and immediately felt the need.

 

Within the first month, they had over 30 surrender requests some being rabbits found in the streets, or being dumped. After one year we had saved over 120 rabbits and had over 100 adoptions.

However, we still have a long waitlist for intake and more at shelters waiting to be pulled.

We keep a maximum of 25 adoptable rabbits (between foster homes, and our adoption center), as we like to keep our rescue small so we can ensure we get to personally know each rabbit so they are spoiled and receive special care before going to their forever homes. With many of our rabbits needing some time after intake for a proper diet, retrust in humans, and socialization, we want to ensure they receive the slow transition so they become the best bunnies for their family. 

As we celebrate our accomplishments, we also want to celebrate what a gift it is to have such a supportive and generous community that supports this journey.  Our rescue focuses on the unwanted, abandoned, mistreated, and abused domestic rabbits, we want to show them the life they deserve. As a 501c Rescue, The Bunny Trail Rescue is solely donation-based. Therefore, we must rely on fundraising and help from the community to achieve our budgetary goals.
