How and Why we Began

There are limited to no Bunny Rescues or Resources

within a 340-mile radius of Fresno County.

Our Mission Statement

Help pets in need through sheltering, adoption, education, spay/neuter, and community outreach.

 

Our Story

Virginia and Bethany have been friends for years, bonding over rescue bunnies. They were both known in their areas as the “Bunny Ladies”. People would come to them with questions and needing guidance.

When Bethany and Virginia met they were both volunteering for rescues out of town and transporting bunnies out of Fresno County to the most local rescue (closest being 3hrs away).

Being bunny lovers and rescue volunteers they began to realize that there were many problems in the rabbit rescue world. With overpopulation, rabbits being abandoned or dumped, lack of knowledge of rabbit care. It was at this point that they teamed up and made the decision to answer the call.

 

Within the first month, they had over 30 surrender requests some being rabbits found in the streets, or being dumped.

By day 60 they had over 80.

As of December 2021 they have saved over 91 rabbits and have had over 60 adoptions. However, they still have a long waitlist for intake and more at shelters waiting to be pulled.

With a maximum of 20 adoptable rabbits (between foster homes, and 2 locations), they like to keep their rescue small as they want to ensure they get to personally know each rabbit and ensure they are spoiled before going to their forever homes.

 

The Bunny Trail has been a source of education for local bunny parents. They try to help answer all questions that bunny parents may have from “What foods should they not eat” to “My bunny isn’t eating or drinking, what should we do”.

 

Our main goal is to bring awareness to domestic rabbits. How great and amazing of pets they can be.
