Looking to Adopt?
Before adopting a rabbit, it is important that you discuss the long-time commitment of adopting with your family or roommates, as rabbits can live up to 10 to 12 years.
Discuss who in your home will be a caregiver to your long-residing companion. As the caregiver, your job will be to make sure your adoptee rabbit is fed, cleaned after, provided with medical care, and making sure they get enough social interaction, physical exercise, and mental stimulation.
If you are renting, it is vital to make sure you have permission from your landlord before adopting.
Before adopting, you must be aware that rabbits exhibit behaviors such as digging and chewing! Rabbits dig and chew just as dogs bark; it is just something that many rabbits instinctually do. Providing toys and "bunny-proofing" your house will help deter any damage from happening.
Are you prepared to spend time with your adoptee? Your rabbit adoptee will need social interactions from their humans. Without human interaction, rabbits can get bored, even to the point of becoming lonely and depressed.
Will you or the primary caregiver know when your new adopted rabbit is not feeling well? Like any animal, they can get sick, injured, and distressed. Will you know the signs? Will you be prepared for a vet bill if it arises? (More information on signs of illness in our Rabbit Care section of this website.)
It is essential for rabbits to have hay in their diet as it is 80-85% of what they eat. Do you know if you or anyone else in your home is allergic?
Is there any circumstances that would make you give up your commitment to your rabbit? If so, would fostering be a better choice for you?
What do adopted bunnies come with?
This depends on what you already have! We have a variety of adoption packages, based on your current level of needs:
Adoption Package #1 - "I need everything!"
This package includes it all: X-pen, giant bag of hay, food pellets, food/water bowls, litter box, litter pellets, and any other personal belongings your adoptee may have. Please note that AARR has had the bunnies fully vetted and spayed/neutered. Adoption fees for this package are $150.00 for a solo bunny and $200.00 for a bonded pair.
Adoption Package #2 - "I have an x-pen..."
This package is great if you already have an X-pen on hand OR your rabbit will be treated to a dedicated room! This package includes a giant bag of hay, food pellets, food/water bowls, litter box, litter pellets, and any other personal belongings your adoptee may have. Please note that AARR has had the bunnies fully vetted and spayed/neutered. Adoption fees for this package are $100.00 for a solo bunny and $150.00 for a bonded pair.
Adoption Package #3 - "Just the rabbit..."
A starter pack isn't necessary if you already have the necessities that your new companion(s) will be needing! Bunnies who do not need a starter pack can be adopted for $75.00 for a solo bunny and $100.00 for a bonded pair. Please note that AARR has had the bunnies fully vetted and spayed/neutered.
