Adopt

Rabbits are the third most popular companion animal. They can be litter box trained and stay indoors with the family like a dog or cat.

ESRREC adoptable rabbits will be listed here and on Petfinder.  We require an adoption fee to help defray the costs of sheltering and neutering/spaying the rabbits. Please email your application or any questions to adopt@esrrec.org.

FAQs (please read this first!)

Charger and Juju
Charger and JujuCharger and Juju
  • Lionhead
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Charger is bonded with his sister Juju and they must be adopted together. They are both on an all-hay diet due to digestive issues. The best habitat for these two is a 4x4 exercise pen. Charger and Juju have exhibited belligerent behavior (grunting and charging) so they need an experienced owner. However they also have their softer side and quirky personalities. Juju had her incisors removed because of malocculusion. She has no trouble eating hay but to keep her weight up, we are supplementing her diet with a mixture of V8 and critical care every evening.

Clover
Clover
  • Lionhead, English Spot, Mixed
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Clover is a 3 year old Lionhead mix who has flourished in foster care. Though shy and sometimes skittish, she's an inquisitive, affectionate rabbit whose favorite play activities include digging mats and burrowing in hay or blankets. She likes having her cheeks rubbed and her hair braided, and is more than happy to settle into a lap for a nice long snuggle session. She also likes to have her space "just so" and may rearrange her play area for you a few times until you get it right. Clover has a tendency to be cage territorial. She must go to a home where she can have a large pen or be free-roam. Clover got a little too adventurous and injured herself at her foster's house in July 2019. She had an operation on her hip in August 2019 and has almost completely recovered. View full description »

Coal and Elsa
Coal and ElsaCoal and ElsaCoal and ElsaCoal and Elsa
  • Lionhead
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Coal, a black Lionhead, was brought to us in June 2016. His soul mate Elsa arrived in April 2017. Later that year, we bonded them ourselves. They make a lovely couple and both like to snuggle with humans. But they also sometimes bicker with each other. An experienced rabbit owner is probably best for Coal & Elsa. They must be adopted together. We have found that when they are in a large top-loading cage with regular playpen time, they behave pretty well and are easy to handle. They are on an all-hay diet, so any adopters should be prepared to buy a lot of hay, perhaps from a local farm. Put a lot of hay in their litter box and in a feeder. They will happily eat all of it!

Ginny was in a litter born at the shelter in 2017. She had a rough start when her spay incision got infected. She has been such a grouch that we held her back for socialization.

Hannah is a big girl (8-9 lbs) who needs space. But even more important she needs love. She was found as a stray; she is very demanding of attention, wanting her nose pet whenever you are near.
