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.

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 »

Ginny
  • Polish, American, Mixed
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

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. But really under that tough exterior is a soft heart, yearning to be loved. We've found Ginny very amenable to cuddling once you've cracked her "defenses." View full description »

Lilith is a Netherland Dwarf so she is tiny, but she packs a lot of personality! She's not mean but she can be aloof, so might not be the best fit for small children. She is also a candidate for bonding if your rabbit is looking for a companion. View full description »

  • Satin
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Onyx is a little guy, less than 3 pounds. With his shiny black fur, we think he might be a "mini satin" or at least a very small Polish rabbit. Onyx likes to have lots of space to run around as he is very energetic. He's friendl, but not used to being cuddled. He was recently neutered and is finally developing better litter box habits, though not perfect yet. Onyx is adorable but a bit quirky so we're looking for a family that can appreciate his personality. View full description »
