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.

Rabbits are wonderful pets who are worthy of respect. We strive to find good homes with adopters who understand the commitment and will love the rabbit as a family member. We don’t intend to cover costs with adoption fees; we do a lot of fundraising and apply for grants. We are all volunteers — no paid staff. All rabbits adopted from Eastern Shore Rabbit Rescue are spayed/neutered, in good health, litter box trained, and socialized. Starting in October 2021, we also vaccinate all rabbits for RHDV-2. We educate first time bunny adopters (habitat, proper diet, safe handling, etc.).

As of January 2023, all of ESRREC’s rabbits are being fostered. The shelter on Main Street in Rock Hall has closed.  Adoptable rabbits are available for meetings depending on the foster family’s schedule. We will hold meet-and-greets at pet stores in the region, as well as our Outreach Building in Rock Hall Village. Please contact us at adopt@esrrec.org to make an appointment.

NOTE: Thank you to the House Rabbit Society for letting us utilize their forms!

Below are the listings of ESRREC’s adoptable rabbits from Petfinder. (note: we try to maintain our Petfinder listings, but because we are a volunteer organization, there is a lag time.)  Some of our rabbits also have videos courtesy of WMDT’s “Pets on the Plaza.”

A very special bonded pair available for adoption: Ben and Denny! These two were singles from the large Queen Anne's County Animal Services intake last summer. But in early December, Denny developed head tilt. Medical treatment did not reverse it. He's doing well but he needed a friend "to lean on - so Ben is filling this role perfectly. Both are Angora mixes with extra grooming needs. But we believe there is a family out there who can give them a loving home. The adoption fee is waived as long as we are satisfied that these two will get the best care! View full description »
