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.).

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.”

  • Lionhead
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Vaccinations up to date

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.

Herby was a bit of a lonely guy before he made a match with Bunncye. She's got the bigger personality and he follows her lead, but he's got just as much of a spine as she does. He loves dried apple slices and is patient with short grooming sessions, which are necessary for Lionheads. He'll let you know when he's done! Bonded with Bunncye View full description »
