In May 2023, Eastern Shore Rabbit Rescue and Education Center (ESRREC) will launch a pilot program to help our community get affordable spay or neuter for their pet rabbits. This service is ONLY being offered to rabbit owners on the eastern shore of Maryland and lower Delaware. There are two components:
- Transportation: An ESRREC volunteer will transport the client’s rabbit(s) to Animal Birth Control clinic in Millersville, MD. The nonrefundable fee for this transport is $30 per rabbit. The clinic will conduct the spay or neuter surgery for $190, to be paid directly to the clinic by the owner on the day of the surgery.
- Optional Financial Assistance: If financial help is requested to partially fund the surgery, ESRREC will review your request. If approved, ESRREC will cover approved costs through its Spay/Neuter Assistance Fund.
Please fill out the form below and an ESRREC volunteer will follow up with you regarding the details of the transport and how to pay for the transport fee.
Why spay or neuter your rabbit? A hysterectomy eliminates the possibility of uterine cancer, which is common in older female rabbits. The spay or neuter operation also reduces negative behavioral traits associated with hormones such as irritability, urine spraying, and aggressiveness.
