Rescue organizations rely on the generosity of those who love animals as much as we do. All funds raised go directly to the bunnies, specifically medical bills, spay and neuter costs, housing supplies for foster homes, food, toys, and treats, and transport for bunnies across Oregon. Donate via PayPal, check out our Amazon wish list, or contact us about local donations such as bales of hay.
FOSTER A BUNNY
Our rescue relies on the kindness of people who are willing to open their homes and hearts to a bunny in need. All supplies and information are provided. Some bunnies need a comfortable place to heal from surgery, some are experiencing what it's like to be a loved house bunny for the first time, and others need socialization to learn that humans can be amazing friends.
ADOPT A BUNNY
Rabbits are fascinating creatures who deserve forever homes where they're safe and loved. Many come to us from horrible situations, some have been bounced around from auction to auction, and others have been dumped by people who have decided they (or their children) are bored. We strive to find them the stable indoor homes they've been denied.
Established in 2010, MC's Rabbit Rescue and Rehabilitation is a not-for-profit rabbit rescue and rehabilitation center serving Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Rabbits are fascinating, intelligent creatures that are often misunderstood. Information about proper care and temperament varies depending on what a person reads or to whom they speak, leaving potential rabbit owners feeling lost. Most bunnies don't make it to their first birthday because of improper care or living conditions, diet, and overbreeding. Many are dumped by people who've gotten "bored" of the pet that turned out to be far more complex than the breeder or pet store led them to believe. Domestic rabbits cannot survive in the wild, so releasing them is a death sentence. The rabbits we care for often come to us injured, severely neglected, or ill, and in need of expensive medical procedures.
MCRRR strives to raise awareness about the issue of rabbit overpopulation, educate potential rabbit owners about proper care, and rescue, rehabilitate, and place disadvantaged bunnies in new forever homes.
Wellness services are also available. See our Services page for a detailed list.
⚠️ RHDV-2 ALERT ⚠️
Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus 2 (RHDV-2) is a viral disease that causes sudden death in rabbits. The Oregon Department of Agriculture has confirmed RHDV-2 in multiple locations throughout the state.
RHDV-2 is a highly pathogenic and contagious upper respiratory disease that can affect all rabbits, domestic or wild, and closely related species. It does not infect other animals or people, and is not related to the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19. This disease has caused extensive mortalities in wild cottontail and jackrabbit populations in affected areas.
RHDV-2 is persistent in the environment and can remain infectious on the surfaces of objects, on clothing, and in tissues for a significant amount of time. It may be spread between rabbits by inhalation, contact with contaminated equipment, contact with flies and other insects, contact with urine or feces from infected rabbits, and contact with feces from predators that have eaten infected rabbits. There is no specific treatment and the disease is often fatal in rabbits.
A vaccine is now available in Oregon. Contact your local vet or rescue organization for information on where your rabbits can be vaccinated.
