Please honor your pet throughout their lifetime. Do not adopt a pet if you consider them disposable.

HOW TO ADOPT
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.
Our rabbits are family pets only. Not for breeding, culling, bait, etc.
We adopt our bunnies into INDOOR HOMES ONLY. Supervised outdoor playtime is fine if your bunny enjoys it.
No hutches or small cages. Bunnies need room to stretch out, explore, and entertain you with their aerobatic binky-ing skills. We can provide info on how to create the perfect rabbit set up. The correct setup is surprisingly inexpensive, costing less than hutches and cages.
The primary caregiver MUST be a responsible adult.
With proper care, house rabbits can live 7-10 years. We expect adopters to make that lifelong commitment to their rabbit(s).
Adoption fees for spayed/neutered rabbits can vary based on a rabbit's individual situation.
For an unaltered rabbit, we require a deposit of half the cost of their future spay or neuter, which we will then apply to your vet bill the day of your surgery. Our adoption contract requires the bun be spayed/neutered within six months. This is for their health and your peace of mind. Many inexperienced owners dump, abandon, or neglect their rabbits because of hormone-driven behaviors that resolve with a simple spay or neuter.
Should you not be able to keep your rabbit, we require that the bunny be returned to MCRRR. No rehoming or giving your rabbit away is allowed without our consent and screening process.
We go over the requirements and your rabbit experience, ask for pictures of your set up so that we can help redirect anything that isn't workable, do a meet and greet with you and the rabbit (and with any potential rabbit partner, who will need to have proof of spay/neuter if ours is not yet altered), and go over any rabbit care questions you may have. Because of Covid, we're not able to do home visits. Meet and greets are outdoors.
