How Do I Meet Adoptable Rabbits?


Thank you for considering adoption! There are several rescue groups and shelters with rabbits available for adoption in our area. You can often visit the rabbits at shelters during their normal operating hours. On busy weekend days, you may want to make an appointment. Rescue groups, including Triangle Rabbits, are often comprised of a network of foster homes. You can visit these bunnies by appointment, or at a local adoption event. Please remember that most rescues are run entirely by volunteers, who also have families and jobs, and so it may be a few days before a meet and greet appointment can be scheduled.
