Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Rabbit Advocates is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose volunteers specialize in educating the public about the care of domestic rabbits. We aim to place surrendered or abandoned rabbits in loving homes where they will be welcomed as family members. Formerly a part of the Oregon Humane Society, in 2002 we created a group solely devoted to promoting the welfare of domestic rabbits. The Rabbit Advocates operate an education and adoption website as well as a help line. We hold rabbit adoption outreach events and other activities at locations around the Portland Metro Area and hold monthly meetings at Oregon Humane Society, located at 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, Oregon.

About Our Rescue Group:

We believe that domestic rabbits should be treated as companion animals, which means meeting both their physical and social needs. Our goal is to place rabbits in loving homes where they will be welcomed as family members and where they will receive ongoing social contact, plenty of space to play and exercise, proper food, proper shelter - preferably indoors - and medical care as needed. To accomplish this, education of the public and ongoing education of our group are our highest priorities.

We recognize that rabbit overpopulation is a serious problem and our volunteers do not breed rabbits or other companion animals. We promote adoptions of homeless rabbits from foster homes, shelters and rescue groups.

Why should you adopt?

rabbits can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a rabbit for sale or finding a rabbit breeder, adopting a rabbit from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a rabbit to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a rabbit. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your rabbit needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a rabbit. There are different types of rabbits including American; American Fuzzy Lop; American Sable; Angora, English; Angora, French; Angora, Giant; Angora, Satin; Belgian Hare; Beveren; Blanc de Hotot; Britannia Petite; Californian; Champagne D'Argent; Checkered Giant; Chinchilla, American; Chinchilla, Giant; Chinchilla, Standard; Cinnamon; Creme D'Argent; Dutch; Dwarf; Dwarf Hotot; English Spot; Flemish Giant; Florida White; Harlequin; Havana; Himalayan; Jersey Wooly; Lilac; Lionhead; Lop, English; Lop, French; Lop, Holland; Lop-Eared; Mini Lop; Mini Rex; Mini Satin; Netherland Dwarf; New Zealand; Palomino; Polish; Rex; Rhinelander; Satin; Silver; Silver Fox; Silver Marten; Tan; and Thrianta.
