About Our Rescue Group...
The Bunny Bunch was established in 1984 by Caroline Charland to help rabbits in need. We are a non profit, no kill rescue and education organization run entirely by volunteers. Over the years we have rescued thousands of rabbits, mostly from high kill shelters.
Most of the rabbits we rescue come from city and county shelters. These rabbits would have otherwise been euthanized. Unfortunately rabbits are taken to these shelters everyday, mostly because people have bought them from a pet shop, breeder or swap meet without learning about their care or knowing what to expect. They are often bought for young children who cannot care
for them. They are left in cages, hutches or outside with no protection from predators.
It is our goal to place Bunny Bunch rabbits into loving homes where they will spend the rest of their life in a happy, healthy, environment. We do this by helping people make the right choice about adopting a rabbit, by educating them about rabbits and their care, and what to expect when you have a rabbit living in your home as part of the family. We also stay up to date with the latest in health care for rabbits and work with many veterinarians across the United States and even in other countries.
In December 2007 we opened our first adoption and education center in Montclair, California called the Burrow. The Burrow is a safe haven for rabbits to live until they find their forever home. We always have lots of rabbits, chinchillas and guinea pigs waiting for homes.
We have a classroom where we hold seminars and workshops for the public, teaching them all about rabbit care. We also offer programs to teach shelters, vet techs and even veterinarians about rabbit care and health.
Our store Bunny Bunch Boutique is packed full of healthy goodies for rabbits, chinchillas and guinea pigs. We ship our products all over the United States and also offer a wholesale line.
Bunny sitting, bonding and grooming are also offered as one of our services at the Burrow.
The Hop Café is a place you can come and relax with your rabbit if you please. We show rabbit movies, have lots of nice snacks and rabbit books for you to read as well as rabbit lovers to chat with.
We do have a spay and neuter program here at the Burrow for the animals we rescue. At times we are able to offer low cost spay and neuter to the public.
We hope that one day because of our work and the work of others that rabbits won’t be sold at swap meets, feed stores, pet shops and street corners. And that they won’t be used for testing products or used in experiments or bred for food. We hope that they will be recognized as the wonderfully delightful creature they really are.
Our entire organization runs on donations, grants and profits from our store.
Our Adoption Process...
The Bunny Bunch has hundreds of rabbits just waiting for a home of their own. To meet our rabbits just come to the Burrow during our open hours, no appointment is necessary. Also check our Events page on our website for off-site adoption events in other areas.
Our rabbits are spayed or neutered and litterbox trained. Our adoption fee is $85.00 for a single rabbit or $125.00 for a bonded pair. The adoption fee covers the cost of the spay or neuter which normally costs well over $150.00 per rabbit. Your donation is tax deductible. Adoption applications can be filled out at the Burrow, at our off site adoption events or online. Online applications can be found on The Bunny Bunch website at www.bunnybunch.org and click on "Adopt A Rabbit"
