I am already spayed, litterbox trained, and purebred. I am shy and sweet. I am working on trusting people because I was once just a hutch rabbit intended for food.

My Story:
My previous owner purchased a bunch of rabbits and raised them for meat. He had his freezers full and let 30 plus domestic rabbits loose in his yard. The neighbors complained and our rescue was notified. We went out and trapped some rabbits and spayed and neutered them. Others are in still in temporary foster and some have been relocated to other rescue groups.


About New Hanover County Rabbit Rescue of Wilmington

About Our Rescue Group...

Founder of rescue is employed at animal shelter and rescues rabbits from being adopted by people looking to exploit them as food, breeding, being fed to reptiles, and used for training hunting dogs. All rabbits are placed into temporary foster homes and spayed and neutered prior to adoption. Once they are spayed and neutered they are transported from foster homes to adoption fairs at PetCo on 324 S College Road, Wilmington NC and are publicly shown until they find forever homes. These rabbits are given a second chance to a new family. Please don't buy from a breeder. Adopt a rescued rabbit!
