TAHITI's Story...
TAHITI (ID #A026721) is a neutered male red-and-white dutch rabbit. He was about 6 months old when he arrived at the shelter in June of 2013. He came to the shelter with a severe malocclusion so he couldn't eat. He was so thin, you could feel his ribs. Because his malocclusion was so severe, his front teeth were removed. He can now eat with great gusto and has been filling out nicely. He loves veggies and pumpkin, orchard grass and alfalfa hay, but is not too crazy about pellets. He was very nervous around people when he first came to the shelter, but he's slowly coming out of his shell now that he knows humans are not all out to get him.Tahiti is currently in foster care due to his special diet, so if you're interested in meeting him, please email us at or call 949-595-8899 to arrange an interaction.

Please review this very informative rabbit intro video before you adopt:

You need to be 18 years or older, complete an application, and be interviewed. It is strongly recommended that all members of your household interact with the rabbit to make the best match for everyone, and that the rabbit you wish to adopt will be an indoor pet. You must be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. We reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.

Applications are only accepted by FAX (949-366-4765), mail or in person. Sorry, no applications through the Internet. The adoption fee for rabbits is $45, which covers the following: spay/neuter, microchip, litter-box training, copy of The House Rabbit Handbook, "New Owner" folder, bag of Timothy hay and pellets, and one free basic health examination within 5 days of adoption from a veterinarian on our list.

Rabbits make excellent pets. They are intelligent, social animals capable of forming lifelong bonds with their human companions. Their playful antics will warm your heart for years to come. A well-cared-for house rabbit can have a lifespan of seven to ten years or longer.

Please call 949-595-8899 to check if your desired pet is still available or the status of your application. Shelter Hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, & Saturday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Wednesday: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM. Sunday: Noon - 3:00 PM. We are CLOSED Mondays. We are very proud of our shelter, it is clean, welcoming, freeway close, and was voted "Best Place to Adopt" by the Orange Coast Magazine!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TAHITI, a San Clemente Dutch was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dutch for sale in San Clemente, or seeking a Dutch from a breeder in San Clemente.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Clemente already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Clemente breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dutch breeders who help with Dutch rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Clemente paves the way for another one to be saved.
