Ellie and Patrick are sweet, older bunnies who are both content to spend most of their days lounging and cuddling together. They do occasionally do binkies, but afterwards, they always have to take a small break and rest. This easygoing senior pair feels comfortable observing humans and they seem perfectly content to sit with a gentle human or relax nearby while you read or watch T.V. You'll rarely see the two apart. They prefer to lounge together, but every once in a while, Ellie likes to quietly check out the situation or ask for pets (for both, because they have a strong sense of fairness). She responds well to humans who sit on the floor with her and wait for her to approach. Patrick tends to hang back until his curiosity gets the better of him. When he feels comfortable, Patrick enjoys gentle pets on his head and being a nosey housemate. Both bunnies are very friendly and love people! They will both hop up together to ask for pets (and treats!) and really enjoy having people as company.

Medical History: Because Patrick is over 5 years old, vets recommend annual bloodwork in addition to annual vaccinations.

Neutered, date unknown

Note: Patrick & Ellie are bonded and must be adopted together

Minimum housing requirement - double pen or free roam

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) is a highly contagious and deadly disease caused by a calicivirus that affects both wild and domestic rabbits. It is not contagious to people or other animals. For the first time, the virus is causing deaths in rabbits and hares native to North America and is spreading rapidly. UPDATE: In May 2021, California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has confirmed new cases of RHDV in rabbits in Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura County. In addition to detection of RHDV2 in wild cottontail rabbits and jackrabbits, RHDV2 has been confirmed in domestic rabbits on 50 premises, including a detection in a feral domestic rabbit.

More about this rescue

We are a volunteer-driven organization working in San Diego County for nearly 25 years. We want to ensure that rabbits are not adopted out unaltered, that they find good homes where they will be cherished as indoor family companions, and that we educate our community on the responsible care of indoor rabbit companions.
