My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

See below for this rabbit's description. To apply for this rabbit, go to www.larabbits.org and fill out an online application form: http://larabbits.org/adoption-application/ All our rabbits are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated for RHDV2 and litter box trained!
Little 3.8 lb Petra was abandoned and found running in the street near a freeway onramp at the beginning of June. Despite her rough start, she loves people and is friendly, calm, smart and funny, loves head scratches, chinning everything and exploring. Cilantro is her favorite food.

Fun fact: she is a magical color-changing bunny (markings get lighter in summer, darker in winter).

She also has several gold medals in flopping and lounging.

She has some teeth issues, likely from an improper diet before she was rescued, but the foster family's working on getting her teeth taken care of. So far, they have had her vaccinated for RHDV2, spayed and groomed (bottom shave – her bottom was stained and matted when we found her, like she had been kept somewhere small where she couldn’t get out of her own mess – it was very sad).

From her foster family:
She’s been gracefully dealing with cats, kids and chaos. She loves being petted. And she has good litter box habits. We hope she can find a special someone (and a somebun) who has a calmer home and a carpet for binkies!

Their adoption process

1.

Submit Application

https://larabbits.org/adoption-application/

2.

Interview

We match people with rabbits, rabbits with rabbits.

3.

Home Check

We call this a "home safety visit" because safety for rabbits can get complex---we want it to be safe but we are not intrusive.

4.

Meet the Pet

During the RHDV2 and COVID19 epidemic and pandemic, we are limiting contact with our rabbits to people who are seriously interested.

5.

Sign Adoption Contract

We have an adoption contract that acts as a safety net for the rabbit: if something happens to you, bunny comes back to us.

6.

Pay Fee

We have adoption fees ranging from $90-150 depending on our prior investment in the rabbit. Pairs are $150-250.

Additional adoption info

Our rabbit adoption fee includes the neuter, vaccination and micro chip (we do not adopt out unaltered rabbits under any circumstances). Rabbits must live in an indoor, cage-free environment. Exercise pens that are at least 4' x 4' with additional run time in a rabbit-proofed room are acceptable. Note: We do not adopt out of the Greater Los Angeles area unless the adopter has previously adopted from us.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

We are adopting out rabbits by appointment only. Location of meeting place will be provided after potential adopters and organization have agreed on meeting specific rabbits.

Our weekly mobile adoption venue is ON HOLD for now
due to COVID-19.

All rabbits will have to be vaccinated for RHDV2 to meet there in future.

More about this rescue

We are a Los-Angeles based rabbit welfare group that provides education on rabbit care, promotes spay/neuter of companion rabbits, and helps find homes for abandoned rabbits in Los Angeles County.

Our founder, Michelle Kelly, PhD, has helped establish successful adoption programs for rabbits in public animal shelters. She is also a licensed educator and Chapter Manager for House Rabbit Society.
