FAQs

Q?I have a rabbit I can no longer keep; will you take him/her?
A.

We rescue rabbits from the Sacramento County Animal Shelter that are in danger of being euthanized. Our foster care space is filled with rabbits we have rescued from the shelter. Unfortunately we do not have room to take in rabbits from the public. What we can do is help you find a home for your rabbit. Email us a few pictures of your rabbit along with a description of his/her personality and we will post him/her to our website. If someone calls with interest in your rabbit we will screen them and then contact you. For facilitating the adoption, we require that the adoption fee be paid to us. We require that you get your rabbit spay/neutered. If cost is an issue then we will make arrangements to have your rabbit altered by one of our contracted Vets. We will pass on our discounted cost to you which you will be required to donate to TEAM-FUR.

Q?I’d like to adopt a rabbit for my child; how do I go about finding the right rabbit?
A.

We discourage rabbits as pets for young children. Children tend to want to hold and cuddle animals and rabbits do not like to be held. They have delicate skeletal systems and can easily break a bone. We recommend that you get your young child a stuffed toy instead of a live pet rabbit. Rabbits live on average between 10 and 12 years. Adopting a rabbit is a commitment. Children, not always, but normally loose interest in animals. If you as the parent want a rabbit as a pet then we encourage adoption. If you’re adopting a rabbit just for your child then we discourage adoption.

Q?I bought a rabbit for my child but now she won’t take care of it, will you take it?
A.

We encourage teaching children responsible pet ownership and compassion for animals. If you as the parent are not prepared to care or want a rabbit as a pet then we recommend that you not buy a rabbit for your child.

Q?Can I adopt a rabbit as a gift for someone?
A.

No, we do not adopt rabbits as gifts. We require that the person that wants the rabbit attend our adoption events so that we can help match them up with the right rabbit and so that we can be assured that they are prepared to care for a rabbit.

Q?My rabbit is sick or injured what should I do?
A.

Call a Certified Exotic Vet right away. If your rabbit is not eating, drinking, peeing, pooping or is lethargic, it is an emergency. The rabbit has to be seen right away. Click here for a list of Certified Exotic Vets.

Q?My rabbit is sick but I can’t afford Veterinary care; can you help me with medical expenses?
A.

Unfortunately we do not have funding to help the public pay for Veterinary bills. You can contact the Sacramento House Rabbit Society for help at www.allearssac.org.
