Adopting a Rabbit – The Process
Rabbits are social little animals, and so need to be homed in pairs or groups. We therefore don’t allow adoption of a single rabbit unless you have another one at home to bond it with (pair it with).
We can bond one of our rabbits with your existing rabbit but your rabbit must have been vaccinated against Myxomatosis/RHD1 and the new fatal rabbit disease RHD2 before we can do that. It must also be neutered. We also have pairs of rabbits that are already bonded and ready for homing.
You can view all the rabbits that are in need of a new home here on our website.
Once you make contact with us, we’ll give you the details of the foster home so you can arrange to meet the rabbit(s) and make any bonding arrangements if necessary. Please check your spam box incase our email has gone into there! And bear with us as we’re all volunteers and work for ARC in our spare time. It may take a couple of days to get back to you.
We’ll then complete a home visit and help you in making sure you have everything you need for your new family members
To go ahead with the adoption, you will need to complete and sign our adoption form and leave the minimum donation for your new companion(s) with the fosterer. Please see minimum donations.
Finally please don’t forget to come back and leave us a message on our Testimonials page once your new pet has settled in!
