Hi! I'm Sweet Pea, one of the HFR foster bunnies! I'm here to let you know about our adoption policies. You may think some of them are silly, but please bear in mind that all of our bunnies have been through at least one previous home (some have been through three or four!), most were surrendered to the local shelter or were found as strays, and a few have been taken from situations where they were abused. Our group has spent lots of time, money, energy and love taking care of them, and we want to make sure they go to the best homes that we can find for them.
In addition, many people don't realize how complicated and expensive rabbits are. They are not an easy pet, or a good "starter pet" for children! Please do lots and lots of research before you make the final decision to adopt. You can find links to more info on our rabbit care page.
If you don't understand why we have these policies, just ask and we'll be happy to explain! So...here goes:
If you are over 25 and have the time, energy, financial resources and, most of all, love to care for a rabbit (not to mention lots of willow toys and a good sense of humor!) we would be happy to talk with you about adopting one of our fabulous foster bunnies!
Please fill out our adoption application and include your name, phone number and some information
about why you would like a bunny, if you've had a bunny before, and any other information you think would be pertinent.
Please note that our adoption process includes a phone conversation and a home visit (because we are frequently contacted by animal hoarders and other unsavory people and because we want to make sure you are properly bunny proofed!). We reserve the right to decline any adoption application.
Think you would be a good adopter? Then let's look at some adoptable bunnies!
