Where are you located?
We are a foster-based organization, meaning we have no physical shelter space. Our foster homes are primarily in Central and Eastern Iowa, but we serve the entire state as best we can. You can find out where each rabbit is located on their petfinder profile. If you find a rabbit on the other side of the state, it is likely we can transport them a bit closer to you.
How much is it to adopt?
Our adoption fee is typically $50 for a single rabbit, $75 for a bonded pair, however there may be exceptions.
I don't want or cant keep my rabbit anymore, what do i do?
If you adopted the rabbit from us, it needs to return to us as stated in the adoption contract. All other rabbit surrender requests must be made through our online form. We always have a long surrender waitlist, so please expect to keep your rabbit for 3 months or so until a spot in a foster home opens up for them. All rabbits are placed in order their request was received. If you are unable to keep your rabbit that long, please contact your local animal shelter, or reach out to us and we would be happy to connect you to a trusted shelter in your area.
My rabbit isn't friendly, is there anyway to change that?
First, we always recommend spaying or neutering your rabbit. This removes any hormonal behavior and sets the rabbit up for success. Second, work to determine the root of the negative behavior. Is your rabbit protective of their cage? Try giving them more space to move. We recommend at least 16sqft of space. It may be that your rabbit is fearful of you. Patience and getting down to their level will help a lot with this. Laying on the floor next to them, talking, and offering food will all help you work towards a positive relationship with them.

Where do you get your rabbits from?
We accept rabbits as surrenders, but we also work with other rescue groups and shelters, as well as pick up stray or loose rabbits.
Are your rabbits spayed or neutered before adoption?
Yes, every rabbit will be spayed or neutered before adoption. They are also treated for any medical issues they may have.
Where is your building?
We do not have a physical shelter space. We utilize foster homes to provide the best one on one care for each rabbit. This allows us to understand the rabbit's personality and behavior to find them the best home.
