We remind everyone that rabbits are life-long companions deserving of as much care, consideration, and attention as a cat or a dog.
Please take a some time to think about the consequences of your purchase.
We provide Adoption, Behavior, Care, and Educational information about your companion rabbit.
The House Rabbit Society is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and finding loving homes for abandoned and unwanted rabbits. HRS is committed to educating people about the unique nature and proper care of these wonderful, intelligent companion animals. Find out more about the Sacramento House Rabbit Society.
HRS is 100% volunteer operated and all of our funds go to helping rabbits and educating people about how wonderful they are as house pets. Below is a chart of our expenditures for 2015 (rounding gives an amount greater than 100%). Your generous, tax-deductable gift to our 501-3(c) will go a long way to saving rabbits in our area.

Journalism students! Writers! Editors! Contact us to lend your skills and experience to help coordinate an educational newsletter for a popular animal welfare organization.

Our hotline gets calls from people all over the country. We have offered a lot of help with bonding, which often takes a lot of time and suggestions. We are happy to help people and rabbits make the most of their coexistence. However, over the past 6 months we seemed to have an had abundance of very misinformed people wanting rabbits for all the wrong reasons. Read about some of them here.
NEVER use Frontline if your rabbit has fleas. Frontline's FAQ page says this!
See our Flea page for help with fleas on rabbits.

Rabbits or other animals should not be sold at flea markets or by people on the street trying to sell off litters from their animals..
Unfortunately, the Sacramento House Rabbit Society cannot take in rabbits from private homes. This is because our first responsibility is to the rabbits at the local shelters -- they are truly "eleventh hour" rabbits and for them, the SHRS foster program may be the last chance. If you have found a rabbit, or if you wish to find another home for your own rabbit, take a look at our flyer Finding a Home for an Unwanted Rabbit. This will give you ideas for things you can do to find a loving home for your bunny.
Abandoning any animal is a misdemeanor under the California penal code section 597S.
If you cannot keep your rabbit, never turn them loose or abandon them. Pet rabbits are totally domesticated and depend on humans for shelter and protection. Do the humane thing and surrender your rabbit to an animal shelter. See our poster "Food; not Free"
