The Short List: Are Rabbits Right for You?

  1. Rabbits are wonderful & adorable pets, but very different from dogs or cats. A rabbit may not fit everybody's situation. They have different behavior & care needs. Learn about the basic differences.
  2. Read our 9 Rabbit Myths poster. Our handy Shelter Poster highlights the main points to consider a rabbit as a housepet.
  3. A pet rabbit should not live outside. You will be able to enjoy & care for them better when they are inside with you. Consider these reasons.
  4. Rabbits are cute & cuddly. Are you primarily interested in getting a bunny for your child? Find out if a rabbit is good pet for your child.
  5. Rabbits are better suited to certain adults & households. See if you are a match.
  6. Rabbits are not "starter pets". They deserve as much care & attention as a dog or cat that you would keep forever. Carefully consider your commitment to keeping a rabbit. Read our Easter Bunny Poem.
  7. Although rabbits do not need vaccinations like cats & dogs, they have their own medical concerns due to their unique physiology.
  8. Observe house rabbits in their natural habitat on our video page.
  9. Hop to our library of fliers to learn the essentials of rabbit care & behavior.

Are You Looking to Find a New Home for Your Rabbit?

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"
