Three cute Colorado rabbits

WELCOME TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE RABBIT RESCUE

We are a Colorado-based non-profit organization that seeks loving homes for the house rabbits in our shelter, rescues house rabbits in need and supports current rabbit owners through our shop and our classes.

 

As a local chapter of the House Rabbit Society, we are dedicated to these goals and strive to educate the public about these often misunderstood companion animals.

IMPORTANT COLORADO RABBIT HEALTH INFORMATION

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) is a highly contagious disease that affects rabbits.

 

The virus will not affect people and other pets, but it is deadly to wild cottontails, other wild lagomorph species such as pikas, and our own domesticated rabbits. Prior to 2020, the virus was not known to affect North American wild lagomorph species and only showed up in isolated pockets of domestic rabbits, where it was quickly controlled.

 

However, in 2020, an outbreak began in the Southwest U.S. and quickly spread among both wild and domestic rabbits.

 

The disease is now endemic in Colorado. RMHRR highly recommends having your pet rabbits vaccinated for RHDV as well as practicing good biosecurity.

 

We've put together some resources to aid rabbit owners here.

SEEN A STRAY RABBIT?

Many domestic house rabbits are abandoned, or escape from outdoor hutches which are inappropriate for house rabbits as a permanent accommodation.
