OUR ADOPTION PROCESS

If you're looking to learn about adopting rabbits from the Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue, you're in the right place!

Depending on whether you're looking to adopt a pair of rabbits or a friend for your single rabbit, we'll direct you to some reading. Finally, you'll have access to the adoption application.

We'll also outline the benefits of adopting from us as well as show you rabbits that need private rehoming. These are not Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue rabbits and do not go through our typical adoption process, but we are helping increase their visibility.

If you're brand new to rabbits, we recommend reading our Bunnies for Beginners content first.

COVID-19 NOTICE

Rocky Mountain House Rabbit Rescue adheres to CDC and State of Colorado recommendations for COVID-19 safety.

 

Our volunteers wear facial coverings, practice social distancing, take their temperature upon entry, and regularly wash their hands. We ask that anyone visiting the Bunny Barn has their temperature taken at the door with our contactless thermometer, wear a facial covering, and practice social distancing. If you are feeling unwell at the time of your appointment, please email your adoption counselor to reschedule.

 

In addition, during the COVID-19 pandemic, visits to the Bunny Barn are by appointment only. We thank you for your cooperation.

PRIVATE REHOMING

These rabbits are being rehomed privately and are being posted as a courtesy by RMHRR.

When rehoming a rabbit, you will deal directly with the rabbits' current owner, and we advise all owners to require a rehoming fee.

ADVANTAGES TO ADOPTING FROM RMHRR

  • We help you determine whether rabbits are a good choice for your situation and help you avoid mistakes when bringing rabbits into your home.
     

  • We teach you how to care for your rabbits, how to identify symptoms requiring veterinary care before they become serious, and put you in contact with a good rabbit veterinarian in your area. This is important because most veterinarians are not able to treat rabbits – rabbits are considered “exotics” from a medical point of view.
     

  • We are committed to helping you solve any problem which comes up as long as you have your rabbits.
     

  • If you are adopting a bond mate for a rabbit you already have, we guarantee a successful pairing, even if we have to start the process from scratch a second time (which is rare).
     

  • We offer a “health line” service to our adopters in case you have an emergency when your vet isn’t available, or to help you determine if you need to see a vet.
     

  • We have a greater variety of rabbits to choose from than you will find almost anywhere in the state.
