Adoption Process

How does the adoption process work?
Applications must be approved (applying does not guarantee approval). Approval is based on the
best interest of the rabbit (s). The SPCA Animal Rescue reserves the right to refuse any application
we think is not in the rabbit’s best interest.
Rabbits are not recommended for children under 10.

What do we expect from people who wish to adopt?

  • Please ensure you are willing to commit to the rabbit for his/her natural life. Please think about the long-term responsibilities of owning a rabbit, approximately 8 – 12 years.
  • You must be 21 years of age or older and have a valid identification with a current address.
  • House rabbits cannot be adopted as a gift or for breeding purposes.
  • All animals in your home must be spayed or neutered (if age appropriate).
  • All other dogs or cats (if applicable) in your household must be licensed.

How long does it take to adopt a rabbit?

  • If approved, you will be contacted.
  • An appointment for a Meet and Greet will be scheduled.
  • In most instances an adoption can take place the same day if the rabbit is ready.

What does the adoption fee include?
The adoption fee includes the spay/neuter.
What happens when you take your pet home?
Rabbits adopted from the SPCA Animal Rescue must be transported home in a pet carrier.
Safety and Prevention is very important when owning a house rabbit.
Rabbits will chew, dig and snip things like electrical cords. Prevention is key to keeping your rabbit

It will take a few days to a few weeks for your rabbit (s) to adjust to his/her new surroundings.
