How to Adopt
When you adopt, you save a life. Each rabbit who comes to House Rabbit Society was transferred from an animal shelter, whether because they were sick or hurt, because they were scared, or because the shelter simply had too many rabbits. House Rabbit Society is able to save their lives thanks to people like you who choose to adopt!

Step 1 – View adoptable rabbits
New rabbits arrive from shelters weekly, so check back frequently!
Step 2 – Submit an Adoption Questionnaire
Complete our Adoption Questionnaire
This is for adopters 18 years or older in the San Francisco Bay Area (Richmond, CA). For other House Rabbit Society chapters, go here.
Step 3 – Sign up for a class
For first-time adopters, seasoned adopters, and those looking to bring home a rabbit to a household that does not already have a rabbit, sign up for our Rabbit Care 101 digital class.
For those looking to find their resident rabbit a friend, sign up for our Bunny Bonding 101 digital class.
Step 4 – Schedule a pickup
After your digital class, an HRS representative will email you with more information on the rabbit of your choice and schedule a Foster-to-Adopt pickup. If it is love, you can finalize the adoption from the convenience of your home.
*Through the month of September, walk-in adoptions are welcome Saturdays and Sundays. There is no speed dating at the time. Not all rabbits are located at the Rabbit Center. If you are interested in a rabbit located in a foster home, complete the digital adoption process.*

Learn about Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV)
Read about Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) and how to keep your rabbit safe. Rabbits adopted from House Rabbit Society have had their first annual RHDV vaccine, but it will be important to take your rabbit to the vet every year to be vaccinated. You will also need to continue to take biosecurity precautions at home, as no vaccine provides 100% protection.
