Adoption centers in the USA with rabbits needing homes 

When contacting a rescue, remember, they have usually un-paid volunteers who are helping! These volunteers do their best to get back to you in a timely manner. Be patient, please. If you don't hear back from someone within 2-3 days, try back, your email or phone call might not have gone through properly! Be sure to leave a phone number repeated twice if you call, one of the biggest reasons that phone calls are not returned from our rescue is the number was not clear!
