House Rabbit Connection has adoptable rabbits and information in rabbit care.

Welcome to our

We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit corporation with the following goals:
To take in adoptable abandoned rabbits, provide foster care, have them spayed or neutered and find quality, indoor homes for them while also educating the public and other organizations about rabbit care.
The House Rabbit Connection of Massachusetts & Connecticut is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation and licensed chapter of the House Rabbit Society.  All donations are tax deductible within the extent allowed by law.

Because animal shelters have limited space for rabbits many rabbits face the possibility of euthanasia. Adopting a rescued rabbit from HRC makes room for another shelter rabbit to be placed in HRC foster care.  Enjoy our hopline.

NOTE: We do not accept rabbits from the public.

Before you surrender your rabbit to a shelter, read our tips on dealing with common problems.

TUESDAY JANUARY 29, 2019  Ozzy

Today we lost a special sanctuary bunny.  Ozzy passed away today, at 13 years old.  Our santuary home care takers posted this note today:

“I’m broken hearted to say that sweet Ozzy is at the Rainbow Bridge. After finding a sore inside his front leg, it turned out to be a large cancerous tumor that extended up to his neck. At age 13 his legs had been failing him for some time and he was now showing signs of constant discomfort. It was time to say goodbye. He is now able to be reunited with his life long love, Dusty, who passed almost 2 years ago. Binky free my loveable little bunny 💖”

Our heart and love is extended to this special family for caring for Ozzy for so many years.  Ozzy was so very loved.  This beautiful rabbit became a sanctuary rabbit – with our pledge that we would care for him forever.   With his special needs, HRC has taken care of him for many years.   He became part of a very warm family home and they are grieving today with thsi loss.

Our hearts ache today as we learn of his passing.  Ozzy, we are thinking of you.  Thank you Joanne.  Joanne and family, we send love and hugs to you.

JACK – We miss you 
It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of Jack Lotko on August 18, 2018, longtime HRC Board of Directors member, who lost his battle with cancer. In the words of HRC President Marlene Wilhelm, Jack “for most of his life was a champion for animals and one of the sweetest, kindest-hearted people who blessed this earth”. We at HRC send our condolences to his wife Tracy, his son John, and his family and friends. We are all the blessed for having known Jack, and we will miss him greatly.
