HERE ARE OUR RABBITS
Call us / email us
Adoptable rabbits are taken from shelters/animal care and adoption centers, examined by one of the rabbit-savvy vets who work regularly with HRC and spayed/neutered if not yet performed. Our rabbits are in loving foster home where they are socialized, litter-trained, and prepared for a loving, permanent, indoor adoptive home. Many of our rabbits are bonded pair when possible and are available for adoption only as a bonded couple.
By adopting a rescued rabbit, individuals are giving a bunny a new “leap on life.”
Adoption Fees: $85.00 for a single rabbit/$160.00 for a pair of rabbits.
All rabbits are socialized, spayed/neutered and litter box trained.
We are being VACCINATED or SCHEDULED FOR VACCINATION for RHDV and microchipped.

Beatrix is a spayed female rabbit, tan with an adorable dark brown “mask” across her mouth. Born on October 6, 2022, she came to HRC via the CT Humane Society in late December 2022 as part of a large owner surrender case. She was spayed in March 2023 and has been fully vaccinated for RHDV2 and microchipped.
Beatrix is a good eater and has good litterbox habits. She is very active and likes to jump up on furniture, although she can be a little clumsy and loud when she does. She is a very sweet girl who needs a forever home!

Best with someone with bunny experience.
Hamlet is little adult Harlequin male rabbit. Hammie may be small but he has a big personality, lots of attitude and sometimes grunts at you.
He really is a sweetheart in disguise and he adores being petted on his head and between his ears. He is cuter as can be!! He has impeccable litter box habits and is a good eater! He would do best in a home with bunny experience.
WHAT WE DO – ADOPTABLE RABBITS AND RABBIT HEALTH CARE HOPLINE.ORG
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. Hopline.org is here only to help rabbits.
WE ARE A NON PROFIT 501(C)3
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. The hopline is our way of helping rabbits find an indoor home and help the adopters.
WE EXIST BECAUSE RABBITS NEED HELP
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.
NOTE: We do not accept rabbits from the public.
Before you surrender your rabbit to a shelter please read our tips on dealing with common problems.
HRC IS IN NEED OF FOSTER HOMES – PLEASE HELP
We have been receiving more calls to take in abandoned rabbits, so we are looking to expand our current foster network. The only way we can save abandoned bunnies is with great foster homes. We are looking for homes in the Springfield, MA/Hartford, CT area that can foster a rabbit or pair until they are adopted. Please consider opening your home and fostering a wonderful rabbit! For more information contact us at email@example.com or 413-439-7HRC.
