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.

HELLO, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU, PLEASE SAY HI TO US.

You matter – everything is important. EVERYTHING. We are here – Tell us about your rabbit. Tell us about your rabbit’s life and your thoughts. Share with us. Please ask questions – this is a way we can all share and help each other. We can learn from each other.

HRC FOSTER SITES NEEDED  DECEMBER 2021
HRC IS IN NEED OF FOSTER HOMES

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 info@hopline.org or 413-439-7HRC.
