We hit our 25th YEAR ANNIVERSARY in 2022!!
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: $60.00 for a single rabbit/$110.00 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.

PUMPKIN & NUTMEG
Looking for a mate: No
Special requirements: None
These sisters are darling.
The darker bunny, Pumpkin and her sibling Nutmeg are very curious rabbits.
They are both wonderful eaters and are great with their litter habits now. They are very happy, active & outgoing girls. A joy for any home. They are good with children and will climb in your lap for treats.
Like most rabbits they do not like being picked up but they are fond of being petted.
Coming from a hoarding situation, their exact age is unknown, but these girls deserve the very best furever home possible.
Breed: New Zealand
Age: Unknown, but young
Looking for a mate: No
Special requirements: She will do best in a home with no loud dogs and children.
Her foster mom has been affectionately calling her Blanche.
Blanche is a large rabbit but beautiful, refined and a gentle girl. She loves her cardboard box tunnels, tents and hidey boxes, and spending time relaxing on her bedroom window seat, intently observing the comings and goings in the backyard, and fascinated by the birds and squirrels and other neighborhood activity. She has perfect litter box and personal grooming habits! There is nothing more perfect or satisfying than watching a happy Lady Blanche unabashedly perform binkies and full-body flops! She loves her stuffed bunny friends but we don’t feel she is a good potential bond mate.
She has shown aggressive behavior towards other rabbits. She would do best as a single rabbit in a somewhat quiet home with no children or dogs. When it comes to being approached, touched and handled, while she is not an instantly affectionate bunny, there are simple techniques to use with her so that she will remain calm and still enough to be petted and massaged around the ears and shoulder blades and stroked backwards towards her tail. And she will actually love it. But not for too long. Blanche has been in our foster care for almost a year now and really deserves a loving forever home to call her own.
Looking for a mate: No
Special requirements: She is very comfortable with dogs, but would prefer to be a solo bun.
Meet Ivy… a sweet, quiet, girl who will melt your heart.
She is the very definition of a snuggler. She is looking for a human who will give her plenty of head rubs while she nestles into your lap or besides you.
She is very comfortable with dogs , but would prefer to be a solo bun. She is a tidy girl and has excellent litter box habits.
Looking for a mate: Yes
This big, beautiful boy is waiting for his forever home. Fletcher has lots of personality and energy.
He’s a curious bun who loves to explore. He enjoys being stroked and scratched behind his ears. His litter box habits are good and he’s not a fussy eater. Fletcher is very independent and will nip if annoyed.
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 413-439-7HRC.
