Some Bunny Wants To Love You
Rescue is simply taking from a situation that is less than ideal for the rabbit and putting it in a better place. We are called out regularly to catch rabbits that have been left to fend on their own. Domestic rabbits may appear to be doing okay in the wild, but they really aren't. They do not have the 'instinct' to survive. That is where rescue comes in. Rabbits running loose create traffic hazards, destroy yards and encourage bad behavior in other animals.
Surrendering is another way of saying 'give it away'. However, by surrendering to SBRR, your rabbit will receive medical treatment, will be spayed or neutered and will only then become eligible for adoption to another home. It is our goal to help improve the lives of both the human and the rabbit. There is a $35.00 surrender donation that goes towards the care of the rabbit and when surrendering, any rabbit items that could be donated with them would be greatly appreciated.
Spay or Neuter
How many times have you heard someone say 'they were supposed to be both boys!' Rabbits can be difficult to determine their sex at young ages and are often sexed wrong! Thus you believe you have 2 boys and end up with 14 rabbits in about 31 days. Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted pregnancy, overpopulation and improves the long term health of your rabbit. SBRR does not promote the breeding of rabbits to sale as pets.
Adopt don't shop. You hear it everywhere but it is true. Rabbits that are available for adoption through our rescue are happy, healthy and well adjusted rabbits. They are handled regularly and get socialized with other animals so they have lost some of their 'fear and flight' response. Currently, private party spay or neuter is anywhere from $285.00 to $589.00. Adopting from us includes spay or neuter. As a non profit, we are not looking to get rich. In fact we are lucky to break even! We love what we do and we want to find good homes for those that we love, THE RABBITS!
Education for Prevention of Cruelty
It is our belief that most humans do not intend to be cruel to their rabbits, it just happens because the human doesn't know any better. It is also understood that the perception of cruelty is different to each human. By educating the human on what is 'considered' cruel in the rabbit world they then have a choice and can choose the right path. That is where we offer education to give them other options and help them understand why this is considered cruel. Do unto rabbits as you would have done unto you?
Foster Rabbits for FFA Programs in High School
We believe that FFA (Future Farmers of America) is a vital part of education. We also believe that not all FFA students want to raise an animal for show, sell and slaughter. That is where we come in. Students can foster rabbits for their FFA assignment and when the assignment is over the rabbit is returned to SBRR! It is a win win situation.
