Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Rabbit overpopulation is as much of a problem as dog and cat overpopulation. We seek to reduce overpopulation of rabbits, and other animals, by educating people on why they should spay/neuter their animals.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Public Education

We hold public education events at local partner locations where we provide information and answer questions about how to care for domestic house rabbits as an in-home companion according to the House Rabbit Society's philosophy and guidelines.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Families

We promote fostering first before finalizing a formal adoption for our rescued domestic house rabbits. Families or individuals interesting in adopting one or more of our rescued domestic house rabbits must have at least one adult, who is 18 years of age or older, who is designated as the primary caregiver. We require that the primary caregiver(s) sign a formal TBHRR Foster Contract. At that time, we provide a Bunny Basics presentation based on the House Rabbit Society's philosophy and guidelines that provides a thorough gamut of education regarding the proper care for the rescued house rabbit(s) being fostered. After at least a month or two of fostering the rabbit(s), the family or individual(s) may opt to formalize the adoption and the primary caregiver(s) are required to sign a formal TBHRR Adoption Contract.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our most important goal is to educate the general public in the proper care, housing and love that a house rabbit needs. Our ultimate goal is to gain acceptance of rabbits as a normal in-home companion animal, who can find acceptance in our homes.

We provide free public education and training on the proper care of rabbits in order to help the humans involved understand what is necessary for a healthy, happy pet.

We have rabbit-experienced members and volunteers, including House Rabbit Society licensed educators.

We have adopted out over 50 rabbits since inception, and have helped educate numerous people about rabbit health and welfare. In addition, many people who had planned to buy a rabbit from a store have decided not to do so after learning from us about the important details of how to keep a rabbit healthy, and deciding that a rabbit was not a good choice for them.
