Las Vegas Bunnies
Available For Adoption
Starting on 10/17/2020, we are going to start public adoption events again at Floyd Lamb Park every Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM.
We will still do “private” bunny adoptions by “appointment only” as well on other days!
DUE TO THE CURRENT VIRUS PANDEMIC & RHDV2 BUNNY VIRUS, YOU CAN TEXT OR EMAIL FOR A PRIVATE APPOINTMENT TO VIEW & ADOPT A BUNNY OR TWO ON SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY (MOST OF OUR BUNNIES ARE BONDED PAIRS).
WE CAN ONLY ACCEPT DONATIONS FOR ADOPTIONS EITHER VIA GO FUND ME (https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-us-save-the-nw-vegas-dumpsite-bunnies) OR via Paypal to paypal.me/DaveSchweiger at this time.
Please email Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org or text at (562) 373-5376
WE NEED YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT TO SAVE THESE BABY BUNNIES!
We are currently rescuing baby bunnies out of a Northwest Las Vegas neighborhood until we can rescue all the adults (a lot of respiratory infections we are effectively treating). Our total cost for just rescuing ONE bunny is now over $200 on average ($125 to spay/neuter, $60 to vaccinate & chip plus other meds (antibiotics, eye drops, etc.) & other treatments to get them back to health if not healthy) and this does not count our growing food & equipment requirements.
Once deemed healthy, they will be available for “foster to adopt” at $125 each (we will provide an x-pen, hay, litter, litter boxes & bunny pellets per 1 or 2 bunnies). We absorb the cost of the meds, vaccinations, chipping and only use your $125 for the spay or neuter required. You will be responsible to take them to our vet (Southern Hills Animal Hospital – Dr. Blakesley) for spay/neuter and vaccination if not done yet.
Alternatively, you can send $125 direct to our vet using this button below. Please just put the name of the bunny or bunnies you are going to “foster to adopt” along with your name.

The current “Floyd Lamb Park” adult bonded pair adoption fees will remain at $80 with equipment because they have already been fixed and we have already separately raised the money to get the adults vaccinated.
Once your “fosters” are spay or neutered, they will officially go from being your fosters to being your pet. Bunnies are at least a 10 YEAR COMMITMENT, so please don’t adopt them if you are not going to love them like you would a member of your family.
Current bunnies available can be seen by clicking the link below:
Floyd Lamb Park adoptions will be EVERY SATURDAY from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Park.
Adoptions for the Floyd Lamb Park bunnies will be at our staging building at Floyd Lamb Park. We have signs posted every Saturday. If interested in seeing the current bunnies up for adoption Sunday through Friday, please email Dave at email@example.com for further information or text at (562) 373-5376.

So you want to adopt a bunny?
How to adopt
The first step is to complete our BUNNY ADOPTION APPLICATION.
Read our rabbit information packet Bunnies Matter Information Packet
To be sure adopting a rabbit is right for you, we also recommend that you read a rabbit care book, such as the “The Bunny Burrow Rabbit Care Guide” which the www.TheBunnyBurrow.org has allowed us to share with you!
Which one (or two) do I choose?
You’ll find a terrific selection of rabbits at our adoption events waiting to meet someone just like you. If you find one you love, please put his or her name in your adoption form.
Please note that most of our rabbits have a rabbit friend (bonded pair) which helps them from being lonely when you are at school or work.
We do not break up these bonded pairs; they must be adopted together.
If you aren’t sure which bunny is right for you, our adoption specialists love playing matchmaker!
What happens after I apply?
After we look over your application, we will talk with you about the rabbit(s) you’d like to adopt, and tell you more about any special needs they might have.
The fun part: How do I get my new rabbit(s)?
We encourage adopters to come to Floyd Lamb Park or Petsmart to meet their potential new rabbit(s) on the weekend after viewing online here or on Facebook. Please text message us via phone (562) 373-5376 or Facebook so we can make sure we can have the bunny or bunnies you want available as many are fostered. Once everyone agrees it’s a good fit, you can return to pick up your bunnies.
All rabbits are required by to be spayed or neutered and vetted by current City and County ordinances. There is an adoption fee of $80 which includes your rabbit(s) and a complete bunny setup with x-pen, litter boxes, woody pellets (litter), bunny pellets, nail cutter, a hidey box, small tarp, water and food dishes and bunny instructions.
Here are some additional things you may need to know.
First, bunnies are inside pets ONLY. Yes, they need to go outside and get some sun and play in the grass, but they are INDOOR pets ONLY.
When baby bunnies are sold for $20 – $30, that is really about $230 because they are now required to be fixed by law plus they can live longer lives if fixed (over 10 years)! If you don’t fix them, many will spray all over the place to mark their territory.
Correct bunny housing requires the correct equipment (exercise pens $35+ each, carrier=-$25+, litter boxes-$5+, paper litter-$14+ for 25#s, water and food dishes-$1 at $1 store, toys-$???, etc.), you are looking easily at a $200+ investment overall just for one or two little bunnies including their adoption fee.
At Bunnies Matter, we prefer to adopt out our bunnies as bonded pairs because when you are at work or school all day, at least they still have each other for company. Occasionally we will have singles or triplets available but we believe bonded pairs are the best way to go.
An ideal house would have no other pets but rabbits can get along with many dogs or cats, you just have to be careful and a bunny should never be left alone with a dog or a cat.
A bunny is not a starter pet for a small child. No one under 6 should probably have a bunny and if a child is under 12, there needs to be close adult supervision to make sure the bunny is being properly taken care of.
