Las Vegas Bunnies
Available For Adoption
DUE TO THE CURRENT VIRUS PANDEMIC, YOU WILL HAVE TO TEXT, CALL OR EMAIL FOR AN APPOINTMENT TO VIEW & ADOPT A BUNNY OR TWO (MOST OF OUR BUNNIES ARE BONDED PAIRS).
We are currently rescuing baby bunnies out of a Las Vegas neighborhood until we can rescue the adults (a lot of respiratory infections we are effectively treating). Our total cost for just rescued bunny is now $200 or more ($125 to spay/neuter, $50 to vaccinate & chip plus other meds & other treatments to get them back to health if not healthy) and this does not count food & equipment requirements.
Once deemed healthy and vaccinated (vaccinations to begin in early July, 2020), 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).
The current adult bonded pair adoption fees will remain at $80 with equipment because they have already been fixed and we separately raised the money to get them vaccinated.
Once they are old enough to be fixed, we will use your original $125 donation to spay or neuter them (You can donate directly to our vet if you wish at the time of foster to adopt). Once they are spay or neutered, they will officially go from being your foster to being your pet.
Current bunnies available can be seen by clicking the link below:
Floyd Lamb Park adoptions will be EVERY SATURDAY & SUNDAY from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Park (Current target date is July 11, 2020 for public access due to the RHDV2 rabbit virus and the corona-virus.).
Adoptions for the Floyd Lamb Park bunnies will be at our staging building at Floyd Lamb Park. We have signs posted every Saturday & Sunday. If interested in seeing the current bunnies up for adoption Monday through Friday, please email Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
To be sure adopting a rabbit is right for you, we strongly 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.
