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!
To get to us at Floyd Lamb Park, From 215, exit to 95 north to Durango Blvd, the go right (NE). Follow Durango to Brent Lane, go right (E). This will take you to entrance. After the fee booth, take the first right and proceed towards the white fence. Drive on the road past the fence, after it curves our building will be straight ahead on the right.
Please do not use your GPS for Floyd Lamb Park, 9200 Tule Springs Rd as it will take you to another area of the park.
For appointments please email Dave at LasVegasBunniesMatter@gmail.com or text at (562) 373-5376
Adoption prices are as follows:
$80 for all of the older bonded pairs from the Floyd Lamp Park rescue. These bunnies have all been fully funded and have been vaccinated, chipped and fixed. We will not separate any bonded bunnies.
$100 for all bunnies rescued or received after October 2019.. These rescued bunnies have all been vaccinated and chipped, however not all have been fixed and they have not been fully funded. Surrenders are usually not vaccinated, chipped or fixed. Here, we are asking you to pay for the cost of the spay or neuter, regardless if it has been done yet. Most bunnies have already been bonded, and we will not separate them. We occasionally have singles, however bunnies get lonely and do not recommend a single bunny to live by themselves.
Regardless of the price, all adoptions will receive the following:
X-Pen, 2 litter boxes, 25lb bag of woody pellets for litter box, 25lb bag of food pellets, bag of hay, food bowl, water bowl, tarp, nail clippers, hidey box, carrier and of course, your bunnies! This package is valued at $85.00
Currently payment for adoptions can only be made to our GoFundMe page at:
OR via Paypal to paypal.me/DaveSchweiger
In the event one or both of your bunnies need fixed, it will be considered an “Adopt to Foster”. By law, we can not adopt out a bunny that has not been fixed. You will fill out the appropriate paperwork, pay for the bunny and make an appointment for the spay/neuter. Once the bunny has been fixed, he/she will be officially yours.
Payment for the spay/neuter can be done through us, or directly to Southern Hills Animal Hospital, using the linl below.

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.

If you decide that a bunny is not right for you, please consider giving a donation to help save more of the “DUMPSITE” bunnies.
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 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.
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, everything you need to get you started with your new family member is included!
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.
