I believe we only have 1 rabbit rescue in our state. There might be more. The one local is not an actual place. The rabbits are in foster homes. In my opinion they are a bit strict with rules when it comes allowing the bunnies to be adopted out. I understand rules and guidelines are in place likely for good reason and to protect the rabbits. It seems excessive though. Several of the rabbits have been there for years. One situation was publicized and there were many people interested. Did they apply to adopt? I do not know. I had tried to adopt an older bunny and wasn’t allowed to apply because I have a young rabbit who is not spayed. I looked at a rabbit rescue that has a local rabbit house society chapter 4 hours away. They seemed much more open if you wanted to adopt to let you. How common is it to have fairly strict rules for adoption? The one local likes you to apply, they like to make a match then they supervise visits and pet introductions which they decide if you are a match. If you have kids, other pets you may not be a good match to them. Not all kids are loud, many children can be taught how to handle rabbits etc. How common is it to have strict guidelines? In your area are the no kill shelter’s keeping pets for years?
