As of October 2021, the adoption fee is $180 per rabbit. The Adoption fee for bunnies that have been here before May 2021 is $150 per bunny. This covers microchip, spay/neuter fee, and RHDV2 vaccination.
Please note the individual adoption fees below and on Petfinder. Please note that the fees do reflect whether the bunny is a single or bonded pair / trio.
Please fill out and send the adoption form, or call the rescue to arrange a visit. We will get in touch to have a brief discussion about bunny ownership so you are aware of what you are getting into, arrange a visit to meet the bunnies, work with you to ensure that you home is prepared for the bunny, then finalize the adoption.
We do ask that you consider signing our Photo Consent form so that we can post the good news with pictures of you and your new friend(s) and post any updates that may be sent to us after the adoption has been finalized and the bunny settled into their new home.
No. Bonded bunnies must be adopted together. They are best friends or hus-bun and bun-wife for a reason and cannot be separated.
Please see the House Rabbit Society website at https://rabbit.org for bunny care, housing, and medical advice.
If you are unsure if introducing a rabbit into your household, we can work with potential adopters on a case by case basis to see if it would be possible to have a short "trial run" before the adoption is finalized. It is better to find these things out before an adoption fee is paid.
Please contact us if you need to surrender your bunny to a safe place so that we can make arrangements to take the bunny in either with us or another rescue in the region. We will send a form to fill out when a bunny is surrendered so we can get as much information as possible about the bunny (or bunnies) that we are taking in.
Please be aware that there may be instances where we will be at capacity for rabbits, but we will do all we can to take in a surrendered bunny and work with other rescues in the region so that a bunny is safe at a rescue rather than being dumped and left to fend for itself outside. (Where there is a good chance that they won't make it.)
We can also help by placing a courtesy listing on Petfinder to help re-home a bunny. Please contact us so we can work with you to collect the necessary information and help you through the process of selecting a new family for your buns. We'd rather help folks with a Petfinder listing than seeing bunnies listed on Craigslist or social media marketplace sites. Please consider making a small donation to the rescue, the bunnies appreciate it.
When one of my bonded rabbits died, I let the remaining bunny spend a couple of hours with his mate to understand what happened. I then removed the deceased bunny and took him for cremation. (Both of them were males, a lot of bunnies do well in a same sex relationship if both are either spayed or neutered.)
The bunny left will be grieving. Sometimes they act as though they don’t care about anything. Now is a good time for extra pets, scritches, lovins, and a few extra treats. Or, if that’s not your bunny’s style, just get on the floor with him and spend quiet time. Bunnies have a strong emotional attachment to their mate and it will be entirely up to your bunny as to how long his grieving process will take. I’ve seen it take anywhere from four days to four weeks.
But they do move on. Don’t be in a big rush to bond him or her with another bunny unless you can tell he’s ready. Only you know your bunny. They will eventually bond with another rabbit and go on living their wonderfully hoppy lives. Their sorrow is real, but they will move on.
Please fill out the following documents and send them to The Rabbit Tree if you are interested in adopting one of our lovable bunnies.
For more information, please see their profiles on Petfinder. Please consider opening your heart and home to any one of these bunnies, especially couples and ones who have been at the rescue the longest. Bonded bunnies can be very self-entertaining and give you all kinds of laughs.
Al (White & Brown) and Dennis (Black) are brothers who are peas in a pod. Al has a bit of a mischievous and escape artist streak, but Dennis is his best friend. These two are very friendly and playful bunnies who can keep each other entertained.
Amy is a single, sweet girl who enjoys laying around soaking in the scenery. Such a sweet bunny, extremely timid but very tolerant recipient of snuggles. She would prefer a home with no dogs or small children due to her sensitive nature, but is learning that pets from the adoring public are a good thing.
A single, spayed female who likes impersonating books in her spare time. Very quiet bunny, best in a home with no dogs, but doesn't mind cats. With some love and patience, we are sure she will come out of her shell.
Bonnie is an energetic one year old Mini Rex as of April 5th. She isn't a snuggle bug for long, but will come up for snuggles when she wants them. She got her first chance to practice her leash skills with a group of Girl Scouts and did such a good job!
Charlotte and Milo are a sweet couple who are madly in love. Charlotte is the black and white bunny with the propeller ears and her hus-bun Milo is the gray/blue bunny.
These two amigos enjoy each other's company. Dasher is the middle sized bunny and Fiona is the biggest. Updated picture to come.

Henry and Marie are a madly in love hus-bun and bun-wife couple who would love nothing more than the ultimate bunny castle to have as a hidey hole. Be warned, don't take them outside unless they have leashes! They are also not "hold me" bunnies, but with enough patience, they may come out of their shells.
Hershey is a small but fierce little bunny who is an absolute love bug once she is out of her house. She needs an experienced family who will have the patience to work with her to adjust to a new house. She will be available for adoption in May 2022 after her spay surgery.
Kelly (Black & White) is a pip of a boy who recently found himself a Bun-wife in Effie (Black), a timid bunny on her own. They enjoy the outdoors and being able to roam around the house as they please.
Jacque is a very sweet 9 month old bunny. Unfortunately it didn't quite work out for her and she came back to the rescue on April 14th, when she will be available for adoption. Her parents are Jasper and Labatt.
