Polka is a young adult, spayed female. She was dumped off the side of a rural road left to fend for herself. She was obviously terrified when CCRR people when out to catch her.
Despite this she is still a sweet bunny. Polka needs lots of love and family who understands rabbits. A calm household with older children would be ideal. Daily exercise and explore time is must. She seems to want a bunny friend, so if you have a single, already neutered male rabbit, contact us fora bunny date!
Polka is an exceptionally clean rabbit, who would be a good free roam house bunny.
If you are interested in adopting Polka, please review our Adoption Policy and Procedure page.

Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue
Urgent need for Adopters and Foster Parents

Dear Rabbit Lovers,

We have an urgent need for adopters and foster parents. This year has been an exceptionally bad year for rabbit dumping and unwanted litters. Our local shelter is at full capacity along with many other shelters through out the Bay Area.

Last week was one of our busiest rescue weeks. Recently, rabbits have been dumped in local parks, we went out and rescued 2 Himalayan girls. These girls were dumped at a park next to a power plant with a colony of feral cats where they could have been an easy target for predators. They were obviously well cared for prior to being dumped as they were clean, healthy and used to people. We were told by parks department that other parks had rabbits dumped in them but the rabbits have gone missing.

We received an urgent call about a rabbit found in a dumpster on a hot day. Treasure, as we named her, was in her cage with no food or water. She is the sweetest rabbit and loves to be pet. Treasure is a beautiful agouti lionhead girl.

This past Saturday we were given un-weaned baby bunnies which were being given away for free at the flea market. They were in a dirty bird cage with no water and bird seed for food. The smallest one, Pipsqueak has really bad urine scalding. They would surely have perished from hunger and improper care, if we did not rescue them.

All these rescues including our most recently large scale backyard rescue in Martinez have really put us at max capacity. With as many rabbits in need of rescue, we have become full and are unable to help until we can get some rabbits adopted into forever homes.

If you have been thinking about adopting a rabbit, now is a good time. We have openings for fosters and foster to adopt families who are not quite sure they are ready for adoption. There are many sweet, wonderful rabbits for adoption or foster.
For more information our adoption policy and foster program can be found on our website.
