Benefit for Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue
Come join us at Sonoma Pet and Aquatics for a fun day with bunnies! We will be doing a bake sale and rabbit themed boutique. We will have donated cupcakes from a local cupcake shop and raffle for a Baskin Robbins cake. Plus, vegan treats!

Shop for yourself and your rabbit. Our resident groomer will be set up for grooming and nails for your rabbit. If you have an already spayed or neutered bunny, bring them by for some time in our group play area.
Our event is a great for prospective bunny owners to come and get information about owning a house rabbit. For those rabbit owned people, you can talk with our rabbit specialists.

All proceeds will go to Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue’s medical and spay and neuter fund.
Hope to see you there!

 

Rabbit of the Month: Riley and Harley

image4- Resized

Harley and Riley are two bonded brothers born May 27, 2014. They are part of the Martinez rabbit rescue. Harley and Riley have spent their entire lives with their foster family and are very much loved. They are big boys who have good litter box skills and enjoy running up and down the hallway during their free time. Harley is a cinnamon harlequin/lop mix. Sometimes his ears go straight up and sometimes flop like a lop. He enjoys to be petted and loves to lounge around as the Prince he is. Riley is a white/brown spotted mix. He is slightly smaller than Harley and more outgoing. He nose-bumps as he runs by and loves his banana. They both enjoy hay – lots of hay – and their greens as well. They would do well with children – nothing seems to bother them, they are so laid back! They would be great free- roaming bunnies and with the right family they will blossom.

If you are interested in adopting Riley and Harley, 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.
