The Missouri House Rabbit Society is an all volunteer, non-profit rabbit welfare organization affiliated with the national House Rabbit Society. Our primary goals are:
  • rescuing rabbits from "death row" at animal shelters
  • finding loving, indoor homes for them,
  • and educating people on the proper care of pet rabbits.

**Please note that all of our rabbits are available for adoption as indoor pets only.  We will not adopt to those who house outdoors**

MOHRS Needs Foster Homes - Yesterday!

We currently have a critical shortage of foster homes, and our "dump season" is just around the corner!  If you are interested in providing temporary shelter and care for one or more of the deserving bunnies in the charge of the House Rabbit Society, please email us at hrsmissouri@aol.com and we will be happy to talk with you about what it takes to become a foster parent.

 

Are You Looking for a New Home for Your Rabbit?

If you wish to surrender your rabbit, please be advised that the Missouri House Rabbit Society is simply unable at this time to accept any rabbits other than those previously adopted from our foster system.  We want very much to help, but our resources are too limited.

Please remember that adoption of any pet is a lifetime commitment to that animal, and that having adopted a pet, you have taken on that responsibility.  We strongly encourage you to make decisions about adoption or surrender of any animal with careful consideration and full knowledge of the possibilities.  Parents, especially, should be aware of the lasting lessons their children can learn from living up to a promise, and respecting their pets as "forever" family members.

If the reason for "getting rid of" your rabbit is behavior related, we may be able to offer advice that can improve the situation so your bunny can remain in your home.  Sadly, there are many, many more abandoned rabbits than good homes. Please understand that re-homing your bunny may be difficult.  We hope that you will reconsider, and allow us to share some information that will make living with your house rabbit a great experience for you and your bunny.  Whatever you decide, we are eager to help, and are available to discuss how to find a loving home for your pet - maybe in your own home!

Please call the bunny hotline at: 816/356-3900 or email us at HRSMissouri@aol.com.

Did You Adopt a Rabbit from the MO HRS?

If you have adopted a rabbit from the Missouri House Rabbit Society and are unable to meet your contractual obligation, you must contact us and we will take the rabbit(s) back into our care. Once adoption has been verified, we will arrange to take custody of the rabbit(s).

You can help!

We encourage you to voice your displeasure to the management of all pet supply stores that sell rabbits, such as Petsmart and Petco. Their decision to sell rabbits (and other small animals) has incresed the need for our services.  Let them know how you feel about the sale of small animals as impulse buys and throwaway pets.  Their profits depend on the continued patronage of pet owners, so let them know that their actions will have financial consequences because you will be "voting with your dollars" and taking your business to stores that do not choose to exploit small animals for profit.

For stores that support small animal rescue, please contact us at hrsmissouri@aol.com and we will be happy to give you the names of vendors that have chosen rescue over riches.
