Rabbit Assistance Information
Domestic rabbits are now the third most common species turned into shelters and rescues nationwide. Many shelter facilities are not prepared for an intake of a pet rabbit. With some creative modification, you can set up an area for small pets such as rabbits and rodents.
When dealing with an intake of many bunnies, it is often difficult to find facilities to take transfers. In New York State, the resources are very scarce. You can try your local House Rabbit Society Chapter at www.rabbit.org for more information or assistance.
For large rescues (seizures, relinquishments from animal collectors, etc.) please call Joanne Cronan Hamoy at Spring Farm CARES at (315) 737-0933 for assistance in organizing such endeavors.
Spring Farm CARES is always at maximum capacity for rabbit relinquishments. We are often called from other shelters to take in rabbits. About 60% of our bunnies are from other shelters. Please call us first and we will do our best to help you. We can help you with adoption packets on rabbit care. We also have packets available for veterinarian/health care staff on rabbit care.
Foster Help Needed for Rabbits and Pocket Pets
We are often in need of good foster homes for rabbits and pocket pets. Many times we are involved with the relinquishment of large numbers of these animals at once. If you are interested in becoming a foster home, please call Joanne Hamoy at (315) 737-0933, M-F 9am-5pm or contact her by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You will indeed be making a great difference in the life of an animal in desperate need.
Rabbits and Pocket Pets for Adoption
We always have rabbits that are ready for adoption and frequently Pocket Pets as well. Pocket Pets include the wee little ones such as hamsters, guinea pigs, mice, rats, gerbils, etc. Please contact us to see if we have any pocket pets available for adoption. Information on Rabbits and Pocket Pets is available by calling Joanne at (315) 737-0933, M-F, 9am-5pm.
