Fosters Needed for Rabbits at a Research Lab

We are in need of fosters so that we can save the lives of 16 female rabbits currently at a research lab. The lab will release them to us as soon as December 2022. Will you help us safe a life by fostering one or more of these precious rabbits who have endured the cruelty of animal testing?

Send us an email to

All the rabbits are New Zealand females who are young. They look like Lola pictured below who was also rescued from  research lab.

This beautiful Harlequin Rex was abandoned last night at an after hours emergency Vet clinic. He is currently with one of our Vets who is performing surgery to remove the abscess and a tooth that has grown into the side of his cheek. Please send him good thoughts.

All 28 Beautiful rabbits are safe & being transported to rescues, where they finally get to begin a hoppy life.

It’s been a very difficult few days. We found out the rabbits needed to be saved from going to slaughter right after Hoppington passed away. It was difficult to organize this rescue while grieving the loss of such a sweet rabbit. But we knew we had to carry on & help these 28 rabbits discover a beautiful life. We’ve endearingly called this the Hoppington Rescue, in the memory of a courageous rabbit who had to endure a lot of pain in his young life. Thank you Hoppington, you gave us the courage, strength, and motivation to save the lives of 28 of your friends. ?

Thanks to ‪#‎FarmSanctuary‬ for arranging placement & transporting 14 rabbits to the fabulous folks at the ‪#‎SanDiegoHumaneSociety‬
Thank you to the ‪#‎RabbitAdvocates‬ , ‪#‎IndigoAnimalRescue‬,‪#‎AnimalPlace‬, ‪#‎LeapsandBoundsRabbitRescue‬ for giving these rabbits a place to Bunny.

We are also thankful that this farm decided to discontinue raising rabbits for meat & reached out to to have the lives of these rabbits saved. We can only hope & pray that more farms see rabbits as we do, pets & not food.
