Update: Alley developed a retrobulbar abscess due to an infected tooth root. Please keep our girl in your thoughts as we work through treatment.

Alley was rescued from life on the lam by Indiana HRS volunteers. Alley loves to be petted and begs for attention anytime you walk past her pen. Alley is a little possessive in her cage and will try to nip if she is startled while you are working in her pen, or if she thinks you are messing with her stuff too much. Her foster family is working with her on her behavior and has seen improvement, but she would be more suitable for an adopter with rabbit experience and older children.

Hello. I'm Chance. I'm the sweetest, kindest, most endearing bunny you will ever meet! I'm only saying that because it's true!

I came from a pretty tough background. I lived in a cage so small I could barely turn around. I didn't have good nutrition or care. I can't walk very well. My back legs aren't working like they should. I recently had an ex-ray and the vet found a back injury. Ouch! I am working through that with a top-notch vet and they are going to help me on the path to success.

Despite this, I'm very happy-go-lucky! I'm so glad IHRS came and rescued me that I give them kisses every time I see them. I'd wag my tail if I did what dogs do. I'd binky up a storm if my legs were stronger. I try anyway but sometimes I fall over doing it.

I have a bit of work to do to get in as good of health as I can. Once I find out what my future looks like, I'll be on the path to adoption.

If you can speak bunny, have patience and are kind, have prior bunny experience and want to help a bunny that has a heart the size of the Earth that is overflowing with love to shower upon you, then please pick me! I've been waiting for you my whole life! <3

Hi! I'm Freyja. I came into rescue in October 2016 from a really bad situation. I'm so glad to be out of there!

I have been loving my new foster home and have been spayed. I'm a busy bunny who's curious and playful. I love pets and attention. I'll keep you smiling and laughing for hours! I'd be a good fit for first-time adopters if you can keep up with me. I'd be good with children, too, but they'd need to be careful with me because I'm a small, delicate bunny. I know how to speak bunny, so once I get a little older, I may even like a husbun.

Can you give me a furever home where I'm appreciated for being me?

Age: 1 years 7 months

Meet Han!

Han is a tremendously sweet mini-lop who hails from Texas and can do the Kessle run in less than 12 parsecs. He was part of a rabbit confiscation of 120+ rabbits, many of whom have found homes and refuge accross the country.

Han has a heart of gold and would really like a female mate. When we asked him, "what do you think about finding your forever home?" He replied, "that will be wonderful but what about the other bunnies?"

We are getting to know Han a little better, but he's ready to begin dating to find his match. Does your bun need a mate?

Holland Lop
Female
Age: 4 years 3 months
Weight: 3.5 lbs.

Helen is one of the rabbits from the 215+ Holland Lop/Lionhead confiscation of December 2013. She was confiscated because she was living in an unheated garage in fetid conditions.

Helen came into rescue very ill (February 2014). She had bilateral indolent corneal ulcers, which we worked extensively with a veterinary ophthalmologist to help them heal. She is now in a foster home where she is supervised to ensure that her healing remains on track.

Helen is a super sweet bunny who is active and curious. Her adopted family will need prior bunny experience. If you are interested in adopted Helen, you will be rewarded by earning her trust and watching her unfold like a blossom in your family. Helen will not likely be a lap bunny who loves lots of snuggles (many bunnies aren't), but she will express her love and appreciation for you in many, many other ways.

Are you ready to learn the language of Helen's love?

Isabelle was one of hundreds of rabbits allowed to run free on someone's property. While the person meant well, the bunnies were subject to predators, weather (including Indiana winter), illness, fighting with each other, and hunger... not to mention making more rabbits the whole time and new rabbits being dumped by other local residents. When the property owner passed away, a whole lot of bunnies were left with no real caretaker. Neighbors threw out bread from a local sandwich shop as the rabbits' main source of food and by spring of 2015, about 25 rabbits remained.

Isabelle is one of the many bunnies IHRS captured from this group, pregnant and hungry when she came into rescue. Oh Isabelle... she's quite a character! Do you want an athletic rabbit who runs to greet you? Can you bunnyproof like crazy? Isabelle is very vertical and loves to jump up and out to explore. (Her foster home keeps her in an XL dog crate when not home, and puts a sheet clipped over her exercise pen play space to keep her in while she does her running about.) Isabelle will hop on your back if you are bent down in her play area - she uses you as a springboard to get somewhere else up high! She would make a great agility candidate or just a great source of entertainment. :) She enjoys petting and LOVES attention but doesn't always hold still for much of it. We've got her all fixed up from her illnesses and spayed now - Isabelle is clamoring to meet you!

Because Isabelle is high energy and high strung, she will need a calm home that can offer her lots of exercise and patience. She is not recommended around children.

A rescue in Ohio took in 17 rabbits on Thanksgiving from a hoarding situation where the rabbits were living in filthy outdoor wire cages. Handsome Keaton is a young guy who came to us from that group!

Keaton has been in his new foster home for about a month now, and he's acclimated well to a "helpful" toddler, bossy roommate, and a barking dog. He's still a little bit skittish, but has warmed up so much since being here! He's pretty energetic - he runs the Bunny 500 around the rabbit room, and is constantly throwing toys all over the room. He's made himself a pest with the resident bunny, rearranging her pen as *he* sees fit from the outside, but she doesn't mind too much. Keaton would be a great companion for just about anyone!

Mancala, Marla's baby #5, was born Labor Day 2014. She was a Mini-Me of mama - white with gray spots and racing stripe - and had helicopter ears for awhile but now has uppy ears.

Mancala has a fun spirit and likes to play and cause a ruckus. She is ready for adoption with her sister Jenga. The girls are rather shy - they need an understanding home who will let them be bunnies. Mancala is more outgoing and will accept pets. They love to hang out all day and beg for snacks! Are you ready to give these siblings their forever home? They'll do a Bunny 500 every morning for you about 6 a.m. :)

Poor Marla was dumped with over 25 other rabbits in an industrial area of Indianapolis. Animal Care and Control captured about twenty who survived the road and she came to IN HRS rescue when we determined she was pregnant. Marla gave birth on Labor Day, three days after she came to IHRS.

Marla is bonded to her daughter Kerplunk. They are both very shy rabbits.

Can you give Marla the forever home she deserves, where she is valued for her own self and not just one among a warren of neglected rabbits? Marla would like to learn she is a special and loved companion!

Little Nemo was lucky - he and several other rabbits were abandoned after 4H and left to die. Nemo made it and the police brought him to a southern Indiana shelter. When IHRS came to check on the bunnies, our volunteer found he had a crazy curly incisor sticking out of his mouth! Nemo is lucky this was discovered before it grew enough to block his eating; dental issues like this can lead to starvation.

Nemo had his offending tooth removed by an exotic veterinarian. We waited to see if the remaining incisors would line up, but they needed correction. But when Nemo went back for removal of the remaining incisors, the vet discovered he had an abnormal heart. Nemo is awaiting an ultrasound to determine what is going on.

As soon as we know what is ailing Nemo and hopefully fix it, he will be ready for adoption. He is a bit shy but curious about being indoors and pampered. Nemo enjoys living in the main part of the house and begging for treats when everyone walks by!

Hi. I'm Owen. I have a tattoo in my ear that says "Zin," but I don't like that name anymore. It reminds me of my past and since coming to IHRS, I am a new bunny!

I used to be in a tiny cage housed in bad conditions. When I was rescued, I was very sick and wasn't sure if I was going to make it. A team of donors, volunteers and vets rallied to support me and I pulled through! I'm neutered and on the mend, though as I write this, I still have some sniffles that I'm being treated for. I'm also on a special diet to help me continue to get and stay healthy and happy.

I'm very friendly and social. I love to be pet and am VERY interested in you and what you are doing. I'd be good with children (as long as they are careful of my fragile small body). I might even want a female mate some day. I have good litterbox habits and am quite tidy and non-destructive. I'm training to be a free-range bunny some day! Yay!

I'd be good for first-time bunny owners as long as I'm all well when adopted. If not, I might need someone with prior experience to keep a good eye on me and support me.

Can I come home with you?

Hello there!

I'm Phoebe. I've been at hotel IHRS for a while now and I'm starting to figure out who I am. My previous guardians didn't want me anymore, so they let me go in a field behind a restaurant in Mooresville, IN. Even after all that, I have a clean bill of health and feel great! I am a tough cookie, so I survived, but let me tell you it was not easy.

I'm thankful that the IHRS rescued me from the dangers that surrounded me and provided me a warm place to live, good food, keep me healthy and make friends with me. Sometimes, however, I miss the wide-open spaces that I had. I'm independent. I want space ... as much as you can give me! I can take care of myself and I've done it before, but I'm glad that I don't have to anymore. I like attention from my hoomans but I'm still working on trust issues. I don't know if I suffered trauma from my last hoomans or just turned a little wild after being out on my own. I'm still working through that with my therapist, lol.

I'm curious and playful. I also like to climb up on things. I have good litter box habits, but I always want a litter box nearby. A girl should have to go to far to go to the bathroom, you know? Sometimes I like to be pet, but I have to be in the mood. That may change if I get to spend more and more time with you (and give me Oxbow cookies). I'm very cute (and I know it) and I like to make you laugh. I'm not sure if I'll ever be a lap bunny though. And I'm not really sure about bunking with another rabbit. It would take a very special one to be my roommate -- one who won't cramp my style. I'd probably like it better to have my own space.

So what do you think? Do you have what it takes to earn my trust? It might take awhile, but it will be super rewarding when you earn it, I promise you that!

Rubik, Marla's baby #2, was born Labor Day. He is albino and has uppy ears, but when he was a baby the left one flopped!

Rubik grew up fast and has only known the life of a pampered house rabbit, lucky boy. He starts out shy but once he knows you, he loves to come see what people are doing and wants to be petted (and beg for treats!). He also races and jumps, chomps his toys, and stretches out for great naps.

Rubik is quite good with his litterbox and is just waiting for his forever family - and a nice big area to test his binky skills. He might be a good companion for a single girl bunny as well.

IHRS volunteers captured this stray bunny in a wooded Indianapolis neighborhood after neighbors let us know she'd been running free for months. Stay tuned for more on this little girl's personality. She is a bit shy but grateful to be warm and fed. She will be ready for adoption after she heals from her spay.

She likes her kibble, salads and treats. She has good litterbox habits and loves to be around hoomans. She might like a husbun some day but she'd also like to be part of the family.

Tank is a big guy looking for cuddles! He came into rescue from a southern Indiana shelter after he and ten of his friends were confiscated by local police. Tank has had a rough life and has needed a little time to slim down and clean up. He was recently neutered and will soon be ready for adoption.

Tank is a big sweetie who loves pets and enjoys being in the middle of the action - people and dogs around, no problem! He would love a spot in the living room to hang out with you there all the time. Because he is gentle and friendly, he would be a good rabbit for a first time adopter or just anyone who likes big squishy bunnies.

Male
Age: 7 years 2 months
Weight: 6 lbs.

Tilson found his way to IHRS a few years ago, when a good Samaritan alerted us to the fact that he was released to the wild to fend for himself. Our volunteers were able to successfully catch him and bring him to safety.

Tilson has settled into life as a house rabbit, and shows a real appreciation for the finer things: playtime, jingly or rattly toys, phone books to shred, and other bunnies to pester. He loves to jump into the open hay box, and he will also help himself to pellets directly from the pellet bin if his foster mom isn't fast enough!

Tilson has decent litter box habits, though with all of the other bunnies around it's a constant battle to remark territory. He seems very likely to want a friend, but he would also appreciate having a home to himself given enough attention :) Tilson has struggled with an ongoing URI and while he feels fine, he will need an adopter willing to deal with his illness as it is only controlled, not able to be cured so far.

Can you give Tilson the home he's looking for?
