Indiana House Rabbit Society

A an all-volunteer organization dedicated to improving the lives of domestic rabbits in the state of Indiana.

Giving Tuesday is just around the corner and represents a GREAT way you can help IHRS continue our mission.

As you consider your end of the year donations, please consider helping us help our four-legged cotton-tailed friends! A small donation of just $5 or $10 can feed a rabbit for a week or more. A donation of $20 can feed a rabbit for a month. A donation of $50 helps cover the majority of the cost of a standard veterinary visit.

You may also consider a sustaining donation to provide your continued support. For a gift of $20/month, you can sponsor a rabbit in foster or sanctuary care. This amount provides food and hay for most rabbits for a month.

Please visit our PayPal donation page chose the amount that is right for you, and thank you!


COVID-19

Due to the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and the stay-at-home order issued in Indiana, the Rabbit Adoption Center is closed. Visitation and in-person adoption consultations are by appointment only.

Our adoption program has resumed! If you're interested in adopting, visit our rabbits for adoption and then complete an adoption questionnaire to move forward.

Take care and stay healthy and well!

Mission Statement

We improve the lives of domestic rabbits through the coordination of local volunteer-driven Education, Rescue, and Adoption efforts in Indiana.

To accomplish this goal:

  • We provide resources to educate the public on the benefits of rabbits as companion animals, rabbit behavior, and rabbit care
     
  • We provide assistance establishing programs with animal control agencies, shelters, humane societies, and sanctuaries to increase their rabbit adoption rates
     
  • After we have exhausted all avenues, provided we have the available resources, we coordinate the rescue of rabbits scheduled for euthanasia and adopt them through our group

In order to maximize the usage of all resources towards the goal of reducing homeless rabbits, Indiana House Rabbit Society does not take owner-surrenders. For help finding a home for your rabbit, see our guidelines for finding a safe home for your rabbit.

Help us continue our work of finding homes for homeless rabbits and educating the public on caring for rabbits. Please consider donating, contributing to our Amazon Wish List, setting Indiana House Rabbit Society as your Amazon Smile charity or set Heartland Rabbit Rescue (organization name for IHRS) as your charity for Kroger Community Rewards card.

Wild Rabbits

Wild rabbits often make their nests in areas that boggle our minds... sometimes even right in the MIDDLE of an open yard. They are "hiding in plain sight" as often the predators that they naturally fear would be too timid to enter those areas. They don't count on the family dog or cat also being a problem!

If you have found wild rabbits or want to find out more, check out our wild rabbits resource.
