New Shelter Safety Protocols
We are currently open for bunny supplies during our regular member hours and we are trying to keep everything in stock, but please check our website as things have been rapidly changing during this situation which affects us all.
Immediately use the hands-free hand sanitizer upon entering the front door.
Please do not bring children to the shelter. Older teens are OK, but limit anyone coming with you to the maximum number of people allowed inside.
Only a max of 6 people inside at a time. If you see several cars outside, please check to see when you may come in.
Please get your supplies as quickly as possible and leave so there is no "gathering" and others are able to come in for their bunny supplies.
Please maintain a 6' distance from others. We are trying to utilize this to help keep everyone safe.
Nail trims are by appointment only. You can reach us here to request an appointment during member store hours.
Adoptions and bonding after orientation are also by appointment only.
Until current situations change we are not allowing members to visit the bunnies. We know this is something enjoyable our members like to do, but we must maintain this area for our volunteers who are taking care of the bunnies until the current shelter in place order is lifted.

Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus is a highly infectious and deadly disease affecting ONLY rabbits, (domestic and wild) hares and possibly pikas. It does not affect humans or other animals, but humans and other animals can carry the virus on them if they've unknowingly been in contact with the virus. Click here for more information on the virus.
Volunteers are still needed (even more so) during these trying times. We are taking precautions to keep our volunteers safe and the bunnies still need cleaning, food, and hay. Please let us know if you can help. Adults only at this time.
Please go to our Volunteer Page and mention when you would like to volunteer in the form. Volunteer times are Mondays through Thursday 6pm - 9pm, Tuesday through Thursday 9:30am to 11am, Fridays at 9:30am, 3:30pm, or 7pm, Saturdays between 10am - 4pm, and Sundays between 11am - 4pm.
We're filling up fast for Summer boarding, so please be sure and make your reservations well in advance of your travel dates. Please go to our Bunny Boarding page and fill out a request form. Thank You!
Changes to the adoption process
For viewing adoptable bunnies, having bonding sessions, and even nail trims, please set up an appointment so we don't have a lot of people coming at the same time. Please use this site's contact us page to let us know when you would like to come in. We will respond to your inquiry.
Temporarily we are not allowing people to go in the main bunny room just to look at bunnies. Normally, we love to have you see the bunnies, but we are using as many precautions as possible so that we can keep the Bunny House open for supply trips, orientations, bunny adoptions, etc.
Become a Member
Anyone interested in becoming a member can do so for only $25 per year. The choice of "how" is up to you, just please do it! HRS has a never-ending stream of innocent bunnies that need help. Your memberships are always needed and greatly appreciated! All workers are volunteers, so your membership dues go directly to caring for homeless rabbits. Membership includes free nail trims for bunnies, discounts on hay and more. Thank you in advance for your support!
There will still be supplies made available at Pat Daly's home, but there will be a new method to best keep our volunteers safe. Please text or e-mail Pat to let her know what supplies you need. Those of you on the east side already have her contact info. Wait to hear back from her with what she has available and the price. Make your payment via PayPal on our website. Pat will place your order on her front porch. No orders after 8:30PM.
"I'm Pumpkin. I might pop-up from time to time to give you some bunny insights."
Bunny of the Week
Skittles is a sweet Dutch female. She was returned (through no fault of her own) because her owner went to college. She may work well as a bondmate. Skittles is easy to handle and loves being pet. She would do well with adults and older children. She is spayed and litter box trained. Please come and meet this sweet girl.
Missouri House Rabbit Society is a 501 (c3) all-volunteer, non-profit organization with a dual purpose of rescue and education. Donations are tax deductible.
Utilizing foster homes as well as The Bunny House shelter, volunteers provide appropriate care and socialization opportunities to rabbits so that they may be adopted into loving, permanent, indoor homes. Our educators assist the public, humane societies, and local shelters through publications on rabbit care, phone and e-mail consultations, and classes upon request.
Please note that we are only open to members due to our St. Louis County permit; we are not open to the public for walk-in traffic. Appointments must be made by prospective members for orientations or to view rabbits.
