Help a Bunny,

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 Application 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.
House Rabbit Society of Missouri is happy to announce that all rabbits adopted from us will have their RHDV2 vaccine.
Missouri was approved by the state veterinarian to receive the vaccine and we are extremely grateful that our bunnies can be vaccinated and protected before the virus hits our state. All 100+ rabbits available for adoption at our rescue will have received both doses by November 13, 2021.
Beginning March 1, 2022 all bunnies coming into the shelter for boarding, bonding, or nail/fur trims will need to be vaccinated(with both doses).
Locally, the vaccine is available at Hope Animal Hospital in Fenton, Creve Couer Animal Hospital in West County, and Four Paws Animal Hospital in O'Fallon.
For more, please see our page on RHDV2.
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.

Bunnies of the Week
Orange Crush(male, orange) and Violet (F) are a cute bonded pair of bunnies. They love being petted and are easy to handle. They love to run and play with each other and will need a large pen. Orange Crush is the more outgoing one of the pair and Violet can be protective of her boy bun, though not in an aggressive manner. They are litterbox trained and altered. Please give this sweet pair a chance at a forever home.

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.
