Rabbit Rescue & Rehab is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1998 serving the greater NYC area. Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate domestic rabbits in need, and place them into loving indoor homes. We educate the public on proper rabbit care through publications and community outreach, assist shelters and humane societies, and advocate for rabbits by supporting legislation that promotes animal welfare.

Help us raise $5000 to support our rescue efforts and make a difference in the lives of rabbits in need.

Rabbit Rescue & Rehab relies entirely on donations. Your donation goes directly towards life-saving vet treatments, and care essentials like medications, spays/neuters, and food for rescued foster and sanctuary rabbits. 



Rabbits are not toys to fill children’s Easter baskets. A devastating majority of rabbits purchased as Easter gifts die before their first birthday due to improper care, and many others end up in already-overcrowded shelters and foster homes after the excitement wears off and the reality of caring for a living being sets in. 

Rabbits have special care needs and a life expectancy of over 10 years. They require a spacious indoor home and vet care from a rabbit-savvy vet. They are fragile and do not like to be picked up, so are seldom suitable for children and absolutely never appropriate as a “starter pet.”



Rabbit Rescue & Rehab works only with domestic rabbits. For assistance with wild rabbits, contact a specialized wildlife rehabilitator. Follow the links below for New York state contacts and for additional information.
