Important News

Rabbit Haven is currently CLOSED to new admissions until we can set up new foster sites.
The Rabbit Haven has been inundated with  large numbers of rabbits  the past few months,  especially those from our shelter systems.  The  intake of such a large number of rescues, limited foster space,  coupled with lowered adoptions at shows,  and heavy rabbit dumping in our communities  has resulted in overflows in most of our foster sites.  We have been setting up new foster sites and need even more to  reopen to carry out our services and maintain quality care.  We need to open at least 10  more foster sites before we can  open our doors once again.  This is a heartbreaking decision to have to make and I am hopeful that a few of you will step forward to help Rabbit Haven create much needed space.
   Will  you help the  little  rabbits by opening your home and heart to even one bunny?    Please help make the holidays happy days for the bunnies too.    Just think, your foster bunny can have their special Thanksgiving with you.  They will surely be thankful to you for your kindness, and share in your family activity of warmth and love.
 Sadly, The Rabbit Haven is unable to  accept new rescues from private parties, wait list returns or even rabbits requiring rescue from shelters  at this time as we literally have no more space.   I am asking each one of you to consider fostering to help the rabbits who need our help.
 Or,  if you are fostering,  you can help  by extending your foster time frame a bit longer to give us time to find a place to house the foster rabbit.  This continuance will help us make it through to continue to save rabbit lives, provide good quality of care and adoption services.  
If you want to foster with the  Rabbit Haven,  please call right away.  831 600-7479   We have both Marchiaro  housing units and X pens for foster families and full set up packs. We have all the supply you will need and will provide support. We have  babies, Dutch bunnies, lops,  Rex, all types, colors and  sizes.  Please help today.
It hurts to need to close our services to shelter rabbits,   especially now when they need us the most.  We are entering November and mid November is another heavy dumping season.    In addition, we are the only rabbit  rescue serving  the  Santa Cruz shelter system and  the  San Jose shelter!   We have already had to decline services to the shelter and also had to decline helping other non profits rabbit rescue groups  that  we  can  usually assist. 
 These are  very difficult times for the rabbits.  Please help us to help them. Please Call 831 600-7479 or Email to let me know when you can start.   director@therabbithaven.org 
Mid week set up available.  Training avail mid week or at adoptions shows.   Let me know if you can help.
