Richmond rabbits hop to new homes
on October 22, 2012
The House Rabbit Society is a no-kill shelter in Richmond. They save rabbits from around the area from being euthanized. When you walk in, it neither smells like a shelter, nor looks like one. With carpeted floors and bright open enclosures, it looks more like a rabbit hotel. Which it sometimes is. The House Rabbit Society also boards rabbits for families who need their pet taken care of while they are away.
All animals brought to the HRS are spayed and neutered, and given frequent medical care. They are fed fresh food from the community garden out back, and are socialized by volunteers and the few employees the HRS has. If you are looking to adopt or want to volunteer go to http://rabbit.org/rabbit-center/.
