We've been getting lots of questions lately about wild baby bunnies. If you, or your dog, finds a nest of wild baby bunnies here's what to do:
FAQ: Orphaned Baby Rabbits
The best thing you can do is put the bunny right back where you found him, in the general area, as the mom will only come back at night to call and find him. Leave the area. If the bunny is injured, please contact a wildlife rehabilitator or rabbit vet immediately.

Thank you for considering adoption! There are many rabbits in our area who are looking for their forever homes.
Visit our Adopt and Care sections to learn about the specific needs of a rabbit. Rabbits can live for more than 10 years, and have different needs than other animals, so you want to be sure a rabbit is right for you.
When you are ready for a rabbit, we can help you find the right friend!
Our rescue and education efforts depend on the generosity of supporters like you!
Donations are used for rabbit care, providing food, bedding, and hay to foster homes and animal shelters; medical care, assisting with funding for spay/neuter surgeries for shelter rabbits in need; adoption events, helping bunnies find permanent homes; and humane education, teaching people about rabbit care and promoting pet adoption in our community.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
Local film maker Kim Best has made a wonderful mini-documentary about rabbits, rabbit care, and adoption. She came and filmed at our annual Rabbit Day event, and also went to visit our friends at Avian and Exotic Animal Care. The video features interviews with volunteers from Triangle Rabbits, Dance with the Bunnies Rabbit Rescue, and Dr. Dan Johnson. Check it out!

Have you thought about volunteering with the bunnies in our community? We are recruiting Bunny Butlers to help with the rabbit foster program at AniMall. After a short training, volunteers will sign up for days to come supervise bunny playtime, bring fresh salad, and do light cleaning. Weekday help is especially needed. Meet in the training room at AniMall Pet Adoption and Outreach Center, 1105 Walnut Street, Cary.
Come join us for a morning at the Midtown Farmers Market. We will get breakfast and enjoy browsing the market. They have fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, soaps, crafts, and live music. Meet in the common area in front of the movie theater. Canceled in case of rain.
