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.
For questions and situations related to wild rabbits (babies or adults), contact CLAWS at (919) 619-0776, Wildlife Welfare at (919) 387-1662, or see trianglerehab.org.
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.

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!
