Who is Alabama Rabbit Rescue?
We are Alabama Rabbit Rescue, an all volunteer, nonprofit rabbit rescue organization serving the Birmingham area and beyond. We are a chapter of the House Rabbit Society (HRS) in Alabama. While we currently foster rabbits in private homes, we hope to obtain a rabbit center in the near future where people are comfortable volunteering and visiting bunnies available for adoption.
Our Primary Goals
Our main goals are: 1) to rescue abused, abandoned or neglected rabbits and those at risk of euthanasia in animal shelters; 2) to find safe, permanent homes for these rabbits: and, 3) to educate the public by providing credible rabbit care information through publication, phone consultation, and classes.
Rabbits are intelligent, social animals that require mental stimulation, toys, exercise, environmental activity, and social interaction with people, other rabbits, and/or other household companion animals. All rabbits are valuable as individuals, regardless of breed, purity, temperament, state of health, or relationship to humans. It is in the best interest of domestic rabbits to be neutered or spayed, to live in human housing, and to be treated for illnesses by veterinarians.
To rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home abused, abandoned, and neglected domestic rabbits. To spay, neuter, foster, and find domesticated rabbits great homes. To educate the public on the proper care of domestic house rabbits.
Our vision is to change society’s view of rabbits as companion animals through example and education . We seek to become a rabbit rescue organization that finds the best quality homes for the most rabbits possible and provides the best services, support, and products to all our members, donors, and providers.
We value rabbits as companion animals that share our homes and our lives. They are intelligent, social, and emotional beings that need companionship, stability, understanding, and love. We do not discriminate against color, temperament, health, or age and seek to find the best possible solution for their continued well-being, adapting our own lifestyles to accommodate their needs when necessary.
Our staff and volunteers value integrity, accountability, dependability, compassion, and teamwork. These qualities are necessary so that we can continue our mission to save as many rabbits as possible.
The duties and responsibilities of our board members require integrity, accountability, fiduciary responsibility, teamwork, and transparency in order to act in the best interest of Alabama Rabbit Rescue and ensure its sustainability in the years to come.
We value the support of the rabbit community, our donors, supporters, and volunteers - their passion for expanding the rights of rabbits, their enthusiasm for enlightening the public of the proper care and needs of rabbits, and their drive to change the way that society views rabbits.
We value our adopters, who provide loving and supportive safe, permanent homes to our adopted bunnies.
