If you find a wild rabbit that needs help or what appears to be some abandoned baby rabbits, please contact the following organizations. Many times people see the babies and think they are abandoned. Before you disturb the nest please consider the fact that wild rabbits only nurse for a few minutes at night and moms vanish the rest of the day. If you still feel the babies are in danger, contact a wildlife care center.

|Low Cost Spay and Neuter
Spaying or neutering your bunny is important for many reasons. First, it will prevent the birth of more bunnies – which there is such and overabundance one to which we certainly do not need to contribute. Second, it is important for health reasons. Female rabbits who are not spayed are most certainly going to get cancer. The third reason is it keeps the males from spraying and marking their territory. It also helps the females with their moody hormonal cycles.
Many people are realizing that spaying or neutering your pet bunny is a priority and we have received many requests for information on low-cost clinics. Below is a list of low-cost clinics where you can get your bunny fixed.
