Rue, American rabbit
Rue is an adorable female American rabbit in the care of San Diego House Rabbit Society.
Rue loves children, dogs or cats. She's been vaccinated and spayed.
Rue's current caretakers say:
She's a good-natured, easy-going girl who was surrendered to rescue because her family felt like she wasn't getting the attention she deserves. She lived her life in an outdoor hutch and rarely got out to run. She's now in a foster home where she's getting all the love and exercise she craves.

Jasper, New Zealand rabbit
Jasper is a handsome male New Zealand rabbit in the care of San Diego House Rabbit Society.
Jasper is a social butterfly — he loves dogs. He's already neutered and vaccinated.
Here's what Jasper "tells" his friends at San Diego House Rabbit Society:
I'm one of the 452 rabbits rescued from a hoarding situation in Texas. A barn is not a fun place to be when its crowded with way too many rabbits and not enough food or water. I can be sweet and outgoing and would love lots of space in a home to explore and hop around. I am also very food-motivated and will always get excited over fresh veggies and pellets!

Oreo, English spot rabbit
Oreo is a female English spot rabbit being kept at San Diego House Rabbit Society.
Oreo is patient, and she plays well with children. She is already spayed and vaccinated.
From Oreo's current caretaker:
Oreo is what we call a people bunny. She loves meeting new friends and will run past her food to get a head rub. She's small for an English Spot, so is likely mixed with a smaller breed, which makes her even cuter! She does well with kids who respect her needs and interact with her on the floor.

Carmella, mini rex rabbit
Carmella is a charming female mini rex rabbit in the care of San Diego House Rabbit Society.
She has been vaccinated and spayed.
Notes from Carmella's caretakers:
Carmella is a cute, skittish rabbit that will need a home with a lot of patience and understanding to help her feel comfortable and safe. She came from a home with barely any socialization and was kept outdoors before arriving to the shelter. Because of this, Carmella spends most of her time hiding and needs a family or bunny friend to build a trusting relationship with to feel comfortable in a new home.

Valerie, Florida white rabbit
Valerie is a sweet female Florida white rabbit currently housed at San Diego House Rabbit Society.
Valerie would do great in a home children — she loves being around people. Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she is spayed.
From Valerie's current caretaker:
Valerie is such an attention hog. She runs to people for head rubs and then melts into the ground and closes her eyes. We think she's quite a character! Pink-eyed bunnies are often overlooked, but are some of the sweetest buns and often make great bonding companions.

Romeo, lionhead rabbit
Romeo is a handsome male lionhead rabbit currently housed at San Diego House Rabbit Society.
Romeo does great with children — he's a real "people pet." He's already vaccinated and neutered.
Romeo's current caretakers say:
Who can resist this cutie? Romeo is a beautiful lionhead mix with the mane and skirt to prove it! He's a romantic who would love to sit and watch the sunset with his forever family while getting lots of petting. He does need a little extra brushing to make sure his fur doesn't get tangled, but Romeo's dashing good looks are worth it.

Nutmeg, American rabbit
Nutmeg is a female American rabbit staying at San Diego House Rabbit Society.
Nutmeg is already spayed.
From Nutmeg's current caretaker:
Nutmeg is a spicy, confident girl who came to us from a Warner Springs hoarding rescue. She is learning to trust humans, but would do best in a bunny-experienced home. She likes being petted and spoiled, but will box at you if she feels crowded or if her pen is too small.
