We are based in Wellington New Zealand and as such only adopt rabbits to families and homes in that area.

To ensure we find the perfect match, our team works closely with all adopting families to help them prepare for the wonderful journey of living with rabbits. Rabbits are happiest when living with other rabbits.

It is our policy that we only adopt rabbits out in desexed pairs of one male, and one female.

We do not recommend same-sex pairings as these are often volatile and can result in fighting.

If your family has an existing rabbit, our team helps to find the right match and will then facilitate the bonding/mixing process.

Adoption Criteria

Our minimum housing requirements are:

  • 2×3 metres in length and width
  • at least 1.5 metres in height.

Any outdoor space must be secure from predators, and provide adequate shelter from all weather conditions.

Outdoor rabbits must have access to an indoor option such as your house, shed or garage in the event of unsafe weather conditions. We recommend rabbits come inside at night to spend time with the family.

If you have an existing lonely rabbit, they must be desexed and up-to-date with their Filivac vaccinations before we will introduce them to a WRR bunny.

Our adoption fee helps to cover the cost of a rabbit’s journey through WRR. All rabbits are desexed, microchipped and vaccinated with filavac.

A single rabbit: $100
A bonded pair: $180

Adoption Process

To view all buns available for adoption, or to contact the team, please check out our Facebook page.

You will be contacted by a member of the WRR team to discuss your individual needs, at which point we will organise a time to visit your home. No rabbit will enter your property until your adoption request has been approved.

All adoptions begin with a 2-week trial to ensure the fit is right for your family. The adoption fee is not required until after this trial period is complete.

If at any time you are unable to care for your rabbit or need to rehome it due to unforeseen circumstances, you must return the rabbit to the charity.

We do not list all of our animals for adoption, but if you feel ready to welcome a rabbit into your family, please get in touch to start the conversation.
