Who We Are

The House Rabbit Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization with two primary goals: 1) to rescue rabbits and 2) to educate the public. The Southeastern PA-DE Chapter of the House Rabbit Society is located in Newport, Delaware. Shelter hours are Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please call (302) 683-9009 for more information about any of the shelter's rabbits, for directions or to arrange a visit. Rabbit care information is also available at the national HRS home page at .
We do not take owner-surrendered rabbits unless they were originally adopted from the Southeastern PA-DE HRS shelter. Please work with your local humane agency.

Adopting a friend

If you would like to provide a safe, loving, indoor home, the first step is filling out an adoption application. Email Theresa at or Joyce at to get an adoption application either electronically or by mail.
Each rabbit has been examined by our veterinarian, spayed/neutered, and litterbox trained.
The adoption fee for a single rabbit is $85. Pairs are $140. and trios $180. This includes a chapter membership as well as House Rabbit Handbook. All adoption fees are tax deductible. Adoptions from us are a great deal - if you purchase a rabbit at a pet store or breeder, you'll pay $15 -$50 for a rabbit that is not spayed or neutered. Spay/neuter is the single most important thing you can do for your bunny's lifestyle and health. As a responsible rabbit owner, you will pay $100-$200 for a neuter and $150 to $300 for a spay when you obtain these services outside our shelter. Rescued rabbits not only cost less - you're giving a bunny a second chance!
*****Please note: An advanced appointment and application approval are required for an adoption. After we receive your online application, we will contact you to set up an appointment. We are an all volunteer organization, and we need to be sure we have the volunteers available to help you find the perfect bunny match for you and your family.
