WHO WE ARE: Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group is an all-volunteer organization based on Long Island, New York. Our mission is to rescue abused, neglected or abandoned rabbits; have them medically treated and spayed/neutered; and place them in loving, indoor homes. We educate the public on the special care and health needs of domestic rabbits, and are sustained by your donations.
ADOPTING A FRIEND: Our adoption procedure includes a phone interview, home visit, and any necessary education of potential adopters. There is an adoption fee to help defray the cost of veterinary care and spay/neuter of the bunnies we find homes for. For more information about adoptions, please email or call us.
COME VISIT US: We don't have a physical shelter building. The rabbits are fostered in our homes. If you are interested in any particular bunny (or bunnies), we can make arrangements for you to meet them. If you would like a companion for a bunny you already have, we can arrange for several "meetings" and a bonding session to ensure your bunny will be happy with his/her new mate!

RUPERT was rescued with four other bunnies who were abandoned in a wooded preserve in Baldwin Harbor. He was the only male in the bunch! While awaiting their rescue, he looked out for the four little girl bunnies he was abandoned with and his caring nature continues to grow now that he is safe. Rupert loves to flop out and relax. He's an affectionate boy and will make a great addition to a caring family.
OUR WISH LIST: As well as volunteers and monetary donations, we are always in need of supplies to help take care of abandoned rabbits. Details about donations.
