Did You Know That There’s a Rescue Just for Rabbits in Kalamazoo?
A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a particular-looking rabbit outside of my office window. After doing some research, I learned that this rabbit was a domestic breed meant to be a pet. So, I wrote an article asking if anyone had lost a pet rabbit.
He was gorgeous and I wanted to make sure he was found if anyone was missing him.
Within two hours, we had a visitor representing a rescue I had never heard of: Rabbit Angels Rabbit Rescue.
While we weren't able to track down the rabbit that day, his owners were eventually found. So, a happy ending for all.
About Rabbit Angels Rabbit Rescue
Rabbit Angels Rabbit Rescue, or RARR, is a non-profit that focuses on finding homes for domestic rabbits that may be in a dangerous situation or abandoned.
The non-profit began when the founder, Heather, saw a Facebook post from someone trying to sell a rabbit. When there were no takers, the post was updated saying something along the lines of...come get this rabbit or I'm setting it free in the wild. This was in the middle of the winter season.
Domestic rabbits do not have the capability to survive in the wild. Especially in the frigid months. That rabbit, if not for Heather, would have most likely died.
Thankfully, Heather was able to rescue the rabbit and thus a new mission was realized.

As well, rabbits have more needs than a dog or cat all of which should be taken seriously before going forward with adoption. You can see all of the rabbits that are looking for homes and a list of what they'll need in your home here.
