SEPA-DE HRS Mission Statement

  • Through our shelter foster program, volunteers rescue abandoned rabbits and find permanent adoptive homes for them.

  • Through education, we seek to reduce the number of unwanted rabbits — and to improve bunnies’ lives — by helping people better understand these often misunderstood companion animals.  We provide education about proper care of pet rabbits and community outreach to groups requesting rabbit information. 

  • We are against any and all exploitation of rabbits.  We neuter/spay all incoming rabbits, obtain any necessary veterinary care, provide proper housing and food, and attend to their social needs.
