  • Sure you want one? They (their poop) smell really bad. Anyways, maybe somebody is giving one away on Craigslist.

  • I would check Craigs list and also see if there is a Freecycle group in your area.

  • Check out pet finders there is a rabbit rescue in Northern Va and they have their rabbits listed on the petfinders site

  • Petharbor/ petfinders/ craigslist/ your local paper are always good places to start, you can also try your local animal shelter. Believe it or not they often get other animals besides cats and dogs.

  • Make sure before you get the rabbit that you have the money, the space, the time, the energy and patience for a rabbit. You can't just live them in their cages all the time. They need exercise, they need to have time spent with them.

    Rabbits can also get impacted teeth if you don't provide them with something to gnaw on.

    Pets for Christmas presents are generally a bad idea. When they cease to be cute and cuddly anymore the shelters get to deal with them.

  • check your local shelters as well. Many take in other animals aside from dogs and cats. I was visiting my local shelter today to get information and take pictures for a project I am working on and there were 2 gerbals and 6 rabbits. But like Asid Pets as Christmas presents are not always a good idea many animals adopted as a Christmas present get returned pretty quickly. Many Shelters will not even adopt out around Christmas for this reason.
