Adopt a rescue rabbit monthThere’s no better place to find adorable adoptable rabbits than our very own Gainesville Rabbit Rescue!


Gainesville Rabbit Rescue is a non -profit, tax exempt organization founded in 1998 by two University of Florida students.    They are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and adopting out rabbits and guinea pigs that have been abused or abandoned and educating current and potential rabbit owners.


Gainesville Rabbit Rescue is run solely by volunteers and with 100+ rabbits currently in their care, and more on an ever-growing waiting list, they always are in need of assistance.    They are a small rescue, with limited space,  so those rabbits that are in the most critical conditions are given priority, however, they will not turn away any rabbit in need.     Which is why it is so important that they always have plenty of dedicated and caring volunteers.

While there are many blog posts on this subject, most of the ones I saw were geared toward education.   Since February is also the month we celebrate Valentine’s Day and love, I wanted to write this blog post to share ways responsible pet owners can celebrate and show their pets some extra love in the process!

I hope you find these tips helpful and maybe informative all in one! [Read more…]
