Give to the Max Day Report

Give to the max day
Give to the Max Day was held on November 13 this year, and was a record-breaking event. The total for statewide donations was $18 million; that's nearly $1 million more than last year.

Thanks to our generous MCRS supporters, it was a goal-busting day for the bunnies as well! We started the day with a goal of $2500, but within 24 hours had raised a total of $3218 from givemn.org and the MCRS website.

Thanks to everyone that donated, and shared our posts and emails to spread the word!

What Kinds of Toys Do Rabbits Like?

It's no secret to a lot of us that rabbits make wonderful pets, but if you've never had a rabbit before and you are thinking about getting one knowing more about them as pets and what to expect is important. Each month we will be sharing a video that features Actress Amy Sedaris, who is a loving mom to her own pet bunny, and rabbit expert Mary E. Cotter, Ed.D., LVT from the House Rabbit Society.

In this Month's video learn what toys rabbits like.

Foster Homes

The foster program is an essential part of our mission. Without our dedicated foster families we wouldn't be able to help the many rabbits we do each year. Providing a foster home for one of these rabbits can be a very rewarding experience and literally saves a life!


MCRS will supply all the equipment you will need - cage, litterbox, litter, food & hay. MCRS also covers any medical expenses for foster rabbits. Your only out-of-pocket expense is for the fresh greens & veggies you feed your foster rabbit - and even that is a tax-deductible donation!

All you need is:
•a space in your home for a cage & some play space for the rabbit.
•an hour or so daily to provide socialization and care.
•a willingness to learn about the proper care of rabbits.
•convenient access to email is strongly preferred.
•ability to transport rabbit to periodic adoption events is preferred, but not required.

Please contact MCRS at info@mncompanionrabbit.org if you are able to help. Thank you!

Volunteers are not just important to MCRS, they literally are MCRS. Volunteers do everything that needs to be done within the organization from picking up the mail to caring for homeless rabbits to keeping financial records to scooping litter boxes.

Interested in Volunteering? See all of our available volunteer positions on our website.

All media, please contact Shelley Chirhart, MCRS Public Relations & Marketing Manager at info@mncompanionrabbit.org or 651-768-9755.
