How Long Do Rabbits Live?

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 Augy E. Cotter, Ed.D., LVT from the House Rabbit Society.

In this Month's video, learn how long rabbits live.


12 Things You Didn't Know About Rabbits

Did you learn something new with the video above on how long rabbits can live? Check out this cute infographic that was created for Easter for some more interesting things you may have not known about rabbits.

We've renamed Cassie to June. So we now have a Billy and June. They are doing so well together, it took a couple days but now they love to be right next to each other. We bought two new big litter boxes but they prefer to lay in them together :)


ValentinoThings are going really well with Mathias. We re-named him Valentino to keep with our holiday theme (Pumpkin (orange lion head) was adopted from the Humane Society October 2014 and Shamrock (black lion lop) from MCRS March 2015).

Valentino is one of the sweetest bunnies ever! Pumpkin and Shamrock have been free roam in a good chunk of our main floor for the past year, so we started out by housing Valentino in an xpen in our bedroom until we learned more about his litter box habits and chewing tendencies. We learned he only chews when he's penned and frustrated. After a few days we got rid of the xpen and let him have the run of our whole bedroom. We eventually moved him to a smaller spare room but after determining that he seemed depressed and lonely and less social when we'd go to see him, we decided to flip flop his space with Pumpkin and Shamrock. Currently Valentino has free roam of most of our main floor...for now.

We are working on bonding the trio. We actually did a 72 hour marathon session with a lot of progress but we needed more time to solidify. We've been doing a lot of mini sessions until I have another three days to commit to another marathon. In the meantime, Valentino is loving the living room and he drags his toys everywhere. He binkies and flops all the time! I'm excited for all three bunnies to have the run of the house together. He even tolerates my 9 month old shih tzu (who thinks he's a bunny) quite well.

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.

  supply sales

Did you know that in addition to hay and pellets we have a lot of other great items for sale?



Is your rabbit gnawing at everything but what you want them to? A great option would be the Snak Shak. This gives the rabbit something to chew on to help with their teeth and something that they can destroy. Many of our adoption volunteers recommend these to families when they are getting their new family member!

To purchase supplies from our South Saint Paul location, check our events calendar for the next supply sale!
