WHO WE ARE: Friends of Rabbits (FoR) was founded in 1997 and is a rabbit rescue organization dedicated to finding loving, indoor homes for rabbits in need. We are a nonprofit 501c3 organization based in the Washington DC / Baltimore greater metropolitan area.
WHAT WE DO: Friends of Rabbits rescues, rehabilitates and adopts out more than 200 rabbits each year, and over 80% of all donations go directly to purchasing supplies and veterinary care for our rabbits. When you adopt from us you truly save a life, enabling our volunteers to pull another rabbit in need from local animal control facilities. Our rabbits frequently come from the top of the euthanasia list, often within hours of being put to sleep for lack of space, temperament, and physical imperfections. FoR also works with area shelters to provide rabbit care education and to take in rabbits when the shelters are overloaded.

SERVICES: In addition to the services outlined above, Friends of Rabbits also offers grooming, short and long-term rabbit boarding and sells a variety of essential rabbit supplies Columbia, MD and Arlington, VA.
