ADOPTING A FRIEND FOR YOUR RABBIT – BUNNY BONDING SERVICES
Rabbits are social animals that benefit from living in pairs or groups. If you are looking to adopt a friend for your bunny companion, SaveABunny is here to help!
Just like humans, rabbits need to choose their own friends. When you adopt a companion for your rabbit from SaveABunny we encourage you to bring your rabbit to us for introductions. Bonding happens best in “neutral territory” – a space that neither rabbit has claimed as it’s own. SaveABunny can provide this space and bonding expertise.
A volunteer will work with you and your rabbit to find a suitable partner using “speed dating” – short periods of supervised introduction. If the rabbits show a mutual interest, we will house them together here at SaveABunny for a recommended minimum three days. While we do not charge for the bonding services when you adopt a companion rabbit from us, we do require payment for the boarding of your rabbit during the process. Please see our boarding rates here.
Bonding takes time. After their initial bonding stay at SaveABunny, you will be sent home with explicit instructions for how to continue the bonding process when you return home with your rabbits. Following these instructions is crucial to the success of the bond.
If you have questions about the bonding process please call us or send us an email.
