Welcome to Special Bunny!

We are a Seattle-area house rabbit rescue and we have lots of great, healthy bunnies for adoption. We are also experts when it comes to special-needs house rabbits, and we want our website to become a resource for special-needs bunny owners. We care for 60-80 bunnies at our shelter, and we provide permanent sanctuary for bunnies who need specialized care. We are an all-volunteer, registered 501(c)3 organization. 

Enjoy our latest news & updates right here on our home page. Use the navigation on the left to dive into detailed information about our shelter, our bunnies, advice, resources, and much much more!


The auction was a huge success...thank you!

We have a total for our auction! (Alfred fell asleep waiting for it). We kept getting additional donations from folks who couldn't attend in person, and we couldn't be more blown away by all the support you guys give us. Brace yourself...including the anonymous match, corporate matches, ticket sales, the silent auction, and the raise-the-ears donations, you helped us raise $22,448! Every penny will go to the care of the bunnies (and we'll have to buy one box of tissues, to sop up the grateful, happy tears of our volunteers). Thank you, thank you, thank you. And please remember to go back and visit the Rusty Pelican Cafe Mill Creek and the Rusty Pelican Cafe Edmonds for delicious food and to support their business, because they do so much for local rescues (and the food is amazing).

If you missed the auction, make sure you follow us on Facebook so you are among the first to know when we have events. And of course we always welcome donations from anyone, any time. :)


The auction is ... SOLD OUT!

We are officially SOLD OUT! See you lucky ticket holders on October 24 at 5pm at the Rusty Pelican, Mill Creek!

And check out the incredible catalog of auction items that you'll get to bid on!

We are full for X-Mas Boarding

Oh my gosh, so many bunnies! 

We are COMPLETELY full for Christmas boarding this year. We're so sorry if you were planning on boarding with us and didn't get your reservation in already, but we've been swamped with requests and have simply run out of room.

If you are an experienced bunny owner in the area, are sticking around for the holidays, can you foster one of OUR bunnies (a Special Bunny bunny) over the holidays? We'd appreciate it and could possibly make room for one or two more frantic bunny-slaves who are planning to go out of town. If you could help out with a comfy bathroom or can fit an xpen in somewhere for a  please let Angie know. We can probably even arrange transportation of foster buns for you if you are willing to do Sunday thru Sunday.
