Welcome to Special Bunny!

Our Mission: Special Bunny serves house rabbits and the people who love them through rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming and sanctuary. We promote compassion, community and proper care, with a focus on elderly and special-needs bunnies.

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 on our Special Bunny Rescue Facebook Page. Use the navigation on the left to dive into detailed information about our shelter, our bunnies, advice, resources, and much much more!

An ode to Thora and her human, Julie Pheasant-Albright. Julie generously donated the printing costs for our amazing Bunnies Behaving Badly calendar in honor of Thora, which means 100% of the purchase price goes directly to the care of our animals. Julie discovered Thora being ignored in a hutch in a neighbor's back yard. So she did what came naturally: she delivered snacks, water, and attention. Julie convinced the neighbor to let her take Thora home, and from then on it was a perfect match of bunny-and-human. Thora took over ownership of all of Julie's things and spaces, and in return Julie delivered daily organic veggie feasts, massages, pets, and worship. Thora rewarded Julie by gently nibbling her toes and happily disapproving of everything (while also enjoying everything). Like some other bunnies we've had the honor of knowing, Thora loved her life and her human so much that she stayed long after her body started betraying her. Sheer stubbornness (and a huge amount of dedicated care) kept her here so she could supervise Julie long after many other bunnies' bodies would have quit. Never underestimate the powerful mix of adoration, disapproval, stubbornness, and loving superiority that only bunnies (and especially Dutchie bunnies) can provide. They are a force of nature.As Julie says: "My little love. If love and extraordinary vet care and dedication could have kept her she would have lived forever. I have never loved another being as much as I loved her. Despite the fact that she ripped out every one of my toe hairs." Please join us in thanking Julie and admiring Ms. Thora.Purchase the calendar (and a tote bag with a Dutchie like Thora on it!) at www.specialbunny.org/calendar. ... See MoreSee Less

Feeny has packed, labeled, and shipped the first batch of our Bunnies Behaving Badly 2022 calendar! You’ll be glad to see she misbehaved while doing so. You better order yours so she can get busy on the next batch. Flip through to see how Feens has changed since we rescued her in 2015. Your support (and all profits from our calendar) helps us help bunnies like Feeny Wobbles (and her HusBun Bocce Ball). Order here: www.specialbunny.org/calendar ... See MoreSee Less
