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. Dive into detailed information about our shelter, our bunnies, advice, resources, and much much more!

Check out our latest news, stories, and photos from Instagram right here!

Happy Saturday, bunny lovers! Today, join us in celebrating wonderfully kind local artist Lauren Rudeck and her divine shop @robotvsloth with a like, follow, share or visit! If you're wondering why a rescue would promote #SmallBusinessSaturday, that's easy: Small businesses also are an essential part of any thriving community! This one is dear to us especially. Lauren has supported us and so many nonprofits over the years, hosting fundraisers (remember the wonderful Easter Party?), donating a portion of sales on her incredible art (which includes buns!) and constantly educating about bunnies. The shop also is a sheer delight -- so creative, charming, kid friendly and unique, with stickers, apparel, art (of course!) and great DIY craft kits that make epic gifts. No visit to @pikeplacepublicmarket is complete without a stop, and right now, check out these adorable ornaments that link to nonprofit wishlists, including ours 🥰 Thank you Lauren for your generous support to the community, we love you! (You can shop online too!) #giftideas #ShopLocal #ShopSmallBusiness #art #HoueseRabbit #seattle #SupportArtists #bunny #rabbit #BunniesWorldwide #PetsofInstagram ...

The humans and bunnies of Special Bunny are thankful for our Head Rabbit in Charge, Angie Green. The most bunny-like of any human we've ever met, the supreme bunny-whisperer, the angel of special needs animals, and the founder of Special Bunny Rabbit Rescue. And in case you are wondering, the snuggl-ee pictured is our most bowling-ball-shaped resident, Oreo. On this day of thanks, let's take a minute to comment and let her know how grateful we all are. Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Come help us take care of our rescue animals.
LOVE animals? Bunnies? We have a great job for you.
*Hours: Wed and Friday (firm) approximately 4-5 hours each day. Specific hours are flexible as long as work is finished by 2 pm. We'd love to find someone who can do both days but please contact us even if you can only do one of the days.
*Pay: $18-$20/hour
*The Job: Cleaning cages and enclosures in the main barn and two outbuilding. All have heat and air-conditioning.
*Empty litterboxes into compost cans, clean boxes, and refill with wood pellets and fresh hay. We use Timothy hay, so be sure you are not allergic to it.
*Vacuum the cage areas and mop the floors.
*Replace linens for bunnies who are on towels or fleece, shake dirty towels, and put them in the laundry area
*Dust cages and other areas with a Swiffer. We have a lot of fur and hay dust getting on things.
*Clean and refill water towers, wash food bowls
*If time permits, cut up parsley and lettuce to make salad for the bunnies and store in fridges
*As needed, refill wood pellet supply from one shed to another (requires lifting ~two to six 40lb bags on and off of carts each shift)
*Pet and talk to bunnies as you work!
*Let Angie know if you see anything that needs her attention, like low supplies.
*Work environment: We keep our shelter clean and organized. All of our bunnies are spayed and neutered, so the litterboxes don’t have a strong smell. Cleaning is done three times a week so dirt does not build up. Our bunnies are also vaccinated against the RHDV2 virus. We will ask you to take basic bio-security precautions, including keeping a pair of shoes for use only at our shelter.
Contact: angie@specialbunny.org, we are hiring immediately.

Protected: Penny & Pip! Our adorable SB alumni got their RHDV2 vaccines this week at a local vet, even though they're indoor buns. With active RHDV2 in Washington, everybun should get vaccinated for safety! We'll see many of you today for dose 2 at our final clinic this season -- thanks to everyone for coming and for donating to help us vaccinate others. If your bun still needs vaccinated, call your vet or check our website for a list. ❤️ Repost via Reposter @miss.bunny.penny: RHDV2 vaccination day! It's so important to get your bunnies vaccinated as RHDV2 is a horrific and devastating disease that impacts both wild and house rabbits. Check out @specialbunnyorg for resources and more info! ...

Reservations are now open for our RHDV2 vaccine clinic, June 5 & 18 in Duvall! We expect to fill every spot, so don't delay -- go to http://www.specialbunny.org/vax to get full details, sign up and share!

This will be the U.S. vaccine Medgene, which is a two-dose protocol. If your bun has never been vaccinated, you'll need to reserve a spot on and attend BOTH dates for full protection. (The single-dose vaccine is no longer available.) Please also note that the first date is a Sunday but the second date, June 18, is a Saturday -- to avoid scheduling difficulties around Father's Day.

We are extremely lucky, grateful and thankful that Dr. Joel is able to squeeze this in and expect it to be our last clinic for the summer. (Local vets also carry the vaccine but generally require an exam; see our website for a list.) Thanks also to Safeway in Duvall for allowing the use of your lot so we can help more bunnies -- we highly recommend picking up some salad for your buns while there ❤️

SAVE THE DATES: June 5 & June 18! We're hosting another RHDV2 vaccine clinic, thanks to Dr. Joel Cuthbert & and the good folks at Safeway in Duvall (not that far from Seattle)!

Going forward, our clinics will use the U.S. vaccine, Medgene, which is a two-dose protocol, hence the two dates. If your bun has never been vaccinated, you'll need a shot on BOTH dates for full protection. (The single-dose vaccine is no longer available.)

Stay tuned for all the details and the link to register to guarantee your spot -- and please SHARE to help other bunnies! #Seattle #Bellevue #houserabbit #rhdv2 #IndoorRabbit
