Hi, Cocoa Puff Fans. Welcome to Special Bunny Rescue.

Above: Special Bunny board member Tamara having a moment with Big Cocoa Puff Special Bunny is a house rabbit rescue, rehab, and rehoming shelter in the Seattle area…not far from where Cocoa and his family live. When Cocoa’s people found a stray bunny in their neighborhood, they rescued him, and contacted us for some help [...]


Remembering our dear friend and supporter Patti Polinsky Patti and her husband Dave were friends of our rescue and our board members long before Special Bunny even started. Patti helped us learn so much about house rabbit care and offered a warm and loving home to countless rescue bunnies over the years. She donated her [...]

Holiday Hazards

Keeping your Bunny Safe During Human Celebrations! Cold Weather: Though rabbits can take the cold better than they can the heat, cold, wet and windy weather make it dangerous for an outside bunny, who can get frost bite on his/her ears and even die from exposure. If you don’t have a heated, weather-proof shelter for [...]

Christy & Mitch

Jazzy, now Olaf, and his lovely Sookie

Jazzy came to us from a high-kill shelter, where he went by the name “Penelope” (how embarassing for him!) We have no idea why no one adopted him while he was there…he’s the cutest little black lop, and he’s full of funny, bossy, bunny-y personality! We were told he was a spayed girl when he [...]


Oh, Jimmy, we miss you SO much. Jimmy was found in a chicken coop with his back broken and was being pecked by all the chickens. He was just looking for some food and how he made it this far we don't know. Why someone could throw out a little bunny like this is beyond [...]


Herman came to us when he was 8 years old, with terrible abcesses on his face. He hadn't received the medical care he needed, and the neglect really showed. We immediately got him to the vet and the poor little guy endured some pretty major treatments. For a while, he kinda looked like the Phantom [...]
