Adoption Process

Adoption Policies

Home Visits: All home visits will be done on FaceTime or Google Duo.

Children and rabbits: Rabbits are NOT a pet “for” a child.  The adopter and primary caregiver must be over 18 years of age. Children under the age of 12 should be supervised with any pets at all times.  If there are children between the age of 4 and 12 in the home, they must be shown how to correctly interact with rabbits during the home visit video call.

Indoor Housing: Any rabbit adopted from Hay Monsters Rabbit Sanctuary will be housed indoors and sleep every night indoors. Outside time is not suggested, but if you must bring your rabbit outside:  Do so only if supervised, and in areas where no pesticides, fertilizer or other chemicals are used.  Rabbits absolutely should not be allowed in areas where horses, rodents or any other outdoor animals may have access to.  Rabbits should be vaccinated against RHDV2.


Social Requirements: A single rabbit adoption will be allowed only if the the adopter has a rabbit they are looking for a friend for.  If the adopter doesn’t have a rabbit, a pair of bonded rabbits may be the only option.  Some rabbits are not recommended for bonding and will be adopted as singles in certain circumstances.


Returns: If, for any reason, you cannot keep your rabbit(s) adopted from Hay Monsters Rabbit Sanctuary, the rabbit(s) shall be returned to us. Adoption fees WILL NOT be refunded, and we may reserve the right to deny any adoption applications thereafter.  If you have bonded the rabbit with another, both must be surrendered together.


Adoption Fees: HMRS adoption fees are considered non-refundable, tax deductible donations. These donations help recover the extensive vet bills associated with spay and neuter surgeries, vaccinations, deworming, and the daily care for the rabbit(s) for as long as they are with us prior to adoption.  These donations also help to ensure we can continue our mission or rescue and rehabilitation. Adoption minimum donations are as follows:

Adoption Fees

Solo Rabbit: $105

Bonded Pair: $195
