Adopting a new friend...
Rabbits that make there way to Hops and Lops Tennessee Rabbit Rescue come from all different walks of life. We work mostly with kill shelters that have rabbits that are on death row, but we do have rabbits that come from owner surrenders, are found as strays, or just simply left at vet clinics. With all rabbits that come into the rescue, we test them with strangers, kids (young and old), other rabbits, and other pets. We try to see what they will tolerate and what they will not. Most of these findings are listed on each rabbit's adoption profile, but if you have any questions about a rabbit's behavior please feel free to ask. At the time of the inquiry, HLTRR will disclose all this information, but please understand that these are rescue rabbits, not all is known about their history or how they will react in a new home. With all adoptions Hops and Lops requires an adoption form, home visit, reference check, and adoption contract. All forms are for the safety of the rabbits up for adoption, not to cover our rescue or the adoptee.
Our normal adoption fee is $125 for female rabbits and $100 for male rabbits, this fee covers spay/neuter, all current wormings, current flea prevention, and any other medical care the rabbit had received in the care of HLTRR. The can and will vary rabbit to rabbit! These fees are payed directly to our vet, the fee is just to cover the spay/neuter. We ask nothing more in fees from the adoptee when adopting a rabbit from HLTRR. Rabbits that have been spayed/neutered before coming to Hops and Lops TN Rabbit Rescue, and rabbits that have been sponsered, have a reduced fee to cover all medical care HLTRR has provided for them. The fee for already spayed/neutered rabbits will depend on the medical care they recieve when at HLTRR. A rabbit that has a reduced or waived adoption fee will have a note at the bottom of their adopton profile.
