The Missouri House Rabbit Society

Rescuing rabbits since 1994

Established in 1994, the MOHRS is committed to rescuing domesticated house rabbits and educating the public to their proper care. Since our formation, we have rescued over 2000 bunnies in the Kansas City Metropolitan area.

The MOHRS is an all volunteer, non profit, no kill animal rescue. Not only are we committed to the health and wellbeing of every rabbit we take in, but 100% of the donations we receive go towards our mission of rescue and the care of our rescued rabbits! Read more about our mission, the services we offer and ways you can get involved.

Our Mission

The Mission that began over 20 years ago is still continuing to this day. Our goal is to save as many rabbits as we can and adopt them out as INDOOR pet companions. We also strive to educate the public on the proper care, needs and expectations involved with having a pet rabbit, and what the rabbits requirements are of his or her human caretakers. When most people see a rabbit, they think of a cage with a rabbit sitting inside, or a rabbit in a backyard hutch. We want our community to think outside the cage. Domestic rabbit’s are social and thrive in an indoor environment where they are loved, cared for, and where their minds are stimulated daily.

The Reality of Rescue

Unfortunately, there are times when the rabbits we rescue are unable to be adopted, due to health or behavioral reasons. These special rabbits are considered ‘sanctuary rabbits’ and they will live out the rest of their life with a Missouri House Rabbit Society volunteer . Currently, the Missouri House Rabbit Society is providing sanctuary for over 30 rabbits. We can have anywhere between 12 to 50 rabbits in foster care at any given time.

Donations we receive help cover medical costs for both sanctuary and foster rabbits. Donations also help provide quality food, hay, fresh vegetables and salads, and toys for our rabbits, which are essential in providing mental stimulation.

As you can imagine, the cost for caring for so many rabbits adds up quickly and often exceeds our resources. That is why we need your help. With your tax deductible donation (MOHRS is a 501c3 organization) , you CAN make a difference. Your donation WILL make a difference.

Whether you are looking for a bunny to love or advice about the care of a bunny you have, the MOHRS is here to help! From adoptable bunnies, or bonding advice to information about rabbit care and our monthly meetings, the MOHRS tries to offer something for every bunny lover. Below is a list of some of our services. If you are looking for help that you don’t see listed, please feel free to contact us.

Please be aware that the MOHRS concentrates efforts on rescuing rabbits that face euthanesia in other area shelters, therefore we do not accept owner surrendered rabbits. We do however have some advice for those looking to rehome their rabbit safely and responsibly. For our article about rehoming, please click here.
