I've adopted a wolf - more than once, lol - and knew about the other ones (dolphins, whales, owls, otters, etc.), but didn't know the cottontail needed help. there nothing we haven't tried to destroy?

Hmm...there seem to be plenty of bunnies around here, even with all the coyotes. But then, there's also still habitat here.

The past couple years, I can't believe how may little bunnies I've seen.  If I go outside on the deck at night, the flood light from the barn shining, I see them hopping all over the yard.
Cute little buggers.

Dear Members & Friends,




It was probably the worst bunny hoarding situation on record ?1,200 rabbits living in burrows and under trailers in a Reno, Nevada, backyard.


By the time Best Friends intervened, it was an ugly situation with many sick, injured, and pregnant animals. But, allowing all these innocent creatures to be destroyed just because there was no easy solution was not an option for us. And we know it would not have been an option for you, either.

Even after separating them, baby bunnies were still being born at a rate of 40 a day ?almost faster than we could fix their moms and dads! By the time all the mothers had had their babies, the numbers had risen to 1,600.


GOOD HOMES NEEDED NOW:  By now, the rabbits at the Best Friends rescue ranch outside of Reno are very comfortable and happy. They’ve all been spayed or neutered, and more than 1,000 are accounted for in terms of new homes.


Still, there are 550 rabbits still looking for loving homes. The rescue ranch is only a temporary shelter on rented land.


BOTTOM LINE: We have to complete the re-homing operation and leave the rescue ranch in the next few weeks.



a)  Adopt one or two (or more) as house bunnies. They are the most delightful of pets. And they’re easily housetrained with a litter box.

b)  Adopt a group of outdoor bunnies.  Many of the older bunnies grew up out of doors and are not indoor pets. They’re looking for spacious, protected back yards to live in. If you adopt a group of more than ten, you qualify as a Best Friends Rabbit Ranger, and we’ll guide you through the process of setting up a bunny habitat in your backyard. These outdoor rabbits are fluffy and cute and domestic by breed, and they need your love and care. Plus, they’re a joy to have around. Some of them will take a treat from your hand and will come to be your friend. But their first loves will always be each other and the rabbit community that you're making possible for them.


There’s lots more on how to adopt, plus adoption forms and other contact information on the Best Friends Network at


Discover bunny love. It will change your life. And the bunnies will love your for it!


Thanks for caring,

Michael Mountain
Best Friends
