We Are Their Voice
Rabbit Rescue of MN is a 501(c)3 non profit rabbit rescue. Our mission is somewhat different than that of many other rescues as we take in sick, abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted domestic rabbits, as well as rabbits from the public that are no longer wanted. We fundraise in order to get proper vetting and then focus on rehabilitation to ready our rabbits for their furever homes.
We are 100% volunteer-based and have no paid staff. All of our rescue rabbits are cared for in private foster homes where they are properly housed and receive love and socialization. We do not advocate housing our rescue rabbits in pet stores of any kind. Prior to adoption we screen our applicants thoroughly including a background check and a visit to our applicant's home to insure that our rescue rabbits will be properly housed in a well-ventilated, well-lit and space appropriate area. Our mission includes educating first time rabbit families on the proper housing, exercise, diet and medical care.
Our rescue rabbits are all wellness checked, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. We pride ourselves on informing the public that domestic rabbits are “exotic” pets/family members and require very specific care, medical attention and housing, as well as a space in the home where they can be part of the family.

Stephanie and DJ became friends and partners after Stephanie adopted two bunnies from the rescue and decided she wanted to help in any way she could.
Stephanie is now an integral and vital part of our rescue efforts! She does an amazing job balancing her family life with her husband and two amazing young children! Her event planning and administrative skills help to keep the wheels in motion!
Debbie (DJ) started rescuing bunnies after saving her first little man “Duke” from an impound where he was abandoned. She specializes in caring for our medical rescue rabbits and has dedicated a wing in her home as a place to rehabilitate fosters.
She enlists the help of her husband from time to time with the “heavy lifting” and enjoys spending time with her two beautiful daughters and two step sons.
