Valerie is a sweet rabbit who is friendly with everyone. She loves being petted. She is a tidy girl who knows how to use a litter box. She is sweet with people, but can be bossy when we try to introduce her to other rabbits and gets excited about being fed.
She is looking for an experienced family because she has a slight head tilt and needs rabbit savvy people who can recognize if she isnt feeling well and care for her if she needs treatment. She will be a great single rabbit to a family with lots of time to be her companion and wants to spoil a middle age rabbit that will appreciate the TLC.
Valerie is one of our lucky rabbits being fostered in the home of a House Rabbit Society volunteer while looking forward to finding a forever home. She may not attend events regularly, so please write us if you are interested in meeting Valerie in person.

1) Fair Oaks Petco, 8840 Madison Ave., (916) 863-7387

RHDV-2 Safety Protocols:
As a safety precaution for people bringing rabbits for nail trims or to find a friend for their rabbit, guests will need to pre-register rabbits to confirm they have received the RHDV-2 vaccination. You only need to pre-register once while the vaccination certificate is valid.
Donations of $10 for nail trims are appreciated!
To pre-register, send an email to NailTrimPre-Reg@allearssac.org. Your email needs to include:
•\tYour rabbit’s name
•\tA legible image of your rabbit’s vaccination certificate
•\tA picture of your rabbit ?
We do not have a shelter to introduce our foster rabbits and our volunteers have limited time to respond to all online inquiries, so the best way to meet one of our rabbits is to attend our next adoption day. Sometimes people bond to a different rabbit in person than the one they choose online.
All rabbits have their own individual personalities, so our goal is to find the best match suited for your environment and lifestyle. Our adoption fee is $75 and all of our rabbits are spayed/neutered and vaccinated for Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV).
Please provide answers to the following questions to hep us determine if one of our rabbits will be a good match for you and your family. We will review your questionnaire and contact you to set up an appointment for a phone or video call.
*Please only complete if you are over the age of 18 and living within the Sacramento area.

Due to the emergence of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV) beginning in 2020, we strongly recommend no outdoor playtime, even when vaccinated. You can find more information about this virus at: https://rabbit.org/rhdv/
You will need to get your home ready before bringing a bunny home. Read more about living with rabbits at allearssac.org or rabbit.org, or buy the House Rabbit Handbook. Bunny-proof your home and protect electrical cords. Decide what to buy in terms of enclosure, exercise pen, or other housing, plus food, litter boxes, toys and other care items. Locate an exotic veterinarian who sees rabbits in your area.
