What is a REW?
REW ("red-eyed white" or "ruby-eyed white") rabbits are white rabbits with eyes lacking in pigment. The lack of pigment makes their pupils appear red.

What breed is a REW?
REW refers to any white rabbit with red eyes. Some rabbits may be born as a white rabbit with red eyes just through genetics. There are, however, two breeds of white rabbits commonly raised for meat that appear in the rescue. These are Florida White and New Zealand rabbits. Florida White rabbits can be around 5 lbs but New Zealands can weigh over 10 lbs.

Whats so great about REWs?
REW bunnies are among the smartest rabbit breeds. They can be taught tricks, learn their own name and commands, and are very fast learners. In addition to their shining personalities, REWs also do not get the same ear and dental issues that are common in fancy rabbit breeds. If that wasnt enough, REWs are also among the cleanest rabbits and are typically very diligent with their litter box habits.

If they are so great, then why are there so many REW bunnies in the rescue?
There are a few reasons. REWs are often raised as food and are either dumped as strays by people who didnt realize how much work it was or can escape captivity. Another reason is because REWs also remain in the rescue longer since they are perceived to be not as "cute" and appealing as other breeds. Despite their glowing personalities, we have had REWs stay in the rescue for several years.
