Welcome to Special Bunny!
We are a Seattle-area house rabbit rescue and we have lots of great, healthy bunnies for adoption. We are also experts when it comes to special-needs house rabbits, and we want our website to become a resource for special-needs bunny owners. We care for 60-80 bunnies at our shelter, and we provide permanent sanctuary for bunnies who need specialized care. We are an all-volunteer, registered 501(c)3 organization.

Special Bunny is feeling hopeful.

Prayers up for Myrtle! Today, our tiny warrior is being spayed and having a mass removed and we'd sure welcome your warm thoughts. Take a moment to flip through and you'll be amazed at her *remarkable* recovery since being rescued just late last month! Found on the Everett streets and saved by a caring person, Myrtle was super thin, suffering from E. cunniculi and so dizzy she couldn't stand or groom herself properly. Thanks to our friend Sherry at Everett Animal Shelter, the team at @Bird and Exotic Clinic of Seattle and our supporters and volunteers, we were able get her expert medical care and into a foster family while she heals. It's another great example of how we partner with the community to help save more bunnies. Miraculously sweet and loving after all she's been through, this older gal now races around her room (wobbles and all), flops with abandon and demands snuggles and snacks from everyone. We're so proud of her! Stay strong, little one. You've got this too ❤ ... See MoreSee Less

When a Craigslist poster said they needed to rehome their lionhead bunny ASAP, Angie could tell that he was in trouble. Like many of our rescues do, this fluffy little boy was "calling" to her. A Special Bunny volunteer arrived at the pre-arranged meeting spot, only to be greeted with THREE desperately skinny bunnies who were going to be dumped that day if they didn't go home with our volunteer.
While it was more than we signed up for, we knew all three of these rabbits needed Special Bunny's care and love from Angie. Once they reached our shelter, a closer look confirmed that they were dangerously malnourished — in fact, they were some of the most-starved rabbits Special Bunny has seen in 10 years of rescues.
Within the first 24 hours the two girls ate four large bowls of food. These three sweethearts have a long road ahead, but we're hopeful that we got them in time to save their lives. It will be quite some time before they are ready to find their forever-homes, but we are so glad that we could step up and provide love, care, and rehabilitation to these neglected bunnies.
The girls have been named Feather and Flower. We're still trying to find a name for the boy. Thanks to your continued support, we're able to give rabbits like these a chance to live long, happy lives. ... See MoreSee Less
