We’re excited to announce that HRRN is participating in Amplify Austin this year on Feb. 28th to Mar. 1st! Now here’s the important part our POWER HOUR is 11am to 12pm on March 1st.
Whichever nonprofit has the highest number of donors during that hour wins an extra $1,000! We won last years power hour and exceeded our total $10,000 goal, we’re hoping to do it again this year!
Here are some rules to the power hour:
- Minimum donation is $5 to count towards the power hour (it used to be $25).
- Our power hour is based on number of individuals donating, not highest dollar amount earned. So, 5 people donating $5 is better then 1 person donating $25.
So share this with your friends, family, coworkers, etc.! We need all the PEOPLE we can get to donate something during this hour. (Unfortunately, scheduled donations do not go towards the number count for the power hour, but if you’re unable to be available during the power hour, scheduling your donation still goes towards our chances of winning matching money overall for the entire 24 hours of Amplify Austin.)
Our goal this year is $10,000 to go towards helping the shelter bunnies at House Rabbit Resource Network. We have an awesome group of supporters so we know we can make this happen, again!

Join us on March 30, 2019 at 8am for the second annual Rabbit Fun Run benefiting the House Rabbit Resource Network in Austin, Texas. Our first fun run was such a success that we have decided to make this an annual event. This is a fun run so feel free to run, sprint, walk, or just hang out under the pavilion at Lake Pflugerville. In addition to the fun run we will have music, sponsors to meet, information on the organization about adopting, volunteering, donating, and plenty more.
The early entry fee is $30 for those ages 13+ and will include a unique run tee at www.rabbitfunrun.com. All ages are welcome and the loop distance is about 2.7 miles. All net proceeds from the run will go directly to help the House Rabbit Resource Network’s efforts in improving the lives of domestic rabbits.
More information on the sponsorships can be found here: Bunny Run 2019_Sponsor Letter & Levels
We want to give a huge THANK YOU to Hannah for choosing to update the exterior landscaping of HRRN for her Girl Scout Golden Award Project. She did an AMAZING job! She also hosted an animal welfare and pet care educational workshop for children in the community, and ran a supply drive for HRRN-which resulted in 78 items for donation. She spent a total of 85 hours on this project, and we say she rocked it! Thank you Hannah for all your hard work for the shelter bunnies!
A Celebration of Life – Robin’s “Tree of Life” Wellness Fund
In May, we lost a long time friend of HRRN, Robin Juhnke. Robin was a tireless supporter of wellness and health for our bunny guests, both as a volunteer and while working at White Rock Animal Hospital.
To honor the life of our friend, an ongoing fund to support the wellness of our bunnies has been established in Robin’s name at HRRN. Thus Robin’s efforts to improve the health of our rabbits will continue to inspire us even though she is no longer with us. You may make your contribution by mailing a check to HRRN, P.O. Box 2381 , Pflugerville, TX 78691 or by donating online. Your donation is tax deductible.
Your $25 donation will provide the following for a new intake shelter bun:
- a microchip
- treatment for ear mites and fleas
- treatment for intestinal parasites and worms
- vaccination against Pasteurella
On Sunday November 2nd 2014, House Rabbit Resource Network announced “The Rojo Fund”, in honor of Rojo who passed October 2nd 2014. His fund is dedicated to paying for medical treatment for abused and injured rabbits.
Our goal was to raise $10,000. With donors at our Christmas Party (12/11/16) we surpassed our goal and have raised $10161.52!
We have already been able to help the following bunnies with their veterinary bills:
$1225 for Saffron – rear leg amputation
$1000 for McCoy – broken ankle
$1300 for Mocha-D – broken rear leg
$1150 for Hazel – teeth and eye problems
$1650 for Kendall – rear leg amputation
$1600 for Yin – broken hip and rear leg amputation
$1050 for Vincent Bun Gogh – infected ear
If you would like to honor Rojo’s life with a contribution to the Rojo Fund please click the image below:
Gone yet not forgotten,
although we are apart,
your spirit lives within us,
forever in our hearts.
This poem holds true for anyone who has lost a bunny or bunnies.
A Tasty Treat that’s GOOD to Eat!

These Papaya Tablets are exclusively formulated for bunnies by HRRN. That means no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives…only the good stuff! We know that happy tummies make happy bunnies, so we worked with vets to formulate the perfect treat to aid digestion.
Like cats, rabbits groom themselves and are subject to hairballs. Unlike cats, though, rabbits do not have a gag reflex and are unable to vomit. The enzymes in Papaya (Papain) and Pineapple (Bromelain) help to breakdown mucus and hairballs. Both are anti-inflammatory and aid in digesting tough fibers.
Each bag is 160 grams (approx. 250 tablets)
INGREDIENTS: 10mg bromelain; 5 mg papain; 20 mg papaya fruit.
Recommended Daily Usage: Feed 2 tablets simultaneously and with food or as directed by your veterinarian. Do not exceed 3 tablets per day.

* Note: Human bite 120 PSI. Average domestic dog about 320 PSI. Many breeds ARE greater though.
Do you have apple trees? You can donate your tree trimmings to the shelter buns if your trees haven’t been treated with pesticides. Bring them to the bunny boutique during store hours.
