Bunny Boutique Temporarily Closed This Weekend
March 27, 2022
We are giving our volunteers, adopters, and supporters a big heads up on this so you all may plan accordingly: In preparation for our upcoming floor cleaning/waxing, the store will be CLOSED Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3 in order to accommodate clearing out the store. We ask that you plan ahead in purchasing any needed supplies. If you are a volunteer, please make your purchases during your shift at the shelter.
We will be adding a one-time-only curbside pick-up for Friday evening April 1st, 6:00-7:30 pm. Please have your orders in as early as possible for pickup on this date. We will be taking orders for pick up during regular curbside hours on Sunday, April 10 and Sunday, April 24. We will be closed for Easter Sunday on April 17. Thanks for understanding.
Once this is all done we’re looking at opening the store one night a week on a regular basis!

In Memory of Jill Johnson
February 26, 2022
Jill Johnson, a dear friend and supporter of House Rabbit Resource Network, passed away in February 2022.
Jill’s love of rabbits, especially her two buns, Squiry and Blue, was well known to all. In lieu of flowers, the Johnson family has generously requested donations be made to House Rabbit Resource Network in Jill’s honor.
“Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories.”
House Rabbit Resource Network will let the family know of all donations given in honor of Jill, and we would like to thank the Johnson family for their kindness in thinking of our rabbit rescue in their time of sorrow.

Some Changes are Coming to the Bunny Boutique
December 14, 2021
The volunteers that operated the store on Saturday for pickup of online orders are not able to continue being available every weekend. As a result the Bunny Boutique, effective immediately, will not longer be able to provide pickup for online orders on Saturdays.
However, the good news is that we are planning to open the Bunny Boutique one evening a week for in person shopping in 2022. It will likely be on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm until 9:00 pm. More information will follow and will include safety protocols designed to protect our shelter from the bunny virus and protect shoppers and volunteers from COVID.
In addition, the Bunny Boutique will be closed Saturday, December 25, 2021 and Sunday, December 26, 2021, and New Years Day, Saturday, January 1, 2022. The store will be open for pick up orders only on Sunday, December 19, 2021. Please be sure you place your order by Saturday, December 18, 2021 at 2:00 pm.
We appreciate your support of HRRN and the bunnies by purchasing from the Bunny Boutique. We are hoping our reopening will be as successful as our online shopping.
#GivingTuesday with House Rabbit Resource Network
November 29, 2021
This GivingTuesday, House Rabbit Resource Network hopes to raise $10,000, which will go towards supporting our long-stay medical rabbits and their care needs.
The approximate cost per rabbit at our shelter per year is $235. But some rabbits require a little extra TLC—and TLC can get expensive. Here at HRRN, we are proud and extremely grateful to be able to give so many abandoned and neglected rabbits the medical care and rehabilitation they need—so they can get healthy and find that loving forever home each rabbit deserves!
Leading up to November 30, 2021, GivingTueday, we are showcasing some of our long-stay medical bunnies who were medical success stories and have found their forever homes and happily ever afters.

Our GivingTuesday Medical Bunny Showcase!
Each rabbit shown has benefitted from HRRN’s medical fund and has now hopped off to their forever home.

URGENT: Rabbit Hemorrhagic Viral Disease Virus 2 (RHDV2)
April 15, 2020
Important Information Please Read
This is especially important to all rabbit caretakers who let their rabbits outside at any point in time. Rabbit Hemorrhagic Viral Disease is coming our way, the number one way to protect your rabbit-family members is to keep them inside 24/7. RHDV2 is HIGHLY contagious, and invisible, you will not know when your area has been infected and you will not be able to keep it out of your yard, so be safe instead of sorry.
We know that dealing with ANOTHER highly infectious, invisible yet very dangerous threat is the last thing anyone wants to deal with, but we don’t have a choice. RHDV2 has been confirmed in Northeast Texas and its just a matter of time before it reaches our area.
For more information and the latest updates on this deadly disease, see the following page:
Rabbit Hemorrhagic Viral Disease
Special announcement to the general public about visiting the shelter:
House Rabbit Resource Network is not a public shelter. If you are seriously interested in adopting, we ask that you fill out an adoption application here: https://rabbitresource.org/adopt/adoption-procedure/. This guarantees you have time reserved with a volunteer during your visit who can fully answer questions about any of our adoptable rabbits and the adoption process.
We understand that many people are interested in stopping by and browsing our shelter bunnies, but are unsure whether or not they are ready to adopt. Unfortunately, we do not have the volunteer numbers to accompany each person who visits to just browse, and it takes attention away from important tasks needing to be done by those volunteers. So, if you are interested in seeing who is available for adoption, but don’t want to make an appointment just yet, please feel free to take a look at all of our adoptable bunnies on Petfinder here: http://bit.ly/PetfinderRabbitResource. This list is constantly updated with our bunnies who are ready to find their forever homes. If you find one that you are interested in meeting, then please fill out an adoption application and let us know who you’d like to meet.
NOTE: You are welcome to fill out an adoption application without having a specific rabbit in mind. We’ll be happy to help you find the rabbit(s) that are perfect for you and your family.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
House Rabbit Resource Network
A Celebration of Life – Robin’s “Tree of Life” Wellness Fund
In May 2018, 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.
