While endeavoring to keep our adoption process simple & quick, please read ALL of the information provided below to assist the process in moving as smoothly as possible in 3 easy steps!
Before you consider adopting a pet, please make sure you don't have hay or pet allergies
STEP 1: Please email or call our adoption counselor, Amy Mott email@example.com or 615-473-1803 for your adoption appointment. All of our adoption visits are done by appointment only as we do operate out of our homes to keep the animals social and always in contact with human touch. We try to keep our schedules extremely flexible, realizing that you are excited about bringing your new furry friend home. So if we cannot meet you at certain times of the day, we feel that it is an even trade-off that we can meet often times at night, early mornings and on weekends.
STEP 2: The Approval Process! If you are certain you're going to adopt before you visit our shelter, this is your next step (If you prefer to visit us first, skip directly to STEP 3)! All adopters MUST be pre-approved before bringing there bunny home. Pre-approved means:
Bunny's habitat MUST be set up INDOORS ONLY as we do not adopt to
persons who intend to set their rabbit's habitat up outside (unfinished/ non heated or cooled garages are
2. Pictures of the habitat IN ITS ENTIRETY must be sent to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or texted to 615-473-1803.
The pictures should include:
a. the cage or habitat (approved xpen or xl dog crate--no wire bottoms)
b. water bowl & food bowl
c. carpet set up in habitat
f. litter box lined with pelleted pet bedding and filled with grass hay
g. food pellets
All of the above should be SET UP and ready for
your new furry friend. Pictures of the supplies lying hodge podge or
stacked on top of each other is not acceptable and will delay your
adoption process as we cannot determine or assess your set up unless it
is completely ready for your bunny.
All pre-approved habitats are subject to inspection "in person" by a
member of our staff if we feel the above requirements are not met.
We do offer home delivery of your furry friend & set up assistance
if you are in Williamson County or Davidson County. Due to the rising
cost of fuel and the fact that many of our adopters are out-of-towners and/or from out of state, we currently do not travel outside of these counties for
delivery or set up unless prior arrangements have been made.
Step 3: Visit our shelter! Many of our adopters choose to visit our shelter BEFORE they get pre-approved and that's absolutely fine! Choosing your forever pet can take time and requires careful thought. If you choose to visit us first, we can also offer one-on-one adoption counseling of the pre-approval process!
Please note: If you visit our shelter before you become pre-approved, you cannot take your desired pet with you that day. We WILL place a "hold" on your desired pet for up to 2 weeks, though, while you become pre-approved.
**ONLINE CONTRACT MUST BE FILLED OUT VIA LAPTOP OR DESKTOP COMPUTER -- ANY CONTRACT FILLED OUT WITH A SMARTPHONE, IPAD, IPHONE, TABLET, ETC. IS NOT SUPPORTED AND CANNOT BE RECEIVED WITH OUR SYSTEM**
$85.00 Per Rabbit Adoption
*Based on single adoption*
**Adoption discounts given on multiple/bonded/senior animal adoptions**
We feel these fees are extremely fair since it only slightly offsets the cost of the spay/neuter & daily care of the rabbit(s). Our adoption fee(s) are non-negotiable as we apply every fee to the spay/neuter & care of another rabbit that will be coming into our shelter. True, you can BUY a rabbit at most feed stores/pet stores for around $10-$20, but you will have to incur the cost of spay/neuter and medical check-ups that are required to keep your rabbit healthy and alive which will cost much more than $85/$120. Essentially, we've taken the worry out of the process! Plus when you ADOPT a shelter rabbit, you have saved 2 lives! The life of the rabbit you adopt and the life of the rabbit that will take his place in our shelter!
