Awww thank you for rescuing him! This is likely an abandoned little guy who was thrown out by someone who did not want him anymore. You won't find the owner. :(

I hope you can keep him because he clearly loves you and trusts you already! Do you know how long it usually take for a bun to hop on your lap?!



Let me try to help you... can you keep the bunny/adopt him? Or does he need to go to a rescue?shelter?

Even if you can not keep him he does have some immediate needs - diet is critical - while you look for a rescue to take him to. To find a rescue look here http://wabbitwiki.com/wiki/Category:United_States . Also just google "rabbit rescue XYZ location".

​

Please refer a bunny care guide I keep here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Z_IvDuy5Fr-VOKwBVBSmZih0m1ATCIquIMhYyFl4aIw. I really tried to include all the info a new bunny parent might want into this guide... please do take a look as it will help a ton!

​

Diet:

This is an immediate need also and super important to have proper diet...

The proper diet for an adult bunny is - UNLIMITED hay, 1/4 cup MAX of plain pellets per day (not colorful bits or seed in them), 1 to 2 cups of green leafy veggies. Carrot, kale, and fruit only as occasional very small treats. No yogurt drops or processed sugars, seeds or nuts.

Hay and pellets should not be alfalfa. But hay is 90% of their diet - it keeps the GI system healthy and

Also provide water in bowl (not bottle) and always bottle or filtered, never tap due to calcium content.

________________

Go to the store and get some - timothy hay, some pelleted food - if you can find this one great, if not get another one just be sure it is plain (no colorful bits) and is not alfalfa (look at ingredients), and by some green veggies - romaine lettuce and some fresh herbs to start are good.

Feed 1/4 pellets per day, 1 to 2 cups of veggies, and unlimited timothy hay.

​

Housing and litter training: check out the housing section of my guide.

Keep in mind also that bunnies are crepuscular - meaning most active at night and early mornings as prey animals, so they are quite active often when humans sleep... so you want a bigger space than a cage for him even at night. Bunnies do need 4 by 4 ft of space at least at all times to be happy. :)

Get ether a puppy xpen like this (40 inches tall is best) or an XXL dog crate like this. Also, in the same store by a thick plastic tablecloth or a couple yoga mats and couple of cheap fleece blankets. You will lay the plastic/ rubber down in bunny room. On top spread a blanket. Then set the xpen on tops and anchor the edges outside the xpen. Now you have a safe space for him that is a good size and your floor is bunny proof until he is litter trained.

In the same store by a larger plastic cat litter box (just any plastic litter box like this) and Carefresh type of litter type of litter. This + hay is all you need to begin to litter train him. Set up the tray for him like in this video.

Lastly use any cardboard box you have to cut out one side and place into his xpen upside down to make a hidy house.

​

Vet:

You should take him to a RABBIT SAVVY exotic animals specialist to get checked out.... need to make sure he is healthy, and also he needs to get neutered - it is critical for litter training, forming a solid trust bond with him and future health. Really please don't skip this - it is the best investment you can make into his life!

Here you can find a list of rabbit savvy vets by state:

Also you can google rabbit rescues in your area and often they will have good bunny vet listings right on their website since they get asked a lot.

Some things to do and not to do:

  1. Bunnies don't like to be picked up or held at all as prey animals! They are not cuddly lap animals, though they will come to you for pets once they trust you but it will take time and effort to build trust. Bunnies are very fragile and picking them incorrectly of chasing them will result in serious injury.

    1. To build a bond with your bunny you need to spend time on the floor at her level and always allow you to come to you when she feels safe, never chasing or picking up.
    2. Please avoid picking up and holding the bunny unless you must like for a vet trip.
    3. Do not chase him. Always let him come to you when he wants to on his own terms when he feels safe... If you chase him and pick him up he will develop very negative associations with you. He will think every time you are close he will get sprung into the air and chased and he will mostly hide and avoid you. You don't want that. :)
    4. Give him a hidy house - even a cardboard house and never chase him if he goes in there - this his safe spot.
    5. Also a stuffed animal cuddle buddy will help a lot!
