Adoption Procedures

All adoptions are done at our adoption events, held on Saturdays from 11 to 3 at the My Pet Market at Tatum & Shea in Phoenix. The address is 10810 N Tatum Blvd., Phoenix, AZ 85028. Complete information about our adoption events, including locations, times, directions, and maps will be provided upon completion of an adoption questionnaire and initial phone screening.

Should you be approved for adoption, you will be required to sign a BHRR Adoption Contract and provide a copy of your driver’s license. We do not consider out-of-state adoptions. We apologize for this policy but it is in the best interest of the rabbits in our care.

BHRR DOES NOT DO SAME DAY OR WALK-IN ADOPTIONS.

It is the policy of Brambley Hedge Rabbit Rescue to not do “same-day” or “walk-in” adoptions. We believe it is critically important that all potential adopters (especially first-time adopters) invest sufficient time to research rabbits as companion pets, complete the online questionnaire in its entirety, as well as the multiple-level screening process. We are diligent with these procedures to ensure that your potential adoption of a rabbit is the right thing to do for you and your family as well as the rabbit(s).

If you are considering applying to adopt one or more of our rabbits, please note it is required that you complete the online questionnaire first and foremost. The questionnaire is specifically designed to help us determine any modifications you may need to make prior to a possible adoption, to assess your expectation of sharing your home with a rabbit, and to match you to the rabbit best suited to your family’s needs. Of course, you are welcome to come to an adoption event to assess your potential for allergies (rabbits and their hay tend to cause severe allergic reactions in many people – especially children) and to talk to our adoption counselors. Should the visit go well, you are then encouraged to complete the online questionnaire in its entirety and will be contacted by an adoption counselor once the questionnaire is complete and submitted. Please allow 72 hours for an initial response.

Please note that if you have completed the online questionnaire and have NOT had your preliminary screening, but you still would like to attend our adoption event, do not expect to adopt a rabbit that day. Our screening process is a rigorous one including the online questionnaire, initial screening (via phone), follow up screenings (via email), a possible home check prior to any adoption being considered, in-person screening at the adoption event and, if approved, signing of a BHRR Adoption Contract.

PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT guarantee any adoption to any individual and reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any individual at any time for any reason. We are tasked with caring for these rabbits who have all come from abuse, neglect, or abandonment situations, and as a result, we are committed to ensuring each BHRR bunny be placed in the best possible home.

You will need to confirm with us that you will be coming to an adoption event. Please call our hopline at 480.443.3990 AT LEAST 48 hours prior to the provided adoption date to confirm your attendance. Because of space limitations at the adoption site, we will bring only the rabbits we believe are best suited for your family and/or have been specifically requested in advance.

The adoption fee is $80 for single rabbits, $145 for pairs or multiples. We accept payment in the form of cash or personal checks with picture ID or credit card payments via PayPal.

You must be 18 years of age or older to sign a Brambley Hedge Adoption Contract for any of our rabbits.

If you have any questions about our adoption procedures, don’t hesitate to contact us.
