Humane Society of Utah Encourages Rabbit Adoption on National Rabbit Day, Sept. 23

Murray, Utah – Sept. 23, 2023 – The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) is thrilled to celebrate National Rabbit Day on Sept. 23 by promoting rabbit adoption as a compassionate choice for potential pet owners. This special day is an opportunity to spotlight these gentle and loving creatures and encourage individuals and families to consider adopting a rabbit from their local shelter.

“Rabbits are the third most surrendered and adopted companion animal at HSU, said Juli Ulvestad, Pet Resource Center Director at the Humane Society of Utah. “Often overlooked as pets, rabbits are known for their endearing personalities and affectionate nature. We urge the community to consider adopting a rabbit and provide a loving home to one of these adorable animals.”

The Humane Society of Utah is committed to making rabbit adoption accessible and successful for families. They offer educational resources, adoption support, and information on proper rabbit care to ensure rabbits and their new families have a smooth transition. All adoptable rabbits from HSU come spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. The Preventative Care Clinic in Murray offers these services for community-owned rabbits: Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Vaccinations (RHDV-2), microchipping, and spay/neuter services at an affordable cost. 

To celebrate National Rabbit Day, HSU will waive adoption fees on all adoptable rabbits, provide valuable information about rabbit care, and adopters can make free take-home goody bags while supplies last. 

For those interested in adopting a rabbit or learning more about responsible rabbit care, please visit the Humane Society of Utah’s website or in person at 4242 South 300 West in Murray.
