About Us

The Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society (MCRS) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion rabbits. MCRS works to let people know that domestic rabbits can and do make wonderful companions, as long as you are willing to meet them on their terms. We teach Bunny Basics classes, maintain a phone and email hotline so that people can contact us with questions or problems, and generally try to keep rabbits and their human companions living happily together.

In addition, we have a small number of fosters who work with the local shelter systems to help lower their euthanasia rates and raise their adoption rates. Our fostering efforts focus primarily on rabbits who are relatively healthy but are not well-suited to the shelter environment due to personality or temperament. In addition, we do occasionally help the shelters with a rabbit who is ill when we believe that the additional time and expertise that we can offer the rabbit may make the critical difference in saving that rabbit’s life.

Our Mission:
  • Education: To reduce the number of unwanted rabbits and to improve the lives of companion rabbits by educating the public and assisting humane societies.
  • Adoption: To help rabbits in area shelters, or those that shelters can no longer care for, to find permanent homes.


Our Vision:

To create and support a community of knowledgeable rabbit companions in Minnesota, thereby eliminating the need to euthanize adoptable rabbits.


Our Values:

MCRS believes that every rabbit deserves a chance at life and finding the right forever home. We strive to give every rabbit an enriched life and in doing so promote the very special human/rabbit bond. We seek to mend and cultivate the behavioral, medical, social, mental, and emotional needs of the rabbits in our care. Only in the rare cases when a bunny’s quality of life has severely diminished, with little or no chance for improvement, will we seek a veterinarian’s humane assistance to spare the bunny unnecessary pain and suffering. The cost of medical care shall not be a factor in this decision.
