A coffee and tea bar will be set up in the Education Center while adoptable cats run the room. There is no fee to participate, but donations are welcome.

All About House Rabbits

Join Bunny Buddies and CAP for an event focused on house rabbit welfare, education, and advocacy.
Visit our education station for a “rabbits 101” tutorial, and discover how having a rabbit in your home can enrich your life.
Create an enrichment toy for one of our foster rabbits — great activity for kids!
Make a $25+ donation to Bunny Buddies and receive a tote bag to fill with free goodies.
Learn how you can help rabbits in need through one of our programs: foster, adopt, or donate to our cause.
Note: Due to ongoing RHDV2 concerns and room capacity limits, we are NOT offering a social pen for rabbits at this event. Healthy rabbits may be brought for nail trimming services (for a $10+ donation).
