MCRS will supply all the equipment you will need:

  • Cage
  • Litterbox

MCRS also covers any medical expenses for foster rabbits. Your only out-of-pocket expense is for the litter, fresh greens & veggies you feed your foster rabbit and even that is a tax-deductible donation!


  • a space in your home for a cage & some play space for the rabbit
  • litter & greens
  • an hour or so daily to provide socialization and care
  • a willingness to learn about the proper care of rabbits.
  • convenient access to email is strongly preferred.
  • Ability to transport rabbit to periodic adoption events is preferred, but not required.


All new foster homes are offered our free Bunny Basics class.  These classes cover a wide-range of bunny related topics and are presented at two locations across the metro area.

Thank you for your interest in adopting a rabbit needing a home! The Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society (MCRS) is a volunteer-based, member-supported non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion rabbits.
