WHO WE ARE: Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group is an all-volunteer organization based on Long Island, New York. Our mission is to rescue abused, neglected or abandoned rabbits; have them medically treated and spayed/neutered; and place them in loving, indoor homes. We educate the public on the special care and health needs of domestic rabbits, and are sustained by your donations.
ADOPTING A FRIEND: Our adoption procedure includes a phone interview, home visit, and any necessary education of potential adopters. There is an adoption fee to help defray the cost of veterinary care and spay/neuter of the bunnies we find homes for. For more information about adoptions, please email or call us.
COME VISIT US: We don't have a physical shelter building. The rabbits are fostered in our homes. If you are interested in any particular bunny (or bunnies), we can make arrangements for you to meet them. If you would like a companion for a bunny you already have, we can arrange for several "meetings" and a bonding session to ensure your bunny will be happy with his/her new mate!

KINGSTON was brought to safety at LIRRG by the power of social media. In August 2015, reports of a stray rabbit in Suffolk county went locally viral. After searching for a foster home, one of our long-time rescue partners was able to catch this rabbit and bring him to safety.
The average Dutch rabbit weighs 4.5 pounds; Kingston weighs over 8 pounds — double-Dutch!?!? His unique size and his bright blue eyes make him stand out as a true rarity. He is estimated to be about five yhealthy, neutered and looking for a forever family who will treasure his unique look and love his spirited personality!
ALEXANDER'S FUND: With your donation, you can help provide rescued bunnies like Alexander needed medical care so they can have a second chance at life—or a chance for a dignified, pain-free and comfortable life until it is their time to pass over the Bridge. Read Alexander's story.
