Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions we receive about rabbits.

What do I do if I find an injured wild rabbit?

For any issue related to wild rabbits, please contact either the Nevada Department of Wildlife or contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.

Can my rabbit live in a hutch outside?

No! Rabbits are social animals and want to be inside with you. Besides that, the temperatures here fluctuate too much for a rabbit to be safely housed outside. They will also not be safe from predators outside in a hutch.

Are rabbits good “starter” pets?

No. Rabbits are complex beings who require a lot of space to run and specialized medical care. They are prey animals and do not like to be picked up, which is why they are not good pets for small children.
