Chef is the definition of "quirky". We're pretty sure Chef believes in conspiracy theories and can see the dead. No, really.

He has a perpetual worried expression on his face but that never stops him from having fun. He enjoys running around, exploring everything he can, and digging through packing paper.

He can often be found sitting with all of his paws in a straight line. He is very happy to greet you and will let you pick him up but once you're holding him he gets very nervous and squirms until you put him down. He may even try to leap out of your hands, so for his safety, don't plan on picking him up. He has quite possibly the best set of whiskers in the history of rabbits. His motto is "You can't spell 'mischief' without 'Chef.'"

He has near perfect litter box skills and enjoys cucumber and parsley. He will not eat cilantro, and remains secretive about why not.

He could be an only bunny, but due to his complex character we'd recommend a person with rabbit experience.

Out of the night
When the full moon is bright
Comes the horseman known as Zorro!
This bold renegade
Carves a "Z" with his blade
The "Z" that stands for "Zorro!"

Avast all wrong do-ers! This gentle, young bun offers himself as your loyal guardian.

Part of an unwanted litter, Zorro arrived at the Albuquerque East side shelter at only four or five weeks old, with about twelve brothers and sisters. He was immediately fostered but perhaps finds himself overcompensating and having to act the parent with his siblings.

As a type-A rabbit, he is skeptical to change and will tattle on his brothers and sisters if they're doing something they're not supposed to. It's not uncommon to find Zorro thumping for seemingly no reason - but only when you're not looking. He prefers to stay among the shadows unseen but usually lets his curiosity get the better of him enough to come say "hello."

He loves to chew on cardboard and will work very hard on turning a box into a pile of confetti. He particularly enjoys dandelion greens, cilantro, and collard greens. His litterbox skills get an eight out ten but he's still learning.

This very sweet boy needs a quiet home.

Seeking 'a room with a view'

This is DJ, a mixed breed bunny rabbit and (more importantly) an aspiring New Mexican mountaineer.

Perhaps inspired by the Sandias, this boy is an energetic climber. He'd like to get a really good view.. no, no, a bit higher, yes, right up there.

He will attempt to ascend walls, blinds, his kennel... He will climb up to the window sill, through the blinds, to sit on the window ledge.

He's energetic, curious, and funny. He is very social and absolutely loves getting pet on the head. If you've ever wanted the spirit of a puppy in the body of a rabbit then DJ is what you're looking for.

He's about seven months old right now and has been in foster since early August from the Albuquerque shelter.

He'll be medium sized when adult.

He has good litter box skills which are improving daily. His favourite treats are carrot and cucumber.

Need a little more excitement in your life? This one will keep you busy. Can you offer patient supervision and an assault course of furniture challenges?

  • Palomino
  • Spayed/Neutered
Biscuit is a wonderful, outgoing Palomino female, about 2-3 years old and weighs 7.5 lbs. Known to NMHRS as one the original "Route 66" bunnies, she was spotted as a stray living near I-40 outside Albuquerque and two of our dedicated volunteers managed to catch her during their lunch break!

She's a sweetheart and very "dog-like" - she stands on her hind legs and begs for food and to come out every time she sees her foster mom. Biscuit follows her around, loves to be petted and knows her way back to her pen. Even though she is a slightly larger bunny, she has amazing litter skills and loves her Timothy hay.

She will hop right over to you for love and does not mind being picked up and handled (see our video!). She likes toys with bells in them and loves to toss them around, and likes hay balls to chew. Sometimes this experienced road warrior can be rambunctious and she needs a quiet environment.
