Rabbit Meadows is a rescue group out of Seattle. As the name suggests, they rescue rabbits, but they also rescue other small animals like ferrets, and other small rodents. They also have a huge vision and mission for their sanctuary! They are undertaking a great project that sounds like it will be beneficial for both the sanctuary rabbits and the people who love them.
Over 1,000 rescued rabbits have roamed the 4.5 acres of Rabbit Meadows Sanctuary since we opened twelve years ago. Our first rescue mission was at a business park in Redmond where we saved 650 feral rabbits from the ultimate fate of the arriving bulldozers. We’ve subsequently rescued feral rabbit populations from Rocky Reach Dam in Wenatchee, Seattle’s Woodland Park, and the Aqua Barn of Kent, insuring each rabbit a safe haven to live out the rest of their life at Rabbit meadows without threat of harm.
Today, Rabbit Meadows shows definite signs of age, wear and tear from weather and badly needs an upgrade. To accommodate the sanctuary rabbits, our adoption center and our compassionate human visitors, Rabbit Meadows plans to build a series of small cottage-like structures among the picturesque fir trees on its grounds. The structures will be small so we don’t disturb the trees or our resident wildlife (raccoons, deer, owls, cottontail rabbits, etc.) who feel comfortable enough to return to Rabbit Meadows each year to raise their young.
If you are in the Seattle area and are looking to add a rabbit or other small animal to your family, be sure to visit the Rabbit Meadows website. They also sell supplies for your pets, the proceeds of which support their rescue efforts.
