Hoppy Hours

Some rescues will host an event that helps to socialize your bunny and enrich their lives. Groups of seven or more spayed and neutered rabbits are let loose in a large play area with edibles and toys.

General rules

Regardless of location, hoppy hours generally have the same set of rules:

  • Rabbits must be fixed. Rescues vary their required minimum time from neuter or spay from 30 days to 3 months.
  • Bunnies that have any illness cannot participate for the safety of all rabbits. (e.g. infections, mites, fleas, ringworm, snuffles, GI stasis)
  • Only the parents of the bunny and volunteer bunny bouncers may pick up or hold rabbits. However, you can pet any bunny you wish within reach.
  • Bunny parents must be there to supervise their bunny at all times.

Every other weekend at the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley, MN, rabbit owners bring their buns for a little social and play time. Put on by the MN Companion Rabbit Society. Started with just a handful of rabbit 8 years ago today and now gets up to a hundred. All rabbits have been fixed and are in good health. A few designated "bouncers" (in the black shirts) monitor behavior and break up fights and humping. I've been attending for about a year and a half now with my rabbits and still love it. Never gets old :) [1]
