Description: The Rabbit Haven rescues abandoned rabbits and guinea pigs and accepts surrendered rabbits and guinea pigs from the general public and shelters in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, San Benito and Monterey Counties. We then work to place these rescued animals into loving foster homes, secure medical care including needed spay neuter, and then place them into permanent homes. The Rabbit Haven works in the community, at schools, with shelters, and other education groups to educate the public on animal care, feeding, grooming, medical needs, social dynamics and behaviors.
