Check neighboring states as well, if you are willing to drive the distance in order to acquire the rabbit(s) of your choice.


3) Check our Rabbit Classifieds page.

Our Rabbit Classifieds page includes 30-day temporary listings of rabbits for sale and rabbits wanted. Check the page frequently as it is well-trafficked, and the listings may change quickly!


4) Use the Search Bar Function on Raising-Rabbits

On the Raising-Rabbits website, the Google search function is found very near the top of the right hand column. It says, "Search Raising-Rabbits." Enter your search term into the white bar just below and hit the gray "search" button. For example, if you're looking for English Lop rabbits, enter "English Lop," and hit "Search." 

The search will return a page on which are listed all the times English Lops are mentioned on Raising-Rabbits. Because we are partnered with Google, Google gives you lots of options all over the web first. But keep scrolling down and you'll "get to the good stuff," our website results. This will include breeders and/or owners advertising English Lops on the Raising-Rabbits website. You'll see a small picture with each result and our name. This will hopefully help you find the rabbits for sale you are looking for. Try it!


5) Check on Social Media Platforms

Bunnies have discovered social media and they are everywhere! Raising-Rabbits is particularly active on Facebook at:

Additionally, use search terms in your favorite social media platforms, terms such as rabbits in your state, and breed of your choice, to find rabbit owners and breeders with the rabbits you are hoping to find.


6) Look for a rabbit at your local feed store, pet shop, or livestock show.

Even if they have no rabbits at the time, they might have a lead on a reputable rabbit breeder in your town.

Suzi Scribbles, roving reporter, wrote an exclusive article in the September 2022 issue of Rabbit Rhythms about a local junior livestock show. Children from Kindergarten to High School age were auctioning off livestock that they had raised and cared for. Find out about the remarkable kids who will be feeding America and what membership with 4H or FFA can do for your child.


7) Attend an ARBA, or BRC (or other officially sponsored) rabbit show.

ARBA-sanctioned shows occur throughout the year in every state and even internationally. You are sure to find a breeder of your desired breed, OR someone who knows where you can find your desired breed of rabbit.


8) Check your local animal shelter for available rabbits.

Rabbits may be available at a local shelter. When looking to adopt from a shelter, ask lots of questions such as:

  • Who runs the shelter?
  • Why is the rabbit here?
  • Does the rabbit have any health or behavioral issues I should be aware of before purchasing?

If you find a shelter with a LOT of rabbits -- PLEASE ask questions.  It could be the rabbits were voluntarily surrendered. But it might happen that those rabbits were illegally 'rescued,' meaning stolen under the color or pretense of law.

There is a dark underbelly to the 'rabbit rescue' industry. See 200 Rabbits, a shocking example of the lengths radical extremist animal rights groups have been known to go in order to put rabbit owners or breeders out of business.

If your local shelter has a no-kill policy, be extra careful. The problem isn't the 'no kill' philosophy, by itself. The problem is an unwillingness to euthanize a sick rabbit for which there is no hope of recovery. Such a rabbit should not be forced to live in prolonged suffering or sold to people who won't be able to care for it. Some sneezing rabbits do fall into this category. Be wise - avoid any rabbit with moisture around the nose, as well as any rabbit housed in proximity to sneezing rabbits. 


9) Search the National Rabbit Club in Your Country.

In the United States, Canada, and Japan, the national rabbit club is the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA). ARBA has an ARBA Breeders listing which includes a great number of member breeders. Listings include the state where the breeder lives, contact information, and the breeds each breeder raises. Additionally, many states in the US have statewide rabbit breeder associations. The info can all be found on the ARBA website, linked above, AND on our All Rabbit Breeds page. See #10 below.

In the United Kingdom: The BRC maintains a Breeder Directory on their website. If the breed you are searching for is not represented, you can at least contact the organization for further guidance.

In Australia: Australian National Rabbit Council

In New Zealand: New Zealand Rabbit Council


10) Search for a national breed club website for the rabbit breed you want.

Nearly every breed recognized by the ARBA has a national rabbit breed club. Our All Rabbit Breeds page contains links to these breed clubs, if we could find the information.  Many of these breed websites also include a breeders listing, including location of breeders by state.

12) Search the Internet.

Use Duck Duck Go or another search engine to search for the type of rabbit you're looking for (include your location in your search term), or use Craigslist, for example.

(Regrettably, some animal activists in some areas have nothing better to do with their time than haunt the Craigslist rabbits for sale postings and flag them all for take-down. We're not sure when Craigslist is going to wake up to this abuse of their service, but until then, that's why we maintain listings of rabbits for sale in your state.)

13) You could even try the old-fashioned way...

Ask around! 
Word-of-mouth may yield some good information. Check your newspaper's classified ads section, or the Pennysaver or similar classified circular.
