Our rabbitry is small because we focus on QUALITY over quantity
. We tend to limit the number of litters at any given time in order to have the opportunity to handle each bunny daily. We can be sure they are healthy and being fed the best feed/hay we can offer. 


How Shepherds Purse Rabbitry Came About

Our love of rabbits started when we acquired a mini rex named Molly.

Our daughter, Lily, had done mounds of research before we committed to our new bunny. 

Our Molly had such a big personality that we quickly fell in love.

Our rabbits are part of the family and are exposed to a number of different animals and sounds on our property.

When Lily was learning about bunnies, we found a lot of what we thought about rabbits was false.

Contrary to popular belief, rabbits are much more like cats and dogs than so called “pocket pets.” 

Before we knew it we were joining 4-H clubs and  ARBA.

This led to us putting together our first rabbit trio.

Thus The Shepherds Purse Rabbitry was formed.


Shepherds Purse Rabbitry and Animal Therapy Programs

We are also involved with an animal therapy program that services teens and young adults suffering from depression and anxiety,

Many of our rabbits take a trip to these day programs before they leave us.

This gives them another chance to socialize and be comfortable around people.

Our bunnies have an opportunity to be amazing supports for our human friends.

About the photos on this page: Some of the bunnies in these photos are very young - too young to go to new homes. But they sure are darling!!

Please don't stress over this; our friends at Shepherds Purse Rabbitry will not send their bunnies away to new families until they are old enough.


Our price ranges from 70-150 dollars depending on pedigree status, coloring and breed.

Pedigrees are available for our show lines at request for $25.

Rabbits are sent to their new homes with:

  • Birth certificate
  • Transition food 
  • Hay samples
  • Toy 
  • Care packet 
  • AND your choice of 3 different bumper stickers.
