I have adopted two rabbits from Rabbit Wranglers in the last year (Ralphie and Toby). Prior to adopting these adorable buns, I was often in close contact with Alyssa (one of the owners) regarding Rabbit Wranglers' other services. I would often bring my buns over to her home and she would cut their nails with ease, clean their scent glands for me, help me with a difficult bunny bond and so much more. When I decided I wanted to adopt from Rabbit Wranglers, Alyssa was so wonderful and took so much time to help me find the perfect bond-mate for my first bunny, Annie. She set up so many speed dates for her with a ton of foster buns until we found the perfect match. Afterward, she was always in close contact to make sure that the partnership was going well. When I reached out to her again telling her I wanted to adopt another bun, she immediately took the time out of her day to personally call me to help me find yet another perfect bun. I could go on and on in this review but I just feel so passionate about Rabbit Wranglers and everything they do. Would recommend them to anyone.
We couldn't have gotten through our girls EC and head tilt issues without Rabbit Wranglers. Both Alyssa and Suaz have been wonderfully patient and educational. One reason we do not consider leaving Pittsburgh is because we'd have to give up this amazing resource. Bunnies of Pittsburgh are so lucky for these two and all of the wonderful volunteers and foster families with Rabbit Wranglers.
Rabbit Wranglers is a great source of information for bunny parents.
I took over the nursing of a feral domestic rabbit that had been hit by a car and dumped at my vet's. When I ran into a tricky nursing situation (due to the rabbit's broken front leg, general trauma, and run-off from feeding critical care, the fur beneath her neck sloughed off and the area was red, weepy, and irritated) I looked everywhere I could to find a solution to heal the area. I contacted Rabbit Wranglers through Facebook and they actually called me and gave me some suggestions. I don't even live in the same state!! They kept in touch until the crisis was over. I'll never forget their kindness to me and to Trooper, who recovered from her injuries (and gave birth shortly after her accident!!). Here are her before and after pictures. She continues to live with me and will always have a safe home here.
Rabbit Wranglers serves a special, neglected portion of homeless animals. They took in 3 very neglected, injured rabbits for us, and got them the care they desperately needed. Please support Rabbit Wranglers!
Rabbit Wranglers save the life of my Flemish Giant,Spooky,who was dying from the effects of E.C. and (I believe) arthritis.
They got him to a vet (twice,and got me meds to continue treating him at home!
Rabbit Wranglers was started in 2003, to assist shelters in learning and caring for the third most adopted companion animal. Funded from a personal bank account, hundreds of rabbits were helped and local shelters were spared the financial investment. In 2010, the decision was made, urged by volunteers and future donors to apply as a federal charity. With this designation, we were able to recruit more volunteers to be able to implement the programs we had started: training shelter/veterinary hospital employees and their educational facilities; training adoption counselors with best practices; providing educational and adoption off-sites at shelters and pet stores; trapping released domestic rabbits; and offering palliative care of homeless rabbits. We've expanded to include palliative care for owned rabbits and even added new services after listening to the needs of the community by providing boarding and grooming services with rabbit-savvy and compassionate volunteers as well as coordinating social and friend-raising interactions with rabbit-minded individuals. Since it's designation, Rabbit Wranglers has not only helped the long- and short-eared furry ones and their companions, but it's operated as a successful, thriving business. I am honored to be a part of this organization because of its volunteers, donors, clients and the communities it serves. In 2003, I knew an organization like this would be helpful, but now, it's a necessity, and a recognized community partner.
I am Suaz Forsythe, a founding board member and proud partner at Rabbit Wranglers.
Having bunnies in our home is fun and challenging. The help and advice and counsel from the wonderful folks at Rabbit Wranglers always reassures and provides direction. I cannot think of a more dedicated and focused organization whose mission to help and nurture these loving creatures never falters. I just admire them so much.
Rabbit Wranglers is an organization with a unique foundation and operating mode: love. As one who has and loves bunnies, Suaz and Alyssa (the gentle hearts at the core of RW) provide advice, guidance, consolation and awareness regarding these most gentle of nature's creatures. They have talked us and walked us through problems and crises, giving time and effort to help and provide assurance. I am quite fortunate to know these giving and dedicated people.
Rabbit Wranglers plays such an important part in the rabbit community in our area. Helping shelters and owners with medical or behavioral rabbits and educating the public about proper rabbit care are just some of the things that make this organization so great.
Need to board your rabbit while you are away? Rabbit Wranglers provides this service, so you don't have to worry if a bunny emergency comes up. Access to vets experienced with bunnies is available.
Wonderful organization run by fantastic, caring people. Always available to help night or day when a rabbit is in need.
September 2016 we adopted from Rabbit Wranglers! We were excited but nervous potential first-time rabbit owners. Alyssa was fantastic. She took the time to match a few rabbits with our 3 kids, 1 dog family. We did a meet and greet and found the perfect match! Lila has been such a joy. Being first-timers, I've had a lot of questions since adopting Lila. Alyssa is always so kind (and quick) to answer and guide us in providing the best care for our bunny.
