Located on the South Bristol pennisula of Mid-coast Maine, Rabbitats for Humanity is a one-of-a-kind labor of love founded and maintained by Quan Myers. Our mission is to educate local pet stores, breeders, shelters, and the public about proper care of these intelligent, complex, and loving animals.
Rabbitats for Humanity was set up to rescue neglected and abandoned domestic rabbits; to provide them with necessary medical care, including spaying and neutering; and to keep old shelter bunnies in safety and comfort for life. Please use this site as a resource to learn more about bunnies and discover different ways that you can help a rabbit have a better life.
A 'rabbitat' is a predator proof enclosure designed as a safe haven for bunnies to be free to run, hop, and play; with a building, (a rabbit hutch) where they can eat, sleep, nest, hide and stay safe from weather conditions. The hutch can be up off the ground, (for when there is too much snow), with a ramp, (that they can climb), filled with fresh hay, water and food.
After being rejected or abused by their previous owners, these bunnies were finally able to enjoy a stable environment and were able to trust a human caretaker again.
