MISSION STATEMENT

RABBITWISE is an all volunteer, non-profit 501c3 public charities organization  whose primary client is the domestic rabbit. Our mission is: to PREVENT irresponsible acquisition and care of companion rabbits; to improve RETENTION rates of rabbits already living in homes in order to avoid them being relinquished or abandoned; to EDUCATE persons who live with, shelter, and/or treat rabbits to give them the best care possible; and to ADVOCATE for the broader welfare of rabbits in general.

RABBITWISE'S PURPOSE

By providing easy access to local and internet rabbit resources, public education, consultation and referral services, RABBITWISE hopes to assist current and potential rabbit caretakers in making responsible decisions about rabbits, in giving high quality care to rabbits, and in understanding the nature, behavior, and communication styles of rabbits.

By participating in community and nation wide animal welfare organizations' programs, by mounting public relations campaigns where appropriate, and by offering community programs for rabbits, RabbitWise hopes to raise public and private consciousness about rabbits to help them achieve the status that dogs and cats currently enjoy.

RABBITWISE's GOALS

RABBITWISE is primarily concerned with promoting the welfare and increasing the quality of life of an individual, group, and/or class of domestic rabbits by:

-offering educational, consulting, coordination, and/or support services to potential and current rabbit guardians;

-offering educational, consulting, coordination, and/or support services to the rescue, shelter, veterinary, and advocacy communities; and by

-advocating publically and privately for humane treatment of rabbits locally and nationwide.

RabbitWise is a non-profit organization, 501( c )(3) public charity, founded in 2003, comprised of rabbit-knowledgeable volunteers in consultation with professionals and organizations in animal welfare and animal rights related fields to advocate for the improved welfare and legal status of the domestic rabbit.

Most, but not all, of RabbitWise's volunteers are rabbit guardians who have also been educators of rabbit care and behavior, volunteers, and/or members of the board of directors of other rabbit welfare and rescue organizations.

RabbitWise's sponsors are people from all walks of life who believe that domestic rabbits, as the most popular companion animal after dogs and cats, should be afford the same legal status and standards of care that are afforded to other companion animals. Sponsorship in RabbitWise helps to advance education to prospective and current rabbit guardians, advance advocacy programs, and enable the creation of new programs.
