Rabbit and Small Animal Rescue was just recently founded in order to provide a structure in which to rescue small animals in the Livonia-Westland-Dearborn-Oak Park areas of metro-Detroit. We are a group of foster homes that takes in animals from all over the metro-Detroit area. We have available for adoption: rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, chinchillas, small birds, and occasionally other animals. We socialize the animals, teaching them to trust people when we can. We sterilize all rabbits and rats before adopting them out and educate adopters of our other animals about the importance of keeping them in same-sex groupings. We then find new homes for the animals, screening and educating all adopters before sending our animals back out into the world.
As of April 16, 2008, we are a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status, which means that all donations* will be tax deductible dating back to 11/6/07.
*Adoption and surrender fees are not considered donations by the IRS, as the donator has received something in return. However, any donation above and beyond the standard adoption or surrender fee is deductible, as are any and all other donations for which no good was received in return.
