Adoption Fees

Adoption fees ensure that our animals go to responsible homes and allow us to provide for the animals in our care. We are in desperate need of funds and even the smallest donation helps.  Our minimum fees/donations are as follow:

Rabbits: $95.00

Bonded Pair of Rabbits: $150

Guinea Pigs:  $45 unspayed/not neutered        $65.00 neutered

Chinchillas:  $75  

Large Hamsters/Gerbils:  $20.00 

Dwarf Hamsters: $15.00

Mice: $5.00

Rats: $45.00  spayed & neutered

Cockateils:  $90.00 single $150.00 bonded pair

Parakeets:  $30.00 each


Discounts: We do not offer discounts, if you can not afford the adoption fee than you probably can not afford the pet.

Adoption Application

Adopting an animal is easy, but we ask that you only fill out if you ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN ADOPTING FROM OUR RESCUE


We have a limited amount of applications and each time one is filled out and you change your mind, you take one away from a serious adopter, this happens with at least 10 applications a month. We also have a limited amount of volunteers that review the applications and reading each application takes valuable time away from our volunteers. 


ALL APPLICATIONS MUST ANSWER EVERY QUESTION WITH SPECIFIC ANSWERS, VAGUE ANSWERS WILL BE AN AUTOMATIC DENIAL OF APPLICATION, AND WE WILL NOT RECONSIDER ANY DENIAL AS OUR VOLUNTEER STAFF HAS LIMITED TIME TO REVIEW YOUR ANSWERS!


PLEASE research the critter that you wish to adopt, our site provides some pet care basics and we don't mind educating you. But purchasing a book and browsing the internet are great ways to find information on the critter of your interest. We require that you do some of the research. This helps both of us in finding the perfect fit for our critters forever homes.


If you are still interested in adoption, you may fill out the application form below,  for any reason it doesn't get submitted, please email us and we will send you our online application. 


We'll review it and get back to you within 48 hours, no phone calls please.  If you have questions email us at: rasa.rescue@gmail.com.  We screen all adopters to ensure that our animals end up in appropriate homes, and therefore cannot guarantee anyone an animal.  However, even if the animal you are interested in is no longer available, we can usually help you find another animal who will fit perfectly into your family.  Our rescue always has animals who are not yet on the internet, and we also have good connections to other rescues.


If you're not sure what animal you want or you have questions about adopting, please email us at rasa.rescue@gmail.com or visit us at Petco for a Meet & Greet.  We'd be happy to discuss the choice with you because our animals are in foster care, we know a great deal about their personalities, which makes matching easier and more successful.

RASA Rescue requires all adopters to sign a contract stating the following:

1. You will provide the animal with an appropriate habitat and a balanced diet as recommended by RASA Rescue.

2. You will provide veterinary care as necessary by a qualified veterinarian.

5. You will take the animal into consideration when making housing choices.

6. You will agree to be responsible for the animal for the rest of his or her life.

7. You will not breed the animal under any circumstances. 

8. You will return the animal to the rescue if it is no longer wanted or you can no longer keep it.

Please check your spam folder if you do not receive a response from us within 48 hours.  We have been getting emails from people that thought we didn't respond to their applications..... and when asked to check their spam folder the responses were there...thank you.

  • By submitting this application, I/we give our permission to Rabbit & Small Animal Rescue to contact any/all personal references listed,  and vets that have seen my/our previous pets, and give them permission to obtain vet records from the vet office on previous pets.

Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible
