Working Together To Make A Difference In Their World
Our Sanctuary is situated in the Northwest region of fabulous Las Vegas near the historic Tule Springs Ranch at the Floyd Lamb Park. There you will find a wonderful group called Bunnies Matter who are doing great work for our community.
For your convenience, we have included the information listed on their Frequently Asked Questions page:
Is Bunnies Matter a rescue?
Yes, Bunnies Matter currently rescues but also works with other bunny rescues in Las Vegas to help the dumped bunnies of Las Vegas. We are currently finding homes for the few remaining of the original 65 dumped bunnies at Floyd Lamb Park after working with Michele Fiore and the City of Las Vegas Parks Division to rescue them. We also do adoption events every Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM at Floyd Lamb Park. We educate prospective bunny owners as well as our local government representatives that can help change the spay and neuter laws in our City and State.
We also help to get the word out via the media and we assist animal control in policing so that feed stores and pet stores don’t sell unfixed bunnies.
How is Bunnies Matter helping?
First, we are trying to help educate the public through local public events, social media, local news sources and internet magazines. Currently, there are many bunny heroes or wanna-be bunny heroes, organized and unorganized, trying to help these dumpsite bunnies throughout Las Vegas. We are trying to assist others already helping in any way we can. When we came on the scene, there were no viable, established bunny rescues in Las Vegas that are really doing anything to help these dumpsite bunnies. Since most of these bunnies were on State property, “legally” no one could help them (All rescued in 2018!!!). Most rescues in Vegas are filled to the brim with bunnies and looking for donations to care for the bunnies they currently have. Unfortunately, just a few bunnies, not fixed, is a huge liability for any rescue to take on without additional donations. We have been very successful in trying to change the old and outdated laws and ordinances that do not help the over-population of dogs, cats, bunnies, ferrets, or pot-bellied pigs. We just got word on October 15, 2019, that Henderson is going to be joining Clark County and the City of Las Vegas by including rabbits to have to be spay and neutered before sold or adopted out.
Do we sell bunnies?
Bunnies Matter does not sell bunnies. We do help others find forever homes for bunnies and we do have some bunnies that can be adopted for an $80 donation (or more) to Bunnies Matter. Please see our adoptions page.

What supplies do I need to own bunnies?
As a new bunny owner, you need to have a good bunny supply list. One of the first things new bunny owners don’t realize is that bunnies require a lot of stuff and a lot of space. Setting up a proper bunny habitat can be expensive but also a lot of fun too! Below is our “must have” bunny supply list that you can use.
Also, please see our list of rabbit savvy vets in Las Vegas.
