The House Rabbit Society
of Singapore (HRSS) is an all-volunteer, non-profit
organisation dedicated to rabbit welfare and awareness.
A lot of pet animals in Singapore suffer unnecessarily
because of ignorance on part of their owners. Many people
buy pets on impulse and do not fully appreciate the
responsibilities of keeping an animal at home. The problem
is particularly acute for rabbits because people wrongly
assume that they are low-maintenance starter pets.
was established by a group of concerned volunteers to
address this problem. We seek to reduce the number of
unwanted rabbits in Singapore and improve rabbits' lives
HRSS runs a fostering
programme to rescue
and re-home abandoned rabbits. Every rescued rabbit
is spayed or neutered, receives individual care including
toys, medical care, healthy food and treats, and lots
HRSS participates in numerous public events and maintains
this website to educate the general public about rabbit
care and behaviour. Our popular schools'
programme serves to impart the young with the right
attitude in treating and caring for animals.
HRSS has been operating as a registered society since
April 2002. We are also a certified educator for the
American House Rabbit Society. HRSS works closely
with other animal welfare groups in Singapore such as
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA),
Welfare Society and Action
for Singapore Dogs.
