New Rabbit Supply Checklist

Congratulations on adopting your new family member! Take a moment to make sure you have all the necessities—your bunny will thank you for it! (Most items are available at the spcaLA Marketplace)

  • Rabbit food (pellets—typically 1/8 cup per 5 lbs of bunny, daily)
  • Timothy Hay (bunnies need an unlimited supply)
  • Fresh veggies (a few daily, like romaine lettuce, NEVER iceberg!)
  • Food & water bowls (heavy bowls—rabbits need an unlimited supply of fresh water)
  • Litter boxes (medium-sized cat litter box) & rabbit-safe litter (like yesterday’s News)
  • Carrier
  • Roomy cage/hutch/bunny house (where your rabbit’s litter box, water and food will be kept—to be used indoors only!)
  • Toys (made specifically for bunnies or hard plastic baby toys, like baby keys)
  • Clean towels & blankets (for your bunny to lounge on in her house)
  • Bunny-proofed room in your house
  • Grooming supplies
  • Hand vacuum/dustpan
  • At least one book about rabbit care, like The House Rabbit Handbook by Marniell Harriman
  • Plan for veterinary care
