Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (also known as RHD) is a highly contagious disease found in rabbits that is spreading across the U.S. Almost every rabbit that contracts RHD will die. Because of this, every rabbit that we rescue is first quarantined as a foster for two weeks.
The disease spreads outdoors, so this is one of the many reasons that any rabbit we adopt out needs to be kept as an indoor pet.
