River's Wish | Rabbit Rescue & Sanctuary
River's Wish started with a focus on rabbits, and our rabbits are our most plentiful inhabitants. You can read an article about us in the Spokesman Review here.
Our bunny barn
Pete built the 1,800 square foot building specifically for rescued rabbits in 1996. The 'barn' provides heat, air and plenty of light for the bunnies. See pictures here.

The Reno Rabbit Rescue with Best Friends Animal Society
River's Wish responded to a call for help from Best Friend's Animal Society. They had taken in more than 1,000 rabbits from a rescue situation in Reno and desperately needed to place the rabbits in secure, caring settings once they were spayed and neutered. River's Wish was selected to receive 50 rabbits and a grant from Best Friends and immediately set to work preparing their new home. The Reno Rabbits now have happy lives where they have lots of freedom and are well cared for.
