Welcome to Huntington Hoppers Rabbitry. You have likely come across our page because you are looking to adopt a baby bunny from a reputable rabbit breeder in CT.
Before you look at our "Bunnies for Sale" page and see our adorable Holland Lops and Netherland Dwarfs, please allow me to introduce our Huntington Hoppers team and give you a little background about our rabbitry.
My name is Shari and I am a high school science teacher, a mom of four children, I adore animals, and I have a passion for learning, for science, and for animals.
My partner, Tony, is a longtime high school football and track coach, can construct anything you can imagine in a wood shop, and has been breeding Netherland Dwarfs and Holland Lops in CT for over 50 years.
We have been friends for over 30 years and about a year ago, we decided to combine our strengths, interests, and passions and tackle breeding Holland Lops and Netherland Dwarf bunnies in Shelton, CT together. Between the two of us, we have an understanding of genetics, the creativity and skills to build large habitats and interactive toys for the rabbits, and we have plenty of love, time, and space to give to our bunnies. This allows every one of them, from our oldest breeding mom, to our tiniest newborn, to live enriched, loved, and happy lives.
Along with my four children, Tony and I take pride in giving all of our bunnies a wonderful life. Breeding parents are treated as family pets and live an exciting life. They not only have their own extremely large cages, but they are given opportunities during the day to free roam in the bunny room. Here they have plenty of space to run, jump, and climb on things, to play with toys, to explore, to forage for treats, to munch on fresh veggies and an occasional piece of fruit, and finally, to snuggle up on the sofa next to us each evening as we relax.
The babies are handled constantly and each is treated like our own precious little baby from the moment they were born to the moment they are handed over to their forever families. They learn to associate humans with love and have no problems bonding to the members of their new family.
They are primarily raised indoors but take "field trips" outside when the weather is ideal. We also plan breedings so a few litters are born a day or two apart and will wean from their moms around the same time. We then combine the litters and put them together in one of our "toddler cages" until they are 8 weeks old and can be adopted by their new families. Not only does this make separation from mom easier for the little bunnies, but snuggling and playing in a bigger group allows a variety of colors of bunnies to bond together from a very young age. This alleviates the concerns of customers who want to get two bunnies but are worried about whether or not they will get along. It also increases the variety of choices customers have when selecting two bunnies that are already bonded.
We want the best for our bunnies and we work hard to make Huntington Hoppers a premier location to find bunnies for sale in CT. Please check out our "Bunnies for Sale" page and contact me via email with any questions or concerns you may have.
