Upcoming Events

The Bunny Hutch’s facility on Jensen Drive is CLOSED on the follow dates to attend these events, unless otherwise noted!


During the summer, our facility is closed when the heat index is too high. We sometimes have to make this call at the last minute, so we don’t always have time to update our website. For up-to-date information on closures due to heat, check out our Google listing before your visit. You can donate using the button at the top of the page help us raise the money we need for a new air conditioning system that would address this issue!
