The cost of purchasing or adopting a rabbit varies from as low as $5 to as high as $100. The cost depends upon where the rabbit comes from and what breed it is.
Rabbits can be adopted from private owners, animal shelters and rescue organizations. They can also be purchased from 4-H groups and local farms. Some pet stores also have rabbits available. Rare breeds are more expensive than common breeds.
Although the cost of buying a rabbit may be fairly inexpensive, the price of caring for the rabbit often costs more than the rabbit itself. It is not advisable to allow rabbits to roam freely like cats and dogs do, therefore they require either an indoor cage or an outdoor hutch. The cost of a cage or hutch usually falls somewhere between $50 and $200. The cost of food and bedding averages out to about $40 per month.
