Welcome to the pages of Croatian Association of rabbit and hare Sanctuary - rabbit and hare Shelter & Rescue!



Rabbit and hare shelter TarraLand gives permanent home to medium-sized rabbits and larger ones, which were threatened by death because they were grown as food. In our shelter they are released freely within fenced and secured property which gives them a new chance for life. Males are castrated.

New residents are accepted under certain conditions. The pet rabbits don't have to come to our shelter, they are adopted directly in their new owner's house after we successfully connect them with help of our adoption ads. That gives us enough space in our shelter to provide a permanent home to truly endangered rabbits.

Shelter TarraLand works since 1998.

Besides helping the rabbits, since 2008. we are actively providing help to wild hares too. Young hares (revelets) shouldn't be touched because their mother is always near. Although they are alone in the middle of the meadows and seem unprotected, wild hares offspring are never left without mother. All the young hares that were saved by our association are young hares that were touched by people who mistakenly thought that hares have no mother. People leave human scent on hares and the mother no longer accepts them. Then our volunteers feed them with special milk substitute with medication. When the young hares get wounded by hoe, lawn mowers and other tools, we rehabilitate them.

In 2008., 10 years after establishment of TarraLand shelter, Association of rabbits and wild hares shelter „Mrkvica“ was founded. „Mrkvica“ (meaning Little Carrot) is acting all over Croatia. Thanks to our volunteers, member and donors, we succesfully reach our goals and accomplish many projects with purpose of protecting these animals.
