Judge's Park is a very small rescue, founded in 2005, helping as many animals as I can. Since 2005, we have found homes for over 500 small animals! Currently, I am working out of my home, but hopefully will someday move to a bigger facility and start adopting out dogs, cats, horses, and other assorted animals!
The shelter is named after my soulhorse, a horse who inspired me to do what I do, and who died before we had nearly enough time together. This is for you Judge...
We are currently located in Edinburg, PA close to New Castle, Youngstown, and within an hour and a half of Cleveland and an hour from Pittsburgh. Appointments must be made.
Judge's Park is official! Though small, we will grow large in time. As of now I just have small animals for adoption, but in the future I hope to progress to all animals.
We are a certified 501c3 non profit.
I sometimes accept rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small animals as we have room. I can also list small animals for you if you need to rehome yours and can keep them until they get adopted if you send me a digital picture on email and a description.
WE DO NOT TAKE IN DOGS OR CATS, or anything larger than a rabbit. Please do not call about us taking in dogs or cats, we do not have the space or money for them.
Judge's Park is currently in desperate need of adopters and fosters. With the economy, our adoptions have ground to a halt. If you've ever thought of adopting a bunny or a guinea pig or other small critter, now is the time! We have many wonderful animals in need of their forever homes!
Our friends at Small Pet Select (www.smallpetselect.com) have a promotion going on that benefits Judge's Park! To raise money for rabbit rescues, Small Pet Select is giving away these Bunny Wrap Rings (retail value $15.95) with purchase of any hay or pellet product from smallpetselect.com. In addition, when you use coupon code JPRING in checkout, 10% of every purchase will be donated to Judge's Park! Small Pet Select has great hay and other rabbit products and gifts (I myself got the keychain, ring, and necklace!). Their hay is great and the bunnies love it, so consider purchasing today, especially since it helps us out!
We are currently offering that if you are looking to adopt a bunny as a companion for your current rabbit, the adoption fee for the rabbit being adopted will be lowered to $50. (All other single rabbit adoption fees are $60 which include spay/neuter, microchip, and first vet visit).
Our bonded pairs are being lowered to $75 for the pair (adoption fees for a pair are usually $100). Please email using our contact form below for more information on adoption!!
Holidays and Rabbits
We DO NOT adopt out rabbits for the holidays or as holiday presents. Many times people think that rabbits are the perfect gifts, and they are without a doubt not. They are pets that require a lot of responsibility and attention, and they are not recommended for children under 10. They must have large size cages or 4' x 4' puppy pens with plenty of out of cage time. They should not be outside under any circumstances. They are too sensitive to temperature changes and predators and their life span is twice as long if they live inside. They must also be spayed and neutered, and must make trips to the vet if they are sick and/or not eating. They are not cheap animals. They require a specialized diet of hay, high quality pellets (without any added "treats"), and 2-3 servings of veggies a day especially dark, leafy greens. With that said, they make amazing, affectionate, litter box trained, wonderful companions, but you must do your research on them first. Please see www.rabbit.org for more information.
