Sharing Hugs, Hope and Hoppiness
This private 22 acre main island is a natural, sustainable oasis nestled in the Mississippi National River Recreation Area (National Park) near river mile 832 in Minnesota, USA.
Youth guardians care for the Comfort Rabbits in Training during their outings together to and from the island where they spend warm lazy summer days on the main island or go island hopping by boat to our nearby partner islands we call "Hope" and "Hoppiness."
The rabbits live year round at Peacebunny Cottage when they are not at events or at foster homes. During warmer months we host bunny playdates in the pasture, but our educational programs continue year round.
"My vision for Peacebunny Island started several years ago when
an endangered American Blue rabbit named Paxton Peacebunny decided to adopt me.
I told Pax that I knew it would take a bunch of dreamers
with a pure heart to create such a special place.
And it took some work, but I found them."
