Caleb Smith

Thank you for sharing the journey!
This site is primarily about the rabbits, the vision to create an island for training comfort rabbits, and the Peacebunny Cottage where they stay year round. 


But here's a little about Caleb...

Topic: “Journey to Peacebunny Island”
by Caleb Smith

CEO/Founder of Peacebunny Islands Inc.
Teen Entrepreneur, Eagle Scout, Author
Paul Harris Fellow

Discover the remarkable story of a 16-year old social entrepreneur who naturally sees the value in things often “discarded” and the people who are often “dismissed.”


At the age of 8, Caleb Smith began to rescue rabbits no longer wanted after Easter. This motivated him to create an educational nonprofit to help youth, who like the rabbits, fall through the gaps.  Then, in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting, Caleb personally witnessed therapy animals in action. He envisioned youth, mobilized to save rabbits, they would train to become comfort animals.

At 14, he rented, and ultimately purchased, a 22-acre Mississippi River island to serve as a summer sanctuary for these rare-breed rabbits and rescues.

Find yourself inspired to reflect on what would you attempt if you knew you couldn’t fail and discover what can happen when we choose to be open, look for potential and possibility, and add in patience, persistence and a bunch of positivity.
