Rabbits are not illegal to keep in Hawaii but they are required by law to be housed in hutches off the ground
State Law Citation: “§142-95 Rabbits, Belgian hares, to be kept off ground; penalty. Any person who breeds, raises or keeps rabbits or Belgian hares shall keep them off the ground.
Any person who violates this section shall be fined not more than $100 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both. [L 1957, c 298, §§1, 2; Supp, §20-94; HRS §142-95]”
Did you know that rabbits can be spayed or neutered?
Rabbits are prolific reproducers. If not managed properly, populations can get out of control very quickly. If keeping rabbits as pets please consider having them spayed or neutered. If keeping rabbits as livestock please consider keeping the males and females separated to manage the rate of reproduction.
