A way I think we can make a difference on places like Craigslist is through education. In a passive way without negative language also. More along the lines of
“Are you a rabbit owner and want to know more about them? – Here is a list of great resources that helped me…”.
Or
“Is your rabbit driving you crazy? Check out these resources to see if you can solve the issue”
Or
“Do you need to find your rabbit a new home? Here are some tips on finding it a good second home”.

Obviously that won’t reach everyone or make much impact for those out to make a quick buck offloading their animals. That’s a cycle that is hard to have an impact on.
But it just may help someone who got in over their head with a pet rabbits and was at a loss how to improve things. If they then can try again and then become happy with their pet, they’re more likely to reach out to others that were in same situation as them. A ripple effect.

Or it may be that other persons like yourself, looking through Craigslist out of concern for rabbits, see the ads and become aware of resources they can then go on and promote themselves. Again, ripple effect.

So while it might not feel the same as saving a rabbit directly, it’s something that costs nothing and can be done consistently over a long length of time in the hopes that eventually, the general public become more aware of the needs of rabbits.
