Thank you for the support!

We would like to thank Donna from Sophies Choice Pet Treats for their support for The Rabbit Sanctuary.

They also support pound dogs in need of a home at  Those dogs are on death row and so if you can take one into your family please do.

Pet Rabbits

If you have pet rabbits or are considering adopting some, please take them to the vet to be desexed.  This way they won't create up to 9 or 10 babies each month and you won't have to worry about what to do with all those rabbits.  Being desexed makes your pet rabbit much quieter and happier to sit still and be petted.  They are less stressed so they are healthier.

Rabbits getting along together

Rabbits don't usually get along together on meeting.  They may bite each other quite severely.

It is best to introduce rabbits to each other slowly, over time.  Two separate areas next to each other can help.

Rabbits under Sydney Harbour Bridge being rescued!

A delightful follow up to this story about the abandoned pet rabbits under the Sydney Harbour Bridge with two wonderful girls trying to gain the attention and compassion of authorities to their plight.  They succeeded!

Two groups working together to save these bunnies!  This is such a big step forward for Australia.  This responsible approach to the problem of the Sydney rabbits in Dawes Point Park is such a better solution than the previous one of poisoning the bunnies. 

Poisoning teaches our children not to respect life whereas this wonderful team effort between the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and the Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital is giving our children and society a very positive message about animal welfare and the value of life. 

By treating these rabbits with respect and care their status is immediately given a boost in our culture.  There value is raised.  Congratulations to the team!  Thank you to Saul and Diane for getting this to happen!
