Success for 3 Orphaned Baby Bunnies

We are pleased and proud to announce that we were able to help a local school with 3 baby bunnies that the students unearthed in a sawdust pile at the school recently.  The baby bunnies were only a week old when the teacher brought them to the Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary for hand rearing.  They took to the tiny bottle and teat well and were successfully reared and very healthy and playful indeed.  They loved playing in the Hound House BunnyHouse that was given to us for the rescue rabbits. 

The teacher found two lovely families to adopt the baby rabbits and we supplied them with care booklet, voucher for vet check and desexing at Riverbank Vet in South Grafton, a week's food and a little Hound House BunnyHouse for each family.  One family took the female and the other took the two males.  A happy ending for all concerned.

There are many pet companies that help us out in various ways with the rabbits that need a new home.  Please visit the page of this one to help them too in return.  Designer Pet accessories can be found on Coco and Pud's website.  Please give them a click or two for us.

Opt to Adopt

This time of the year is quite busy for rabbit rescue with many rabbits finding themselves without a loving home.  If you are considering buying a rabbit please consider adopting one first.

Baby Bunnies up for Adoption

We are hoping that our blog visitors will help us to spread the word about these baby bunnies that need a home. Click on their adoption page to see a photo.

Pet Furniture

Rabbit Accessories especially rabbit playpens make a pet rabbit's life better.
We can't stress enough how rabbits need more than a hutch or cage to live healthily, happily and comfortably. 

Rabbits need accessories and they need space to run around and to leap up high into the air. In fact we think they should have a minimum of a 16 panel pen surrounding their hutch in the day time. 24 panels is better. Rabbits need exercise to make their digestive systems work well.

Kaiser the Gentle Giant Rabbit for Adoption NSW Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary

Kaiser is a gentle giant rabbit. He is friendly and will come to you for pats. He is up for adoption and can go to a loving family that has plenty of room for him to hop. He can't be locked in a cage. He is too big and needs a lot of room to hope around in and be able to stand up on his back legs. When he does that he is quite tall.  In the Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary we often think he is a small kangaroo when he is sitting up! That's because we are located in the Australian bush.  He is currently living in a 30 20 meter grassed enclosure.  He doesn't need that much space but he does need a run rather than a cage.  Please phone Kim on 0416062947 or post your expression of interest as a comment on this page if you are interested in adopting Kaiser Rabbit.  Pet transport can be arranged to take him to you.

You probably saw it on our facebook page but did you know we found 2 baby rabbits in our roadside mailbox last week? Someone left them there in the night and we didn't find them until we went for the mail the afternoon of the next day. They were stuffed into the mailbox in a birdcage that was crushed to fit in.

They are a little girl and a little boy bunny. They are extremely tame and friendly and would make wonderful pets. Please phone 0416 062 947 if you think you could give them a place in your home and heart.

He would make a wonderful house rabbit as he is very clean of habit and never soils his living areas.

We love Ginger here at The Rabbit Sanctuary.  She is a loving and loveable gentle rabbit with amazing ginger and white patches.  She came in from Queensland where she could not be kept due to a neighbour threatening to report her owners to the Government.

Ginger runs up to the side of the enclosure to say hello and loves being patted.

Lots of White Rabbits Looking for Homes!

Are you looking to adopt a white rabbit!?  At The Rabbit Sanctuary we have some beautiful 'Alice in Wonderland' White Rabbits looking to become part of a loving family. There are big white bunnies and small white ones too.  There are some with dark eyes and some with the traditional pink eyes.  These are known as 'red eyed white' rabbits in the rabbit clubs amongst the registered breeders of purebred rabbits.  In rabbit shows the red eyed whites are very popular and come in a variety of breeds such as mini lops, dwarf lops, netherland dwarfs and lots of other breeds including angora rabbits.  We have rescued some New Zealand white rabbits with pink eyes and they are truly gentle rabbits of a medium to large size.  Other rescue rabbits include smaller dark eyed white and white rabbits with tips of colour on their ears, nose and feet.  Give us a call on 0416 062 947 or email us if you are interested in adopting a white rabbit.

Please visit our sponsors site to help us show our thanks for their support. Just click on the word Pet to get there. Please also like and make them a favourite site on facebook today!

Anyone like Black Rabbits?

We have quite a few black rabbits in The Rabbit Sanctuary.  They are all short haired rabbits and most are small.  All are very friendly and would make wonderful pets.  We recommend that if you are getting a rabbit to purchase a travel capsule to carry your new pet in.  You will find that you frequently need a carry cage e.g. when taking your rabbit to the vet or on holidays with you or just to keep him or her in while you clean the regular enclosure.

Racer gives up the races!

A lovely lady visited The Rabbit Sanctuary today and will be taking "Racer" the black rabbit who was rescued by a girl who grabbed him from a guy using him to bait greyhounds with. The girl's sister worked for the RSPCA so the guy is being prosecuted.  Racer will be inside evenings and cold days and outside on the grass on nice days.   We are organising equipment etc then Racer's new owner will visit Riverbank Animal Hospital with a special voucher from The Rabbit Sanctuary.  After that he will take up residence in his new family home.

Velvet is a black rabbit of medium size.  He has the softest fur ever.  That's because he has what is known as 'plush' fur.  It feels like velvet which is how he got his name.  Velvet would love a home where is is inside at night with the family and on grass during the day.  He is LITTER TRAINED! Yes, he uses his litter tray perfectly so no mess to clean up inside.  If you would like photos and more on Velvet please email The Rabbit Sanctuary.  Velvet can be transported to anywhere in Australia.
