Netherlands Dwarf Rabbit Pair for adoption

We present Mum and baby Netherland Dwarf bunnies.  We presume as they came into the Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary together. Tame and cuddly, Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and mite free. Very healthy with good teeth. If interested phone or text Kim on 0416062947

Looking to buy a tiny rabbit? Opt to adopt and help us to save some more rabbits. When you adopt a pair of rabbits from the Rabbit Sanctuary you make 2 spaces so we can take in two more little souls.

 When you adopt a bunny you get a lot of added value with the desexing, vaccinations and other vet work all done. This takes out a lot of expense for you and also the time and caring etc is all done. Plus the risk is over and you have gorgeous healthy rabbits ready to take home. 

These tiny rabbits are an off white Colour with white highlights. We have other dwarf and larger rabbits with various coat types, long fur or short and in many colours like chocolate, black, orange, grey, white, brown, tan, agouti and black and white plus other colours. 

Each rabbit comes with care booklet, quick care sheet, vet voucher, rabbit house name tag, discount voucher for a RabbitHouse and ongoing support.

Rescue rabbits New Home as House Rabbits

Two of the rabbit rescue bunnies in their new home with Katrina as house rabbits. They hang out on the back veranda during the day and rush to the door to be let inside when the family gets home in the afternoon after school. 


You can listen to a short ABC radio segment on Hares and Rabbits in NSW. Behaviours of hares are compared to habits of rabbits for example hares live above ground and hide from predators whereas rabbits live underground and run into their burrows when predators approach. The hare runs faster than the leopard at around 72kph.  The top speed of a fox is identical. The greyhound is faster than a hare:(

Hares will die if you try to keep them in captivity except if they are born in captivity.

Very interesting radio segment for those who are interested in hares and rabbits.

This is why you should NEVER EVER let your unwanted rabbits go but should place them in a rabbit shelter


This is a cool rabbit habitat! There are two photos one of the outside and one from the view of the bunny in his little hidey.


If you ever need to know what to do or have a question about rabbit health you can ask our Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary Vet in Grafton and Dr Chris or Dr Lucy will answer your question gladly. We are all trying to help people with their rabbits as they are so precious to us.

Problems in undesexed rabbits in season

Undesexed rabbits will come in and out of season. It is best to have your female rabbits desexed to save them this anguish. The sign of a female rabbit being on heat is a swollen red vulva.  A Desexed female rabbit will be a much calmer pet and not subject to unwanted litters that will be hard to find good homes for.  The cost of desexing a female rabbit ranges widely from vet to vet. Some vets charge around $160 while others charge up to $400.  Ask your vet to provide pain relief after surgery and take home an oral pain relief that can be administered by string to the mouth quite easily. Desexing is a painful procedure. It is actually a hysterectomy. After care for your Desexed female rabbit is important. Keep her warm and her area sterile to lessen the chance of infection. Ask your vet to use dissolving stitches.
