Rabbit Health - Rabbit Droppings

Rabbit Droppings

Your rabbit's droppings or poop is a good indicator when it comes to knowing if your bunny is healthy and feeling well.

The rabbit poop should be large and not too dry nor too moist.

If the poop is tiny and dry it means there might be a blockage or that your rabbit is not getting enough fibre e.g. hay.

If your rabbit's poos are kind of strung together with hairs it probably means that your bunny is ingesting hair. This means that you should clean all hair out of his or her housing areas and brush to remove the excess fur.

If the rabbit droppings are too sloppy then cut back on vegetables and ensure a good diet of high quality rabbit pellets and premium grade hay.

Rabbit Cecal Pellets

Everyday your bunny will do a special poop which is something he or she eats like a cow chews her cud. It is not really poo but instead is a bundle of nutrients that needs to be eaten to gain the necessary vitamins and minerals for the day.

Rabbits for Adoption

Just arrived and looking for a loving home, LIL BUN & PIXIE shown here in the travel cage they came in. Lovely gentle friendly bunnies would make great pets. They lived as house rabbits in Queensland but their owner got a new Neighbour who she thought might dob her in to the government so for their safety she surrendered them to The Rabbit Sanctuary.

We can recommend this pair as very good pet bunnies.

Rabbit Adoption

Thank you for considering adoption. Every rabbit adopted makes a space for us to rescue another abandoned rabbit. 

Adopt a Rabbit from our available rabbits gallery.

Most of our rabbits are young because most rabbits are abandoned before their first year. This happens due to impulse buying of tiny baby rabbits in pet shops. Rabbits make wonderful house pets if care is taken to understand their needs and behaviours. 

We love to assist with that and provide ongoing support. Our bunnies come to you Desexed and vaccinated. We can deliver to most places. If you live near us or are passing through we welcome you to book a visit. 

Black Rabbit for Sale

BINDI is available for adoption to good home. She is a jet black girl rabbit. She is (like all Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary rabbits, Desexed, vaccinated etc). See Prices on our Available Rabbits page.

This gorgeous black lop rabbit girl loves pats and enjoys chatting with you over a cuppa. She is currently at The Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary near Grafton NSW and looking for a loving home. She would be a good friend for your desexed boy pet rabbit or you can adopt her with a desexed male rabbit friend of your choice. Bunnies love to cuddle with a friend when you are not around and at night. They hate being all alone for any time.

Ph/Text Kim for an application form on 0416062947
Pet Rescue Rabbits can be delivered by air or road to most places in NSW and VICTORIA

Rabbits VIOLET & Peter Rabbit have a loving new home in Casino NSW.
We encourage families to provide basket handling of bunnies as tiny children don't have the strength or dexterity to correctly lift and carry a rabbit. Many rabbits are dropped by little children and suffer severe injuries.

It is best to put bunnies on a table with baskets to sit in and children can brush them, stroke them, cuddle them and kiss them without getting scratched or bitten through poor handling.

Adults should always supervise children with their pet rabbits.

Sunday, October 12, 2014


Thinking about buying a rabbit? Looking at rabbits for sale advertisements? We'd ask you to consider adopting a rabbit instead:) Why buy when in pounds and shelters around Australia rabbits are being abandoned and in many cases put to sleep. Opt to adopt!

Rabbits and Children

If you are thinking of buying a rabbit for childen please consider that we expect the adult to have responsibility for the health and well being of the rabbit.  Children can certainly bring and prepare foods and water for the rabbit but the parent must supervise and check to ensure that the rabbit will be safe, comfortable and have the correct amount of each type of food and plenty of fresh cool, clean water available as well as shade and room to run if outside and good ventilation if left inside.

SQUISH is a very friendly orange rabbit boy up for adoption to a good home. He is 9 months old.
He arrived from Sydney surrendered by his owners who said their lifestyle had become too busy with work and travel to give him the attention he deserves.  

SQUISH has found a little bunny girl friend at The Rabbit Sanctuary called PANSY who is very timid but loves cuddles. We would like them to be adopted together.  What a gorgeous pair of bunny pets you would have. He gets on very well with other rabbits too so if you want a Desexed male rabbit friend for your girl rabbit he would be great.

Giant White Rabbits for Adoption

We are hoping that some of the giant white rabbits rescued from a research lab will get good homes this week.

If you are looking for a giant rabbit then one of the 7 Research Lab rabbits would make you a great pet. They need a big yard and love getting up on their rabbit tree house or the roof of a hutch.

They had lived their lives up to coming to The Rabbit Sanctuary in steel cages with artificial light and air conditioning. Now they can be free to smell the air and experience wind and rain and sunlight and friendship with other bunnies and people.

Linsay sheds tears as she prepares to leave 'Thumper' 
Another very sad Queenslander parts with a bunny she rescued in that state. It is amazing how attached people get to rabbits even when they have had them only a short time.

Linsay and her partner James rescued this beautiful rabbit and cared for her until they found out about The Rabbit Sanctuary and brought her down. Once her vet work is done she will be available for adoption. She is very tame and friendly. Her coat colour is sable with a broken pattern. 

Ph/Text Kim on 0416062947 if you are interested in adopting this beautiful rabbit. Her adoption fee is $25. She will come to you desexed and vaccinated, microchipped and an ear tattoo.

We have renamed her RUTH and she is now with our foster carer in Tweed Heads and available to go to a loving home with her friend BOP. See our Rabbits Available tab above for more on her and BOP.
