Where to keep your pet rabbits

Thinking of adopting pet rabbits? That's good:) 

Where will you keep them?

We highly recommend that the bunnies be kept inside in a playpen. It ensures that they are a real pet and can interact with the family. It ensures they are safe from predators, mozzies, fleas that carry the 2 diseases that kill rabbits.

Cupid is a timid white mini lop boy who is relaxed and just wants to cuddle. He loves a pat and will come for food. He is in Sydney near Blacktown and we can deliver to other places.
He is sad because his bunny friend got adopted this week but not him. He is an indoor House Rabbit who uses a litter tray well. He is Desexed, Vaccinated, Microchipped, Vet Checked Healthy. If you need a bunny please apply on this site on drop down menu.

They are desexed and vaccinated and very tame and friendly. The little boy bunny BUNKIN has an abscess that is receiving treatment but apart from that is very healthy.  These will only be adopted as house rabbits. The basic requirement is a playpen in your home with a litter tray, tiny kennel or pet tunnel. They must also be adopted together as a pair as they love each other:)

Stop your rabbit digging under his outdoor day pen.

A solution would be an indoor playpen for evening and night for safety, company with your bunnies so you can interact with them and enjoy them and reducing their access to the earth around your house. Combine that with a "Day Pen & Hutch" with shade and a big run. 

How to make a Dig Proof Rabbit Day Pen
The run can be made non-diggable by laying a 'carpet' of chicken wire over the lawn then topping it with washed river sand (from nursery). The grass will grow through the sand with some daily watering. 

You can make the pen large so that they are still enjoying your yard during the day but can't dig. 

Put a sandpit in so they can keep up their digging practice safely:)

Wire over your grass, cover with washed river sand, grass will grow up through. No digging!

Shade is important. Shade sails, a tree or umbrella can help. The table offers shade & is 5 degrees cooler under.

Having your hutch up on a table makes cleaning easy

Rabbit Rescue

Rabbits in Need of Help

Rabbit Rescue often involves veterinary and nursing care of the bunnies that we rescue. Quite often they are sick or injured or just thin due to starvation.  

Rescue rabbit being medicatedThe photo shows Kim Cooney from The Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary medicating a sick rabbit Francis who has been in the rabbit shelter near Grafton for some time. Kim says that when a bunny comes in that has a long term chronic illness or has suffered terrible starvation or cruelty she quite often makes the decision to keep them at the Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary rather than attempt to find a home for them because she says "They have 'done their time with humans and now it is their time, a time to enjoy life with good care and veterinary support from the Sanctuary vet Dr Chris and his wonderful rabbit vet team in Grafton NSW". We thank him for his support of our rabbit shelter.

Francis has a common chronic disease known as ecuniculi or EC for short. This rabbit disease can affect various organs causing paralysis. When Francis came into the Rabbit Sanctuary he began to present with symptoms which quickly developed into a total body paralysis. Kim said, "Only his nose was moving and only slightly". He was seen by Dr Lucy who made his diagnosis and treatment has been ongoing and Francis lives a fairly normal life apart from occasional relapses which quick veterinary treatment and nursing by Kim fix up in no time. At the time of writing he is well enough to play happily with rabbit toys which is lovely to see.

If you would like to adopt a disabled or injured  rescue rabbit contact Kim at the Rabbit Sanctuary Australia for information on how you can work with her to help rescue rabbits in need. Text works best for Kim on 0416 062 947.
