PRE-APPROVAL TO ADOPT

Apply for Pre-Approval to Adopt

You have decided to adopt a rescue rabbit (or maybe two or three) and your indoor set up is ready or almost ready? Then follow these 3 steps:


1. Submit an adoption application form: 


ADOPTION APPLICATION FORM

2. If you haven't already, complete your setup. To do this, follow the instructions outlined in Step 4.

 

3. Take photos of your setup and your ID or drivers licence and upload them here: 


PHOTO UPLOAD FORM


Please note: You can only upload photos AFTER you have submitted your adoption application form.


We will review your photos and get back to you within a few days. Once you are pre-approved you can adopt a rescue rabbit of your choice. 


FAQ

Do I need to select a bunny before I apply? Or can I get pre-approved and select a bunny later?

Either way is fine! 


Do I need to submit one application for each rabbit I want to adopt?

No, we only need one application. In your application form you can list the name(s) of the rabbit(s) you are interested in. 


Can I "reserve" a bunny? 

If you are worried that a bunny you have fallen in love with gets adopted before your application has been approved, you can talk to Kim about "reserving" it.


I don't know which bunny is right for me, can you help me choose?

Definitely. In your adoption application we will ask you about your adoption preferences and living environment. If you would like advice on which of our rabbits would be a good match for you we are happy to provide that.


Do I need to have my setup ready when I apply? 

We recommend you have your set up ready or are close to getting everything set up. You can submit the application at any time, but to get approved you will need to submit photos of your setup using the photo upload form.


How long will it take to get approved? 

From the time you submitted your photos it may take a couple of days until you hear from Kim or one of our lovely volunteers.


What happens once I am approved? 

You will receive an email confirming you have been approved. Once you have made your pay-it-forward donation and made up your mind which rabbit you would like to adopt please let Kim know, and she will get you to connect with the rabbit's foster carer.


What reasons would you have to reject an application?

We will reject your application if 

  • you live in a state where we do not have any rabbits (WA, SA, NT, TAS) or if you live in Queensland and do not have a rabbit licence
  • you plan to let your rabbit live outdoors (for reasons explained here)
  • you have one or more rabbits that are not desexed (in this case we would put your application on hold)
  • if we see any other indication that the rabbit would not be safe in the environment you provide
