Am I ready to adopt?
Deciding to adopt a bunny is a fun & exciting journey, however it requires time, planning & research
Before you consider adopting a rabbit, we've got some things you may want to ask yourself.
Am I prepared to care for a rabbit for its whole life?
Rabbits can live 8-12 years. Whilst they are adorable, you will need to be in it for the long haul.
Can I afford a rabbit?
There are many costs involved with owning a rabbit. Aside from the initial set up costs, you will need to be prepared for bi-annual vet care, food, bedding, toys & boarding for the life of your rabbit. You will also need to ensure you have money put aside for any emergency veterinary treatment required.
Do I have time to care for a rabbit?
Rabbits are not an animal you can leave in a small hutch with no interaction. They require & deserve your love & attention. Exercise, socialisation, grooming, feeding & play time are critical aspects of owning a rabbit. As they are an indoor animal, you will need to be prepared for regular cleaning.
Do I live in a suitable accommodation for a rabbit?
If you rent, has your landlord given you written permission to have a rabbit? Your home will need enough space for an ample sized indoor pen / enclosure. Your rabbit will also need free time out of its pen to ensure it gets through exercise.
Will a rabbit fit into my lifestyle?
Family, work, social life & travel are all factors that need to be carefully considered before adopting a rabbit. Companion animals love human affection & will depend on you. Your life must accommodate for them.
If you really want a rabbit but find time constraints may limit its human interaction, adopting 2 rabbits is ideal. You will just need to ensure you have enough space for the both of them. We offer a 'Bonding Program' where you can choose 2 rabbits, & we will bond them together prior to you picking them up so all of the hard work is done for you.
Do I understand how to care for a rabbit?
Before you adopt a rabbit, it is essential you thoroughly research the basic requirements it will need for the duration of its life. More than likely your rabbit has come from a sad situation so you need to make absolutely sure you can give it the best home possible.
