Abandonment / Neglect / Cruelty
Should you find a rabbit or suspect it is being poorly treated, please contact your local RSPCA immediately. If they cannot assist you, please call us & we will guide you through what to do next.
If you find a stray rabbit keep it safe in a bathroom. Feed fresh cut grass. Give bowl of water. Put newspaper in a corner to use as a toilet. Do not feed vegetables. Observe if bunny is eating, drinking and pooing. Text Kim on 0416 062 947 & text photos. Fill in the Surrender Form.
Surrendering your rabbit
Sometimes life doesn't go to plan & you may have found yourself in the position that you need to surrender a rabbit.
Sadly, the sanctuary receives a very high number of abandon / surrender applications.
We understand your situation would be incredibly upsetting, but we do implore you to exhaust all other options before deciding to part with your rabbit.
Often there are other alternatives available & we will work with you to find the best possible solution for both you & your rabbit.
There is a one-off fee that will apply when you surrender your rabbit to us. This fee helps us to cover some of the costs that will arise whilst the rabbit is in our care such as veterinary treatment, food, shelter, re-homing etc.
Thank you so much for reaching out to us for help.
IF YOU WISH FOR US TO ACCEPT AN ABANDONED, NEGLECTED, STRAY OR PRIVATELY OWNED RABBIT, YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A PHONE INTERVIEW FIRST.
SURRENDER FORMS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED UNLESS YOU HAVE HAD A PHONE INTERVIEW.
Please call Kim on 0416 062 947 & she will discuss the details of the surrender process & advise you of the next step.
