Is a Rabbit the right pet for you?
When we consider the addition of a pet to our family, we need to consider if this animal is suited to our current lifestyle.
Can you keep the rabbit as a INDOOR house pet?
Are there predator animals in the home that can be managed around the rabbit?
Are there young children under 8 yrs that can be managed around the rabbit?
Have you considered the financial cost of vet care?
Can you COMMIT to caring for this animal for the next 10 to 12 years?
If you can answer "yes" to these 5 important questions, then you may be able to provide an appropriate home for a bunny.
RABBITS IN RENTAL PROPERTIES: Yes, find out your rights!
If you do not find YOUR BUNNY here please scroll down to see other rabbit rescues as all buns deserve loving homes.
