Australian House Rabbit Society


The First HRS Chapter in Australia

In September 2013, Dr. Judi and Mr. Bryce Inglis, who established Rabbit Run-away Orphanage, were invited to become an official chapter of the esteemed House Rabbit Society (HRS).  This means that they have formed the very first HRS Australian Chapter in Australia!  At the time of forming the Chapter, they were, together with Lara Nettle, the only three HRS Educators licensed in Australia.


If you feel you have the skills and knowledge to become an educator, please visit our HRS educator application page.


The House Rabbit Society has been established for 25 years and is the oldest and most respected animal welfare organisation for rabbits in the world. In addition, their website is the most complete database on rabbit information across the globe. HRS Chapter Managers have extensive rabbit knowledge, training and hands-on experience and must be a registered charitable rescue. Read more about Bunny information here.

Parking on the property is limited. We have a very steep driveway with limited turning space.

If you are worried about our steep driveway, please park on the Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd near the Mt Dandenong Hotel, walk past the Vet, turn into Illoura St then left into Stanley St.  Our property is on the left, only a 5 minute walk.

PLEASE NOTE: There is NO public parking in Stanley St.  Please DO NOT park in resident's driveways or in front of their homes, as this disrupts the neighbors access and parking for their family/visitors.
