Vet Care Appeal

Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage continually struggles to meet the ongoing vet care for the rabbits with health challenges in our extensive foster care program. We are all volunteers and receive no government assistance.  We have not been eligible for financial support during 2 years of COVID, as rabbits are not covered under the Domestic Animal Act.  Our foster program is the only one of its kind in Australia. 
Your contribution would mean that we can continue our valuable work  looking after the most helpless and discarded animals like Lara.


Donations are Tax Deductible.
