Rabbit Runaway Orphanage was established as a registered charity in 2009. The struggle to establish the first no kill pet rabbit rescue in Victoria is documented in many of the earlier media articles and shows bias against pet rabbits. Later articles demonstrate some of the work of the Orphanage.
This media was based on the misrepresentation of the Free Press Leader and Herald Sun. This Jon Faine segment was followed by an interview with Judi Inglis, President of Rabbit Runaway Orphanage, who addressed the inaccuracies in the article the following day at the start of the talkback segment.
This misinformed, bias and totally inaccurate article lead to a complete misunderstanding of the purpose of the grant as well as the work of the Orphanage.
