Rabbits and Animal

The Orphanage is of the opinion that rabbits and dogs must never be left together unsupervised. Rabbits stress easily as they are prey animals, and the stress of being around a predator may cause a “flight” response, to which a dog, with its natural predator instinct, may give chase and a tragedy could result. Rabbits and Guinea pigs also should not be housed together. Find out why in our articles:

Rabbits and Dogs

Rabbit Runaway Orphanage has had many rabbits come into its care after the dog has been “playing” with the rabbit... sadly the rabbits have all died from their injuries.

Rabbits and Guinea Pigs

Why guinea pigs and rabbits should not be housed together? Rabbits and guinea pigs need different foods to meet their different dietary requirements...

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.
