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:
