Is a Bunny Right for Your Family?
Rabbits need daily food, care and attention. Learn all you can before bringing one into your home. Take this interactive tour to learn if a bunny is the right pet for your family. But, please DO NOT support breeders or pet stores. There are wonderful adoptable bunnies looking for forever homes. Think adoption first!
Bunnies and Children
Please don't buy a bunny on impulse! With a lifespan of 8-12 (or more) years, rabbits are not low-maintenance and are not a good starter pet. They do not make a good pet for small children. Rabbits are prey animals by nature. They are physically fragile, can frighten easily, and will bite or nip when they find themselves in an uncomfortable situation, including being held by little arms. Domestic rabbits should be housed indoors, they require specialized veterinary care and they need unlimited hay in their diet, should eat a limited amount of an all-green pellet (no puffs, seeds, corn, etc.), and a daily salad of dark leafy greens. Be informed before making a bunny a part of your family!
We do not support any breeding of bunnies by agricultural breeders, commercial breeders, occasional breeders, or even one-time home breeders. Babies are cute, but are not a valid reason to breed an animal. By purposely breeding even once, you are adding to overpopulation and taking a home away from a rabbit that is already in foster care or in a shelter. Please help to stop the rabbit overpopulation - adopt a bun!
