You wouldn't buy a REINDEER for your child at Christmas. So why would you buy a RABBIT for your child at Easter?       Download the poster!Orlando Rabbit Care:
Education for Bunny Parents

Orlando Rabbit Care is an educational group and membership organization dedicated to the health, care and enjoyment of house rabbits. We believe that pet rabbits are family members and should be housed indoors, should be fed a healthy diet, should be spayed or neutered, and should receive quality medical care. Our organization strives to provide bunny parents with information to help them care for their rabbit as well as offer an outlet to meet and talk with others who share an interest in pet rabbits. We also offer education to the public on proper care of pet rabbits

We are not a rescue group and do not take in abandoned or unwanted rabbits. Learn more

Bunny Tip

bunny_leftfaceConsider it an EMERGENCY if your rabbit can't eat, poop, urinate, breathe or walk OR if in pain for any reason. If your rabbit has not eaten or output in 8-12 hours, your rabbit is in crisis and needs to see the vet ASAP.

Bunnies are Smart, But They Don't Belong in School

Please encourage teachers to keep rabbits out of the classroom. Learn more about Classroom Rabbits.

Do You Have a Sick Rabbit?

Responsible pet ownership means taking a sick bunny to a vet. Rabbits become ill and feel pain, just like you and I so please don't look for home remedies when only a vet can diagnose and treat your bunny.

Rabbits on Leashes

It's not cute if a rabbit can be hurt! A rabbit's body structure is fragile and is not designed to be on a harness or leash. They can easily break bones, their back... or worse. Rabbits also frighten easily and have been known to tangle themselves in leashes while trying to escape from both real and perceived threats. Read more.

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!

Make Yours a House Bun

We do not support housing a bunny outdoors even in a hutch, run or a screened-in back porch. Read Hazards to Outdoor Buns.

Bunnies and Children

bunny_strtPlease 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!

Bunny Birth Control

Read an Orlando Sentinel article about the importance of spaying & neutering.


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!
