Bunny Tip

Consider 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

Rabbits on Leashes

roundedbars525x8

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.

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.

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.

Breeding

roundedbars525x8

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!

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!
