Rabbit Care

Is a rabbit right for you?

Rabbits aren’t the “starter-pet” that most people may assume they are. Not all rabbits are suitable around children, and all rabbits require extensive knowledge, time, and money. Do your research before deciding to adopt a rabbit. You can’t just put a rabbit in an outside hutch by itself and expect it to be happy. Rabbits are very social creatures and usually do best in pairs or groupings. We endorse cage-free homes – rabbits are very intelligent and can be litter trained just like cats. We discourage impulse buys – especially around Easter when there seems to be the most “dumped” rabbits.
