So you’re sure you want a bunny, you have researched what a bunny requires, and you have met our bunnies. Now all you need to do is satisfy our stringent adoption requirements and you can go on our list to be notified when bunnies become available.
No problem! We can outfit you with everything you need.
OUTDOOR SETUP: $320.00
INCLUDES: Two Bunnies, large Cedar hutch, water bottle, food tray, litter pan, timothy hay, bedding straw, stall dry and 50lbs Purina Show Rabbit pellets.
We recommend two bunnies for an outside housing arrangement to satisfy bunnies’ highly developed social needs and to combat loneliness and boredom for those times when you are not playing with your bunny, additionally whilst the hutch is an adequately sized sleeping space, it is important to also provide access to a larger area for exercise and play. I recommend a spiral tether stake, long leash and Chihuahua collar for gardens that are not enclosed, or a fenced area outside the bunny enclosure for rabbits to free range in.
Bunnies are very home oriented and territorial, so they are not inclined to leave their established territory. However they will wander and develop a ‘range’, although they will spend most of their time in your garden. However allowing them to wander at will means they are vulnerable to attack from critters, and that they will test your neighbor’s patience when they eat up the entire spring plantings or veggie patch. For these reasons we recommend that bunnies be tethered or enclosed in a fenced area for exercise.
INDOOR SETUP: $300.00
INCLUDES: 3 level indoor habitat, water bottle, food tray, litter pan, timothy hay, bedding straw, stall dry and 50lbs Purina Show Rabbit pellets. Add more bunnies – $30 each.
An indoor bunny will socialize with you, so you and your family will become the bunnies’ extended family. We recommend that the bunny habitat is located in a quiet, easy to clean area that allows your bunny to retreat and regroup after socialization and activity, an area that can be closed off when you are not there to supervise your bunny, and a place for your bunny to access food, water, toys and toilet facilities with ease.
In the wild bunnies make paths through the underbrush by snipping anything crossing their faces with their sharp incisors. Therefore anything in your house that dangles down across a potential bunny path will need to be wrapped in a cord tidy/protector which will stop the bunny from biting through cords. Additionally you can place barriers to prevent access to those hard to reach areas that bunnies love to lurk in. Bunnies also keep their teeth and nails sharp by digging and gnawing. Providing sand paper trays and toys made from products safe to gnaw will save your furniture and flooring.
Bunnies are extremely neat and tidy and will litter train with ease. Provided they are given regular access to their toilet space they will be very neat, but you may notice pellets here and there when they are given free range. These can be more easily managed by only giving your bunny treats like leafy greens in their own area so that any subsequent poops are deposited in an easy to clean area.
Here are just a few of the places in the Puget Sound area which take in bunnies. As you can imagine these shelters are always looking for people to make donations and adopt their bunnies.
