Advantages: Great pets, ideal for older kids and not to expensive to keep
Disadvantages: They poo alot....I mean ALOT!!
I was in a pet shop one day and remember begging my mum for a rabbit :( My mum said NO naturally..we had quite a collection at home already!! But me being a moody 13yr old and asking her over and over again she eventually changed her mind on one condition! We would re-home from a rescue centre. We brought home Jasper and Mouse a few weeks later they were quite big, fully grown males... there was lots of baby rabbits, but the boys had been there a while so we decided to give them a home.
Re-homing from the sspca is the way to go not only are you giving an unwanted, stray or abused animal a place to call home,You find out there medical background and they neuter/spay most animals also .... We had a Sspca officer come to the house before we could bring them home he checked our garden to make sure there was plenty of space, our hutch was a good size etc. My step-dad built a run for the boys only to find them running about outside it about half an hour after they were put in the first time. We ended up building the biggest rabbit run EVER..no need for them to escape because there was plenty of room for them to run about now!!
Rabbits are great pets and love company from other rabbits and humans, they enjoy being able to run about as freely as possible and having a plentiful supply of good quality grass or hay. We bought our hay from a local farmer which cost between £2.50 and£3.00 for a small square bail..much cheaper than buying from the pet shop and lasted a lot longer, also rabbits need mixed meal as well as fruit and veg which has all the vitamins and minerals they need to keep healthy. You can purchase mixed meal from your local pet shop or market and costs around £1.00 per bag per rabbit
Rabbits are not an expensive pet to have, but just like any other animal they need a lot of affection and plenty of TLC.
If you thinking about re-homing an outdoor rabbit from your local rescue centre you will need the following;-
*A friend to keep them company
* Be willing to visit the vets and pay for any necessary vet bills
*A large hutch thats warm and weather proof which you will have to clean regularly to keep clean and dry.
* A large run on a grassy area were the can run a play on dry days
* Bedding for them to snuggle up in
*A plentiful supply of fresh food
*Fresh water on a daily basis
*and lots of love and affection.
Remember rabbits need commitment and can live up to 12yrs if looked after properly.
Summary: Lovely pets, Could watch them bounce about all day :D
