All over Sydney, there are little lives that are being lived out on street corners, in parks,
around factories, in car parks, and perhaps around your apartment block. These are the
lives lived by street cats - unwanted, unowned, and frequently uncared for. They are lives
that are poor, uncertain, unhealthy, and mostly short.

Rabbits are Bunny loving families wanted...
not throwaway
pets! They
need love and
attention and
are a ten year
commitment.

Rabbits make wonderful,
endearing pets but even
the best intentioned people
neglect their welfare. And
many a bunny, brought as a
pet, lives his life in loneness
and neglect in a hutch at the
bottom of the garden. If you
are thinking of adopting a
rabbit make sure that you
are prepared to make him
part of your family!

Some Myths about
rabbits and their care…

Myth 1: Rabbits are great,
low-maintenance starter
pets. WRONG! Although
they don't need to be walked
like dogs, rabbits are
anything but low-
maintenance. Their quarters
need daily cleaning, and
fresh food and water must be
offered daily, including a
salad of well-washed,
dark-green leafy vegetables.
Some rabbit health problems
can become chronic and
require regular veterinary
treatment.

CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO Myth 2: Rabbits only live a
Please call 9486-3133 for more information. year or two, so no long
term commitment is
necessary. WRONG! Well
cared-for indoor rabbits can
live 7-10 years, and some
live into their teens. This is
approximately the same life
span as some breeds of
dogs, and requires the same
long-term commitment.

Myth 3: Rabbits do not
need veterinary care the
way dogs and cats do.
WRONG! Yearly
vaccinations are a must for
protection against calici
virus.

Companion rabbits should
be spayed/neutered by
veterinarians experienced in
rabbit surgery. This not only
reduces hormone-driven
behaviors such as lunging,
mounting, spraying, and
boxing, but also protects
females from the risk of
uterine cancer, the incidence
of which can exceed 50%
as rabbits grow older.

Still want to adopt a
rabbit? Then why not
adopt two…

Rabbits love companionship
and another bunny to
snuggle up to. Doggie
Rescue has a selection of
adorable, well handled
bunnies who would love to
start the new year with a
loving, gentle family.
