Rabbit care

Rabbits can make incredibly good pets but they have very specific needs. Before you buy a rabbit you need to be sure you have the space, time and money needed to raise a happy, healthy rabbit.

Rabbits can live up to 12 years — that is a huge commitment. If the rabbit is for your children, will they go to university in the rabbit's lifetime? Will they become bored? If the rabbit is for you, will you always have the large amount of space that a rabbit needs? Think about everything and do your research.
