Kids are usually unprepared to be responsible for pet, especially one that requires as much care as a rabbit. Parents will have to be the caretakers and overseers of how the bunny is cared for. Please be a responsible parent and be prepared for the time and effort it will take.
Please find out if you or your child has an allergy BEFORE adopting a rabbit.
Multi-species households can co-exist peaceably. Please evaluate your plans and decide if it’s a good time to bring home a new pet.
Do you have three hours of free time each day? Rabbits need at least 2 hours of exercise every day. Set aside around an hour for clean-up, and to groom, feed and water your bunny.
Pets are family. Remember this before bringing a pet into your home. Are you prepared to change your life to care for another living being just as you would a child?
No one remains a baby. Think about this before bringing a baby bunny home, or better yet adopt an already full-grown rabbit from a shelter.
Pet ownership doesn't stop when it becomes inconvenient. Please find a suitable pet-sitter or kennel for your bunny when going out of town. A rewarding relationship with your bunny can only develop over time.
When you bring home a pet you are making a promise that you will care for him the rest of his life. If you cannot make a promise like this do not bring home a pet. Pets are family members.
Classroom rabbits are not good for the kids or for the rabbit. Please stop the inhumane practice of keeping classroom pets.
