THE fate of the Olinda bunny orphanage will be decided in July.
Last December, Yarra Ranges Council refused Bryce and Judi Inglis a permit to continue operating the Rabbit Runaway Orphanage at their Stanley St property, after residents raised concerns about it.
The couple has now taken their fight to the Victorian Civil and Ad Leg 1 ministrative Tribunal, where it is due to be heard on July 26.
Since the couple’s plight was made public, over 2000 people have signed an online petition to save the shelter.
