Turtle and Midnight have spent the last 12 months in a tiny cage by the side of the road, standing on 4cm of their own droppings and getting no play time. They have been terrorised by dogs and been given no care or love from anyone except the comfort they have given each other.
A kind woman, Mary, has rescued them and taken the scared little girls into her home. But she already has 2 rescue rabbits, other animals and is suffering from cancer. She has too much on her plate to take them in permanently but has done such a wonderful job so far.
We are looking for some kind, caring people to take the two girls in short term or long term and provide a safe indoor space and let them adjust to a more comfortable, secure lifestyle (not in a cage!)
Please contact Clare at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0405175511

Cherry is at one of the most outstanding shelters in Australia:The Sydney Dogs and Cats Home. These wonderful people are part of the Getting 2 Zero Movement which aims to have a no kill policy for animals going through the system and concentrates more on getting the images and stories of the animals out so they can be rehomed. Please, if you are looking to support a larger shelter, choose these guys over the RSPCA and remember that their adoption fees are higher because they do not get the immense funding RSPCA do and need your support more.

The babies are now 5 weeks old and eating fresh greens, hay and oxbow young pellets. They are super happy and jumpy little guys with round tummies and so much fluff! I have had to give them all butt and tummy trims because its too long under there and gets matted! Each day is a new joy watching them binky and dart around- I feel very very blessed. They are still drinking Mama Winifred's milk but it is a loud, squirming affair as they are getting so big now and find it hard to squeeze under there together! I bet Mama Winifred can't wait for that to be over- 3 weeks and she can go off to get desexed and get her body back to herself (besides all that cuddling!!) I love how close bunnies are to each other- most of my photos are inspired by walking by and seeing them in a new configuration of snuggley nap bliss. Check out the latest pictures-my favourite being the baby bunny yawning!
Foster carer Clare from Sydney Pet Rescue and adoption. To put in an expression of interest for these bunnies, please e-mail email@example.com. We are looking for foster carers to foster a pair in about 5 weeks time.

You know, it seems like I’ve been asked this question a lot lately. Why did I choose pet rabbits? Why do I choose to help rescue rabbits? They’re a lot of work. They take up a lot of my time. People see them as “children’s pets”. You can get one for $15. Why not just get a dog or a cat? Yes, I’ve heard it all. If you’ve never had a pet rabbit (really had a pet rabbit – not one confined to an outdoor hutch), the answer is difficult to put into words.
I don’t know what it was at the moment I laid eyes on the bunny that was to become Zoie, my first rabbit. I was in a pet store, and there were all these cute baby bunnies running around. My eyes just locked in on him. I knew that he was mine. I don’t know why. There was just something about him. Some little girl asked the pet store worker if she could hold him, and I watched in agony. I was terrified that the little girl would take him home. He was MY rabbit!! Well, obviously the little girl didn’t take him. Yes, my first bunny was an impulse pet store purchase, which makes me cringe now, but Zoie is the one that started it all.
I muddled through learning proper rabbit care via the internet and a rabbit-savvy vet. I learned that Zoie’s cage was too small. I learned he needed to be neutered. I got a crash course in nursing a sick bunny. My poor Zoie was very acquainted with the vet. Despite everything he went through, his sweet, trusting spirit remained. He fought so hard through so many illnesses, and when he finally couldn’t fight any more, I was devastated.
All of my bunnies since Zoie have been rescues....
