The Bunnery is air-conditioned and set at a comfortable, constant temperature all year round. Rabbits are housed entirely indoors in individual pens where they are safe and secure. This special facility is also mosquito- proof to prevent exposure to myxomatosis and calicivirus. Both these infections are fatal to rabbits and are carried by biting insects.
Rabbits are housed entirely indoors to prevent exposure to disease as well as extremes of heat and cold. There are play runs within the building and everyone has a daily time out for a hop, stretch and snuffle around.
Rabbits have continual access to food which is checked and refreshed several times a day.
We give a generous helping of a variety of vegies. This is a mixture of leafy greens and herbs along with a small amount of carrot, capsicum, kumara as well as fresh fruits and berries for a treat.
A generous supply of good quality oaten, rye or meadow hay is always available.
We also feed an appropriate serve of Oxbow Rabbit, our pellet of choice twice a day. Pellets are sprinkled on the hay to provide entertainment in the forage for food.
As rabbits may be sensitive to any change in diet, we are happy to feed whatever pellets you provide.
The Bunnery is a separate facility, completely enclosed and distant from the kennels and cattery. There is absolutely no exposure to cats and dogs.
You are welcome to bring belongings from home. No Gucci or Prada please, as things can disappear into the washing machine, never to be seen again!
Feel free visit from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm from Monday to Saturday. By 10 am, we have finished the daily cleaning routine and are looking spic and span – for the shortest of times until our party animals undo all the good work!!
