Adopt Don't Shop
If you are here to find out more information on adoption, we applaud you. By adopting a rescue animal, you will change their life for the better and help us in our mission to find loving forever homes for hundreds of deserving animals each year. When you choose to adopt, you are not only improving the life of your new fur friend, you are helping us make room to save more animals that are in need of rescue.
With proper diet and medical care, rabbits can live 8-12 years or more but they do require special care so before you adopt a rabbit be sure you are prepared to feed, house and offer attention to them for their entire lifetime.
We have compiled some basic information on what to consider when looking to adopt a rabbit or two into your family. Please take the time to read over our rabbit advice pages especially if you are new to the idea of owning a rabbit.
To inquire about one of our rabbits, we ask that you firstly summit an online application to help us in determining if there is a potential match between you and the animal that you wish to enquired about. Following this, potential matches are then contacted over the phone to discuss more and to arrange an in-home meet and greet at the foster carers home so that you can meet your potential new fur friend in an environment that is familiar and safe to them.
Our adoption process is not a first in best dressed scenario and we allow multiple applicants to meet our animals to ensure we make the best decisions for their futures.
Adopt an animal, save a life and add to your loving family today!
Things to Consider
It’s important that you take into consideration that your new family member will need sufficient time to settle into their forever home. Before adopting, ask yourself, do you have a small room to set up base camp and do you have the time to help settle them in? This may include ensuring the first few days, you are home with them.
If you’re going away shortly after you plan to adopt, please mention this in your application as we will discuss the best time to look into adoption. If you’re going away in the future, do you have someone who can look after your pets or a plan of where they will stay?
When adopting a new pet, you will need to take the time to slowly introduce them to an existing pet. We have guidelines on how this needs to be done and this process needs to be followed to give both animals the best chance at becoming friendly towards each other. A rushed process may lead to a failed introduction and furthermore, a failed adoption. Please be prepared to take the necessary time and steps for a safe and happy introduction.
Adopting an animal is a huge commitment, in most cases this will be 15 – 20+ years. Ask yourself, are you ready to commit to caring for an animal for this long.
Veterinary visits are an essential part of owning an animal and unfortunately, just like humans, animals will get sick too. You will need to be prepared for an annual check-up, annual vaccination and any potential illnesses that may arise and require treatment to keep your family member happy and healthy.
Look who is available for Adoption
Yes. All of our cats/kittens have been desexed before they they are adopted out to their forever homes.
Immunisations are started at 6-8 weeks of age and are repeated every 3-4 weeks until the kitten is 4 months old, they are to give your cat/kitten to best healthy start in life. The routine or core vaccinations will protect your kitten and cat from the most common diseases: feline distemper (panleukopenia), feline viral rhinotracheitis (feline herpes virus 1), calicivirus, and rabies.
We will ensure they have their vaccinations up until you adopt, it will be your responsibility to ensure your new pet is up to date with any vaccinations.
We will be able to provide you with as much information as possible on their background and how they have come into our care. In many cases, it may be difficult to know as some may have been abandoned or been on the streets.
Pets are re-homed for all kinds of reasons, so we ask you to try to stay objective when faced with a response.
For example, if a cat was surrendered for scratching furniture, it doesn’t mean he’s a bad cat. However, you should evaluate whether you’re prepared to invest the time and energy in correcting this behaviour
Knowing and understanding why a cat/kitten was surrendered to us may help you anticipate and prepare for any potential problems that may arise when integrating him into your family and home.
Remember, they all need to love and attention to grow and learn.
This is a great question if you have or are planing on getting more pets.
All of out cats/kittens have been in foster care for a period of time. In some foster care homes allows us to preform behaviour tests to see whether the cats/kittens in their care are reactive to other animals. This may not always be the case though, we will try our best to match the right personalities to multi animal homes & provide support to new owners on how to do a slow introduction to existing pets.
Alternative fostering a cat is another option. You’ll be able to see if the cat fits into your home before formally adopting. In the unlikely event that he or she is not a fit for your family, you will be able to provide valuable insight to their temperament and behaviour so we can find the right home to adopt to.
Knowing this answer will certainly save you from any surprises when you get home.
If your cat is not trained, you should ask yourself if you're willing to have a good litter training plan to help with training your new pet.
Don't let this be a deal breaker, with time and patients, your new pet will be using their litter trays.
