Conditions of Sale

Thank you for considering one of my baby bunnies 🙂

My bunnies are pure mini lops and come with a minimum of three generations of known pedigree and corresponding pedigree documents. No crosses will be found here. 

I put a lot of time and effort into raising these baby bunnies to ensure they will make excellent pets. I’m sure you can understand that I will want to make sure that my babies are going to loving homes that will provide for their bunnies needs and give them their precious time, love and adequate housing. This will ensure that your bunny is happy and healthy which will enable you to get the most from your beloved pet.

I do ask that prospective bunny owners familiarise themselves with the RSPCA’s guide on owning a bunny, especially the bunnies housing requirements found here. Providing a bunny with enough space does not have to cost the earth, see Ideal Bunny Homes. Providing toys and entertainment, including litter trays can cost almost nothing too. Once you have your bunny, you’ll be amazed at how much you can find at car boots, charity shops and pound shops, all things to entertain your bunny and essential items such as food bowls and washing up bowls as excellent litter trays (I will write a blog post on this, I think). This is especially useful if you are on a budget. We have a (spare) hutch which was built from a pallet crate and pallets!

My bunnies will be suitable as indoor or outdoor pets as they will be using a litter tray as does their mummy.

I will ask to see your housing (a photo) before you leave with a bunny. This isn’t to be nosey. I have a duty as a responsible breeder to ensure the bunnies welfare and be a guide to prospective owners on housing if they need help (the minimum is 6ft x 2ft x 2ft for two bunnies and not much smaller for one). This doesn’t have to be the size of the hutch, if the bunnies have regularly daily access to an attached run. Bunny should also be able to stand on their hind feet and have enough room to stretch upwards fully. Again, if you are on a budget, rabbit housing doesn’t have to cost the earth, you just need to shop around and hopefully I can help you, see Ideal Bunny Homes. Here is how and where I keep some of my bunnies Our Bunny House. Indoor rabbits still need their own hutch/cage. Often, cages advertised as rabbit cages are no where near big enough. Check the dimensions.

I offer a 5 day guarantee for your bunny but you MUST follow the advice on the care sheet I send home with you and bunny. This advice is catered to your individual bunny. Moving home will be a stressful time for your bunny and can be a critical time too. I will send home enough change over food for a week and this is to ensure bunnies tummy is not upset. Do not feed any fresh produce during the time. Stick to hay, water and grass. After a week or two, slowly introduce grass, then after another week introduce small amounts of dark leafy greens and weeds. Remember, a bunny who doesn’t eat/poo in 24 hours is a very poorly bunny. So, changing their diet at the same time as a house move is NOT advisable and will void your guarantee. I can not be held responsible for vets bills. You must bring the bunny back to me and I will treat bunny myself or seek medical attention. 

If your bunny is an indoor/outdoor bunny please stick to that. In the summer its fine to bring either one inside or outside. However, in the winter, bringing an outdoor bunny inside and vise versa can seriously disrupt the bunnies ability to regulate its own temperature (due to our central heating systems and drastic temp changes) and bunny can die from over heating (presented in fits). In winter, be aware that bunny bottles will freeze.

I will ask for a deposit to secure the bunny of your choice. If you do not collect your bunny on the day arranged, without prior notice or explanation, or if you do not contact me to arrange collection and do not respond to my messages then I am forced to put bunny back up for sale within 3 days of no communication. Everyone’s situation can change and I would just appreciate to be kept in the picture so I can ensure I can tell someone else waiting for a bunny that there is a bunny now available.

Bunnies are usually ready at 8 weeks of age, although rarely it may be necessary to hold a bunny back for a little while longer. I reserve the right to refuse to give someone one of my bunnies.

As a responsible breeder, it is my duty to offer a home to any of my bunnies should their owners circumstances change for whatever reason and can no longer provide a home for bunny. I will do everything possible to take bunny back. I will then do my best to find a suitable and loving home for the bunny if I do not keep bun myself.

I will keep the New Litters & Bunnies for Sale page upto date with how your bunny is growing and new litters etc. I will post weekly updates on my facebook page of baby bunnies. If you do not have Facebook, please inform me so I can email these updates to you personally, once you have reserved your bunny.

Facebook/social media links here.

If you have any questions or would like to enquire about reserving a bunny please contact me using the informaton here and I will reply as soon as possible (for the quickest response you can call, text or email).

Please do familiarise yourself with the website as I have tried to share as much as possible about caring for bunnies. I am adding more and more to the site constantly.

Thank you very much for reading this information, I really do appreciate it.
