Did you know that you don't have to buy a rabbit, but you can adopt it?

Rabbits in pet stores are usually picked up from the rabbit mother too early - so that people succumb to the small, downy ball and buy it. Yes, that's true - pet stores are only for profit. If you want a rabbit, you know the expenses, advantages and disadvantages associated with it, and you are sure that you will cope, then it is better to adopt a rabbit than buy it.

Adoption of a rabbit

I will tell you a short story - a small, spoiled girl got a beautiful, tiny bunny. She looked after him as she looked after, but one day she came up with a brilliant idea - I will take a rabbit to a friend. It is a pity that she did not think to put it in the transporter, provide hay or other food on the road, just put it under the sweatshirt and went. Along the way, a dog attacked her and sensed a rabbit. The rabbit got scared and ran away.
Then a wonderful woman with a golden heart found him who runs temporary homes for rabbits from this place I would like to thank very much Mr. Małgorzata, who took care of the rabbit and thanks to whom he is now with us. Thank you also for the great patience with my questions. Thank you also to Julita, who made sure that the adoption was carried out in accordance with the procedures. Women like you are a treasure!
We also thank Gosia, who helped us transport Semir to the door. We couldn't have done it without you! The owners of the rabbit bothered about the offers of his escape, but after talking to them, it turned out that they had bought a new toy and were not interested in the previous rabbit.
Semir rabbit

I have long considered having a rabbit. I read the entire thumbnail of bezzjemjemnic.com from cover to cover. One day I came across a page with adoptions of rabbits run by SPK- Rabbit Aid Association. There I saw Boniface. I fell in love at first sight. Together with my fiance, we decided to adopt. We completed the adoption application and waited for a response. There were a few people willing, but the adoption conversation showed that we would get it. The most beautiful day in my life is the one when we went to pick up a pet. I was wondering all the way how everything would change now.

Bonifacy got a new name, which we think suits him better - Semir :) The animal has been with us for half a year, we have castration behind us, which was the most stressful event that we have behind us so far. Two removals are a pick, because our pet may not wake up. Fate, however, wanted differently, Semir is safe and sound with us.
I know that we could buy a rabbit in the store, but when we adopt a pet we have a wonderful little soul in our apartment that, God forbid, it could be elsewhere. Every day, thank you for being with us, even when he bites the bars of a cage at 4 in the morning like a possessed;) This story is not intended to promote SPK or anything. I am not affiliated with SPK (actually I am through adoption, but that's another matter);)

I want to show you that a rabbit is not a toy, but also that through adoption you can help rabbits that really need your help. Many of them wait a long time for the new owner. Semir no longer needs help, but other rabbits from SPK do.

If you can't become a rabbit home, you can adopt virtuallyor become volunteers. Don't be afraid to help!

    Semir has two friends guinea pigs Julian and Octavian, one of them is from an adoption from a similar place: Guinea Pig Aid Association, he also recommends this place. It's good that more and more people are "aware"! Bravo for the post and greetings from piglets. MOJK

      Exactly - and very badly Octavian made friends;)
      Thank you, best regards with P. and Semir :)

    I'm on Cb for the first time 😉 Super blog 😉
    I have heard about SPK a long time ago, I was about to adopt, but I bought jednak
    I also have a bunny (Tosia) who is a beloved pet despite biting those bars in a cage 😀

      At least the cables don't bite ... Semir after castration got some phase on the cables ... I don't know what's going on, but I don't like it too much ...

      I'm glad you like the D&P blog. We invite you to visit more often :))

    Stowarzyszenie Pomocy Królików is a great organization - dynamic and full of people with big (ears) hearts.

    I adopted my rabbit from ... my brother when he left for Great Britain. Siwaczek is an Angora and has not lived with us for a year (she is 9 years old, so she is in a well-deserved rabbit retirement in the parents' forester's lodge).

    I am glad that you promote the idea of ​​adoption - it is also worth telling children about it and making you realize that you are a rabbit / dog hero who saved your life. Children like to feel heroic. We teach Zuzia what responsibility is and how people are cruel to animals.

    Good luck with Semir, because rabbits have a special character 😉

    I didn't think there was such a thing ... But I support 100% as well as adoptions and thoughtful selection of other animals. 🙂

    Thank you very much for this material! I also adopted the ear yesterday, even though I already have one. My Edward was found by the Municipal Police in the basement, in a small cage, all pissed, starved and scared. I have a rabbit bought at home when I was a toddler, so I have a comparison. Adopted rabbits need warmth and love badly. That is why (after getting used to the situation) they are much more cuddly. They stick to the man and follow him. It is gratitude for saving .. This is not felt by the ears of the store ..

      I have never had experience in caring for a shop rabbit, but what you write about the need for love is definitely true. From the beginning Semir wanted to hug and stroke. I don't think he had it in the previous house :( I also think that adoptive rabbits need more forgiveness, after all some have their traumas - Semir e.g. is very afraid of the sound of opening / closing the dishwasher.

    I have never heard of SPK and rabbit adoptions. It's nice that you make people aware of something like this 🙂 I unfortunately do not plan to buy a rabbit but I gladly read your post 🙂

      Thank you :) I hope that thanks to this I will be able to help some small, defenseless little souls :)
      If you do not plan to buy a bunny - you can always adopt one in need virtually;)
