A popular and unfortunate misconception about rabbits is that they belong in cages for their entire lives. By nature, rabbits do a lot of running, far more than their predatory counterparts, and keeping them in a cage is as inhumane as keeping a dog or a cat in a cage their whole lives. Part of our mission is to educate owners and prospective owners on the proper habitat for a pet rabbit. The examples below show different degrees of quality of life, but the best way to treat a pet bunny is the same way you'd treat any other species of pets: let them roam the house free!
The Bare Minimum
A Step Up
Many pictures and videos of 'do-it-yourself' rabbit condos are available online and on Pinterest. They are easy and inexpensive to build and rabbits love multi-level condos! The above is a Neat Cube Condo.
All habitats must have a soft cotton mat over the flooring so that your rabbit has a comfortable and cushioned area to sit and lay down on.
And for those that can the ideal home...give them a room of their very own!
We are always more than happy to explain how to set up a free-roam environment for your rabbit, and it is as easy as for any other animal. Rabbits are litterbox-trainable just like any dog or cat and keep their homes clean. The main things to keep in mind are that rabbits need a nonslippery floor to run on (carpets are best), and humans need to bunnyproof their homes so that no cords or chewable objects are exposed.
