I recently visited a rabbit rehoming sanctuary as they had a chocolate Dutch which I'd always liked. There were 27 rabbits in need of homing. Apparently some had been there almost two years. I was given the run down about how much it costs to run the place and how some of the buns would never find a loving home etc.....now what I find curious is why the owner of this sanctuary actually breeds the rabbits and sells them on.....should she do so or concentrate on rehoming those which were 'dumped' on her? I can understand breeding and selling pedigree rabbits as a way of supplementing the sanctuary's income but these were total crossbred....just curious.
Wait, wait... so they are breeding mix breed rabbits and selling them? But they also own a rabbit rescue with plenty of rabbits that still need homes? That is just plain stupid in my opinion... if I read it all right, that is. lol
Ken your comments are interesting....re the healthy meat etc....my cholesterol levels are sky high apparently and my doc put me on some magic pills....I had to speak to some dietician who basically told me to cut out all meat except.....pheasant and.......rabbit......I don't know of any friendly game keeper......
These kind of rescues confuse me. In the UK it seems very divided. There are the rescue people (more like animal activists) who think breeding and showing is completely wrong, and all rabbits should be neutered, in groups, living in sheds. And then there's the breeders, who just leave the rescue 'idiots' well alone.
