Where's A Good Place To Find A Nice Pet Bunny Rabbit?
by Andrea Austin,
This entire chapter is devoted to a more in-depth consideration of the various places where you can buy or adopt a pet rabbit, and what to look for in each of the following categories. Now that you know how to pick a rabbit, read on to learn how to pick a pet seller or adoption center.
Most of us have been inside pet stores and know more or less what to expect. The good news is that pet shops are so ubiquitous that thereís probably one or more in your own town. It is easy to visit such stores and to buy animals quickly and, in many cases, relatively cheaply.
However, it is important to recognize that pet stores purchase animals from either private breeders or commercial breeders, or a combination of both. As a result, the quality of the animals available in pet shops is subject to variability. Commercial breeders donít care about the animals themselves; they care more about making a quick buck. Therefore, it is so important for you to review the guidelines in the previous chapter carefully before you buy a rabbit. Remember, it is possible to find perfectly healthy and happy rabbits in pet stores, but youíve got to be diligent and you must select carefully.
Moreover, in very commercial pet shops, the staff may not be very knowledgeable about the animalsóanother great reason for you to do your research beforehand. Even worse, the employees may have been trained to sell you the older, sicklier animals, because the store wants to get rid of them quickly. Be on your guard and donít let yourself get fooled into taking home an animal that is in ill-health or suffering in any way.
If you want to buy from a pet store, start by visiting a reputable shop with knowledgeable employees. Oftentimes, the smaller the store is, the better the sales staff knows the animals, and the more they can help you. At larger pet store chains, you may be out of luck.
Avoid pet stores in which the animals all seem unhappy or unhealthy. That signals mistreatment or neglect, and you donít want to bring home an abused or ill animal. Instead, try to find a pet shop in which the animals seem healthy, active, alert, clean, and well-fed.
All the rules apply here: make sure the animals appear healthy, clean, well taken care of, and content. Be wary if the family selling the animals doesnít seem to know much about breeding or how to care for rabbits. You want to buy from rabbit lovers, not people trying to make a few bucks.
