Vet Care during COVID for Special Needs Buns

During COVID,  Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage has struggled to meet the ongoing vet care costs for the rabbits with health challenges in their extensive foster care program.  They have operated successfully for 16 years, but the ongoing COVID pandemic has impacted their ability to fundraise, and with no assistance from government they face a crisis of not being able to provide the ongoing vet care for their most vulnerable charges.  Their foster program is the only one of its kind in Australia. 

Your contribution to this cause would mean that the charity can continue its valuable work looking after the most helpless and discarded animals like tiny Flur.

FLUR was surrendered at 6 weeks old due to her headtilt.  She is now in a loving home with a dedicated foster carer.

Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage has seen a continued increase for its services, with several prominent animal shelters seeking assistance with their intake of rabbits. These animals come with health or behavioral conditions that the mainstream shelters are not set up to manage.  The Orphanage has consolidated its partnerships with three specialist rabbit/exotic animal vet practices, who support the animals in its expanded foster care program to maximise the number of rabbits the organisation can assist like little Noel.

NOEL has maligned teeth and needs regular checkups and dental surgeries.  This little man is in a loving indoor home where his foster carer can closely monitor him. 

There are now over 200 animals being supported to live happy and productive lives.  While they live in permanent indoor homes with dedicated foster carers, the Orphanage continues to look after their vet care costs for tests, surgeries, emergency care and hospitalisations.  

CHARITY is the little bunny with no ears.  She was found and is now lives in a loving indoor home.

Some of the animals that the Orphanage has assisted are listed on their website under "VIB buns" , Very Important Bunnies

You can also sponsor some of their latest VIB buns through their virtual sponsorship

All the buns in the foster program are living their best lives with the help and support of the Orphanage.  With your help they can continue to provide for them.
