I recently found an ad on kijiji that a local hobby farmer was "getting out of the meat rabbit business", and I told my husband about it.
Normally, we would try not to 'buy' a living being because not only are we not into the slave market (as apposed to adoption) but we don't want to support people in harming yet more animals. Since this person was getting out of the business I was thinking that there was two options... either he would sell his rabbits to someone who might eat or breed them or he would eat them himself. Since he won't be getting more we jumped on it.
I left it to my husband to go pick up the two rabbits we decided we had room for, knowing full well I would take them ALL otherwise. Well, that didn't go as planned because when Chris came home, with the two we decided on, he tells me that three more are coming the following weekend. (Haha.. I was thrilled of course!!) He told me with tears in his eyes, "I looked around and couldn't leave them there". (Isnt he the greatest??)
Here are some photos over the past week of our little darlings... all females so we won't contribute to the population. Clover and Meadow came first and then their sisters Rosie, Freyja and Brigid.
For more photos, or to follow the sanctuary 'happenings, please see our Facebook page. I also have Snapchat for those who want to see some high raw food choices, sanctuary photos etc ( witchy-Kim ).

|They not only have never had so much space but never experienced shavings, only a wood floor|
|Never experienced the ground, dirt or grass. Until now.|

|Already been with us a week here, grass is old news|
