2. We require that you have done the proper research on rabbits on rabbit.org and are familiar with the educational links we have provided on our website.. 


BE PREPARED AS

WE WILL ASK YOU QUESTIONS ABOUT PROPER RABBIT CARE AND IF YOU HAVE NOT PROPERLY RESEARCHED RABBITS WE WILL BE ABLE TO TELL BY YOUR ANSWERS SO PLEASE DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP OR YOU WILL NOT BE ADOPTING A RABBIT FROM US AND IF WE MEET WITH YOU WITH OUT YOU HAVING DONE THIS YOU MAY DISQUALIFIED FROM ADOPTING FROM US IN THE FUTURE.


3. You must be familiar with our housing requirements ahead of time (and prove that you have the proper set up by receipt - however we prefer that you do NOT purchase a cage, food, or anything prior to adopting because we want you to get the correct products) or we will NOT make an appointment to meet with you.
