omg no no dont get me wrong i love the rabbits i have now to death, they were born in my house iv been with them in every step ( their first time they opened their eyes, walked ,ate regular food, first time in the garden... etc.) so u can just imagin how much i love them, for the last 5 monthes and 1 week iv been with these rabbits every single day for atleast 5 min.
so if caramela is pregnant i will let her give birth in my house and take care of her and the babies until their atleast a couple of weeks old and then give them to a shelter
Ok, so you are allowing a brother and sister rabbit to breed (Known as inbreeding) and produce more animals that you are going to place in all already full shelter.
What part of that do you think is responsible?
but the problem is that my parents will not let me get them spayed/neu. what so ever ( i dont even no why)
… hoefully next yr when i get my car and have enough money…
They are your responsibility, not your parents. If you are getting a car, which is a LOT more costly then a rabbit spay or neuter, then you can afford to alter at least one of those animals.
also carmela hasnt let anyone carry her since then except me of course cuz they trust me and usually female rabbits wont let anyone carry them when pregnent.
Bogus information, absolutely not true.
the reason i want to give them to that shelter is because my friend works thei and she sees how they treat the rabbits their right when a rabbit is taken in they send them to a doctor and the doctor gives the rabbit everything it need ( neu.,shots etc.) and then gives it to the shelter so if i give them my rabbits they will check them and make sure their not sick and neu. them and make sure that my babies are healthy and thats something i wish i can do but unfortunaly i cant at this moment ( u kow ow i believe the phrase that says " if u cant afford the vet then dont get a pet" so true) so these rabbits are my life and i rather see them happy and healthy then see them sad and fighting with each other.
I run a rabbit shelter, I have over 50 Rabbits in my care there, all of which have been dropped off because someone thought they’d have a better life in a shelter. 50 rabbits do not get 1 on 1 time, they do get to see a vet, but what do you think they would rather have, a trip to the Vet or a loving family?
Our rabbits are at least in a rabbit only shelter, so they don’t have to hear the ongoing barking or meowing of dogs and cats.
and the thing about the netherland dwarfs is cuz their are 3 five week old bunnies in the shelter and the mommy died like last week and all the rabbits they have are like really big ones ( rex and giant something rabbits they also have 2 dutches but compared to the dwarfs they are huge right now.) so i felt bad for them and my friend and i have decieded to adopt them i get 2 and shes 1 but were next door neighbors and share the same backyard so the rabbits wont be seperated but shes willing to take all 3 but if something happens with my dutch rabbits ( fight or something) she'll give me 2 to take cuz im better with rabbits but if i keep my dutch ( hopefully) she keeps all 3 and of course ill be able to see them and hopefully when i get my babies spayed we can boned all 5 togather so our babies can be neigbors too lol
And in 5 years when you two are in College or moved away, who will have the rabbits then?
5 week old baby bunnies (if they survive w/out their mother) will have a much better chance of getting adopted then your two full grown bunnies (one of which will give birth to an inbred litter of more bunnies, to take up more space in a shelter), why take away the young bunnies chance for a life with a family who is willing to spay/neuter them and afford them Vet care when they needed?
The right thing to do?
Separate your bunnies. Keep them in cages side by side. Save up, take back bottles or whatever it takes to save up the $150 or so to get your male neutered. Even ask the shelter if they would neuter your rabbit for you, many shelters will help those who need it if it means they don't have to take in another animal.
Once he’s neutered you can put them back together and they will no longer fight one another, nor will they produce any more unwanted inbred rabbits.
It's not my intention to upset you with this, it is hard facts from experience.
