Looking for your new best friend? Take the time to research, for the health and well being of your new pet.
Rabbits come in many shapes and sizes, have specific cage and feeding requirements, and are not just a back yard pet
to be ignored. Make sure the "breeder" can provide you with change over feed, comprehensive information and support. Do they
vaccinate against calici virus and do they worm and treat for coccidiosis? Don't forget they also need to be vaccinated and
desexed, as a happy healthy pet.
For Club recognised breeders, breeding show quality pure bred rabbits for exhibition
purposes, please contact The SA Rabbit Fanciers Society.
There are many breeds of pure bred rabbits available, including:
Miniature Lop, Dwarf Lop, Cashmere Lop, Netherland Dwarf, Satin, Silver Fox, British Giant, Tan, Dutch, Californian, Standard
Are you buying from a "registered" breeder? There is no such thing in the rabbit Fancy, though we do have Club
recognised members who abide by Codes of Ethics and competitively exhibit their rabbits regularly.
Are you buying
from a legitimately registered stud? Check the national database for registered prefixes
If their name isn't listed, ask who they exhibit their rung rabbits with then verify with that Club.

Rabbit breeders and pet owners - please be aware of the risk of
rabbit related diseases such as myxomatosis & rabbit calicivirus in this warm humid weather.
TSARFS have received
reports of unexplained rabbit deaths and myxo cases in: Coromandel Valley, Parafield Gardens, Salisbury East, Para Hills,
Eudunda, Callington/Mt Barker, Springton. These diseases are released state wide to control the feral rabbit population and
DO NOT distinguish between pet and feral rabbits. No one is immune and no one is to blame.
We can not vaccinate rabbits
against myxomatosis. We can however vaccinate via your local vet for rabbit calicivirus. Rabbit kittens are not protected
Prevention is our only means - fly wire all rabbit cages, use misting automatic fly control and
repellent plants. Keep water sources to a minimum, and reduce mosquito breeding areas. Keep cages clean and dry and not over
crowded. Flies also carry disease.
TSARFS cancel all rabbit displays and shows within a 10km radius of reported outbreaks
to protect our members and exhibitors.
For a free rabbit care sheet and more information aswell as rabbit friendly
vet contacts, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Disease transmission - insect vector - mosquitos, mites, fleas.
Prevention - no vaccination available. Fly wire cages, reduce water stores in the surrounding
environment, insect control devices.
|We use and highly recommend Back-2-Nature products for your rabbit.

Why do we exhibit rabbits?
Breeders learn via exhibition at rabbits shows. Breeders learn about type, quality, and better breeding
practices. Hands on and via comments at a rabbit show, with constructive criticisim, assists them to breed better, and healthier rabbits,
therefore healthier pets.
Club endorsed breeders abide by a code of ethics - rabbit
kittens are recommended to be sold from 10 weeks of age.
