Finding Rabbits to Buy
Here are a few tips to consider when searching to find rabbits…
- Search Locally: It is important to begin searching for rabbits in your area. Although there are literally hundreds of different rabbit breeders listed in our directory, the majority of rabbit raisers do not ship their rabbits. So it is important that you take into consideration a rabbit breeder’s location before you contact them and request rabbits. Ideally, you would like to find bunnies for sale within a couple of hours’ driving distance.
- Choose your Breed Wisely: One of the most important decisions that you will ever make when raising rabbits is selecting your initial breed to purchase. Be sure that you take time to research the breed of rabbits that you are interested in purchasing beforehand. Different breeds are raised for different purposes and some breeds have their own unique care requirements.
- Purchase your Supplies First: I recommend that you purchase your rabbit supplies before buying your animals! I have seen quite a few people make the mistake of trying to cram their initial few rabbits into makeshift rabbit cages. Don’t compromise your rabbits’ safety by failing to prepare!!
- Get a Good Rabbit Book: Having a good rabbit book on hand is a good idea if you are even thinking about raising rabbits. I recommend that you grab a copy of Raising Rabbits 101 if you are indeed interested in getting started raising rabbits.
The rabbit buying process has a reputation for overwhelming the first-time rabbit raiser. Sometimes a rabbit enthusiast will fail to purchase a desired rabbit breed due to the fact that they are unable to locate any available stock. Many times people don’t even know where to begin looking for rabbits. Sometimes people take guess at where they should buy and later regret their decision.

Popular Places to Buy Rabbits From
- Pet Shops
- Flea Markets
- Rabbit Rescue Centers
- Backyard Rabbitry Breeders
- Dedicated Rabbit Fanciers & Hobbyists
One of the most popular places to buy pet rabbits seems to be the local pet store. You probably remember walking through the pet store as a little child looking at all the cute little animals. Maybe you still do! I remember the “pet store” used to be my favorite store in the entire mall to visit. Maybe you asked a family member multiple times… “Can I keep him.. He is sooo cute; yes of course I will take good care of him”.
Just like puppies, kittens, and mice, rabbits are frequently sold in pet stores to unprepared owners. Although they are a popular pet store animal I would not recommend buying them from a pet store. I have heard of multiple people who have had bad experiences with purchasing bunnies from pet stores. Unfortunately one of the reasons behind this is the fact, that pet store owners don’t tend to know very much about caring for rabbits. Sure they might know everything there is to know about dogs and cats but generally not rabbits.
Rabbits will frequently die after being brought home from pet stores due to a lack of care. Also, another factor behind the general poor health of pet store bunnies is the fact that they are usually taken off their mothers too early. Pet stores tend to want to buy “small” rabbits, many times “too small” of rabbits.
Conclusion: STAY AWAY FROM PET STORES
Another popular place to find bunnies is Flea Markets. I personally have never purchased rabbits from a Flea Market and quite frankly don’t intend to for the following reasons:
Reason 1: Normally Flea Market Rabbits are of mixed rabbit breeds, if you are thinking about ever showing your rabbits this is a bad idea. Also, most of the time rabbits found there will not be the ideal meat rabbit stock.
Reason 2: You do not know the history of where these bunnies came from. What were their previous living conditions? Are they truly healthy bunnies? Why did the breeder sell them? – For all, you know these rabbits could be the culls (undesirable ones) of a litter.
Reason 3: You will not be able to get pedigrees on your bunnies… the fact of the matter is Flea Market Rabbits generally have zero chance of coming with pedigrees. FYI, rabbit pedigrees are an essential part of record keeping.
Reason 4: You will not be able to contact the breeder with questions… this is an important advantage of buying from a rabbit fancier.
Conclusion: Yes, Flea Markets might be a great place to find cheap rabbits however I strongly recommend that you look elsewhere for rabbits.
Rabbit Rescue Centers
Rabbit Rescue Centers are generally good places for adopting a rabbit. Often you can save a life by deciding to adopt a bunny.
One thing I want to point out about shelters and rescue centers is the fact most of the bunnies would not be suitable for showing or breeding for meat. In fact, many rabbits taken to shelters are automatically spayed or neutered.
Conclusion: If you want to try and help an abandoned bunny find a lost home, shelters may work great for you. If you are looking for breeding rabbits or show stock – this is definitely not a good option.
Backyard Rabbitry Breeders
One of the better places to buy rabbits is from Backyard Rabbitry Breeders. These breeders tend to be small-time rabbit raisers and usually keep between three and twenty rabbits at a time.
They generally know at least the minimal information needed to care for their bunnies properly. So on average rabbits bought from them will be in better health.
Conclusion: Backyard Rabbit Breeders are one of the better places to find rabbits. My best recommendation however is to buy from serious rabbit hobbyists and fanciers.
Dedicated Rabbit Fanciers & Hobbyists
My number one recommendation regarding buying rabbits… is to buy from Serious Rabbit Hobbyists and Fanciers. These are the dedicated people who normally have larger rabbitries and generally know a lot more about their breeds.
These are the type of people who will frequently go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need to care for your bunnies.
Conclusion: Buy from serious rabbit hobbyists and fanciers, although you will most likely have to pay more for your bunnies this way, I can almost guarantee that “the investment” will be worth it in the long run.
Things to Consider Before Buying a Rabbit
Rabbits make great pets for people of all ages, but before you bring one home, there are some important things to consider.
1. Housing: Rabbits need a safe and secure place to live. A cage or hutch with a solid bottom is best. It should be large enough for the rabbit to move around comfortably and have a separate area for sleeping. Make sure to provide plenty of soft bedding and a litter box.
2. Diet: Rabbits need a diet that is high in fiber and low in fat and protein. Fresh hay should make up the bulk of their diet, with fresh greens and a small amount of pellets added in. Avoid giving them too many treats or table scraps.
3. Exercise: Rabbits need plenty of exercise to stay healthy. A large exercise pen or enclosed area for them to run and play in is ideal. You can also train your rabbit to walk on a leash or play with toys.
4. Grooming: Rabbits need regular grooming to keep their fur clean and healthy. They should be brushed at least once a week, and their nails should be trimmed regularly.
5. Health care: Rabbits need regular visits to a veterinarian who is experienced in treating them. They are prone to certain health conditions, such as dental problems and gut stasis, so it’s important to stay on top of their care.
6. Cost: Owning a rabbit can be relatively inexpensive, but there are still costs to consider. You will need to purchase a cage or hutch, food, bedding, and other supplies. You will also need to budget for regular veterinary check-ups.
7. Time: You will also need to invest time and energy into taking care of your rabbit. They need daily attention and care, including feeding, cleaning, and playtime.
By considering these factors before buying a pet rabbit, you will be better prepared to provide the care and attention your new companion needs to thrive. With proper care, a rabbit can make a loving and rewarding pet for years to come.

Pet Rabbit Supplies Checklist
It is important to make sure you have all the necessary supplies to keep your new pet happy and healthy. Here is a checklist of essential rabbit supplies:
Hutch or cage: Your rabbit will need a safe and secure place to call home. A hutch or cage should be spacious enough for your rabbit to stretch out and move around comfortably. A good rule of thumb is to have at least four square feet of space per rabbit.
Bedding: Rabbits need a soft and comfortable place to sleep. The best bedding options for rabbits include straw, hay, or shredded paper. Avoid using cedar or pine shavings as they can be harmful to rabbits.
Food and water dishes: You will need a food dish for your rabbit’s daily diet of hay, vegetables, and a small amount of rabbit pellets. A water bottle or bowl is also necessary. Make sure both dishes are made of durable and non-toxic materials.
Litter box: Rabbits are clean animals and can be litter trained. A litter box filled with recycled paper litter, alfalfa pellets or other soft, non-clumping litter will be necessary.
Toys: Rabbits need to have things to do to keep them entertained and mentally stimulated. Some great options include chew toys, tunnels, and balls.
Grooming supplies: Grooming your rabbit is important to keep them healthy and clean. A good brush, nail clippers, and shampoo are essential.
Hay: Hay should be the mainstay of a rabbit’s diet. It is essential for their digestion and dental health. Fresh hay should be available at all times.
Pellets: Feeding your rabbit a small amount of rabbit pellets as a supplement to hay and vegetables.
Vegetables: Fresh vegetables should be included in a rabbit’s diet for extra vitamins and minerals. Some good options include carrots, broccoli, and lettuce.
First aid kit: It’s always a good idea to have a first aid kit on hand in case of emergencies. Make sure it includes bandages, antibiotic ointment, and other essentials.
By following this checklist, you can ensure that your new rabbit has everything it needs to be happy and healthy. Remember, rabbits are social animals, so consider getting a friend for your rabbit if possible. With proper care and attention, your rabbit can be a wonderful companion for years to come.
