Billy Baggins came to the sanctuary in February 2017. He had been found in the backyard of a Big Ears volunteer, all alone, very young and very easy to catch. It was because of this that we initially thought there was something wrong with him but it turned out he was healthy, it may have been his nest was disturbed by predators.
It wasn’t long before we discovered Billy loved sitting and sleeping in a hammock. He spends a lot of the day in the hammock sleeping in the sun. He is very very friendly and just loves cuddle time with Jacqui.
Phillip is one of 6 bunnies that travelled from Victoria in December 2014 to have their forever home here at Big Ears as a family. They had been living with an elderly person who passed away and their carer wanted them to live in an outdoor environment. At that time there were no outside sanctuaries for rabbits in Victoria due to foxes.
Wetherby came to the sanctuary in 2009 from the Devonport RSPCA. He had been found wandering in the suburbs and nobody claimed him.
He currently lives with five girl buns who keep him warm in winter with lots of snuggling and generally spoil him rotten.
Parker was part of a 21 rabbit rescue. He arrived at the Sanctuary December 2013.
He lives with four brothers from the same rescue.
Sponsorship of Parker is $50 per year which goes towards his vaccination, health checks and parasite control.
Chocolate arrived in 2015 after being surrendered with her friend as their owner could no longer care for them.
They both live together at the Sanctuary in the same pen.
In December 2016 Apollo came fromt the North West Coast after a person’s cat brought her inside. The person couldn’t keep the bunny and made contact with us and we had one of our helpers pick her up and bring her to us. She is very friendly and loving and the damage done to her ears from the cat has completely healed.
