Ryzha one of the 100 meat farm rabbits we rescued in 2014. Ryzha no longer has to live in a crowded wire pen awaiting slaughter; she now gets to live out her natural bunny behaviours like running, digging, binkying and “happy bunny rolling”.
Frankie was originally found on the side of a road with teeth punture marks in him. He was only a couple of days old. The person who found him took him to our vet who then contacted us and asked if we could provide a forever home for him.
Frankie lived in our spare bedroom and was bottle fed every few hours. We noticed he had his tail cut off and eye teeth removed which made us think he probably came from a factory farm. The farmers remove their tails and teeth without anasthetic and do so to stop the pigs from biting each other because they live in such confined spaces and because they get bored easily. Pigs are highly intelligent animals and studies have shown they are able to perform problem solving activities better than a 3 year old child and that they are smarter than pet dogs.
Frankie is now 3 years old and has had some health issues. As a baby he had about 3 incidents of prolapsed bowel and later as an adult he grew a massive lump off his foot which left him lame. After vet treatment Frankie is able to move about much easier now.
Frankie passed away in May 2016.

Micky & Nicky RIP
Micky and Nicky are 2 bush x domestic rabbits. Due to their likeness to bush rabbits the RSPCA found it hard to find homes for them and they both came to live at Big Ears. Both buns have lived here for a number of years and are inseparable.
This is Smudge one of the baby buns born to Matilda, one of the 3 pregnant females surrendered to Big Ears a fewmonths ago. Smudge has 5 siblings and loves her greens and hanging out with her family and some quiet time to herself.

Salty is one of the 8 bunnies we took in that had been living in not too good conditions in the wet mud and both males and females in together without being de-sexed. Salty is a sweet male and as you can see from his picture he has not only mud on the back of his legs as once this was washed away he was found to have a terrible rash and soreness. Salty was vaccinated, given antibiotic injection, treated for mites and also calcici virus as well as a vitamin injection.
Salty can be sponsored for $150.00. Sponsorship can be made in instalments or be a partial sponsorship as well.
