    You pay a donation to adopt these buns, they do not vacc or neuter them like rescues so what are you paying for? Majority of these adoptions are buns being returned to the store, so they cause the problem. This is why rescues are so important, they spay/neuter, vacc and are supportive, they know what they are doing.

    I thought this was a brilliant example and a good reason to homecheck too. Read this little bunnies story:

    Rabbit Rehome - Adopt a unwanted bunny from a rescue centre

    I do think the "adoption" section encourages people to buy on a whim, and without accepting the full responsibility.

    Its all to easy to buy a pet, then return it if it fails to live up to expectations, or the owner gets bored.

    I dont think they should be allowed to put their unsold animals into there either.

    I got Norbert from the P@H adoption bit, and i only paid £10 for him. They say the money goes to charity, but im really not convinced.

    Looks like she is reserved already!!! A lady is adopting another special needs bun from the same rescue, she adopts diasbled/elderly buns and has a fabulous home for them, she has offered her a home too :D
