🐰RABBIT ADOPTION DRIVE 🐰
Date: March 7 2020, Saturday
Time: 1pm to 5pm
Inquiry Form: https://bit.ly/2XZccEn
If you are keen to attend our adoption drive, please complete the inquiry form above. Due to our small venue, we can only invite selected families by appointment only. If you like to meet our rabbits, please write in early to prevent disappointment!
Due to our limited manpower, we will only be able to contact selected families to pursue the adoption. We will do so via phone. We do apologize that we are unable to reply to every inquiry and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
We select families based on their rabbit care knowledge and their commitment towards our rescued rabbits. To ensure you are well-prepared for the adoption, we recommend that you review our Rabbit Care Guide (https://bit.ly/2FdMFA6).
We thank you for loving our rabbits and respecting our adoption process. These procedures are in place to ensure our rabbits’ welfare are protected. They have been hurt before and we will not allow them to be compromised again! Thank you!
APPEALING FOR FOSTER HOMES♥️
Bunny Wonderland and House Rabbit Society Singapore (HRSS) was approached to rescue approximately 50 rabbits from a neglected environment. It started with 2 unsterilized rabbits and over the years, uncontrollably bred to 50.
This Saturday (15 Feb 2020), volunteers from both groups will be heading down to the location to offer our help. It is likely there will be sick, pregnant, young and senior rabbits that needs to be immediately removed.
Both rescue groups are at full capacity but we had to do something. We are turning to the animal-loving community to appeal for foster space to provide a temporary shelter for these rabbits.
As these rabbits are likely unwell, we do have requirements to ensure fosterers are able to care for them. Please review our requirements below and if you are able to assist, please fill in this form: Foster Application Form
As we do not have full-time staffs, we regret to inform that only successful applications will be contacted. We thank you for your understanding.
We thank you for offering your help to achieve BW’s motto of “No bunny gets left behind”!
TAMPINES RESCUE OF 46 RABBITS
2 years ago, 2 rabbits were abandoned near a Tampines site. The staffs took them in but unfortunately, one passed away. Worried for the surviving one, they acquired another to keep it company. Little did they know, the 2 rabbits started to breed and grew to 50. Some passed away and many were killed by the rats. Fearing the rabbits are now in danger, they contacted us for help.
Bunny Wonderland was at full capacity and unable to take on new cases. But hearing that the rabbits are in such bad condition, we had to do something. We roped in our friends at HRSS and together, we started appealing for foster homes. With the help of the animal-loving community, we found about 20 spaces to take in at least half of the rabbits.
Yesterday, about 10 volunteers headed down to the site. It was messy with rabbits hiding under wooden planks, branches and burrows in the ground. We even found hundreds of cockroaches crawling out of thee holes. We were told rats were living in there as well. It wasn’t a very comfortable place and we knew the rabbits need to be out.
The volunteers removed the ground debris and tried to capture the rabbits. They were isolated into ‘male’ and ‘female’ pens and checked for health issues. We counted a total of 46 rabbits of which 21 were females, 23 were males, and 2 were babies. Some had skin wounds while a few were infected. Most of the females were pregnant.
HRSS has taken over the care of 14 females while BW has taken over 7 females, 5 injured males and 2 babies. Those that needs medical attention are now in the vet clinic while others are in foster homes. Over the next few days, more of them will be sent for medical treatment. We aim to sterilize the females as soon as we can to prevent any litter.
Due to space limitation, we had to leave 18 males behind. We cleaned up the compound and filled it with ample hay, pellets and water. They were also dosed with revolution for mites prevention. We guided the site staffs to keep up with their feeding and cleaning. Meanwhile, we can only pray they stay safe and healthy until we can remove them.
Both HRSS and BW are doing our best to rescue these rabbits. However, our resources are stretched extremely thin and we need the support from the animal-loving community. If you are an experienced rabbit owner and can help to foster some of 18 males, please fill in the form: https://forms.gle/
With a total of 46 rabbits that needs food, supplies, medical attention and eventual sterilization, we are also in shortage of funds. We estimate that this rescue will cost at least S$20,000 and we need all the help we can get to provide sufficiently for them. Please consider contributing to our rescue effort via the bank information below:

HRSS: OCBC Current # 611322363001 or Paynow to UEN No.T02SS0090H.
This rescue clearly made 2020 a challenging year but we are not ready to give up on the rabbits. Let’s all do our best to achieve BW’s motto of “No bunny gets left behind”! Thank you!
MY PROMISE TO YOU
People typically get a pet with good intentions to care for it and bring their family joy. However, being a good owner is more than just caring and playing. It’s about commitment, responsibility and sacrifice. A dedicated rabbit owner will confess it’s no less than a marriage bond, no less than the duty of a parent to a child.
“To hold from this day forward,
For better or for worse,
For richer, for poorer,
In sickness and in health,
To love and to cherish;
For this day forward until death do us part.”
This, is the duty of a pet owner to their beloved pet. Regardless if the pet was purchased, found, adopted or gifted, as the main caregiver, you means the world to them. In good days and bad, your pet will always be there for you. You, as the only person who can protect them, should love and cherish them. And not to think about giving them up when they, will never give up on you.
The spirit of commitment, responsibility and sacrifice can never be instructed. They have to be nurtured and cultivated. We hope more people realized the importance of being a responsible pet owner. For these animals will love you unconditionally till their last breath. The question is, are you ready to do the same for them?
BUNNY WONDERLAND 2019 RESULTS
2019 had been an extremely challenging year as we were faced with our founder’s ailing health and loss of income. However, with the help of our supporters, the team did our best and helped as many rabbits as we could.
In 2019, we rescued 63 rabbits (vs. 75 in 2018) and found homes for 55 (vs. 75 in 2018). We had 6 disappointing cases of returns (vs 3 in 2018). We will continue to re-assess our adoption procedure and do our best to improve.
The rabbits we cared for were rather sickly and weak. In addition to new rescues, long-term residents were also in need of veterinary care. As a result, we expensed a total of S$113,804 on their bills and supplies (vs. 113,373 in 2018).
Thankfully, our effort was recognized and we received strong support from the community. We managed to raise S$95,740 (vs. $77,686 in 2018) which offset 84.1% of our expenses. This is a significant leap from 68.5% in 2018.
Lastly, despite limited manpower, we continued to conduct educational sessions for the community. We hosted 5 workshops, 4 school talks and 1 grooming workshop. We couldn’t have done this without our dedicated volunteers.
Bunny Wonderland is a tiny team of rabbit owners and we owe it to the animal-loving community to help us help the animals. We will also like to thank our fellow rescuers as well as our vets, suppliers, vendors, etc. We couldn’t have done it without you.
2020 is looking to be a rocky year. As we continue to help the animals, we hope to focus on our humans as well. Our founder, Jackie, has been overworked and our volunteers are stretched. While we will do our best, we may not be able to take on as much as before. We hope you understand. Thank you.
BE A BUNNY WATCHER
In Singapore, it is very common for us to find rabbits living in the outdoors such as along our corridors, at an exposed balcony or in the patio of landed homes. These are actually dangerous and very cruel ways to house a pet as they can be exposed to bad weather, attacked by predators, or even be stolen!
Many animal lovers have expressed their concerns but they are unaware how to help. To assist, Bunny Wonderland and House Rabbit Society Singapore (HRSS) have initiated our ‘Bunny Watcher’ program! This is an all-voluntary initiative aim to empower the community with knowledge to provide immediate relief to an animal in need.
There is no qualification process so anyone and everyone can be a bunny watcher! All you need is to download our ‘Bunny Watcher’ brochure and share it with the rabbit owner you like to help. There is a recommended protocol in event you require professional assistance and also our contacts if they need to rehome their pets.
Both HRSS and BW are all-voluntary welfare groups. We do not have full time staffs nor professional inspectors who can conduct house visits. We also do not have authoritative rights to remove pets from premises. We hope all rabbit lovers can be a part of this program and help us help the animals together!
