Hi everyone, my name is Speedie & Spot
We found ourselves at Lort Smith when our carers were no longer able to provide us with the time and attention we deserve. We are inseparable, so we are looking for a home together.
We are hard to tell apart, but I, Speedie the daughter, do have some brown on my ears.
We’re a bit skittish at first so we are looking for a family who has experience with bunnies and can be patient with us while we settle in.
Ideally our new home will provide us with inside and outside access so we can stretch our legs and have heaps of fun! We would prefer not to be placed in a hutch as we are quite social, energetic and love to bounce around. Safe places where we can play with our toys and spend time with you would be great!
Rabbits have lots of dietary and health requirements so feel free to ask our staff if you have any questions.
Give the Adoption Hub a call if you would like to meet us.
Adopting an animal
Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.
Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.
- Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
- Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
- Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
- Do I have time for obedience training?
- If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
- Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
- Does the whole family want a pet?
- Will the pet be allowed inside?
- Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
- Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.
Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:
- Weekly animal food bills and necessities
- Yearly council registration
- Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
- Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
- Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
- Ongoing grooming
- Boarding fees for human holidays
- Enrichment like training, toys etc
