Biosecurity SA/PIRSA issued the following Fact Sheet titled 'Protecting pet rabbits from Calicivirus in South Australia' (PDF) at 5pm on 24th February 2017:

Keeping your rabbits cool in the hot weather

Rabbits cannot sweat or pant and are therefore more likely to suffer from heat stroke. Younger, older and overweight rabbits, and those with long or thick coats, are more prone to suffer from heat stroke.

Help to prevent heat stroke by having a look here at our tips that have helped us to keep our rabbits cool in the hot weather.

Rabbit Adoption

Are you thinking about owning a rabbit as a pet? Is your pet rabbit lonely and looking for a companion? Adopting a pet rabbit through the RSPCA could be the solution for you.

Rabbits adopted through the RSPCA  are health checked, desexed and are up-to date with their Calicivirus vaccination and worming. Visit the RSPCA adopt-a-pet website to see rabbits awaiting adoption now.

Our Shows

Our shows are for the General Public to be able to come and look at the different breeds of rabbits that are at the show to be judged or are on display during our Fun Days.

We do not have rabbits for sale at these shows. 


Would you like to learn more about keeping rabbits? 

 Are you interested in breeding or showing your rabbits?

 If your answer is yes, then SARA can help you.
