A lot of folks ask how the adoption process works so here's the step by step info: Reserving: Please contact me via my "contact" page to let me know which bunny you're interested in. If the bunny is not old enough for adoption you can reserve him/her by sending payment through Venmo or Apple Pay. The deposit is $50 to reserve the bunny. This deposit is non-refundable if you change your mind. However, if the cancellation is my decision then your deposit will be fully refunded. The deposit is also not transferable which means you cannot change your mind and pick another bunny later without losing the first deposit. Payment: You will owe the balance paid in cash at the time of pick up or you can pay the balance in full through Venmo or Apple Pay in advance of the bunny pick up. Pick Up: You will need to pick up your bunny within one week of his adoption date unless prior arrangements have been made. If you are unable to pick up your bunny within this time, you will lose your deposit. Please remember to bring a carrier (about the size needed for a cat) or a suitable box with a towel in the bottom to keep your bunny comfortable on the ride home. The Wait List Option: I am now offering the opportunity for folks to be put on a wait list! You will place the $50 deposit and then once the babies are 5-6 weeks old, I will be taking the baby portraits so that you can take your pick. I will be contacting you in the order that you're on the list. You will then have 72 hours to make your choice! In the event that none of the current babies are what you want, I will roll the deposit over to the next litter.
Depending on the demand, it is not necessary to be on the wait list but it would guarantee your place in line so you don't have to worry!
Bonding with Your New Bunny
Holland Lops are known for their gentle, friendly dispositions. This has made them one of the most popular bunnies for pets. Some bunnies are so outgoing and curious that you will find they have no trouble adjusting to their new home and people and are immediately comfortable. However, you should keep in mind that every bunny has a different personality. Some are more shy or timid than others and it may take a little time for adjustment. Don't be disappointed if he/she doesn't melt into your arms the first day you bring him home! It takes a little time to build trust between him and all of his new surroundings, noises, and smells. Make sure he has a "safe place" that he can spend time in until he's adjusted properly. I would expect this to take up to 1-2 weeks. - Keep in mind that to them, your little puppy may seem like a bunny-eating monster at first so supervise the introductions slowly and maybe even wait a few days or a week before introducing your other pets. - Avoid loud noises. Introduce the vacuum slowly! - Keep away from strong chemical-type smells such as air fresheners and cleaners. I like to use natural cleaners such as Seventh Generation or Kookaburra cleaners. I would never want to use bleach near them.
