Adopt Me!!!!URGENT!!!
Location: MelbourneContact: Rita I am looking for someone to foster or adopt my bunnyPercy, as I am going away on a research trip for six to eightmonths in early September. If you are able to look after himfor any amount of time that would be greatly appreciated,as I can hopefully also foster him out to a few people forshorter amounts of time, if six months is too long a stretchfor one person.Alternatively, if you are looking to adopt a little furry friend,then I am also willing to give him up to a new home,although I'd prefer fostering if possible because he is muchloved.Percy is a beautiful, black, indoor dwarf rabbit. He is toilettrained, and very tame and friendly. He has beenvaccinated for the year and will be desexed before I go, soif you have any other rabbits he should be able to get alongwith them. He has had his front teeth removed so he won'tchew on any furniture or electrical leads, but he does needthe odd carrot chopped up for him.Here's a little description of Perceval the rabbit:
Percy or Nyuszi (Hungarian for rabbit)
grass, sniffing, pats on the head, exploring darkcorners, apples, carrots, running around, playing with hisblanket
being kept in a cage for too long, being picked uptoo much/heights, forks scraping against plates
If you are interested in fostering or adopting Percy,please email me on rhoranyi@yahoo.com.au or contactme on my mobile: 0401578021. I'm willing to negotiatesome payment for fostering/minding.

I picked it up, brought it homeand contacted the RSPCA...their advice, "take it to a vetand have it euthanased". I don't want to do that.If anyone would like to adopt this bunny & give it a goodlife, please contact Gary on 0417 803 600 or emailgpurch48@bigpond.com 
Location: MelbourneContact: Selena - 0412 496 179 orselenajb@iprimus.com.au Finding a home forBastian is unfortunatelybecoming a desperatesituation. If anyone canfoster this little guy for afew months, we would bevery grateful.BOING recently receiveda very disturbing email from her original person in Londonstating that if she can’t find another home for Bastion, thatshe’s considering having him euthanased. This doesn’t sitwith us at all. Even though we don’t take to blackmail, wealso don’t want Bastian to lose his life just because thereisn’t anywhere for him to live.
