Hello!  If you are here, then you are interested in English Angora Rabbits.  That's wonderful!

English Angora Rabbits are a lot of fun!  They are super soft, have great personalities, are fairly easy to take care of (they do need some special care but we will outline that below), and have one of the most unique silhouettes of any pet out there. They can coexist with children and other pets.  They are fairly inexpensive to keep and don't take up much room.

Angora Rabbits have historically been bread for their hair (wool). Their wool is wonderfully soft and warm. Out of the four recognized Angora Rabbit breeds, it is said that English Angoras are the softest and have the most prized wool.  This is what led me to start keeping this particular breed.  However, since my initial decision to raise this particular breed, I have fallen in love with them and now would keep them even if I wasn't an avid fiber artist.

Please know that there is no pressure to get rid of these bunnies.  I have already bought supplies and created an area where I can provide for all of them.  I'd never breed a litter if I wasn't positive that I could handle them all. 

With that being said - please read the following before you consider adoption.

  • Hutch - I highly recommend having a hutch or gated off area where your bunny can be safe.  While these guys are very at home in your home, they do need a safe place to sleep and stay when you are not available to watch them.

  • Environment - Please toddler proof your home or the area where you will be keeping your bunny.  These animals are very curious.  They also are chewers, and can jump higher than you would think! Before letting them run loose make sure there are no harmful chemicals, wires and cords, or other dangers that they can discover...because they will.

  • Social - Bunnies are very social animals - please do not adopt if you do not have at least a couple of hours each day that you can spend socializing with and caring for your bunny.  They also will bond with other pets, but I strongly advice to supervise all interactions with other animals.

  • Teeth care - English Angora Rabbits need things to chew.  You can find plenty of things in nature for free that will satisfy them: maple twigs, pine cones, untreated wood, long grasses that can be braided together.  You can also find plenty of "rabbit toys" at pet shops and online. 

  • Grooming - Please do not bathe your rabbit.  Do brush thoroughly about once a week.  Clip nails monthly.  I suggest a slicker brush and nail clippers or grinders for regular grooming.  If you find mats in their coats, do cut them out carefully.  They will shed their coats every three to four months.  You can cut their coats at this time, or just brush them a bit more often. 

  • Diet - Feed 1/3 cup of rabbit pellets in the morning and at night.  I use Purina.  I supplement with sunflower seeds (to help their coats), calf manna (a vitamin that can be found at any feed store) and oats.  They also should have a steady supply of Timothy Hay. They should always have access to fresh, clean water.  You can offer treats such as Romain Lettuce and Fresh Herbs (mint and parsley are favorites).  Fruit should be given in very small amounts, very sparingly because of the high sugar content.

  • Exercise - Please make sure your rabbit gets at least an hour of free play time each day.  While they may not be active the whole time (they have a natural cycle of short bursts of awake and at rest), it is still advised to make sure they have ample opportunities for binks and hops!

  • Nature - please keep in mind that rabbits are naturally prey animals.  Therefore they habitually look for spaces they can hide in, and have a tendency to stick close to walls.   Sudden loud movements and noises will send them fleeing!  If your home is lively, please create an area where your rabbit can escape the activity and enjoy a calm space.

  • Handling - Rabbits for the most part prefer to be on the ground.  While most will tolerate being held, they do not prefer it.  They do love pets and scritches - especially on the back and head.  Most bunnies do not like being touched on their sides or bellies.  If you do hold your bunny, make sure their hind legs are supported. Please note that there is always a chance of a nibble or scratch! 

  • Temperature - English Angora Rabbits should be kept in temperatures between 32 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. In warmer temperatures you can offer them frozen water bottles to cool off  (they will lay on them to lower their body temperature).  If their water can freeze or evaporate than it is not a safe environment for them.

We are located in Boonville, NY.  We do not deliver, however there are bunny transporters available for hire if you so desire to use one.   

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me before you decide if an English Angora Rabbit is right for you.

Below I have posted a few short videos of our litter that was born on August 18th, 2022.  Please enjoy the baby bunny cuteness!  They grow up so fast!
