We have rabbits and cavies living in Canada, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, as well as the United States. 

Welcome to Fuzzibutt's Rabbitry & Caviary, Reg. We are a private show & hobby Rabbitry and Caviary located in Delaware (the first state). We started showing in ARBA sanctioned shows in early 2003 and became competitive around 2005-2006 after we established ourselves. We added guinea pigs in 2012 and since then have been showing ever since. We hold several memberships in local, state, regional and national clubs’ rabbit and guinea pig clubs. 

Please Note: Fuzzibutt's Rabbitry & Caviary is a Closed Rabbitry & Caviary. Visitors are NOT allowed to view our facility under any circumstances. Our cavies’ and rabbits' health and safety comes first. For this reason, a mutually agreed-upon location, or reputable transport must be organized for pick-up.

Our motto is "A commitment to excellence is what it is all about in the nest box and show table." Our rabbits and cavies compete on a national level.  Our goal is to produce nationally competitive English Angoras, and Giant Angoras for the show table and the fiber artist. In addition, to our small herd of Lionheads who we adore, we hope they obtain the same success as our other breeds had in the past. Furthermore, our cavy goal is to produce nationally competitive Coronets, Peruvians and Silkies for the show table and unique pet owner. Over the years we have had the pleasure of working with numerous breeds of guinea pigs and rabbits. Many of whom went on to win BIG at prestigious shows such as Convention, and Breed Nationals. 

Breeding rabbits and cavies is both an art and a science, knowing what combinations will give you the correct body type, size and coat/wool.  I am always studying pedigrees and body types not to mention coat/wool quality such as texture & density to further my bloodlines, researching to see where the next 'star' might come from.  This is where the 'fun' of breeding angoras and long hair cavies lay! 

We have very strict standards when it comes to selecting rabbits and cavies for show and even stricter standards when it comes to finding great and loving homes that include fiber, pet and retirement homes. We are NEVER in a hurry to move out any show prospects. In fact, we prefer to hold on to them as long as possible so we can properly evaluate them for their true potential as a show or brood animal. We pride ourselves on being a small rabbitry and caviary, where we can still give all our rabbit and piggy treats such as carrots or a piece of apple at night. All our critters, both angora and cavy, are given lots of attention multiple times a day. Our four-legged kids thrive on personalized attention.

Melissa is the first Dual Rabbit and Cavy licensed Registrar in the state of Delaware. Feel free to contact her to registrar your rabbit or cavy. She earned her rabbit registrar license in October of 2012 and her Cavy registrar license in December of 2000. 

If you are interested in angora rabbit fiber from our award-winning angora rabbits, feel free to contact us. We offer hand plucked, sheared, carded, spun, etc. angora fiber to the discriminating fiber artist.

We vaccinate our rabbits for the prevention of Pasteurella and RHDV2. We use the BunnyVac vaccine which is USDA licensed for the prevention of Pasteurella infections in rabbits. We take our rabbits to a licensed veterinarian who has been granted permission to vaccinate for the prevention of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease also known as RHDV2. We use the  Medgene vaccine which was granted Emergency Use Authorization from the USDA.

We are working closely with The Bill Sims Wool and Mohair Research Laboratory, housed at the Texas A&M University Agricultural Research and Extension Center (now Texas AgriLife Research), San Angelo, Texas to have our English Angora and Giant Angora "Fiber Tested." 

The OFDA200 is an instrument that is used by the research center to rapidly, accurate measurement of diameter, length, curvature (crimp), mean and distribution of many the fiber. 

Micron count/measurement is the expressed micron average of the diameters of the fibers in the sample that was evaluated. 

We chose to have our fiber tested to learn more about what our show line is producing in terms of fiber characteristics.
