We are always evaluating our herd and occasionally offer brood, fiber/pets and or show prospects in both English Angoras and Giant Angoras to approved homes.  We reserve the right to refuse the sale of any animal, to any person, at any time, and for any reason.  


Please see our page on the Coat Stages of Angoras. This will provided you with a basic understanding of care these breeds require. 


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.


Terms of Sale...By initiating contact with us regarding the purchase of an animal, you agree to and agree to be bound by our Terms of Sale, Sales Policy, listed on this page.  Fuzzibutt’s Rabbitry  & Caviary has the right to back out of a sale at any time. Should we cancel the sale of the rabbit; the money paid will be refunded. If you, the buyer, decided to back out of a sale, all money received will be non-refundable.


Deposit: We require a non-refundable deposit of 50% on any rabbit you desire to purchase unless other arrangements have been made. The balance will be due at the time of pick-up. If you are paying via PayPal, please add an additional 4% to the total of your rabbit or cavy. Deposits are a measure of good faith that you, the Buyer, intend to purchase a rabbit or cavy. If for any reason, the Buyer is unable to meet their end of the purchase of this given rabbit, the seller, Fuzzibutt’s Rabbitry, will retain 100% of the deposit monies.


***When placing a deposit on a rabbit please plan to make arrangements ASAP. It does not make any sense to hold on to an animal for an extended period of time. Of course we will care for it to the best of our ability but it is expected arrangements will be made within two weeks. **** Or a boarding/grooming fee will be implemented. 


Age:  Rabbits will not sold before twelve weeks of age (12) as a pet or sixteen (16) weeks as a show prospect NO exceptions! 


Health:  All of our rabbits will be healthy to the best of our knowledge at the time of sale. By this I mean, I check inside the ears to make sure there is no ear canker. I check teeth to make sure there are no issues with malocclusion. Just the basic things other breeders check for.

If the BUYER wants a "Health Exam" done by a licensed veterinarian YOU are responsible for the following fees up front: gas to and from the vet's office, tolls to and from, 1 FULL day’s pay (because the trip will be a minimum of 6 ours if no traffic and the vet can take us right in),  Health Certificate Fee, Examine Fee by the Veterinarian. I am all most 3 hours each way from the veterinarian that I chose to use. 

A Basic health inspection, (what the majority of breeders deem) is checking eyes for discharge, teeth to make sure they are aligned properly, ears are clean, toe nails clipped, the private area is clean, basic things, etc. We do however encourage the buyer to look over these things as well at the time of exchange. We will not sell any rabbit showing outward signs of infection, or any other visible illness. 


Teeth: We NEVER breed animals that show any signs of malocclusion. We DO NOT guarantee against an animal that throws its teeth out from chewing on its cage. It is natural for rabbits to chew. Please give your rabbit something to chew on!


Fertility: Fertility is NOT guaranteed, as there are too many variables involved. This includes care, temperature, housing conditions, stress, etc. Please understand that every purchase is a potential gamble on Fertility. If a senior rabbit is not proven, it will be fully disclosed before the sale. Occasionally, we may sell bred rabbits to other breeders to help them get started in the fancy please inquire.

Prevention of mites, fleas and worms: We take pride in our healthy herd.  All of our rabbits and cavies are on Revolution, Ivermectin and or Advantage as a anti-parasite preventative for mites, fleas, etc. (since we show so much). We routinely worm our herds.


We Vaccinate: We vaccinate for the prevention of Pasteurella. We use the BunnyVac vaccine which is USDA licensed for the prevention of Pasteurella infections in rabbits. Please note we DO NOT sell the vaccination that information can be found on the Pan American Veterinary Laboratories website. The vaccine is administered through a subcutaneous injection and is comprised of a 2-dose regimen with the second dose (booster) being delivered 30 days following the initial dose then yearly to maintain immunity. More information can be found here pavlab.com/pavlab/bunnyvac/ .  If you chose not to continue to vaccinate that is YOUR Choice and we are Okay with that. *We do this because we show*


For the RHDV2 vaccination it must be administered by a veterinarian that has applied for special licensing privileges to administer this vaccine. The vaccine is administered through a subcutaneous injection and is comprised of a 2-dose regimen with the second dose being delivered 21 days following the initial dose. Then again yearly.  If you chose not to continue to vaccinate that is YOUR Choice and we are Okay with that. *We do this because we show.* For more information on the vaccine please visit Medgene Labs at medgenlabs.com/rhdv2-vaccine/

Basic items needed for your new addition


Things to REMEMBER…


Feed/Supplements: We are currently feeding our rabbits Purina Show Formula, which has 16% protein.  All of our brood stock is supplemented with Oxy-gen pellets daily . Our show stock is supplemented with CircQlate daily. We utilized the Immunize paste and pellets as needed. Their water bottles and emptied out the next day with fresh water.  https://www.pointerhillcagesandpetsupplies.com/oxy-gen-supplements


We will provided enough transition food for a week. Please mix the new food in the old food (what we give you) over about 7 to 14 days to help your rabbit adjust to the new food (that you want to feed). If you have already discarded the old food, feed the new food in small quantities (less than his/her usual daily intake). Make sure your bunny has plenty of hay to ensure it is still getting enough nutrients.


Generally our English Angoras are given 1- 1 1/2 cup of rabbit food daily. Our Giant Angoras

Normally are given 2-3 cups daily. If there is left over food the next morning the feed gets tossed and new feed is offered. We feed our rabbits in the morning.


Water: We also empty out the 32oz wide mouth Lixit water bottles at this time and fill it with fresh clean water. We added a small, small pinch (like ½ or a teaspoon) of Epson Salt and a specific amount of BlueGold® Grand Champion PME®, which is formulated only with Certified Organic and FDA GRAS Ingredients. It enhances hydration and washes intestinal bio-film allowing for increased nutrient uptake while also introducing an increase in oxidation potential promoting enhanced immune functions. We will top off the water bottle in the evenings. The next morning the water bottle is emptied and filled again.

Treats: We do give our rabbits treats occasionally, such as All are TEASPOON sized of Rolled Oats, calf-manna performance supplement, dried cranberries, Cheerios, Frosted Flakes. If you do decide to do Treats: chose one every few days and give a small, small amount. DO NOT give all of this at once.

If you want to give a piece of apple, (a pinky size {like your pinky finger}) is okay. A strawberry (1 piece), 1-2 blue berries is fine also, some of like bananas and others do not.


Vegetables: Our guys and girls are used to a small piece of sweet potatoes daily. Weekly they are given a piece of spinach, cilantro, parsley, collard greens, and kale. ALL in small amounts!!!!!


Please note, some breeders chose not to give anything other than pelleted rabbit food, that is fine as well.


Hay: We give our rabbits hay twice a day, no matter what, once in the morning and once at bedtime. They also have access to hay while they are traveling. We try to get a bale of each: grass, timothy, orchard, Bermuda, and oat hay. We either stuff it in empty toilet paper rolls or use hay feeders that are attached to the wire pens. Please note, some breeders chose not to give hay or anything other than pelleted rabbit food, that is fine as well.


Rabbit Housing: Our show stock is kept in 36X24 cages with plenty of room to move with their large show coats. Our brood (clipped down) resided in 24X24 cages and or 30X30 cages. We suggest all of our rabbits are kept on wire floor pens. I know they are not attractive but they do assist in keep the bunny much cleaner. If you want to do something else, please, please keep the rabbits coat clipped short, the butt trimmed and fur on the feet trimmed so it will not get dirty.


The American Rabbit Breeders Association recommends a minimum Care Guide: https://arba.net/arba-recommendations-for-the-care-of-rabbits-and-cavies/


Toys: OMG! Yes, ours LOVE toys. Bunny enrichment is important. We use wooden blocks (that have not been treated with chemicals), plastic shower curtain rings attached to one another, balls with balls inside, etc.


Grooming: Our rabbits are USED to being handled frequently. Basic supplies you will need: cornstarch for mats and staining, a slicker brush (I like Doggyman Slicker Brushes) and a good metal greyhound comb and not to mention a pair of scissors.


If you would like mentoring on showing, grooming your pet angora, show grooming, clipping your rabbit’s nails, I would be happy to assist.
