Availability/For Sale/Terms of Sale

     ~Last updated February 20, 2024~

It is always fun sorting through the next generation of Fuzzibutt's Rabbitry & Caviary show prospects. Our goal is to produce animals that meet the current Standard of Perfection, set forth by the American Rabbit Breeders Association. Occasionally, we may have a rabbit or guinea pig we are willing to move on as a pet, brood or show prospect.

Our goal at Fuzzibutt's Rabbitry & Caviary is to produce the best rabbit and cavies we can in each breed we are working with one generation at a time. We are constantly evaluating our rabbits and cavies. While doing so we will post our availability below. Unfortunately, we cannot keep everything or use every animal we produce in our breeding/show program. When this occurs, we will post these animals below.


Types of Quality we offer, please note ALL our rabbits/cavies are available as pets without pedigrees at a discounted rate.

Pet Quality: Often my best pet rabbits/cavies are those who are being retired from breeding and showing. Other times I do have rabbits/cavies that have disqualifications. Any of our rabbits/cavies listed for sale, can be sold as a pet. Our pet rabbit/cavies do not come with a pedigree, nor are they to be bred. However, if you would like a birth certificate, please let us know in advance.

Show Prospects/Quality: Any rabbit/cavy that I would have no qualms about putting on a show table. This means that the rabbit/cavy has no disqualifications. Winning or placing is not guaranteed. Show Prospects will still have some faults to some degree. Rabbits/cavies will come with full and complete pedigrees. Along with registration, grand champion certificates, show records, and legs if they have them. ***Additional fee will be applied for Show Prospects if being coated out, for pick up later***


As a prospective owner of a Fuzzibutt's rabbit or cavy it is YOUR responsibility to READ and AGREE to our Terms of Sale which are listed below. By initiating contact with us regarding the purchase of an animal, you agree to and agree to be bound by our Terms of Sale, 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 animal, the money paid will be refunded. If you, the buyer, decided to back out of a sale, all money received will be non-refundable.


Now for the Nitty Gritty part of the Terms of Sale

Deposit:

We require a non-refundable deposit of 50% on any rabbit/cavy you desire to purchase unless other arrangements have been made. The balance will be due at the time of pick-up. I accept cash (preferred), if you need to pay a different way, please ask about other payment choices.

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 & Caviary, will retain 100% of the deposit monies.

***When placing a deposit on a rabbit/cavy please plan to decide ASAP. This means within a week! It does not make any sense to hold on to an animal for an extended period. 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 sell before twelve weeks of age (12) as a pet or sixteen (16) weeks as a show prospect NO exceptions! Guinea Pigs will not be sold before (6) weeks of age as pets or (12) weeks as show prospects.

Health:

 All of our rabbits/cavies 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 their teeth to make sure there are no issues with malocclusion. Just the basic things other breeders check for. A Basic health inspection, (what most breeders deem) is checking eyes for discharge, teeth to make sure they are aligned properly, ears are clean, toenails 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/cavy showing outward signs of infection, or any other visible illness.

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 hours if no traffic and the vet can take us right in), Health Certificate Fee, Examine Fee by the Veterinarian. I am 3 hours one way from the veterinarian that I trust and use.

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*

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/cavies to chew. Please give your rabbit/cavy 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/cavy is not proven, it will be fully disclosed before the sale. Occasionally, we may sell bred rabbits/cavies to other breeders to help them get started in the fancy. If interested, please inquire.

Prevention

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

Weight: We DO NOT

 Guarantee that any of our Giant Angoras will make senior weight of 9.8 lbs. minimum for Senior Bucks and 10 lb. minimum for Senior Does. But please be assured we do not do any Breeding’s unless the buck and doe make senior weight without their wool on (rabbit must be sheared/naked to count for us in the weight division). We do not utilize underweight Giant Angoras in our breeding program!

 

TRANSPORT By A THIRD PARTY:

 Please note when you inquire about a rabbit/cavy…it is your responsibility to investigate transport. There are multiple groups on Facebook that offer cross country or local transport.  Transport is a service offered by various people that pick the Bunny/Piggy up from the seller at a meeting/pick up location and transports them to a meeting/drop off location of the buyer. Please note I do not endorse anyone so please, please do your research. Once the animal leaves my possession, I am no longer responsible. Remember to read over each individual transporter’s TERMS and CONDITIONS Remember to discuss payment with them beforehand regarding your transport. Ask them for references and CHECK them.
