Rabbits are Australia's number one MOST UNDERVALUED and NEGLECTED animal. The country has declared rabbits as pest, however the breeding of rabbits has and continues to be an issue many welfare organisations are battling against. Not only this but the question currently posed is: Why allow the breeding of rabbits if they are already declared as a pest species? 

Our fight starts off by aiming our attention on the breeding of rabbits for meat. Due to rabbits having a short gestation period (pregnant for only 30 day), the ease of reproducing rabbits has allowed individuals and companies to exploit rabbits for money. 

With this comes SEVERE NEGLECT.

MEAT RABBITS ARE HOUSED IN SMALL, METAL CAGES WITH WIRED FLOORING. With INADEQUATE SPACE to MOVE, inappropriate FEED/WATER and a REDUCED QUALITY OF LIFE. 

Gumtree has allowed the selling of 'MEAT RABBITS' for prices as low as $20. They have allowed sellers to list their 'Meat rabbit' despite being aware of the neglect that these animals face.

Although Gumtree states rules and regulations, Our question is: WHO REGULATES THIS?

Fact: Gumtree is Australia's number one free listing site for animals.

We are asking for YOUR help to get this issue noticed by Gumtree. 

With enough signatures we will be able to prevent gumtree from allowing the selling of meat rabbits. 

Let STOP gumtree from giving RABBIT MEAT BREEDERS a platform to exploit these rabbits.
