The list is free of charge, and offers a wealth of information, especially for the new rabbit "parent." Almost all our participants are owned by companion rabbits, and a great number are seasoned rabbit rescuers who have a great deal of experience in dealing with the unique challenges our rabbit friends pose. Also, EtherBun is a good resource for those interested in learning more about rabbit medical care and general health." - ETHERBUN
