  1. Hello, I am looking to purchase a couple of baby rabbits. either Netherland dwarfs or mini lops with similar markings. I just lost one of brother bucks that I have had for 14 years, and expect the other to leave us soon if not from old age, then from the loss of his brother who has been his companion since birth. I prefer to deal with 4H members as in learning animal husbandry they care for their rabbits and treat them with love and attention. (unlike pet stores or their suppliers) If you can help point me in the right direction, I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

    1. Ethan,
      Thank you for your inquiry. I have shared your information with our Sussex County 4-H rabbit club leaders. They will share it with their club members, and hopefully someone can connect you with the rabbits you’re looking for!
