Welfare

The Global Rabbit Network advocates for and promotes the safe and responsible keeping and breeding of rabbits. We believe it is vital to build a strong, responsible community dedicated to this welfare. Though other organizations may have differing viewpoints regarding rabbit keeping and breeding, it is our responsibility to do what we believe is best. Because our users work with live animals, our platform may be scrutinized by people who disagree: aggressive animal activists, rescue organizations, etc. We must remember to always conduct ourselves in an open-minded, honest manner and to respect all opinions. In doing so, we will maintain our safe, positive space for rabbits!
