Cuteness overload alert
The West Australian Rabbit Council are hosting this fabulous event which includes market stalls (craft, pet products, information booths, treats etc) and the rabbit show, plus you can get your bunny vaccinated on the day for just $35. The vaccinations are available from 9am-12pm and you can book your spot by emailing by the 5th October 2018. This service includes a health check too and is carried out by a vet from Morley Vetcentre.

There will also be food vans on site so you can stay and play all day.

The rabbit show commences at 10am with the Breeds Show and includes fancy, lop, fur and rex categories.

This will be followed at 11am by the Pet Show and will include categories to include cleanest pet, cutest pet etc with the following sections:

Pet Owner under 12 years
Pet Owner under 17 years
Companion Pet

Pet Fancy Dress under 12 years (Halloween themed)
Pet Fancy Dress under 17 years (Halloween themed)

The cost is just $2.00 per rabbit per section and entries can be in advance or on the day.

This is a box show so please bring suitable boxes to house your rabbits during the day. The boxes need to be top opening.

Pet prams are also suitable and welcome.

Please provide a water bottle for your bunny.

Novice exhibitors are welcome and are encouraged to attend - the judges are bunny mad and would love to meet you and your bunny.

Everyone is welcome to come along and enter their bunny in the pet section or just to have a look around and see what the warren of market stalls are selling. Any monies spent will be a buck well spent!

There will be information booklets about basic rabbit keeping available to buy too. This is an invaluable resource put together by the West Australian Rabbit Council and their combined years of experience with rabbits.

It is current information and worth buying if you are considering a rabbit as a pet.

This is a wonderful event in you have a child who is wanting a bunny. Go along and talk to the friendly Club Members who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and will give good sound advice, plus put you in touch with breeders who have their bunnies best interests at heart.

This is Chloe, a local celebrity and won the latest Pet Fancy Dress category with her pirate theme.

Her costumes are handmade by her owners. It is their hobby and something they are very passionate about, like many other owners who attend the shows.

This promises to be a wonderful day out for all the family and comes with a warning that there will be an abundance of cuteness throughout the whole day. If you think you can deal with that, then hop, skip and jump along to the event; you will leave a happy bunny!

It's so nice to hear about a rabbit show in Australia, especially one where they can get vaccinated. A couple of years ago I was getting my rabbits vaccinated and the the vet, who was from Australia, said that in many places pet rabbits are not allowed to be vaccinated, which is sad. Is that that case? I'm glad to see you can get them vaccinated in in Perth :D
