TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
As responsible breeders, we keep our kits for a minimum of 8 weeks and may keep our kits up to 10 weeks or longer if we feel they are not ready for traveling. This also gives us a chance to see how they are going to mature for show, breeding or pet quality. The price of our junior rabbits may increase as they develop into show or breeding quality. We keep our bunnies healthy with regular worming and proper care. We evaluate our show bunnies for potential disqualifications but ultimately it is your responsibility to inspect them for proper qualifications and evaluate them for show quality, etc. (i.e.) to err is human.
We will replace any rabbit for one of equal value should the rabbit you have purchased from us die of natural causes during the first 14 days of ownership. I cannot control how the bunny is taken care of once it leaves my barn, therefore we require a written statement from a licensed veterinarian that the bunny died of natural causes and NOT from exposure to a parsite, disease, improper care, heat &/or cold exposure, etc., which is why we offer a 48 hour guarantee for you as a purchaser to have your bunny inspected... no exceptions!
We as breeders are not responsible for what may happen with 3rd party transports or what the bunny(ies) may be exposed to during that time. That is the unfortunate risk of having someone haul your bunnies for you. Please keep that in mind when you purchase bunnies and be aware that they will need time to adjust to the environment you plan to keep them in.
We cannot guarantee fertility of the bunnies. That is totally up to nature.
We cannot guarantee a winner. No matter what, it is ultimately up to the judge to decide. Just remember, one persons opinion does not make the bunny a winner or loser!! Showing your bunny at several shows will better evaluate them for quality. What truly matters is what "YOU" think of your bunny and having a good understanding of the ARBA Standard of Perfection.
Deposit for half the amount of the rabbit(s) is required to hold any of our bunnies. We will not hold animals without a deposit, no exceptions. A 50% deposit is required within one week to hold any animal. The 50% deposit is a non-refundable deposit. I prefer pickup of all sale rabbits within 48 hours but I will not hold a rabbit longer than 15 days unless arrangements have been made and approved by seller for boarding, fees, care, release of liability, etc. Some exceptions may apply but ONLY by written agreement signed and agreed upon between both seller and the buyer. Deposits are absolutely non-refundable unless we cancel the sale. Delivery or pickup plans must be agreed upon before we will accept a deposit. A separate charge for maintenance and handling is required should pickup/delivery be scheduled in excess of 15 days. (For babies that have a deposit, hold or sale prior to weaning, the 15 days would start at 8 weeks of age & thereafter)
Right to Cancel
Sales are on a first come, first served basis. Preference will be given to buyers who can pickup within 48 hours. We do not keep a waiting list without a deposit. If a deposit is placed on a litter that is still in utero, the deposit may reflect up to 50% of the price of a 4H prospect until further evaluations can be made on the litter for a final purchase price. In no way will the amount or acceptance of a deposit on a bunny from an unborn litter or a weanling kit imply the final cost of a rabbit. We reserve the right to cancel a sale prior to its completion at any time for any reason.
Shipping is available on a limited basis, solely at our discretion . There is a minimum purchase requirement before we will consider to ship rabbits. Buyer pays for any costs associated with shipping, including but not limited to airline fees, vet check, carrier costs, etc. Final payments on shipment costs are due 2 weeks before ship date. It is buyers responsibility to inform seller if the rabbit requires shipping.
All shipping costs will be at buyers expense and will include (but is not limited to) our travel cost to the nearest airport to ship rabbits out. We reserve the right to refuse to ship, however buyer MUST have an agreement in writing from seller prior to purchase and ALL arrangements to ship the rabbit MUST be made prior to any sale, no exceptions.
We do not guarantee shipping nor shipping availability therefore shipping will be solely at seller discretion, if available. Most airlines have climate control requirements for shipping live animals. However, if you are close enough and we or someone we know will be attending a show, we MAY BE ABLE TO ARRANGE TO HAVE A RABBIT DELIVERED TO A SHOW. We travel to Great Falls, Kalispell, Helena & Hamilton - Montana, Sandpoint - Idaho, and Eastern Washington areas and can possibly deliver to these areas or most places along the way.
Delivery arrangements can also be made to the shows we attend and/or rabbits can be picked up at our barn by appointment only. We make every effort to have the rabbit shipped with the least stress possible (when available) which is the reason we have reserved the right to ship to be solely at our discretion.
Deposits must be made in U.S. funds by money order or cashier check for the exact amount only. We may accept checks (solely at our discretion) however, all checks must have cleared our bank before the animal is shipped, picked up or delivered. Final payments should be made in U.S. Funds in the form of Cash, Bank Cashier Check, or U.S. Money Order for the exact amount only.
Only rabbits believed to be in excellent health will leave our barn. Buyer has 48 hours to check over their new rabbit(s)... if your new rabbit dies within the 48 hours and a veterinarian verifies that shipping, traveling stress, disease or improper care is not a factor, we will replace the rabbit with a rabbit of equal value provided a licensed vet verifies in writing that the rabbit has been properly cared for by buyers shipper, agent, handler AND buyer.
We guarantee our rabbits "natural" health for a period of 14 days. Should the rabbit you have purchased from us die of natural causes during the first 14 days of ownership, we will replace it with a rabbit of equal value, provided the rabbit is properly cared for by buyer. I cannot control how the bunny is taken care of once it leaves my barn, therefore we require a written statement from a licensed veterinarian that the bunny died of natural causes and not exposure to a parsite, disease, improper care, heat/cold exposure, etc., no exceptions!
If a replacement is not available and/or an equally similar litter is "not" due within 14 weeks of the date of purchase, we reserve the right (to be solely at sellers discretion) to refund the purchase price minus any non-refundable hold deposits, down payment, boarding fees, etc.
Pricing and Discounts
Rabbits are priced individually based on their merit and/or our evaluation of quality standards. We offer discounts on multiple purchases. There may be a minimum $300 purchase for the multiple purchase discount to apply. We offer a 10% discount for 4-H prospects. Please print and forward the following form verifying 4H membership, completed and signed by your 4H leader in order to qualify for this discount.
Pet rabbits are available year round. Pets may or may not come with pedigrees and are often offered at reduced prices. Pet quality bunnies sold without pedigrees will be solely at seller discretion only!!! If you want a pedigree for a bunny that we have evaluated as "pet quality only" with no pedigree, we will assume they will be desired for breeding and charge the normal price of a pedigreed animal. ALL OF OUR RABBITS SELL WITH PEDIGREES UNLESS SPECIFIED AT TIME OF SALE.
We will not buy back any rabbit, however we will ALWAYS take one of our sale rabbits back ("WITH IT'S CAGE") and give the animal a home... generally we do not have extra cages for an unexpected extra bunny and therefore we are forced to require it's cage in order to house and quarantine the bunny. (This clause does not override our healthy rabbit guarantee on our bunnies, this clause is for an unwanted animal that you may not be able to keep any longer.)
Please do not just turn an unwanted rabbit loose. Once a rabbit becomes domesticated, they do not always know how to survive on their own!!!
