How much is that doggie (or kitty, rabbit, rat, goldfish or guinea pig…) in the shelter window? In addition to the initial cost of adoption, there’s a whole litany of expenses that the average pet owner will incur within a year. To make it easier for you to plan for your new arrival, we’ve prepared a financial breakdown of the annual costs of caring for a variety of species. To see the chart in full click here.
I found their price guidelines rather a lot off. $730 to care for one rabbit over the course of one year and that's just regular care. AND if one considers what all the first year costs might be with neutering and other such things at over $1000. It was like HUH? how do you figure that.
For ONE rabbit, even using the expensive litter....$730 for one year???? NOT....
At the most for litter it would be $240 ($20 bag of carefresh per month) for litter (most people go cheaper and do pine or aspen which would significantly bring that amount down. If one wished to you might be able to get pet insurance, you might wish to buy toys but you certainly don't have to, litter boxes for rabbits don't tend to cost $25.
Anyways, I found it interesting, you might too. .
