From The Rabbit Advocates Hay Team
The RA Hay Team remains committed to providing nutritious, locally grown hay that is safe for bunnies. With the appearance of the Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Type 2 (RHDV2) in Oregon, additional protocols have been implemented by the Hay Team.
It is not enough to ensure that your bunny remains indoors to protect against RHDV2 infection. Wild animals such as raccoons, field mice and rats, birds, flies and mosquitos, the family cat and dog, and even household members can bring RHDV2 into the home on clothing and shoes.
RA stores all of its hay in a clean, secure, dry warehouse. All of the hay currently in the warehouse and marketplace is from the 2020 harvest season and has been stored for longer than 105 days. The 2021 hay harvest will begin around May and continue until July.
We always need volunteers! Hay packing occurs twice per week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Individuals can join household member groups if they have received a COVID-19 vaccine. If you can’t pack hay but, have a truck or van, consider joining the hay delivery team. For more information, contact Hay Packing Coordinator Kris Newmann at: email@example.com.
