Policies


Please make sure that you research Flemish Giant Rabbits and/or Lionheads and the care that is involved before you decide to buy a rabbit. Rabbits are 8+ year commitments, so please do not take the decision to buy a rabbit lightly. With that being said, we are happy to answer any questions you may have! Please also visit our “About Flemish Giants” and “About Lionheads” pages for more info about caring for and showing each breedtry.


As of recently, we no longer allow people to visit our rabbitry. This is for the health and safety of our rabbits. I have no problem showing pictures or videos, whatever you want to see, but I will not risk rabbits getting sick unnecessarily. We also do not allow people to “play” with our rabbits to see if they like the breed. If you want to see Flemish up close in person, visit a local show! But, please be respectful and do not touch other people’s rabbits without permission. Show information can be found on the American Rabbit Breeders Association page at https://arba.net/show-search/.

Pet Quality
We breed rabbits primarily for show. Show quality rabbits come with an ear tattoo and pedigree, pet quality rabbits have neither. Show quality just means that to the breeder’s knowledge, the rabbit is free of disqualifications or faults at the time of sale. Rabbits can develop faults or disqualifications as they mature, so performance in shows can never be guaranteed. This is a risk all breeders encounter, and Michigan Giants & Lions is not responsible for any faults or disqualifications developed after time of sale. However, if you do decide to show our rabbits, please let us know how they do! Good or bad, we are always trying to improve our lines, so any feedback is always helpful!
Please note, rabbits sold at 8 weeks old will rarely be sent with a pedigree. This is because I only sell pedigrees with rabbits who I think will be good for show, and 8 weeks is too early to determine show quality. If you are truly looking for a show quality rabbit, I suggest waiting for an older rabbit that has had time to develop (at least 12 weeks for lionheads, and 5-6 months or older for Flemish Giants). We do sell older pedigreed show rabbits occasionally throughout the year.

Buying a Rabbit
If you would like to purchase a rabbit from us or have questions, just let us know! We no longer do a waitlist for multiple reasons, but I always post when we have rabbits available on our facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/michiganflemishgiants/.  Available rabbits are first come, first served. However, we do reserve the right to refuse a sale to anyone if we feel that it will not be a good fit for our rabbit. Available rabbits that cannot be picked up within 72 hours will require a deposit to hold.


Deposits are done via Paypal or Venmo, or occasionally we will accept cash in person. We prefer not to accept checks, but if you must mail a check for your deposit, your bunny will not be reserved until I have cashed the check. We DO NOT ACCEPT CHECKS UPON PICKUP OF RABBITS, rabbits must be paid in full either with cash on pickup or via Paypal or Venmo prior to pickup in order to take your rabbit home. If you don’t have a Paypal account, that is no problem, I can still send you a Paypal invoice with a link to pay with debit or credit card (still goes through Paypal so all information remains private).

Reserving a Rabbit:  I WILL NOT RESERVE A RABBIT FOR ANYONE WITHOUT A DEPOSIT. To be clear, this means that any available rabbit that I do not have a deposit for is available to the first person willing to put down a deposit (assuming we deem them an appropriate home for our rabbit). If you tell me you want a rabbit, but don’t send a deposit, your rabbit is NOT reserved. If you let me know that you plan to send a deposit, I will give you 24 hours from the time I send you our Paypal info to do so and will not sell the rabbit to anyone else during that time. If I do not receive a deposit within 24 hours, the rabbit will be available again to everyone. It is your responsibility to keep track of this and verify with me that I have received your deposit. I will not send you a reminder that your deposit is due.
Deposits are non-refundable, except in the case that the seller is no longer able to provide you with your originally agreed upon rabbit(s). In that case, you may choose a refund of your deposit or the deposit can be allocated towards a rabbit in a future litter. Remaining balance owed is to be paid in cash upon pick-up of the rabbit, unless other arrangements were previously agreed upon.

Baby rabbits are not allowed to leave mom until they are a minimum of 8 weeks old, NO EXCEPTIONS. We do not allow people to “come play” with our rabbits. If you are purchasing a baby, you will get to choose your rabbit at pickup if there are multiple available. We try our best to schedule pickup times in order of deposits received if possible.

Rabbit pricing is based on potential show quality, pedigree vs no pedigree, and the lines in the pedigree. Prices are NON-NEGOTIABLE. We do NOT give “bulk discounts”, so please do not ask. You are not doing us any favors by buying more than one rabbit from us - as I said, this is not a business, these animals are part of the family.

WE DO NOT SELL MEAT RABBITS or rabbits to be used as breeders for meat rabbits, so if that is what you are looking for, we respectfully ask that you please find a different breeder. Flemish Giants and Lionheads are not an ideal meat breed.
All of our bunnies are sent home with a Care/Info Sheet and some transition food. Rabbits are guaranteed to be in good health to the best of breeder's knowledge at the time of sale; we will not sell any rabbit showing signs of visible illness. You are responsible for checking over your rabbit at the time of pickup. We cannot guarantee the sexing of young rabbits. Buyer accepts responsibility for the health and care of the rabbit from the point of sale forward - Michigan Giants & Lions is not responsible for any changes in the rabbit's condition after they leave our care. Of course, if you have any other questions, please ask us! We want the best for our buns!
