I have a good solid handle with the ring made from aluminum. But the
net itself is dry rotted. I dont fish, so I dont know what is sold.
The net is used for catching pet rabbits, who refuse to be caught by
hand. But it wont catch anything anymore until it gets new netting.
Anyone know if they sell such a thing? Otherwise I guess we have to buy
the whole net. I'm also wondering about a basketball hoop net, and tie
the bottom shut, but the right thing is probably better. Not sure what
else could be used.

Probably the holes are too big for what the OP needs; I went through that
process backwards a year or two ago (I wanted to make some goals in the
back yard for the kids and thought I might be able to get some fishing
net) - the fishing net stuff typically had holes that were quite a bit
smaller than soccer goal netting.

I've still got he shuttle I bought from them to tie my own nets.
I don't think I sprung for the whole kit-
[$25 today] If I was you, I'd consider tying one with some
heavier twine. Ever wished your net was
stiffer/limper/longer/shorter. . . . ? That's how you do that.

Probably, but when you find out how difficult it is to find a replacement net, and how much it will cost compared to a new net, you will decide to throw the old net away and purchase a new one.
Before you start wailing and moaning about our "throw away society" again, think about it... 99.99% of these nets will never be used enough to wear them out. They are bought on impulse by people who think it would be "cool" to take up fishing. They end up hung in the garage and forgotten about. Demand for replacement parts is almost nil. It would cost the company MORE to have a parts distribution network than they'd get back in parts sales.
That said, why don't you write the manufacturer a nice note and see if they'll send you a replacement net under warranty?
