Interested in Adopting a
Rabbit or Two?
House rabbits are the third most popular pet in America.
They are intelligent and affectionate, and enjoy the company of
each other, of people, and quite often, of other pets too! With
proper education and planning, having a rabbit or two around the
house can be a wonderfully rewarding experience.
Rabbits are easily litterbox-trained. The litter should be dust
free, and should never contain pine or cedar, as these can cause
respiratory disease. CareFresh is an excellent choice for litter,
and is available at most pet supply stores.
A healthy rabbit's diet consists of daily quantities of: 1) high-fiber
pellets; 2) fresh greens such as parsley and cilantro (head lettuce
has too much water and can cause diarrhea; carrots are fattening
and should only be given in small quantities as treats); and 3)
fresh hay, such as oat or timothy. Alfalfa hay is too rich in
calcium for an adult rabbit and can cause major health problems.
We can help you find sources for fresh hay and proper pellets.
All our rabbits are spayed or neutered prior to placement.
If you already have a rabbit, we urge you to do so as well for
your rabbit's health, and to ensure that you do not contribute
to the overpopulation problem.
