Hop on over and adopt a rabbit!

February is Adopt-A-Rescued-Rabbit Month and we have a few rabbits waiting for a wonderful home at our Dedham Adoption Center. Rabbits can make great pets for the right people, meaning someone who doesn’t mind a pet that they’ll spend just as much time observing as handling. If you’re someone who isn’t looking for a pet that will require your constant attention, then a rabbit might be a good choice for you. They are very smart and make excellent pets for city dwellers.

Michelle Chandler, Assistant Director of the Annual Fund at the League and mom to 3 year-old Scofield said that “one of the benefits of having a rabbit in the city is that they are great apartment pets. They are quiet, low maintenance and do not take up much space. Also they are trainable – my rabbit is litter box trained so he can spend hours outside of his crate exploring the apartment.” Michelle also notes that “before allowing your rabbit to have free reign do make sure apartment is bunny proof – they love to chew – on everything including electrical cords.”

Mocha is one of several rabbits available for adoption at our Dedham Adoption center. She is a very sweet 1 year-old female Rhinelander mix. She was found as a stray and gave birth to 7 baby rabbits in the shelter! She was put in foster care while she nursed her babies and has been well socialized. She will be spayed before her adoption. If you are interested in adopting her please call the Dedham branch of the Animal Rescue League of Boston at (781) 326-0729 for more information or stop by the shelter to meet her!

Hans is one of two rabbits currently adoptable at our Boston Adoption Center. He is a super sweet and friendly 1 year-old neutered male Dutch rabbit who was transferred to the League from another shelter. Stop by our Boston Adoption Center to meet him or give us a call at (617) 226-5602.
