Bunnies may not always get the spotlight when thinking about pets, but they get equal care and attention at Animal Humane Society. Coaly, my black Mini-Lop was adopted from the Woodbury Animal Humane Society on May 15th, 2010. Shortly thereafter, I adopted Cassini from the same location.
Coaly was previously an outdoor bunny and I believe Cassini was found as a stray. The two of them now share their own room in my house with a two level “bunny condo” to call their own. Both enjoy daily fresh greens including cilantro, dandelion greens, lettuce and parsley. They also eat copious amounts of timothy hay. Through a careful bonding process, they have become best friends and do everything together now.
As a previous cat and dog owner, I was a complete novice when it came to rabbits as pets. The Animal Humane Society, in addition to written packets of useful information, provides Bunny Basics classes for new owners and Hoppy Hour socialization events for existing ones.
Coaly and Cassini are both litter box trained and are allowed free roaming privileges around the house. The days of believing rabbits are outdoor cage animals are over. Rabbits make excellent house pets and I am forever thankful to Animal Humane Society for introducing this new breed of pet into my life.
