February is Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month
Warm Your Heart, Warm Your Home - Adopt a Rescued Rabbit
Rabbits are currently the third most common animals abandoned at shelters and in need of loving homes. The Cocheco Valley Humane Society has joined Petfinder.com, The House Rabbit Society, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) in declaring February "Adopt-A-Rescued-Rabbit Month." Warm your heart, warm your home, and adopt a rescued rabbit.
These small mammals make excellent pets. Rabbits are intelligent, social animals capable of forming lifelong bonds with their human companions. Whether housed in a small city apartment or a spacious country home, the quiet well-mannered house rabbit will be a welcome addition. They are capable of being litter-box trained, and their playful antics will warm your heart for years to come. After all, a well cared for house rabbit has a lifespan of five to ten years.
If you decide a rabbit is the right addition to your household, make adoption your first option by visiting the Cocheco Valley Humane Society in Dover NH.
