For immediate release
The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) is hopping with rabbits! There are currently 15 friendly bunnies available for adoption. The number of rabbits surged in the past few days, after seven bunnies were found abandoned in a downtown park and brought to the OHS. Now OHS staff are scrambling to find space for all the rabbits and move them out of our cramped facility and into new and loving homes.
Rabbits are intelligent, social animals, and they make affectionate and rewarding family pets. Rabbits can be the ideal pet for small-space living, but they still need lots of exercise. A few hours of out-of-cage “hop time” will be required each day, along with maintaining a fresh supply of water, hay and scooping out the litter box.
If you already have a rabbit-friendly pet at home, a new bunny could be a great addition to your multi-pet household!
Peter, Georgia and Zelda are three of the many rabbits currently available for adoption at the OHS.
