Rabbits are intelligent, social animals. When given plenty of attention, they make affectionate and rewarding family pets. They can be trained to use a litter box and are more enjoyable, responsive pets when living indoors as house rabbits. Given appropriate care, a rabbit can live up to ten years. Peter (A114637), a five- year-old bunny, is one of many rabbits currently at the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS). He was given up by his owners, and is now searching for a new home. Each year, more than 2,275 animals are surrendered to the OHS for financial or other reasons.
