Peter the rabbit is our pet of the week!

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.

To learn more about rabbits, or to adopt a long-eared friend, call the OHS at 613-725-3166 ext. 258.
