a Rabbit This February!
? February is almost here, and many people
immediately think of Valentine's Day ? a candlelight
dinner, delicious chocolates and some quality time
with their sweetie. But February also marks another
special occasion ? according to the American Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA),
February is Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month.
All of the rabbits
at the Wisconsin Humane Society are eager to meet
their new long-term families. WHS suggests some
of the many reasons to adopt a rabbit this month:
are great outlets for giving and receiving affection.
Their love is unconditional, non-judging and non-competitive.
are natural entertainers. They bring on smiles and
laughter, and help to alleviate stress.
don't have to take a rabbit outside in the middle
of the night.
of the rabbits at WHS have been spayed or neutered,
microchipped, given initial vaccinations and received
a health exam.
cost to adopt a rabbit at WHS is only $15.
volunteers socialize our rabbits everyday, which
means we can offer plenty of useful information
about each animal's personality to potential adopters.
coming to WHS, you only have to make one stop. After
you adopt a rabbit here, you can pick up all of
the supplies needed for your new friend at Animal
Antics, the store for creature comforts.
WHS currently has several
rabbits available for adoption, including Caleb,
2-year-old New Zealand rabbit; Hoppy, a 5-year-old
Rex rabbit; and Erin, a 5.5-year-old Californian
