Hello my name is Phil! When I came into the shelter I was not in very good shape 🙁 I was overweight and couldn’t clean my underside so I was irritated and infected. The awesome staff here at the shelter have fixed me up and I am ready to find my family! I am a super sweet and laid back boy that just wants someone to snuggle and pet me. My family needs to know proper diet needs for rabbits and cannot keep me in a small cage or enclosure so I can get the proper exercise and space I need. I would do best in a puppy pen or free range. Please restrict my pellets and treats and keep me on a daily diet of unlimited fresh hay and healthy bunny veggies. Come visit me today!
Rabbits can live over ten years, require space and commitment, and can be costly. They are social animals who want your attention and who each have their own personalities. Rabbits are fragile and have delicate spines, so their owner must be educated on proper rabbit handling. Because of this, rabbits do best with adults and older children.
Rabbits need a large cage with a hide shelter, water bottle and food bowl, toys like balls and chew sticks, and a hay rack. They can be litter box trained, which means they also need a litter box. A healthy rabbit’s diet consists of 80% hay with timothy, grass, and oat hays for older rabbits and alfalfa hay for young rabbits. Rabbits also need a large variety of vegetables and greens, a limited amount of rabbit food pellets, and the very occasional sugary treat like carrots or berries.
Rabbits get bored just like the rest of us, and enjoy ripping up newspaper and playing with carboard boxes and toilet paper rolls. Rabbits can be messy and enjoy rearranging their cages exactly how they like it! They need room to roam and exercise outside of their cage each day, but it is very important to rabbit-proof your home areas before letting the rabbit out. They love to chew on wires and destroy paperwork, and should always be supervised.
