Charlie is an owner surrendered rabbit that came to us neglected and starving. He enjoys eating a lot, and will stand up on his hind legs and beg for food. He also empties his water bottle every day, because he is so used to not having water regularly before he came to our rescue. He gets too excited when we feed him, and will pounce on the food or on your hand. He does not intend to scare or hurt you, he is just used to going hungry before he came to us, and he gets so very excited at meal and snack times. Because of this, he must go to an understanding and patient home who will be aware of his fear of hunger and thirst, and who will patiently provide for his daily food and water needs. He also must go to a home with no small or young children, preferably no children at all, as we don't want to be concerned that the kids might put their fingers in his cage and him mistake it for a carrot. He is territorial of his cage if a man cleans it, so we recommend removing him to a neutral location before attempting to clean his cage. Charlie appears to have issues with men, so a home where the woman is the primary caretaker would be best. Charlie is neutered and is available for adoption only to the right home.
Rabbits are a ten year commitment, and should be researched before choosing to adopt one. FOOD: Rabbit Pellets, Timothy Hay, and fresh green leafy vegetables such as kale, romaine or butter lettuce, arugula, parsley, etc. Fresh fruits and berries make a great occasional treat. We recommend an indoor home for rabbits. NO wire bottom cages as they cause foot injury which requires a veterinarian's care. Plastic solid bottom cages only. Our rabbit adoption fee is $50.00. We accept cash, or a check made out to Acadiana Humane Society. If it doesn’t work out, we ask that you please return rabbit to Acadiana Humane Society. Thank you!
