Hello! My name is Annie
|Breed:||Florida White Mix||Color:||Albino Or Red-Eyed White||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, housetrained, and in need of an experienced adopter.
Hi! Im Annie! I’ve had some really hard times in my life! First I was found wandering lost in a neighborhood in Decatur. When a nice person took me to the shelter, I thought everything would be ok, but instead it was very scary and the staff said I “wasn’t nice”! Then I went into foster care with someone who didn’t understand me, and she didn’t think I was nice either. So I came to Huntsville Friends of Rabbits, and I am very nice now!
You see, no one understood that I was just very scared of hands. I think I must have been hit by someone and so I don’t like it when people reach out towards me, because I think I’m going to get hit again. But once I get to know you and trust you, I stop being scared. In fact, I actually really like being petted! It feels great, and it’s just what a bunny like me needs – lots of love and petting!
I have been a little shy since coming into foster care, and I’m cautious about new people but I warm up fast. I am a beautiful New Zealand girl with a great personality and a fun-loving nature. I like to go outside on a leash - I'd be happy to take you for walks. I know humans need lots of exercise! I love exploring and enjoy all kinds of toys. I would probably like to be a single bunny as I'm not really crazy about the other bunnies who live with us, although I kinda’ like the cats who live here. I wouldn’t mind having a cat to boss around! I have been spayed and I am fantastic in my litter box - there is just no bunny who is better!
I would love to have a quiet home with adults where I would be encouraged to trust people and bloom into the big, beautiful girl that I really am. If you have some patience and are a kind and nice person, I’ll reward you with lots of love and binkies! How about it – can you give me the wonderful home I so badly deserve?!

The adoption fee is $50 which helps defray the considerable costs of spay/neuter, other veterinary expenses, food, and equipment. All of our rabbits have received a full vet check up and are spayed/neutered. We adopt only to indoor homes, and prefer adult-only homes. We do not adopt rabbits as pets for children. We consider homes with older children, dogs or ferrets on a case-by-case basis.
If you are over 21 and have the time, energy, love and financial resources to care for a rabbit (not to mention a good sense of humor!) we would be happy to talk to you about adopting one of our fabulous foster bunnies! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little about yourself, including why you would like a bunny and your previous experience with rabbits (if any). Please include your phone number so we may call you about the adoption.
Please note we are a little picky – we love these bunnies and since they have already been through the shelter once we want to make sure they have a great home the second time around! We do screen applicants carefully, as well as require a home visit. We adopt only within a five hour drive of Huntsville, AL.

We love our bunnies at Huntsville Friends of Rabbits and since they have already been through the shelter once we want to make sure they have a great home the second time around. We have invested a great deal of time, energy and money and love into the bunnies we rescue, and so we want to be assured that they will get the very best of care in their new homes. It is for this reason that we have the following adoption policies:
• We only adopt to indoor homes. Domestic rabbits should never be kept outside.
• Adopters must be 21 or older.
• We prefer to adopt to adult-only homes. We do not adopt rabbits as pets for small children (under age nine). We consider homes with older children, however, the primary caretaker for the bunny MUST be an adult, and the bunny must be wanted by the whole family! Please be aware that 95% of the bunnies we rescue were pets for young children, and were brought to the shelter because the child tired of them and the parents did not want them.
• Homes with dogs or ferrets are considered on a case-by-case basis.
• We do not adopt rabbits to be residents of petting zoos, as classroom bunnies, or as props for photographers at Easter.
• We expect our adopters to take their bunny to a rabbit-savvy veterinarian for regular check-ups as well as when sick, and to be willing to spend the money for quality vet care. We have lots of great information on local vets and health care and will be happy assist you finding the best options for you and your rabbit.
• Special needs bunnies will only be adopted to people who are experienced
in bunny care and who are financially able to provide the vet care these bunnies need.
• Applicants are screened carefully, and we make a home visit to ensure your home is bunny-ready.
Please note that our adoption fee is $50 per rabbit or $80 for a bonded pair of rabbits. This fee helps our group with spay/neuter costs. All of our rabbits have received full vet check ups and are spayed/neutered before adoption.
If you think that you would be a good adopter we would love to talk to you about our fabulous foster bunnies! Please contact us at email@example.com. Include your phone number and tell us more about yourself and your interest in rabbits. We will call you as soon as possible to discuss the adoption process.
We look forward to hearing from you - and so do our bunnies!
