Rescued Rabbits!!!'s Info...
Rescue Group: A Hoppy Tail
|Breed:||Flemish Giant Mix||Color:||Albino Or Red-Eyed White||Age:||Adult|
Awww, poor bunnies! They were rescued from a lab before any testing was able to be performed on them - PHEW! We're guessing their ages to be 1-3 yrs old. They are Flemish Giants, all female, all white with pink eyes, and there are 4 of them. Very sweet personalities, some extremely affectionate for handling, and able to go home.
Big bunnies are our favorite, very snuggly in the winter time! These bunnies MUST LIVE INDOORS, but can visit outdoors on non-extreme weather days under supervision! They cannot survive the elements outside of heat/cold/wind.
If you would like to adopt a Bunny, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be sure to get back to you right away. The bunnies are living in foster care in Long Valley, NJ.
SOME INFORMATION ABOUT RABBITS
Rabbits don't need constant attention and can get by with only half an hour a day of playing/exercise with their owners... but once you have one, you'll always want to spend more time!
Rabbits do need mental stimulation, such as a partner or toys in their cage, and a variety of fruit or
wood treats not more than every 3 days. Rabbits can litter pan trained in their cage for easier clean up, or completely housebroken. Never keep a rabbit in an outdoor hutch, and only supervised outings with a proper harness should be allowed as your domestic bunny has no defenses against dogs and predators.
Rabbits are affectionate, inquisitive, cuddly pets and make wonderful lap companions when watching your favorite flicks. Won't you consider making a bunny a part of your family?
MEETING A RABBITS BASIC NEEDS:
1. Do not feed your rabbit lettuces, we don't recommend any because of their ability to dehydrate
rabbits too quickly. Carrots, apples, natural banana chips, black sunflower seeds, parsley, papaya
enzyme tablets, basil, dandelions, and popcorn ( no butter) are my favorite rabbit treats.
2. I also insist on fruit/nut tree branches when they are growing fresh (with the leaves still on them) to wear down their teeth. Rabbits need Timothy hay or Orchard Grass - these are hays that should be fed to your bunny. Do NOT give straw or regular hay, there is no nutritional value.
3. Also many people buy alfalfa cubes at the pet shop and too much alfalfa can constipate rabbits. I recommend every three days that a rabbit receive at least one of these 'treats' to help break down the hairballs in their stomach. Because an average rabbit has a softball sized hard hairball in it's stomach and by 4 years old that will eventually kill them if it's not managed carefully.
4. Please also be mindful that Rabbits are highly sensitive to heat, rabbits should be kept indoors
