Hello! My name is Count Chocula
Count Chocula's Info...
I am already neutered, housetrained, and in need of an experienced adopter.
I’m Count Chocula! I am a very handsome guy with fur the color of milk chocolate. That’s how I got my funny name! I am a young, active and very intelligent rabbit who would enjoy a home where I had some room to roam and explore. I have been adopted out once, but unfortunately before too long my adopters decided they probably could not afford vet care – even regular yearly check ups which all bunnies need! So now I am back in foster care again. Even though I love my fosterers I really enjoyed the special attention I got from my former adopters and would love to be adopted for real this time!!
I have been neutered and am very good with my litter box. In fact, I could be described as excellent! I am interested in many different kinds of toys – cardboard boxes, which I like to gently chew, toss toys (from the way I throw I could have been a major league pitcher!), wooden chew toys, and willow balls. However, one thing you should know is that I am a little possessive of my things. I don’t like to have them rearranged or I will grunt at you!! I’m not mean though, it’s just my way of communicating, and actually my foster mom just thinks I’m kinda’ funny when I do this!
I’m not too shy, and I like most people a lot. I would like a home with adults. I'm not sure I would be good with kids because of my gruntiness - I might scare them even though I don't mean to! I’m an active and happy guy and I would like a home where I got lots of attention and there were things to keep me busy.
And now, a message from Huntsville Friends of Rabbits:

Our adoption policies:
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!
