Ben's Story...
Ben is a lovely petite neutered male dwarf rabbit who is seeking a forever home after his human companion lost interest. A sweet, gentle soul, Ben is an indoor only bunny, and would be happy to go home BEFORE the holiday season, as he's sure Santa will be bringing treats he'd rather not share with his fellow foster family bunnies.

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 and cool.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ben, a Long Valley Dwarf was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dwarf for sale in Long Valley, or seeking a Dwarf from a breeder in Long Valley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Long Valley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Long Valley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dwarf breeders who help with Dwarf rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Long Valley paves the way for another one to be saved.
