Facts about TAHITI

  • Breed: Dutch
  • Color: Red
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Standard
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: A026721
  • Hair: Medium
TAHITI (ID #A026721) is a neutered male red-and-white dutch rabbit. He was about 6 months old when he arrived at the shelter in June of 2013. He came to the shelter with a severe malocclusion so he couldn't eat. He was so thin, you could feel his ribs. Because his malocclusion was so severe, his front teeth were removed. He can now eat with great gusto and has been filling out nicely. He loves veggies and pumpkin, orchard grass and alfalfa hay, but is not too crazy about pellets. He was very nervous around people when he first came to the shelter, but he's slowly coming out of his shell now that he knows humans are not all out to get him.Tahiti is currently in foster care due to his special diet, so if you're interested in meeting him, please email us at info@petprojectfoundation.org or call 949-595-8899 to arrange an interaction.

Please review this very informative rabbit intro video before you adopt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE6DN7SF5Rs

STARTING THE ADOPTION PROCESS:
You need to be 18 years or older, complete an application, and be interviewed. It is strongly recommended that all members of your household interact with the rabbit to make the best match for everyone, and that the rabbit you wish to adopt will be an indoor pet. You must be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. We reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.

Applications are only accepted by FAX (949-366-4765), mail or in person. Sorry, no applications through the Internet. The adoption fee for rabbits is $45, which covers the following: spay/neuter, microchip, litter-box training, copy of The House Rabbit Handbook, "New Owner" folder, bag of Timothy hay and pellets, and one free basic health examination within 5 days of adoption from a veterinarian on our list.

Rabbits make excellent pets. They are intelligent, social animals capable of forming lifelong bonds with their human companions. Their playful antics will warm your heart for years to come. A well-cared-for house rabbit can have a lifespan of seven to ten years or longer.

Please call 949-595-8899 to check if your desired pet is still available or the status of your application. Shelter Hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, & Saturday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Wednesday: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM. Sunday: Noon - 3:00 PM. We are CLOSED Mondays. We are very proud of our shelter, it is clean, welcoming, freeway close, and was voted "Best Place to Adopt" by the Orange Coast Magazine!

About Pet Project Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

Lost and abandoned animals have a second chance at a good life– thanks to the Pet Project Foundation. The mission of the Pet Project Foundation is “to enhance the quality of life of all companion animals in a pro-humane manner through compassion, responsibility, education and service”. Nowhere is this mission better exemplified than through our ongoing support of the shelter. This special shelter provides food, housing, exercise, medical care, and love for homeless animals until they are reunited with their owners or permanent, loving homes are found.

Over 38,000 animals have come through our shelter where they are safely housed and loved until permanent homes can be found. Our pro-humane philosophy ensures that no adoptable animal will ever be euthanized, regardless of how long it takes to find them a new home. This philosophy comes at a price, however. It is through both the dollars and volunteer-man-hours donated by the Pet Project Foundation that we’re able to preserve our pro-humane approach.

In addition to supplying funding for ALL food and medical care at the shelter, PPF also has contributed dollars for retractable awnings over the dog kennels, a new industrial laundry room, addition of a special area for rabbits (the Rabbitat), upgrades to the medical treatment room, and improvements to the cat room. PPF also contributes a significant portion of the funding for the kennel attendants’ salaries, and underwrites a program for residents of San Clemente and Dana Point whereby pet owners can be reimbursed for a portion of the cost of having their dogs, cats or rabbits spayed or neutered. PPF also recently funded the hiring of a full-time trainer for our shelter dogs to ensure each dog receives positive reinforcement training through treat and praise prior to adoption.

Pet Project Foundation volunteers log over 26,000 hours of service at the shelter each year. These dedicated volunteers walk dogs, calm the fears of anxious cats, hop and groom rabbits, and perform a host of administrative tasks - along with dozens of other activities needed to help keep the shelter in operation. It is through the help of these volunteers – and the generous support of residents and businesses in our communities – that we can ensure the care and comfort of these animals.

Come visit the shelter that was voted “Best Place to Adopt a Pet” by Orange Coast Magazine. See for yourself the wonderful care these homeless animals receive – and just maybe you’ll find a new friend and companion in the process!
