My story

Sterling was abandoned in Nassau County in the winter 2021. A caring resident was able to bring him to safety.

Sterling lives up to his name. He is a first-rate example of what a companion animal should be: sweet, loving, and playful! Volunteers describe him as a “wacky dude who is not afraid to get weird!” You’ll often find him standing up on his hind legs, puppy-like, craving for attention. If you’re looking for a rabbit who will be very excited to greet you and play, Sterling is your man!

He does need some extra care, as he has a digestive disorder called Megacolon. To learn more about Megacolon, please watch:

Ask us about MegaLove, our special needs adoption program!

Facts about Sterling

  • Rescued Winter 2021
  • Estimated age upon rescue: 11 months
  • Megacolon bunnies are more prone to bad bouts of stasis. Anyone considering adopting Sterling would need to keep him on a strict diet and be sensitive to any changes in his litter-box situation or behavior.

Go meet their pets

We don’t have a physical shelter building. The rabbits are fostered in our homes. If you are interested in any particular bunny (or bunnies), we can make arrangements for you to meet them. If you would like a companion for a bunny you already have, we can arrange for several “meetings” and a bonding session to ensure your bunny will be happy with his/her new mate!
