4 Paws From HAWS: Hop To It!

Check out two adorable rabbits currently up for adoption at our shelter at 701 Northview Road, Waukesha!

As one of the few shelters with a dedicated Small Animal Ward, at Humane Animal Welfare Society we always have plenty of small and furry friends up for adoption. Here are 2 of our favorite buns!

My name is Silky and I am a very elegant gentlebun (check out my video – the HAWS volunteers have clicker-trained me!). My white coat shaded with silver glistens in the light, which may be why my breed is called “Satin.” I was someone’s Easter gift that they grew tired of...can you believe that?!  I am very curious and friendly…and a bit hyper-active because I don’t like to sit still.  A large cage and several hours a day outside of it to have my bunny adventures is a must!  And here’s a bonus:  I use a litter box!

And don’t forget me, Jaxon!  I am a handsome young fellow as you can see but I am also very large – I’m what is known as a “Checkered Giant” and weigh about 11 pounds.  I was brought into HAWS after being found outside wandering around lost, but I am super-friendly.  I can be easily excited and like activity, so I’ll need a large space to live in...actually, the perfect home for me would be an exercise pen like this!  I will need to be out of my cage everyday to scamper about and explore, and I’ll really enjoy hanging out with my new family.  I do love a good head rub and will lay my head on your lap for you to do so.  My litter box training is going really well, too!

To learn about caring for house rabbits, log onto www.rabbit.org, and for great rabbit cage ideas check out THIS neat site.  All rabbit adoptions at HAWS include a free copy of the House Rabbit Handbook:  How To Live With An Urban Rabbit.  Wear your bunny pride on your sleeve:  purchase one of special edition Year of the Rabbit t-shirts (both short and long-sleeved varieties are available).
