Hop into Love with Joey the Rabbit: Our Pet of the Week!

Shelter Pet Saturday is brought to you by Pitbull Tobacco and More

This week, we’re shining the spotlight on a furry friend who’s all ears – quite literally! Meet Joey, a charming 1-year-old brown rabbit with a heart as big as his floppy ears. Joey is looking for a loving home, and we’re here to tell you why he might be the perfect addition to your family.

Joey is currently up for adoption at Chesapeake Humane Society.  Some fun rabbit facts you may not know…

  1. Easy to House Break and Train: Rabbits are known for their cleanliness, making them easy to housebreak and train. Their meticulous habits contribute to a hassle-free pet ownership experience.

  2. Training Like a Pro: Similar to dogs, rabbits can be trained to respond to their names, sit in your lap, and even perform simple tricks. Surprisingly versatile, a pet rabbit might just become your next skilled companion!

  3. Leash Up for Adventures: Unleash the adventurer in your rabbit! With some patience and training, rabbits can learn to walk on a leash. Imagine strolling around with your furry friend by your side.

  4. Social Butterflies: Rabbits are social creatures that thrive on companionship. Consider adopting a bonded pair to fulfill their need for social interaction. It’s a win-win situation for both bunnies and their human companions!

  5. Playful Pals: Just like dogs and cats, rabbits love to play and need mental stimulation. The good news is, you don’t need fancy toys – simple household items like balls of paper, paper towel rolls, and more can provide hours of entertainment for your bunny.

Discover the joys of having a rabbit as a pet – they’re not just cute, but also smart, social, and ready for some interactive fun!
