My boyfriend and I discussed what type of pet would best suit our lifestyle (working 8 hours a day, living in an apartment) we are both dog people but recognized that it just would not be a good environment for us or a dog. After doing quite a bit of research we found that a rabbit would be great with our lifestyle especially if the temperament matched what we were looking for. I was adamant about adopting as opposed to buying like one reviewer said, they've seen a vet, have been cared for and really need a home as it is they're last chance.
After getting the run around from the Boston MSPCA (the volunteers were just not knowledgeable about the process and the bun we were interested in was adopted in the mean time) we decided to do a local search.
We came across the House Rabbit Network that had a variety of adoptable rabbits. Our favorite was Twix, so we contacted the Network and within a week's time span we met with the foster family who were extremely helpful/kind/informative about Twix and rabbits in general. I can't write enough to show how helpful and kind the entire family was along with the volunteers! We plan on keeping in contact with the foster family with updates and pictures, they were kind enough to give us their email for any questions regarding Twix.
If you're thinking about getting a rabbit I wouldn't look any further than the House Rabbit Network!
I would recommend HRN to anyone looking to adopt a bun and educate themselves on proper care of this beautiful, but often under-cared for animal. According to statistics, rabbits are now the the 3rd most popular companion animal. However, so many people know little about how to care for a rabbit and they often get abandoned. I have been involved with House Rabbit Network since early 2011, first as a client, now as a grant researcher. This organization is made up of very hard working people who will do whatever it takes to rescue a bunny and protect it until it can get a good home. Ones that cant be rehabilitated due to human cruelty are not left to perish. They are given sanctuary so they can live out their lives in well-deserved peace.
