Animal ID: 11291305Sophia (female)

Rabbit    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed 

    Sophia is a 5 year old albino Lady that has lived a life of giving and is now ready for some much deserved R&R with a family that can truly appreciate her wonderful attributes. Sophia's story begins in 2007. She and her two litter-mates were sold road-side to a family with three children. Each child picked a rabbit and the family was told all were female. Fast forward to 2008. After living in a hutch, the family realized that one of the rabbits was a male. In an effort to free themselves of responsibility, the family immediately turned all three rabbits, and the two babies that had thus far survived and were rolling around in the bottom of ... (Read More)the cage, to a local animal shelter. Sadly, the two babies did not survive, due to the fact that the mother was too young and scared to care for them. Sadder, the two females were already pregnant again. Sophia thrived as a mother! She gave birth to 5 healthy kits and raised them with love and attention. When they were several weeks old, a person brought in two baby rabbits they had found in a barn and were close in age to Sophia's litter. The two babies were put in with Sophia and she raised them like they were her own. After the babies were weaned, Sophia was spayed and made available for adoption. Unfortunately, due to her color, many people overlooked poor Sophia when choosing a bunny for a pet. After a while, Sophia's cage aggression really began to show. Like many rabbits, she simply doesn't like her 'stuff' touched by anyone but her. She also doesn't like to be petted or touched in 'her space'. Outside of her cage, Sophia does sometimes like to be petted and be involved in the goings on around her. Sophia is looking for a family of adults with older or no children that will respect her need for space, but also her desire for closeness when she's ready for it. Basically, Sophia is looking for cat-people. She would do well in a home with calm dogs and cats. She does not like other rabbits. Sophia has lived with rats and, while she doesn't appreciate their meddling ways, she will tolerate gentle ones that won't chase her too much. But, let's be honest, a little run would not hurt this girl's physique. She's a large-ish bunny. Big boned, really. With a nice chin pooch she earned for being such a great mom! Can you find room in your heart to give back to this bunny? A bunny that was never given a real chance at being the amazing pet she has the potential to be? Please contact Friends of Willow if you would like to meet Sophia. (Less)

Animal ID: 11291306Corona (male)

Rabbit    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered 

    Corona is a little sweetie looking for a home where he will be an active part of the family. He is considered Senior but has never taken a sick-day in his life! Corona's litter box skills are fantastic in a large living area. He does sometimes poop on the kitchen floor at his foster home but that is due to nervousness and with more contact with human activity, that behavior would probably stop. Little Corona jumped from shelter to shelter, to home and back to shelter. He was returned by a couple of families because, like many bunnies, he does not like to be held. If someone scratches his back, massages his shoulders and rubs his ears while ... (Read More)he sits on the floor, Corona is in heaven. However, if someone picks him up and holds him longer than he deems necessary, the teeth come out! Corona has a thick fur coat that is soft and a real pleasure to pet (for you and him!). He would do well in a home with older children and has lived with rats and dogs. He is afraid of rats but will just run away from them. He ignores dogs for the most part so a gentle one in the home would be fine. Corona was paired with a female bunny in a large living space but she was extremely dominant over him and it was thought that he would be happier not spending his life as a punching bag for her tantrums. He may bond with a gentle female bunny or he would be fine by himself as long as he got human attention and out-of-cage time every day. If you would like to meet this sweet, gentle boy please contact Friends of Willow. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rabbit in Maine
    Rabbits can make good pets in Maine if they match your IifestyIe. Rabbits are adorable, soft animals that make popular pets for children. While a rabbit can make a good pet for a child, keep in mind that to be healthy a rabbit requires a quiet, calm living environment. Please only adopt a rabbit if you feel you can create a safe and quiet space for the rabbit in your home. Rabbits can be housetrained to live inside, out of a cage, which dramatically increases their life spans. Rabbits can live as long as a dog or a cat, and unfortunately some people do not approach the decision to get a rabbit with the same seriousness or commitment they might have about getting a dog. Meanwhile, breeders may separate young rabbits from their mothers too early, which damages their immune systems, and pet stores might provide very little information about proper care and nutrition. As a result, countless rabbits die within weeks of being bought. Others are never spayed or neutered, resulting in unanticipated family additions and a major overpopulation problem. Sadly, the majority of these sweet pets are eventually euthanized. Rescue shelters that accept rabbits are often overflowing. If you are planning to bring home a pet rabbit, please adopt!
