Rescue Me ID: 17-10-23-00367Lucy (female)

Rabbit    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Rabbits 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Lucy was adopted from a 'family owned' pet store that I wondered into. I was shocked by the tiny cage and poor handling. We have had her for 9 months. She is afraid of people and aggresive towards my other rabbit. I live in an apartment and because they will not bond, I cannot keep her. I think she needs someone with more time to work with her and more space.

Animal ID: 141 17-69George (male)

Rabbit    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    George 141 17-69 Neutered Male Loinhead Mix 12 Months White / Silver 6.5 pounds George was a stray that was found hanging out in the woods off George Anderson Drive in South Wilmington. Our rescue had been notified that there was a domestic rabbit there that needed to be rescued. We first were looking for a female harlequin that we had been sent pictures of but when we got on location George was the first rabbit we spotted. We caught George by luring him with pellet food (we shook the food bin) and he came right up to us and we where able to grab him and secure him. The other rabbit we named 'Ann' was not so easy to catch. We had to set a ... (Read More)drop trap to get her. Once we caught them we surrendered them to Animal Services where they were placed on a stray hold. The owner did not come claim them and they were returned to the rescue after the hold. While at the shelter awaiting to be claimed; Ann gave birth to five babies. George is shy, aloof, nervous, and not for small children. The shelter describes me as a 'Violet' which means that the primary behaviors that were observed was cowering, hiding, and thumping along with a little occasional exploring and startling. I am a shy rabbit. In a home, violets may still cower, hide, thump, and startle occasionally but will still usually blossom out to explore, groom, and present for petting. Violets usually do best in homes with adults only but with a little nurturing can become gentle, sweet companions. They may get along well with other rabbits, but if the other rabbit is a tulip - bullying can occur.

Animal ID: 139 17-67Abigal (female)

Rabbit    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Abigail 139 17-67 Spayed Female English Spot X White / Black 24 Months We were notified that a domestic rabbit was running loose in a mobile home park near Carolina Beach. Abigail was hiding under a shed. We set a trap and she was brought to animal services where she was placed on a stray hold. After the owner did not claim her she was returned to the rescue where she was spayed and placed up for adoption. Abigail is a little on the shy side, but she is very sweet, and active. The shelter describes me as a Rose. These means that I have a mind of my own and it is evident even in the shelter environment. I am often seen chinning, exploring, ... (Read More)head bumping, and presenting for petting. I may have also been seen binkying, headshaking, playing with toys. A few may tail flag or thump occasionally if they see someone or something they dislike. Hiding and cowering are almost never seen in these rabbits. Roses demand a great deal of attention in permanent homes and are not shy in making their demands known. A few of these may get along with other rabbits if they are submissive, but many Roses actively dislike other rabbits and may be difficult to bond, preferring human companionship to do their bidding.

Animal ID: 128 17-55Oleander (male)

Rabbit    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Oleander 128 17-55 Neutered Male Californian (Albino) 24 Months old White / Silver 6.5 pounds I was surrendered to the rescue by someone who drove from Winston Salem NC to Wilmington to make sure that I went to a good home. The person who surrendered me (with a litter of babies and an adult female) said that we were dropped off at her house and 3 days the female adult I was with gave birth to babies. The person that surrendered us to the rescue said they could not find anyone that wanted us other than people who intended to eat us. The female (Blossom) was separated from me because I would not stop marking on her and peeing on her coat. We ... (Read More)were litter box trained until coming to our rescue however, both of us are doing exceptionally well since being separated. Oleander is friendly, sweet, and very outgoing. The shelter describes me as a 'Daisy' which means that I like to explore, groom, and I will present for petting and may occasionally be seen to flop, binky, or thump. I am not shy and I will rarely hide in a shelter. In homes, Daisies particularly like to be stroked and will often present to a person for petting. Behaviors will be essentially the same in the shelter and home environment. Daises are probably the best rabbit for the adopter seeking a rabbit who will tolerate sitting in a person's lap and being petted. Daises usually do well with other rabbits and people (including children) because of these laid back personality traits.

Blossom is friendly, calm, easy going, and sometimes nervous at first until she gets to trust you. We believe Blossom would be better suited to be homed with no small children.

Tulip's rarely flop in shelters as they are not usually laid back. In homes tulips are often entertaining rabbits, always on high alert, very active, interactive, and exhibiting the same wide range of behaviors they do in a shelter environment. Some may not do well with children or other rabbits. Caution should be observed in adopting Tulips to homes with many other rabbits or children.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rabbit in North Carolina
    Rabbits can make good pets in North Carolina 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!
