Rescue Me ID: 16-04-21-00503Little Guy (male)

Rabbit    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    This little guy is inquisitive and has high energy. He's also a bit skiddish (but I guess you would be too if you were a small rabbit). The product of a surprise litter (his dad was an escape artist), but what a sweet surprise. This guy needs a calm, quite environment given his high strung nature. Keep plenty of food, hay and water and a clean litter pan in his cage and he's happy. Absolutely NOT an outdoor bunny. He needs companionship. Adoption fee is for serious bunny adopters and will be donated to the Humane Society.

Animal ID: RR09Rambo aka Drake (male)

Rabbit    Age: Young Adult

Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Rambo was surrendered to the rescue after the owner contacted the rescue group and stated that they needed to re home because it was not getting along with the other rabbit. Rambo was said to have been found by the owner as a stray and they had the intentions of keeping him; however it didn't work out due to the conflict with the other house rabbit. Unfortunately, the condition of Rambo was the most severe case of neglect that we have seen so far. Rambo was barley over 2 pounds and every bone in his body was showing from starvation. He was so severely matted that he had to be sheared down and he was covered in urine and poop. The mats were ... (Read More)so bad that he couldn't poop and he had a prolapsed rectum. After much TLC and Vet Care he is on the mend. However due to his history of neglect we are only taking applications for his adoption. The new owner MUST have experience with the breed due to the high maintenance of the breed. He must be brushed out daily, rear feet and rectum wiped daily. He needs to be de-shedded monthly and groomed with shears if necessary to prevent matting. His teeth will need to be checked bi-monthly for malocclusion and trimmed by a Veterinarian. Applications for his adoption must include Veterinary references. The adopt process will not be finalized until all papers have been returned and confirmed by our rescue organization. Rambo is working on his litter box skills.. due to the neglect he suffered he is behind the eight ball with his bathroom manners. UPDATE: Rambo has good litter box skills at this time. However due to his extremely high maintenance breed we are only taking applications for his adoption. Mandatory enrollment of Advanced Rabbit Care Course is a requirement for his adoption. There is an additional fee for this course. It is a three hour class that will be taught at your home once the applications have been approved. (Less)

    Speckles's Info... I am already spayed and purebred. Speckles's Story... Speckles was abandoned with another rabbit after they had to move. They were put outside and left on their own for over two years before a neighbor was able to successfully trap them.

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!
