“The man who chases two rabbits, catches neither.”

Domesticated rabbits are extremely cute and can make wonderful pets — and KCAC just happens to have a sweet Silver Marten Rabbit available for adoption right now that’s, quite literally, cute as a button.
Button is 4-years old. With a black and tan shiny coat on top of a silver layer, she is definitely a princess, and she feeds on mostly hay.
Although a little timid by nature, Button is very happy to get a chance to get out of her cage and roam around her environment and independent enough to go back in her crate when it’s time. She will make a wonderful new addition to a family that is willing to work with her on socialization.
Easter might be over, but it’s not to late to bring home your very own bunny!
Button’s adoption fee is $20.
Congratulations to Luna, another bunny that KCAC took in. She found her forever home a few days before Easter and we know she will love all the cuddles she’s going to get.
Congratulations to Sophia, the Siberian husky puppy. She’s finally getting the fresh start that she deserves. We are so happy for you, Sophia!
