Do you prefer watching your pets hop instead of walk? Would you prefer to feed your cuddly animals hay, vegetables and various grasses instead of kibble?
Then you might be the perfect person to adopt a domesticated rabbit.
There are more than 300 breeds of domestic rabbit in 70 countries around the world and 49 rabbit breeds that are presently recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association Inc. (Source: Wikipedia) In other words, more than enough varying shapes, sizes and personalities of rabbits to choose from.
And, you’ll belong to an amazing assemblage of people throughout the world that view the domesticated rabbit as the only pet they will ever have or want.
It is, then, our pleasure here at Kane County Animal Control, to announce that Lulu, a black shorthaired rabbit found as a stray in South Elgin, is up for adoption.
We definitely can say she’s special because she is so sweet-natured and cuddly that if given the position of Rabbit Ambassador, she would change a lot of people’s hearts and minds towards owning rabbits.
Lulu enjoys getting petted and is not afraid to hop up into your lap once she gets comfortable around you.
With her dainty looks and bright-eyed countenance, Lulu certainly deserves a forever family willing to give her the love and security she has been searching for.
Congratulations to Rustie, the 9-year-old Beagle that was up-rooted from his secure home and owner-surrendered to KCAC. His new family took one look at him and realized what a wonderful addition Rustie would make to their quiet home.
Ready, willing and able to assist him with his exercise program, the rest of the summer is going to be a blockbuster for this little beagle!
