Jade also associated with House Rabbit Connection, Inc., an organization whose mission is to “take in adoptable, abandoned rabbits, provide temporary foster care for them, get them spayed and neutered, and to find permanent, quality indoor homes for them.”
Jade has had rabbits as pets for many years. She knows all their likes and dislikes. For instance, rabbits love tunnels and to be under things, like tables and chairs.
They can make wonderful pets, Jade said. They need to be brushed because they don’t have a mechanism to help them regurgitate.
Anyone contemplating getting a bunny as a pet needs to be educated.
A bunny cannot be kept for a few weeks and then set free outside. Setting a rabbit free could be dangerous for the animal because a domesticated rabbit doesn’t know how to survive in the great outdoors.
The photos of Mickey and Jade shown today were all taken at a rabbit education and adoption event held this spring by House Rabbit connection at Petco in Pittsfield, MA.
