Wabbit Wednesday - Meet Floppy
Floppy is the Bunny of the Week at Western PA Humane Society. He is a 3 year-old Lionhead, who was surrendered on December 14, 2010.
Floppy is a sweet little bunny, who was surrendered because he was given as a gift to a child who couldn't care for him. He would make an excellent pet for a first-time bunny owner.
He is confident and cheerful, and he loves to run with paper or toys in his mouth. He also loves his greens (bib, romaine, red leaf, kale), and he enjoys head scratches. He is litter-trained and available for adoption.
Sadly, Floppy is a perfect example of why bunnies should not be given to young children. With Easter just around the corner, it's important to make people aware that rabbits are not toys.
Most rabbits purchased as gifts end up in shelters or dumped. Here's a flyer from the House Rabbit Society that you can print and post to help make people aware of the issues involved in caring for a rabbit.
If you have room in your heart and your home for a bunny AND you're willing to make a 10 year commitment to its care, please contact Western PA Humane Society or visit Petfinder.com.
