Is a Rabbit a Good Fit For Your Family?

Did you know that a properly cared for rabbit could live up to 15 years?  

Please read our Animal Behavior Handouts about rabbits to learn interesting facts about these intelligent, social animals.  For instance, one of the handouts about rabbit behavior explains how to read their body language and what it means when your rabbit thumps their feet, grunts or sniffs. 

The handouts also provide valuable information about litter box training, chewing behavior, clicker training and why bunnies prefer to keep their feet on the ground and not be held. 

Before adopting a rabbit please do your research, evaluate costs and think about vet care.  If you determine you can provide a good home, Capital Humane Society often has wonderful rabbits in need of forever homes with people who will treat them with kindness.
