Need some bunny to love: Ontario SPCA kicks off 'Rabbit Adoption Week'

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society says bunnies make great companions, as they are quiet, bond closely with their adopters, love to play and are smart and easily trained.

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is kicking off a week-long effort to pair up the 50 rabbits in its care with forever homes.

The SPCA is hosting 'Rabbit Adoption Week' across the province in culmination with International Rabbit Day on Saturday, September 25.

The rabbits, from min-lops to Lionheads and everything in between, are currently being cared for at animal centres and foster homes across Ontario.

In a release, the SPCA says bunnies make great companions, as they are quiet, bond closely with their adopters, love to play and are smart and easily trained.

"Like any animal, rabbits can bring much love and joy into the life of their adopter," says Ontario SPCA and Humane Society spokesperson Tracy McElman. "If you have been thinking of welcoming a furry friend to your family and are prepared for the lifetime commitment of caring for a rabbit, there are many adorable bunnies who would love to join your family."

The adoption fee for a rabbit is $130, which includes spaying/neutering.

You can visit ontariospca.ca to meet rabbits available for adoption, or to donate toward their cost of care.
