Baby Rexy - Needs a friend!

Pet name:
Baby Rexy - Needs a friend!
Our little baby Rex girl is curious and playful! She is about 6 weeks old and was rescued recently with her two brothers. We dont normally adopt out bunnies this young because they should be with their mother until they are at least 8 weeks old. The babies were discovered outside in a residents yard. We found their mom the next and reuinted them, but as she got ready to give birth to her next litter, stopped allowing these babies to feed, so they were weaned early. 

Please note: we are going to be stringent with our adoption policies because she is so young. She will need to go to a home that already has a bunny that she can bond to. She can be fixed when she is 6 months old. Because baby bunnies are so fragile and can easily break a leg or their back, she should not be in a home with kids under 12. 

Adoption fee: $100 for the spay

About bunnies:
First time rabbit adopter? We can send you information about housing and care. You should also know:

- Bonding bunnies - both buns must be fixed or there will be territory issues and aggression. Read more on the House Rabbit Society website. Or contact us about low cost spay/neuter.

- Bunnies are NOT starter pets. They need (indoor) space and attention like a small dog would. They need hay, pellets and greens daily. And any health issues (not eating, etc.) require immediate attention.

- Bunnies are NOT a good fit for young kids. They are fragile, startle easily, usually dont like to be handled, and do not do well under stress like the general household noise that comes with little ones. Trust us, its a lot of work you dont want to take on if youre caring for small kids. If your little one absolutely wants to meet a bunny, we can set up a visit with one of our more mellow bunnies and theres no commitment involved :)

- Bunnies can be somewhat skittish but they are also fun. If patient and understand that bunnies get comfortable with people on their own terms, youll make a bunny friend. Spending time on the floor with them and offering treats is a great way to bond with them.

- Bunnies MUST be housed indoors. RHDV-2, a highly contagious and fatal wild rabbit disease in now in Florida and transmitted in the ground. Domestic rabbits cannot tolerate the heat. They also need to be safe from predators and parasites like ear mites. They will be much happier being a part of the family, inside.
