Lady – a fluffy, blue/gray dwarf rabbit – poses for her portrait.
She sits surrounded by all manner of adorable props, including a miniature pink bike,
pink and yellow flowers and assorted fruit. So cute!

Lady is a beautiful little dwarf rabbit who is currently staying at the Lawrence Humane Society in Lawrence, Kansas. At just three or four years old, this girl still has at least half her life ahead of her. Hopefully this next chapter will be a happy one; can you help by giving her a home and some tender loving care?

Lady
Dwarf: An adoptable rabbit in Lawrence, KS
Medium • Adult • Female

Lady, being a fertile female rabbit, is a bit stand-offish at first. But with time, she’ll build trust and make for a wonderful pet. We encourage owners to get female rabbits spayed which helps to make them become more affectionate and easy-going. She will need much socialization, and thus we recommend her only to households with experience in caring for rabbits. Lady is probably not suited for people with young children.

Rabbits make fantastic house pets since they are quiet, can be litter-trained, and enjoy living indoors with people. Because they are a smaller pet, some people assume they are good for children. However, they require careful attention and should not be handled without adult supervision. The House Rabbit Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about pet rabbits, is a great resource to learn more: www.rabbit.org

A rabbit’s environment and history with humans have a huge impact on their behavior. For this reason, rabbits from a shelter require patience so they may come out of their shell to be the wonderful pets they are. Regular socialization and exercise, in addition to medical care, are required. But you will find a rabbit to be very rewarding as a companion in your home.

This is just one of many small mammals at the Lawrence Humane Society shelter looking for a forever home right now. Come visit this pet and many others in the “handheld pets room,” at our shelter, 1805 E. 19th Street, Lawrence, Kansas.

More about Lady
Pet ID: XX-XXX • Prefers a home without: young children • Primary color: Blue or Gray

 
Lady’s even the star of her very own video, though you’ll have to visit her Petfinder listing to watch it as embedding is not enabled. That’s okay, you’re only one click away. Okay, three clicks. But still! Easy peasy!

Lady is just one of many rabbits currently available for adoption in the Kansas City area. With several groups dedicated to rescuing small mammals such as rabbits – including LJ’s Briar Patch in Shawnee Mission, Kansas and The Missouri House Rabbit Society – as well as dog/cat rescue groups and shelters that occasionally take in “pocket pets” (Olathe Animal Control, for example, is currently caring for a rabbit named Gertie), there’s no reason to purchase a rabbit from a breeder or pet store when so many are in need of homes! Save a life, gain a lifelong friend!
