Theo and Jack were dumped by their owners and rescued when they were very young. Theo, the English Spot, was given up by his first owners when they decided they couldn't care for him anymore. After a second home, he ended up in a rabbit rescue where I volunteered. I took him in as a foster.

Jack is a Flemish Giant mix. He was dumped outside, abandoned and left to fend for himself. Luckily, he ended up in my friend's backyard, and she rescued him. I decided to foster him until I could find him a good, forever home. He was still a baby - about 6 months, and already over 6 lbs!

Theo and Jack were both neutered, and ready to be adopted. I have fostered many rabbits throughout the years, and through the rabbit rescue, have found wonderful homes for all of them. In their case, that home ended up being with me. They came into my home separately, a few years apart, but both burrowed their sweet selves into my heart. After Jack lost his first bondmate, I bonded him to Theo. They bonded easily, and lived happily together until Theo past away. The photo is from one of their early bonding sessions.

My rabbits have enclosures in my house, and run freely in safeguarded areas. My rabbits play with toys, are affectionate toward one another, my cats, and people. They are litter-trained, and in most ways, easier to care for than cats - and less work than dogs! Still, they require love, effort and commitment. Jack is almost 9, and still going strong. I miss Theo every day, as I am sure Jack does.

Rabbits can make amazing, loving, funny house pets, IF you do your research and are ready to make the commitment. They can live 12+ years, and require vet care just as any pet would. If you decide to get a rabbit, contact a local rescue group. The House Rabbit Society has chapters in almost every state, and can help you find the perfect bunny for you and your family.
