Bunsworth   

ID: 418378 

Adopted!

 

Bunsworth is a very handsome white-haired, blue-eyed rabbit that came into the care of the BC SPCA Kamloops & District Branch when he was found on October 29, 2016 as a stray hopping at large by a busy road. He was brought into care of the SPCA and after no owner came to claim him he was neutered and made available for adoption.

Sadly rabbits often spend a much greater time in shelters waiting for homes in comparison to cats & dogs. Bunsworth has now been waiting more than 80 days for his second chance at a loving forever home. He is hoping that soon his wait will be at an end.

Bunsworth is a fairly nice and sociable rabbit. He can be a little shy initially but is good about being picked up and held or cuddled. With continued handling he will make a wonderful companion. He is definitely a good looking rabbit, possibly a dwarf/lionhead mix and he seems young perhaps only a year or two old.

Bunsworth will need an owner willing to keep up on his shaggy coat with regular brushings, especially during the times of the year when shedding is highest. Rabbits also need their nails trimmed regularly. He has done fairly well with learning to use his litter box since being in care and is a fairly neat boy.

A home where Bunsworth can be a house bunny to spend lots of time with the family is preferred. He likely would enjoy being with another rabbit as he has shown interest in the others at the shelter. Slow, proper introductions will be important with getting him used to other animals.

Bunsworth likes to have as much space as possible to run around and stretch out his legs, especially before naps. It's important rabbits get several hours of exercise a day to keep them happy and healthy. In good weather he would also likely enjoy spending time in a secure shaded outdoor area where he can munch on clover, dandelions, and such.

Bunsworth enjoys throwing his toys around in his x-pen and going through his tunnel. He will be an entertaining guy to add to your household.

If Bunsworth sounds like the animal companion for you, please contact the BC SPCA Kamloops Branch at (250) 376-7722 or kamloops@spca.bc.ca.
