Maggie and Emma are a bonded bunny pair and are adorably cute! Emma is just as sweet as can be. She is peaceful and lovely, and her little soft tuft of fuzz between her ears makes her as cute as a button! She may need you to convince her at first that you are not scary, but once you do, she’ll come out of her shell. She adores being petted and massaged. And cuddling up against her sister, Maggie, in a little bunny ball will overwhelm you with delight. Maggie and Emma are a bonded pair and therefore need to be adopted together – so you get two wonderful bunnies to brighten up your home! You will fall in with sweet and beautiful Maggie. She is one of the most calm and easygoing rabbits we’ve ever met. She can be a little unsure about you at first, but then once she discovers you offer warm snuggles and tasty carrot treats, all is good in rabbit world. She will let you hold and pet her as long as your heart desires. Maggie’s favorite pastime is sleeping soundly right up next to her sister, Emma, which is too cute!
A few important notes about rabbits: These pets are not just for small children or are supposed to live in a hutch in the yard. They can be completely litter box trained, are relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain, and can be free-roaming pets around the house just like dogs and cats when you are home! Still, they need to live indoors, be picked up in specific ways to avoid back injuries, their nails need to be clipped and they require a healthy diet of high fiber pellets and lots of fresh timothy hay and dark leafy greens (And minimal carrots! Those are actually the equivalent of candy bars to us humans). APS staff will be happy to give you additional information on rabbit care.
Thanks to our sponsors, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive one package of multivitamins from Central Compounding Center South, a complimentary first wellness visit from Park Vet Hospital and a pet pillow from Sew Fine II.
