HOUSTON — Twenty rabbits from Arizona will soon have new homes in Houston, Texas.
They were brought to the Houston SPCA where they will soon be available for adoption. The adorable bunnies include a lionhead, Himalayan and Holland LOPS.
They were among over 100 rabbits rescued back in September from "deplorable conditions" at a hoarder home in Glendale, Arizona, the SPCA said.
Some were also transferred from the Arizona Humane Society to a sanctuary in San Antonio. The rest will be placed into foster homes or adopted in Arizona.
Those interested in adopting should visit HoustonSPCA.org regularly for photos, updates and additional information as they become available.
Rabbits make excellent small pets and can be playful, independent and affectionate.
"It’s important to note, they are not short-term pets as some rabbits can live as long as 12 years," the SPCA said. "Also, many rabbits like to be near their owners or sit on a lap rather than be picked up or cuddled. It’s a factor to consider as they may not be ideal pets for a young child."
