Raya is available to adopt at Marin Humane, along with a ton of other amazing pets who deserve a great forever home!
Get to know Raya:
Raya came to us because the landlord found out about her. Now in foster she is gaining confidence and once spayed will be calmer. Her foster family said she is curious, runs over to greet people, likes to be petted (once she's comfortable with you..on her cheeks), doesn't like to be picked-up and slowly getting used to their dogs. A calm/zen type of home would be best for her because she can startle easily. She loves toys she can chew up! Overall, a real sweet young bun!
Rabbits can be an excellent addition to any family but do require daily attention. And most importantly time out of their cage or x-pen set-up to run around. Keeping them indoors is the best for them because living outside can be lonely, cause illness' or even worse. We'll be happy to educate you on how easy it is to have an indoor rabbit.
All rabbits do require a yearly vet exam. It's critical to make sure all of their teeth (front/inside) are growing properly, heart/ears/weight is where it should be and so much more. Rabbits are the third most common animal (after dogs, cats) surrendered to shelters. It's important for any rabbit adopter to make sure they can make the 10-12 year commitment and be able to provide proper care.
Rabbit's are crepuscular..which means they are most active in the morning, tend to sleep during the day and then active again late afternoon/early evening. All rabbits need time out of their enclosure to burn off energy and to kick up their feet! A long hallway or a room they haven't been in before will do the trick. Getting out of their enclosure for 2-3 hours a day is critical. Not only does it help with boredom, but it helps with moving their food through their delicate system.
Raya should eat unlimited amounts of Timothy, Oat Hay and/or Orchard Grass hay, 2-3 tablespoons of pellets (no dried fruit or nut mixes), a small handful of veggies and an occasional piece of fruit is fine.
Tune into Marcus & Sandy every Friday to meet another cat or dog that could be your family's next pet.
