Adoptable Pet of the Week

Micah is inquisitive and playful. He loves to explore and binky, or jump, (something that rabbits do when they’re happy). He is longing for a forever home where he can entertain his humans with his antics and comical semi-floppy ears. Will you be the one to welcome this furry comedian into your heart and home?

Mark your calendars! The Bunny Festival is Sunday, September 23, noon-4 p.m. It is a fundraiser for BUNS. Visit adoptable rabbits, talk to the vet, have the animal communicator talk to your bunny, watch bunny and guinea pig games, rest in the lagomorph lounge, shop at the silent auction, play in the children’s area, shop at vendor booths.
