Sisters Harriett and Penelope may look alike, but the similarity ends there. Harriett is the boss and is not shy about making her wishes known. Penelope just wants to get along and be petted and cuddled. This pair of lovely lops would like to meet you! Every rabbit sheltered at BUNS is spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
