Trouble's mom was rescued from a filthy house with hundreds of rabbits. Trouble was born in foster care two days later. We adopted him from Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue when he was 8 months old. It's one of the best decisions we've ever made.
I'm embarrassed to say that before I knew anything about rabbits and we were considering one for Trevor, I started researching different breeds and looking into local breeders. I learned what traits were characteristic of different breeds. Fortunately, I also started looking into rabbit availability at shelters and pounds. I was horrified to see how many beautiful, loving rabbits needed a home. I hadn't had any idea that this was such a problem. Once I did, I knew that a rescue was the only choice for us. We browsed through the list of adoptable rabbits at CCRR and asked to meet three of them, including Trouble. They were all wonderful, but it was clear immediately that Trouble was the right bunny for us.
Contra Costa Rabbit Rescue is raising funds to help with the medical care of the rabbits awaiting their Forever Homes by selling these awesome t-shirts.
We are getting them for the three of us and I'd like to buy one for a lucky reader as well! If you currently have a rescued animal or have adopted one in the past, regardless of species, leave a comment letting me know the name and species. I'll pick a winner on Monday.
Speaking of Monday....
