Meet Laverne

All about Laverne

Laverne is a 3 months old female Rex rabbit and has been with us for 56 days.

Hello from Laverne! She is a Rex mix bunny estimated at about 2 months old. Laverne and her sister Shirley are looking for a home that will take them in as foster to adopt while they wait to be spayed, and then can become all yours afterwards! Laverne is more skittish than her sister, and tends to flee from hands at first. However, when you first approach their enclosure, they both come running up and want their sweet noses rubbed. Once you sit with Laverne and give her a chance to get used to you and the idea of pats, she does enjoy a little head rub. The two girls look extremely similar, but Laverne has a flatter coat and has a couple more wrinkles in her forehead.

Rabbits have a vegan diet that consists mainly of high quality Timothy Hay, supplemented with 1/4 cup of hay-based pellets per day. Rabbits can eat fresh veggies, with the amount adjusted to suit your bunny's individual needs, but about a handful a day is a good starting point. They can eat romaine, green & red leaf lettuce, and dandelion greens, among others.

Rabbits need at least 4ftx4ft of open space to roam around in, with room for their food, water, litterbox, enrichment, and a spot to hide. They should be kept on a solid surface and not wire, as this can hurt their feet, with some soft bedding. Rabbits are social creatures and unless otherwise stated, should be kept with another rabbit friend.

Our shelter is open every day except Monday from 12-4. If you are interested in this pet, please call us at 978-452-7781, email, or stop by the shelter to request an adoption application.
