Everything You Need to Know Before Adopting A Bunny

(March 30, 2024)

While bringing home a bunny can be a joyful experience, it’s essential to remember that these charming creatures require commitment and proper care. At the Houston SPCA, we’re passionate about ensuring all animals find loving homes where they’ll thrive. If you’re considering adding a bunny to your family, here are some essential things to keep in mind:

1. Commitment is Key:
Bunnies can live up to 10 years or more with proper Care. Before bringing one home, consider the long-term commitment required to provide for their needs throughout their lifespan.

2. Space and Environment:
Bunnies need ample space to move around and exercise. A large, secure enclosure or bunny-proofed area indoors will ensure they have room to hop and play safely. Outdoor playtime should be supervised to protect them from predators and extreme weather conditions.

3. Proper Diet:
A balanced diet is crucial for a bunny’s health. Their Diet should consist mainly of hay, fresh vegetables, and a limited amount of pellets. Avoid feeding them foods high in sugar or starch, as these can lead to digestive issues.

4. Veterinary Care:
Just like any other pet, bunnies require regular veterinary check-ups and vaccinations. Find a veterinarian experienced in caring for rabbits to ensure they receive proper medical attention when needed.

5. Bunny-Proofing Your Home:
Bunnies love to chew and gnaw on anything they can get their teeth into, including electrical cords and furniture. To create a safe environment for your furry friend, keep potentially hazardous items out of reach and bunny-proof your home.

Take the time to educate yourself about bunny care before bringing one home. Many resources are available online, including care guides and forums where experienced bunny owners can offer advice and support.

By responsibly adopting a bunny and providing it with the care and attention it deserves, you’ll experience the joy of companionship and make a positive difference in the life of an animal friend.
