Dupage County Animal Care and Control offers a unique program in which prospective adoptive individuals get an email each week with the picture of a pet in need of a forever home.
This week's pick is Ranger.
Ranger is one of many rabbits up for adoption at DCACC.
The website describes Ranger as:
"Ranger is a one year old Hotot rabbit. Hotot rabbits also referred to as the “Eyes of the Fancy” rabbits, are known for their white bodies and the beautiful black outlines of their eyes. Hotots are known for their affectionate and playful personalities. Ranger is mellow and calm when being held. He is neutered and is doing well learning his litter box. Rabbits are the third most common animal surrendered to shelters. Ranger’s family turned him in stating that they did not have enough time to care for him. Ranger will require a family that can commit to spending time with him, not only will he need his cage cleaned, but will need people to spend time with him, play with him and make sure that he gets his daily exercise. To adopt Ranger or any of the rabbits at DCACC, we require that everyone in the household meet the rabbit, any dogs or cats will need to be current on their rabies vaccine, and Ranger would need to be housed indoors. February is “Adopt a Rabbit” month. Anyone that adopts a rabbit during the month of February will be entered into a raffle to win an amazing rabbit basket of goodies."
If you are interested in adoption, visit the shelter at 120 N. County Farm Rd, Wheaton or call 630-407-2800.
