Pet of the Week: A bonded pair of bunnies patiently waiting for their new home

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – Caraway and Tarragon are a bonded pair of 1 year old Havana rabbits. They’ve been at Dakin Humane Society waiting for the right home. Lee Chambers introduces us to them.

Caraway and Tarragon

Breed: Havana Rabbits (both)
Age: 1 year (both)
Sex: Spayed female (both)
Color: Black (both)

Background
It’s been six months since Caraway and Tarragon were brought to Dakin from another animal organization, and we really want to see them go to a nice home. They’ve been waiting a long time!

Caraway and Tarragon used to be very timid but have made remarkable progress in sociability recently. They will take some time to warm up, so you should approach them calmly and pet them once they have come to know you. Apple branches are their favorite chew toy! Like most rabbits, these girls love their leafy greens and it’s especially important to give them kale and strawberries to help them build up Vitamin D! Come meet these two at our Springfield Adoption Center.

Dakin’s Community Spay/Neuter Clinic – Now Booking with Shorter Wait Times
Due to the popular demand for high quality affordable spay/neuter surgery, Dakin’s Community Spay/Neuter Clinic, located at our Springfield Adoption Center, has added a second surgical team so clients aren’t waiting as long for their appointments! Our Spay/Neuter Clinic opened 10 years ago and we have performed over 89,000 surgeries, making us one of New England’s leading spay/neuter providers. There are very real advantages to spaying/neutering your cat or dog, including:
Spayed/neutered pets are more affectionate companions and exhibit fewer behavior problems, such as aggression, spraying urine in your home (urine marking), and embarrassing humping (sexual) behavior
Spayed/neutered pets are less likely to roam, run away, attract other animals or get into fights
Certain cancers of the reproductive organs are eliminated, and the chance of breast cancers in both cats and dogs are significantly lowered, as is the chance of prostate disease and rectal cancer
