Our Pet of the Week is Chervil, a 2 month old lop-earerd rabbit available for adoption at Dakin Humane Society. Chervil also has two brothers if you’re looking for more than one bunny!
Breed: Havana lop-eared rabbit
Age: 2 months
Chervil is a sweet 2-month old rabbit looking for a home. He has 2 brothers he shares his cage with (Marjoram and Sorrel) at our Springfield Adoption Center. Like all rabbits, the most important thing in his diet is grass hay, such as timothy, and it should always be available to him. Rabbits also eat pellet food, leafy greens like dark lettuces, collard and turnip greens and carrot tops. Solid-bottom metal cages are best (wire bottoms cut into their feet), and you should always keep your pet rabbit inside to protect them from extreme weather and outdoor predators. Once a day, let your rabbit out of his cage to run and jump in an enclosed room (supervised, of course!). Their antics will amuse you very much, because they LOVE to have “out” time. Just be sure to keep cords and wires away from them to prevent chewing!

Kitten season is coming…and we’re gearing up Nick’s Nursery to help the most at-risk kittens get well and on the road to adoption! Nick’s Nursery is New England’s first kitten intensive care unit, and it’s time to stock the shelves for the summer season. We’ve got an Amazon Wish List put together with much-needed items to treat these orphan babies (https://amzn.to/2uO1P72), and from April 29 through May 19, when you purchase items from this list, your items will be matched up to $2,000 by generous supporters Jan and Bernadette Piepul of Springfield!
