In recognition of the beginning of the Lunar New Year on Feb. 3, the Seattle Animal Shelter ushers in 2011 as the Year of the Rabbit by showcasing the many rabbits available for adoption. Did you know that rabbits are the third most adopted animal at Seattle Animal Shelter? In 2010, 94 rabbits were adopted from the shelter.
“The Seattle Animal Shelter isn’t just about cats and dogs anymore,” says Director Don Jordan. “Because of our tremendous success in adopting out cats and dogs, we are now entrusted with the lives of all animals when pet owners can no longer care for them. Adopting an animal from the Seattle Animal Shelter is the right thing to do.”
Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are admired, trusted, reserved, generally kind, and have excellent taste. Many of the rabbits currently available for adoption share these qualities. Cadbury is talented and ambitious – she’s looking for a home with prior rabbit experience. Cooper and Queen are admired for their striking good looks and their excellent taste – they would both be great rabbits for first time rabbit owners. Willow is reserved, but very kind. She is looking for a quiet home where she can get lots of affection.
Come meet the rabbits available for adoption from the shelter, located at 2061 15th Avenue W., about a mile south of the Ballard Bridge. The adoption fee for small animals ranges from $5 to $25.
