Pet of the Week: Bam Bam

Pet of the Week: Bam Bam

Bam Bam is an adult rabbit (approximately 2 years old), who came to us, as so many rabbits do, after being abandoned outside. Bam Bam is a New Zealand breed rabbit. Like most of the breed he is quite large for a rabbit, and docile. New Zealands come in various colors: Bam Bam is all white.

Bam Bam is perfectly litter box trained, and so would do well as a free roaming rabbit with proper rabbit-proofing. He is looking for a quiet home and a family to trust. He would do best as the only pet in the home. He is neutered and microchipped. To learn more about what it is like to be a bunny parent, to meet Bam Bam, or to learn about our adoption process, please visit us online at Cthumane.org. We also welcome our community members into the adoption center 7 days a week at 455 Post Road E in Westport.
