Hop to Adopt! Seattle Animal Shelter Waiving Rabbit Adoption Fees Feb. 13-17
In recognition of national Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS) is waiving adoption fees on all rabbits adopted Feb. 13-17. There are currently more than 25 rabbits in the shelter and SAS foster homes. Placing those rabbits into forever adoptive homes will help free up space in our foster program and shelter to care for more pets.
With this special offer, made possible through a grant from the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation, adopters will not pay any fees for a rabbit during the promotion. Regular adoption fees are available online at http://www.seattle.gov/animalshelter/adoption-fees.htm.
"This timely grant from the Foundation allows us to find loving families for our adoption rabbits so that my staff can focus on caring for the other various animals in our shelter," says Shelter Director Don Jordan.
These discounts apply to rabbits in the shelter and in foster care. To schedule a meet and greet with a rabbit in foster care, please call (206) 684-0685 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The adoption package includes:
The Seattle Animal Shelter will also highlight the rabbits available for adoption at a Cool City Pets adoption event at the shelter on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 1-3 p.m. Volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions and help you meet the rabbits and all the other critters available for adoption.
Rabbits make excellent pets. They are intelligent, social animals capable of forming lifelong bonds with humans. Whether housed in an apartment or a home, the quiet, well-mannered house rabbit can be a welcome addition to any family.
Before choosing to adopt a rabbit (or any companion animal for that matter), the Seattle Animal Shelter recommends asking yourself the following questions:
Persons who cannot adopt a rabbit at this time but would like to make a difference can consider making a donation to Help the Animals Fund or contact the shelter to learn more about foster care opportunities for rabbits.
