I just found my forever home and I am madly in love with Charlene, also from SaveABunny. We've been adopted together!
Hi. My name is Orville. As yo can see, I am a very cute, golden boy bunny with harlequin highlights. I like people, but I'm still a little bit shy. I warm up quickly once I get to know that I am safe. I think you'll agree that I have good reason to be a bit cautious....
I was being raised to be eaten for dinner along with a group of other rabbits in a backyard in Oakland. Sadly, unlike cats and dogs, there are no laws against eating a "pet" rabbit. However, there are laws about humane treatment and my fellow rabbits and I were being kept in horrific conditions.
So,instead of being eaten, we were impounded by Oakland Animal Services and taken to the Oakland animal shelter. Only a few of us were considered social enough for adoption, and so a few of my friends went to a sanctuary thanks to A New Hope Animal Foundation, some stayed at Oakland Animal Services and are awaiting adoption and little Eddie and I came to SaveABunny. (Eddie is also available for adoption from SaveABunny).
I am a very sweet boy who just need a little TLC to bring me out of my shell. I will truly blossom and be incredibly sweet and loving in no time at all!
Please adopt me!
