Pet of the Week: Tamale

Add some spice into your life with Tamale, our Pet of the Week!

This two-year-old shorthair rabbit was brought in by a good Samaritan in late November, and he would love a new home for the holidays.

Rabbits are intelligent and complex animals that do well with people who understand that they are prey animals, and do not enjoy being picked up or held. The best way to bond with Tamale is to spend time with him on the floor, and shower him with plenty of fresh greens and timothy hay!

Tamale is a domestic rabbit, so he should be kept indoors. The nice thing about having an indoor rabbit is that he can come out of his cage for bunny playtime, in a rabbit-proof area of your home. It’s during this supervised playtime that rabbits often exhibit some of their most fun and interesting behaviors!

This gorgeous boy would love a home with people who will interact with him daily to keep him active and social. When rabbits get the space and enrichment they need, they often form deep bonds with their humans. Tamale is one of our Easy-Going Green personality pets, meaning he is adaptable and carefree. He will be a wonderful companion for anyone who likes to go with the flow!

Like all pets from RASKC, Tamale’s adoption comes with a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. Since he is our Pet of the Week, Tamale’s adoption fee has been reduced – so don’t miss out!
