Don't forget that, in addition to our cats & dogs, the Shelter often has rabbits and other small companion pets available for adoption. We currently have two rabbits and 'Brad' is one of them. Brad is a young male who is very social and enjoys being held. He will make a great indoor pet. Rabbits are very quiet pets and you can teach them to use a litter box!
