Shelter Pet of the Week: Meet Tory

Expand your family with this little addition - Tory, a young Hotot rabbit who was abandoned in Astoria and looks to finally have the caring family she needs.

Tory is a young Hotot rabbit who was abandoned outside a garden apartment complex in Astoria, Queens, where a good Samaritan was able to catch her and another rabbit and bring them to the Long Island Rabbit Rescue Group.

Tory was hungry and dirty, but has since been well taken care of by LIRRG volunteers and has shed her dull, dirty coat for a gleaming white one, and finally knows what it is to be fed and cared for.

Tory is spayed and litter box trained.

Rabbits like Tory make great indoor pets, as they are clean, easy to care for, and seek out companionship from their owners. LIRRG also provides education on how to take care of your rabbits for new and seasoned rabbit owners.

If you are looking to open your home to a friendly bunny in need, contact LIRRG at 516-510-3637, or email them at Info@LongIslandRabbitRescue.org

Our kids have never had pets (fish and pet rocks don't count). Would a rabbit be a good starter pet for a 10 & 5 year old? We are hoping for a relatively clean pet that is low maintenance, but likes people and likes to be held. I read that rabbits are not good pets for kids, have fragile bones and don't like being held. Do they require annual vet visits? The pet store highly recommended them as a pet for kids. Would a guinea pig, hamster, cat or bird be a better choice?
