Elaro was born at the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. Elaro's mother was abandoned in a box at a veterinary clinic, she was brought to the shelter where she gave birth to Elaro and his siblings.
Elaro is a very curious boy and loves to know what everyone is doing at all times. He is a young and active boy looking for a home to call his.
If you are looking for a clean friendly family pet that is relatively easy to care for, does not require a daily walking schedule, and won't tear up your furniture, consider adopting a rabbit into your home.
As with any pet, make sure you do your research to make sure a rabbit is the right pet for you, and that you choose a suitable rabbit for your lifestyle and personality. Some rabbits, such as angoras, require a lot of grooming and take more time to care for than short-haired rabbits. Most have a lifespan of 10 years, and live longer if they are kept indoors. It is important to evaluate the long-term commitment of caring for a pet rabbit.
It is important to be very gentle when handling rabbits because they have a delicate bone structure and can easily injure themselves. When a rabbit is scared or struggling to be free, it will try to escape using its powerful hind legs. However, because of the weak bone structure the rabbit could break, fracture or dislocate its backbone by overextending the spine as it kicks. If your rabbit is struggling when you are holding it, put it down to avoid injury.
Never pick up a rabbit by the ears or stomach. Instead, put one hand under the front of the rabbit and support its rear and hind legs with your other hand.
When you first adopt your rabbit, hold it for short periods of time so it grows accustomed to being handled.
Please note: All pets are ultimately the responsibility of the adults in the home, not the children. Until you, as an adult, are ready for the commitment of caring for a new pet, don't let your kids' pleas challenge your resolve.
