Meet Clover*

Clover is a 2 year old Holland Lop with adorable floppy ears. Some interesting things about Clover are:

He’s curious! Must sniff (and sometimes nibble) on any new thing that comes into the house. Hops into bags and boxes to see what's inside.

He’s playful! He loves cardboard boxes, for hiding and chewing, and a long fabric play tunnel.
Warning: Loves to eat Crocs, Nerf darts, and crayons!

He’s easy-going! He's the basset hound of rabbits. Sleeps a lot, maybe one short jog around the living room and then he's happy to hang out in his house for the rest of the day. Doesn't mind a bit of petting on the nose, and is always up for a snack, but doesn't need to be bothered for most of the day.

He’s good with older children! Likes to be pet and stroked. Likes little toys with food hidden in them. Enjoys hanging out in cardboard castles made by the kids.

He’s used to lively/noisy households! Has lived his whole life with households of kids. Literally does not care about noises. Likes to hang out on the side of his enclosure where he has the best view of what's going on.

He’s stubborn! Does not like being picked up. Will nip. Does not like sitting on laps. Will nip. Does not like his nails clipped. Will nip. Does not like being redirected away from where he wants to go. Will nip and then shove his way past you. Clover has lots of opinions and is full of sass!

Clover loves a good head scratch. You can sometimes hear him "purr" when he's enjoying being pet. He has a cute white patch shaped like a star right in the middle of his forehead. He'll sit up and beg like a dog if you have a treat he wants. He will sometimes push a ball around with his nose (but ends up biting and deflating them eventually). He's never nipped anyone who reached through the bars of his pen to pet him. He just really doesn't like being picked up or held.

He's a good hay eater, but will always prioritize pellets and salads like any stubborn bun! He’s very good with his litterbox too. He likes Timothy pellets and every kind of rabbit-friendly fruit and vegetable he’s ever been offered (check out his birthday cake!) He's not a picky eater.

His home base is a crate with an ex pen attached, and he’s content there at night. He free roams a couple of rooms during the day and is very polite. He tends to hang out in his space most of the day. For more information about Clover, please contact lisa.r.anderson@gmail.com

INDOOR HOMES ONLY!

ABOUT FRIENDS OF RABBITS
Friends of Rabbits is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue operating in the greater DC-metro area. We take rabbits at risk of euthanasia from shelters in Maryland, DC and Virginia. We also rescue abandoned and neglected rabbits and assist with large confiscation cases. We provide foster homes and veterinary care for our rabbits, have them spayed/neutered and find them new forever homes through our adoption programs.
Please note: We are not licensed to handle wildlife.

Come Meet Our Pets...
We have adoption events multiple times a month. Events take place at headquarters located in Columbia, MD and once a month in Fairfax, VA. We also have regularly scheduled events in local pet stores throughout the metropolitan region.

Our Adoption Process...
Prior to adoption, we ask that people fill out an application: www.friendsofrabbits.org/adoptionform

1. The adopter must be a responsible adult, which is at least 18 years old. If a family adopts the rabbit, the primary caregiver must be an adult or a responsible older teen. Younger children may do the work necessary to care for the rabbit under the daily supervision of an adult. All adults in the family must agree on adopting the rabbit.

2. We do not adopt our rabbits out as classroom pets. Exceptions would be adoption to the teacher who may bring the rabbit into the classroom on a regular basis.

3. Rabbits are social animals. The adopted rabbit(s) must live indoors in an appropriate size space where they will receive daily interaction with the family. The best possible space would be freedom in a rabbit proofed room. If that is not possible, a dog exercise pen with rabbit safe flooring works well. Other options include a large dog crate or a roomy cage. The best cages are at least 42 to 48 inches long by 24 inches wide. The 24 inch width allows for use of the widest and deepest jumbo litter boxes, which work well for most rabbits. A custom space can also be constructed using shelving material. Caged rabbits need daily exercise time outside the cage.

4. If you are renting your home, please have written consent from your landlord before you adopt.

5. For new adopters, we conduct an interview to make sure that the rabbit will be going to a safe environment.

6. When they are ill, rabbits require a veterinarian that specializes in exotic animals. Be aware that exotic veterinarians can be considerably more expensive than one for your cat or dog. Plan vet visits into your budget accordingly.

7. If you are looking to adopt a companion for your existing rabbit, your rabbit must be spayed or neutered prior to any introductions.

8. The final step to the adoption process is filling out a contract, which is specific to Friends of Rabbits. The cost to adopt a rabbit from us is $90 for a single rabbit and $150 for a pair. The adoption fees include a goodie bag with rabbit care information, necessities, toys and a coupon for discounted rabbit supplies, and cover the cost of the rabbit's spay/neuter. As of January 1, 2022, there is also a mandatory $50 RHD vaccine fee per rabbit.
