In Adopt a Rabbit, we love to share stories about abandoned animals who somehow ended up been rescued and given to families willing to love them. The one we discovered recently was named Panama. This is her story.
The little dog was found by a team of workers in a warehouse in Memphis, Tennessee. Although she was hiding from them, they kept bringing food for her every day.
She used to smile at them from a big pile of tires where she used to hide in. The team decided to take a picture of it and share it on social media in order to get attention and locate a place for her.
Who noticed her?
Foster coordinator for Streetdog Foundation Michelle Quina thought it was really dangerous for a dog to be there, as trucks coming in and out of the warehouse were a menace to the dog. She rushed out to find her.
“We went out there and she was curled up on the side of the road on a little pink blanket,” Quina said.
After the dog was rescued, the team named her Panama, because she was found in a street with that name. It’s not a bad name in our opinion.
Where did she end up?
Quina brought Panama home after a veterinary check-up. There, she found herself enjoying playtime with Quina’s dogs. She looked happy while playing with them.
According to Quina, Panama is already potty trained. Her hope is to find a place where Panama can feel the love from a proper owner who takes care of her needs.
What’s the future holding?
While the dog recovers from the mange she’s suffering, she’s just enjoying life alongside her foster mother. Quina loves to have her there, but someone who’s willing to take care of her should appear soon enough.
These are the types of stories we love to hear in Adopt a Rabbit. Our network keeps growing and things look better for animals as it happens.
Rabbits are awesome pets. They’re small, they require less care than many other animals, and they’re so fluffy and perfect to cuddle with. They’re the best pet for little kids who are just starting to learn how to take care of an animal.
But these little ones have needs too, and if you want to own one, you have to take care of the fundamentals, here are the tips you need to know before owning a rabbit:
Many people say that rabbits need all sorts of stuff to live happily, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Things like salt licks, vitamins, or hard wooden objects to chew on are some of the myths associated with their care.
Honestly, the most important thing about their diet is hay, and hay only. You don’t need anything to wear their teeth down, as the normal grass you feed them with will do the trick.
From time to time, it’s good to let it have some green leafy vegetables too, as they love their flavor and their texture. Carrots could serve as a sporadical snack you give to them. It’s like going to a restaurant!
A clean cage will do the trick, but some things have to be considered. It’s really important to have different cages for males and females. You know what they say.
Place the cage far from any sources of extreme heat and preferably, away from any room with dogs barking inside. Cardboard boxes can do the trick most of the time.
It’s better to have them neutered before adoption, as this control its territorial behaviors greatly. Talk to it daily while you stroke it. They’re highly social animals and love to be touched and handled by humans.
Approach the rabbit from the sides and not from the front, as their eyes won’t be able to pick you up in time and it will get scared. Never lift a rabbit who’s struggling to break free.
Remember that they need a safe space to become the pet you want them to become. They’re a prey species and with more comfort and a strong feeling of security, they’ll become really social and loving in their approach.
Now that you understand what are the most important things to consider when owning a pet rabbit, you can make a choice. Are you someone who’s willing to give love to this harmless, beautiful creature? We thought so!
Most people really like animals, and pets are the materialization of that love. Many of us want to spend time with a pet, but don’t know which is the right pet for us, or even our children. We think there are some animals who work better inside a household, here is the list which showcases them:
This can be pretty obvious. Horses are beautiful and loyal animals and serve their purpose as a utility companion, for the most part. The thing is, there’s not a person who owned a horse and didn’t end up loving it. They also get along with cats! Also consider that youhave to spend a lot of money if you want a horse as a pet.
These are one of the most popular animal companions of all time. They’re the perfect pet for a little child who’s still learning what does it mean to actually own a pet. They’re small little love balls, and they’re totally safe to handle. Just remember to keep their cage clean and let them walk out from time to time, your rabbit will appreciate the love.
Cats are the perfect pet for people who are just starting to care about animals around them. If you want to adopt for the first time and don’t want to spend much time taking care of your new companion, cats are perfect for you. We just warn you, you’re the one who’s going to feel neglected by it, not the other way around.
Dogs are the staple animal when we think about pets. They’re the most loyal animal you can have inside the house. They’re also the smartest animal you’ll have the pleasure to interact with. It’s impossible to spend hours with a dog without falling in love with them. They behave like they care about you, and that can lift anyone’s spirit. They’re the perfect pet for everyone who’s in for the real deal.
While these animals may not be the best ones to cuddle with, they need attention and love from a responsible owner. Fish can be a perfect pet for someone who doesn’t want to clean up that often. Even children will have a blast around the fish tank. If you’re the kind of person who’s dealing with a really difficult schedule but also wants to have a pet of some sort, fish can be the only solution.
Not everyone wants to have pets at home, but the people who do want them and are not familiar with this lifestyle can surely read this list to have a starting point. Don’t miss out on love and adopt a pet right now. They don’t bite! Well, most of them.
