Hersey was born with her brother, Peanut Butter, at the BC SPCA Kamloops & District Branch. It was quite surprising when a stray rabbit that came in suddenly gave birth to two little kits!

They have now grown, been spayed and neutered, and are ready to find their fur-ever home together. Rabbits are often overlooked at the shelter and can stay the longest, but do make wonderful pets. They need special care, diet, and plenty of room for exercise and enrichment so it is important to do your research before adopting any new animal.

Name: Hershey (with Peanut Butter)
Age: 9 months
Gender: Female
Animal ID: 432212 (with 432213)
Breed: Rabbit
Making it to a shelter is often just the first step on the long road to recovery for sick and abused animals. You can do something to help an animal needing urgent care.
