Rhett and Scarlett

Rhett and Scarlett are a cute bonded pair of 2-year-old male and female dwarf mixes, ID #s 41949 and 41950. Because they are so bonded, Rhett and Scarlett must be adopted together. Rhett has a cataract in his right eye, but it doesn't affect his personality, although it would be best to approach him on his left side so he isn't startled. He's a nice bunny and really loves Scarlett, who has a bit of attitude and definitely wears the pants in the family. But her personality has really sweetened up and they are ready to share their love with their new family. Rhett and Scarlett are available for adoption from the Escondido Humane Society and are currently living in foster care. They are available for a special adoption fee of $45 for both bunnies, which includes microchip, up-to-date vaccinations, spay and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Yes, they are cutie pies.

And they’re so new they don’t yet have names. We’ll leave that to you.

Naming a kitten is a special act, best left to the new kitten’s family of humans.

Check them out! At the Escondido Humane Society
