September is the perfect time to “free” a bunny from the MSPCA as the standard rabbit adoption fee will be waived from Sept. 10-25 as part of the organization’s annual “We Got Buns, Hun!” adoptathon.
 
The MSPCA has dozens of rabbits, large and small, young and not-so-young, currently bunking down at its shelters in Boston, Methuen and Centerville on Cape Cod.
 
All rabbits adopted from the MSPCA are spayed or neutered to ensure they cannot contribute to the pet over-population crisis, and they receive thorough behavior and health checks.  Adopters who take home rabbits from the MSPCA’s Boston and Methuen adoption centers will save $75; those who adopt from the Cape Cod center will save $55.
 
Rabbits make wonderful pets – and can even be litter box trained!  And the MSPCA’s Website is replete with rabbit care tips and tricks: https://www.mspca.org/pet_resources/the-perfect-home-for-a-rabbit/
 
As an added incentive, the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center will host a “Rabbit Care 101” session for new adopters on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 9:30am to 11am.  Attendance is free and visitors can shop for rabbits after learning more about them.  The Boston adoption center is located at 350 S. Huntington Avenue in Jamaica Plain.  A separate rabbit care 101 will be held from 11am to 12pm at the MSPCA’s Methuen adoption center located at 400 Broadway in Methuen. 
 
The MSPCA hopes to place dozens of rabbits into new homes over the course of September.  Attached are a few photos of adoptable rabbits who hope to spring free this month.
