Another rabbit will not take your place in his life but will give him a playmate when you are at work or places that take you away from home.
WHS uses controlled settings and has steps in place if a rabbit to rabbit interaction becomes negative.
It is important that the experience is a positive one for both bunnies.
Bunnies need to be spayed or neutered before they interact in a WHS bunny date.
Preferably, both rabbits will have had two weeks to recover from surgery and for their hormone levels to diminish.
The Wisconsin Humane Society recommends doing no more than two bunny dates per visit to ensure that your rabbit is not overwhelmed and becomes stressed by the experience.
If you have decided that you’d like to encourage your bunny to find a buddy, come visit us at one of our campuses to meet bunnies available for adoption!
Rabbits are extremely social animals and will naturally bond with other animals as they do with humans.
If a rabbit spends too much time alone, he can become depressed and potentially anorexic.
It can be frightening to see two rabbits fighting although in their natural environment it establishes rank and order.
Rabbits are not quick to forget and fighting could hinder future bonding success.
