Stout, American rabbit

Stout is a charming male American rabbit staying at San Diego House Rabbit Society.

Stout has been vaccinated.

Notes from his caretakers:

This cute little guy was rescued from a hoarding situation. He has a deformed hind leg that he sometimes holds tucked a little sideways and on days he is extra active you can hardly notice it at all! He will need a home that can accommodate his more difficult days with his leg, as well as bring him to the vet for monthly VOM treatments.

Rue, American rabbit

Rue is a female American rabbit being kept at San Diego House Rabbit Society.

She gets along well with children and has been vaccinated.

Rue's current caretakers say:

She is a good-natured, easygoing girl who was surrendered to rescue because her family felt she wasn't getting the attention she deserves. She lived in an outdoor hutch and rarely got out to run. She's now in a foster home where she's getting all the love and exercise she craves.

Willow, Dutch rabbit

Willow is a darling female Dutch rabbit and New Zealand rabbit mix currently housed at San Diego Humane Society.

She is vaccinated and spayed.

Willow "tells" her current caretakers:

I was brought in by my previous owner on Dec. 14, 2019. At SDHS: I have been spayed/neutered and microchipped. I am receiving great care and am excited to find my new home! Why I am the one for you: I'm bashful, shy, introverted, timid and coy. I'm still learning how to trust people. I will need an experienced family who is willing to go at my pace and offer me the right environment to thrive. A home with adults-only or teenagers who understand my boundaries would be most successful for me. Weight: 6.5 pounds; age: 2.5 years.

Scout, macaw

Scout is a female macaw in the care of Parrot Education & Adoption Center.

Scout will get along great with your dogs. She is looking for cat-free forever home. Scout is vaccinated.

From Scout's current caretaker:

Scout is a 27-year-old, DNA-sexed, female blue-and-gold macaw. She has only had one owner since she was 10 weeks old. Unfortunately, her owner, who has loved her dearly, is unable to care for her further. Scout has had excellent care and balanced diet her whole life, and is used to being part of the family. She is a good bird, funny and smart, and just needs the right person or family to love her for the rest of her days. She is used to dogs in her previous home.

Picasso, macaw

Picasso is a male macaw being kept at Parrot Education & Adoption Center.

Picasso is looking for a cat-free forever home. He has been vaccinated.

Notes from his caretakers:

Picasso is a 29-year-old DNA-sexed male. This blue-and-gold boy is friendly with everyone, male or female, and steps up well. Picasso is very vocal and animated, but will take food from your hand gingerly. We are continuing to trim his bill to bring it back into alignment and correct his bite. He loves to take baths and view the world from his outdoor aviary.
