Plenty of Pets

Primo (left) and Teetoo are a brother/sister bonded pair of bunnies. They are nine months old, spayed/neutered, and litter trained. They’re big bunnies who are full of goofy tricks. They need to be adopted together as they would be very sad if separated.

To learn more about adopting this pair, visit the Honey’s Bunnies Rabbit Rescue website or Facebook page, email honeysbunniesrabbitrescue@gmail.com or call 902- 476-8876.
