Plenty of Pets

Hollie is an 11-month-old girl who is spayed and litter box trained. She was in a great home but, sadly, the landlord didn’t allow pets, so she wound up at Honey’s Bunnies. Hollie is a little shy but loves going for walks on her harness.

If you think Hollie is the right bunny to brighten your life, visit the Honey’s Bunnies Rabbit Rescue website or Facebook page, email honeysbunniesrabbitrescue@gmail.com or call 902-476-8876.
