February is the ASPCA’s Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month, and if you are considering rescuing one of these cute, furry, cuddly little animals, take a little time to educate yourself first. The Library’s Pet Neighborhood has a number of books about raising pet rabbits. To start you on your road to rabbit raising, try Storey’s Guide to Raising Rabbits. This book covers breed selection, year-round care and feeding, housing, handling, and disease prevention and treatment. There are even guidelines for showing your pet rabbit.
For a totally different take on rabbits, check out Funny Bunnies. This book includes details about rabbit breeds, including its origins, coat, behavior, and characteristics. Breeds included are the English Lop, Chinchilla Giant, Netherland Dwarf, and Angora.
