Our Pet of the Week is more than just your average dog or cat. That is most likely because he is a rabbit!

That’s right, a 9-month-old white rabbit. Named Babbit.

Let the jokes begin.

The folks at Corpus Christi Animal Care Services, however, are serious about finding a new home for this particular bunny. They also want to make sure that he ends up with a family who is ready to take on the possibility of a 16-year-commitment.

It is important for those who are thinking of adopting a pet to carefully consider the responsibility it takes to keep and raise that pet over the course of its life. Far too many animals are being returned to CCACS after being initially adopted, simply because the new owner did not take the time to "count the cost" beforehand. That is one of the reasons every potential pet owner is invited to bring members of their family and any pets they may have to the 2626 Holly Road facility. That way, they can get to know and spend time with any animal they might adopt.

To learn more, drop by any Monday through Saturday from 1:00 to 5:30 PM. You may also call (361) 826-4630.
