Did you know about rabbits?

Did you know that rabbits make perfect household pets, especially for apartment dwellers?

You won’t have to rush home from work to let a rabbit out. They need some time outside of their cage every day but they require less attention than dogs or cats. Rabbits eat salad and hay, and love carrots as treats – in moderation.

Rabbits are curious and friendly by nature, will entertain you with their silly antics, and love to cuddle next to you on the sofa. They’re also quiet and clean – they can easily be trained to use a litterbox.

We have several rabbits available for adoption right now – two huge Angora rabbits, a very small dwarf Lop-ear, an adorable Netherland dwarf with tiny ears and several others. View our adoptable rabbits online, or come to one of our shelters to meet them, and maybe adopt one of these furry loves into your home.


The 3rd Annual Benefit

Paws ‘n’ Claws Pet Sitting is sponsoring The 3rd Annual Benefit on April 29 from 2-6pm. This year the money raised will go towards the Animal Rescue League of Boston-Brewster Branch and The Sampson Fund of Cape Cod.

633 Main Street West Yarmouth, MA 02673
Stop by for a round of drinks at the cash bar and enjoy some hors d’oeurves. There will also be great music, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

Donations can be made towards either organization. If you can’t make the event and would still like to donate to our Brewster branch, you can stop by the shelter on Route 6A and drop off donations, bedding and/or food.

We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, feel free to contact Patti McGann at (508) 385-3638.
