Isabella - Rabbit
DOB: January 2005
Weight: 7.5 lbs.
Isabella was lucky to be rescued from an abusive situation and brought to the zoo sanctuary for a safe and loving home. Nicknamed "Bella" (to avoid confusion with fox Isabella), she is in the zoo’s outreach program. She is a furry ambassador helping share the zoo’s philosophy of "Teaching responsible human behavior toward all animals."
Unfortunately, along with some confiscations due to abuse, there are also over 50,000 rabbits voluntarily given up to shelters each year. Far too often people buy rabbits as pets when they are cute little bundles of fur, only to abandon them as they grow.
