KIIK 104.9’s Pet of the Week: Lino
Our pet of the week from the Humane Society of Scott County is Lino, a Lion Head Rabbit, now available for adoption. Lion Head Rabbits were named that because they have a mane around their head reminiscent of a lion's mane.
Lino proved to be very active during his visit with us, which Pam said suggests he'll be rather active in his new home and won't be afraid of some new experiences that freeze rabbits like a statue. She suggested Lino might even reward his owners by doing frequent binky dances. (You can check out a rabbit binky dance here.)
Lino would make a great pet for anyone interested in adopting a rabbit. He'd also be a good first pet for a family with a child ten years or older.
As far as care goes diet is very important. Rabbits need grass hey, pellets along with fruit and vegetables. Lino will need some light grooming to keep his mane from getting matted and the fur out of his eyes.
Lino is currently up for adoption at the Humane Society of Scott County. His adoption fee is $50 because the Humane Society of Scott County spays or neuters all bunnies in their care.
