ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Peanut is an adorable Lionhead rabbit mix that is hoping to find a loving home! He is very social and does very well using his litter box at the shelter. Peanut was surrendered to the shelter because he was being picked on by the guinea pig he was being housed with. Peanut is part Lionhead rabbit which is a breed known for having a lion-like mane around their neck and ears. Peanut may require additional grooming to keep his fur healthy and prevent mats, especially as his coat continues to grow back. He seems to thoroughly enjoy human attention and would do well in a home with plenty of time to dote on him! Animal Control News No items found.
