A Spartanburg couple wants to make sure rabbits in need of new homes are cared for, having taken in several bunnies through the years, including one that gets around with a pair of wheels.
Laura McClellan and her fiance recently moved back to the Upstate from California, along with several of their furry friends.
One of those rabbits is named Scooty Poof, who needs a little help with her hop. Poof is disabled and uses a cart to help her get around, McClellan said.
She said Poof doesn't have much movement in her back legs, but she's healthy and young, so they continue to work with her so she can gain more strength and use over time.
Poof uses the cart to help keep her front legs strong too. Because she needs extra care, McClellan said she requires extra cleaning and bedding because she is not litter-box trained.
"She can get lazy, she works the cuteness," McClellan said.
Poof is not the first disabled rabbit rescued by McClellan, who currently has five rabbits she has fostered or adopted.
Previously she had a pair of boys that needed a little extra love and care. She said rabbits are often dropped off at animal shelters but forgotten about or people who try to keep them as pets don't realize how fragile they are.
McClellan's love for rabbits is evident and to keep others updated on Scooty Poof and their other bunnies, they post some videos on YouTube. Watch Poof take a name below or here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LO82IJCaCec
