When you enter the front lobby of the Connecticut Humane Society in Newington a pair of big red eyes greets you with a look just begging you to come pet the soft white fur that surrounds them. The photo of Lilly, a white American rabbit is hard to resist but if you’re a rabbit lover when you meet her in person your heart is sure to melt.
In this Pet of the Week segment, Lilly is the star and she’s looking for her home.
Lilly needs a family who will show her lots of love, cuddle her often and keep her socialized, Alicia Wright, spokeswoman with the Connecticut Humane Society, said recently, adding that Lilly has been neutered and is great with children of any age.
"Lilly is a sweet bunny who wants nothing more than to find her forever home," according to the Connecticut Humane Society website.
