Two rabbits that have spent their entire lives in the care of BC SPCA are finally going to their ‘forever’ home.

Monty and Betty Boo were surrendered in December of 2010 as babies to the Victoria shelter as a part of a large group of rabbits.

It took years for them to become comfortable with people and other rabbits.

Having spent their entire lives together, it was very important that Monty and Betty Boo are never split, making it even more difficult to find a permanent home for them. The two were often overlooked due to their size and sometimes due to the fact that many rabbit adopters are pairing an existing rabbit with a single buddy and not looking for a bonded pair.

Monty and Betty Boo were finally adopted in August by the O’Brien family.

Steve O’Brien and his wife currently have four rabbits and a guinea pig, all adopted from the BC SPCA.

In the last two decades, they have opened their home to over 25 rabbits and guinea pigs.
