Most of us are ecstatic that Spring is almost here, but this dose of cuteness may just have you wishing to have Winter in your home 24/7 for many years to come!

If you haven't guessed it yet, today's Pet of the Week from Winnebago County Animal Services is a year-and-a-half old rabbit named Winter. If you've always thought of bringing a rabbit into your family, Winter may be the perfect gal for you!

Here's what Amber Pinnon, Volunteer & Adoption Program Coordinator for Winnebago County Animal Services, had to say about Winter;

Meet Winter! This adorable lady is about a  year and a half old. Winter was surrendered due to her owners moving and not being able to take Winter with. Winter loves to sit on laps, be petted, and take little excited bunny runs on the furniture. Winter lived with a dog, cat, and guinea pig in the home and did well!

Winter is very friendly and social and would make a great addition to any household willing to give her the care she needs.

If you've never had a rabbit for a pet before the biggest thing to know is,  they can be littered trained which allows them to roam your home and not be stuck in a cage all day long. For more info on caring for house rabbits, go to

Winter's adoption fee is only $7, and you can fill out an adoption application for her now at
