Taser Roo: A beautiful bunny

Interested adopters can view available pets, like Taser Roo, and schedule an appointment online at azhumane.org/adopt.

Although she has a pretty electrifying name, the only thing shocking about Taser Roo is how adorable and soft she is! Found by a Good Samaritan after she was abandoned in a park, this sweet 2-year-old Lionhead rabbit was brought to the Arizona Humane Society in December.

Taser Roo’s story is a great reminder that unlike her wild cousins, domesticated bunnies are not equipped to live in the wild on their own and rely on humans to help them survive. Luckily, this cute bun was found in pretty healthy condition but spent some time in an AHS Foster Hero home prior to finding her way on the adoption floor.
