Meet Hazel, Animal Ambassador

Last Updated 6/2/2023in Ambassadors, Homepage


Hazel is a young, Holland Lop Rabbit, who is so full of spunk! As a baby, she was purchased as an Easter gift for a young girl. Unfortunately, the novelty of having a bunny quickly wore off and she was sent to live her life outside on the porch all alone. Luckily, a family friend contacted us to see if we could provide Hazel with a loving, forever home. We are so glad we were able to say YES because she has been providing us with happiness since the moment she came through our doors. She greets us every morning by standing up on her hind legs and begging for head scratches – we are always more than happy to oblige! She is so full of life and moxie and enjoys hopping down the hallways and binky jumping in the air with joy!

Hazel is one of the most personable rabbits we have ever had here at Rescue Ranch. She genuinely enjoys being around people and will almost fall asleep in your arms when you are holding her.

All of our animals have a story to tell. Read about more of our animal ambassadors here.
