D.C. Animal Watch: Rabbit’s habitat is bumped up to first class

K STREET SW, 200 block, Jan. 27. A Humane Society officer, responding to a call about a rabbit in an apartment, found the pet in a dirty hutch in the living room without proper food or bedding. The officer gave the first-time rabbit owner information about proper care and nutrition. A few days later, the officer returned and found the rabbit living in a gated portion of the room with access to the hutch, a litter box, proper food, water, bedding and enrichment items.

Among cases handled by the Washington Humane Society.
