FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Roquefort is a curious, adventurous little bunny with a healthy love of leafy greens.

Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say:

“Roquefort is a nine-week-old bunny we have available for adoption here at the shelter.

Roquefort initially came in as a stray, so we don’t have any past information on him. Since being here at the shelter, his personality has really shined through. He is a very sweet, curious, adventurous little bunny.

He has done excellent at using his litter box so far here at the shelter. He loves his fresh greens. In case you’re not familiar with bunnies, a few things that these guys need, they should always have Timothy hay available for their teeth and GI health. They should have a measured amount of pellet food daily as well as fresh greens.

Roquefort currently drinks out of a water bowl, but he also has a water bottle available for him. If you are interested in meeting Roquefort or any of the other bunnies, cats, turtles, or dogs we have here at the shelter, please give us a call!”
