CAPA Pet of the Week: Linnea | Pets

Linnea is a 1 year old female, black and silver shorthair dwarf rabbit from the Netherlands available for adoption at the Santa Maria Animal Center.

This breed is known to be intelligent, therefore very easy to train but also less tolerant. They thrive in a calm, stable environment with lots of human interactions, and they are active, curious, and playful like all other rabbits. However, dwarf rabbits generally do not like to be hugged or held tightly, so they are not ideal pets for children. They also tend to be nervous and stressed. It takes patience to bond with a rabbit like Linnea.

Linnea’s adoption fees include her sterilization, vaccinations, flea treatment, and health / wellness exam. Its microchip is included thanks to the pet placement aid.

Santa Barbara County animal shelters are closed to walk-in traffic. Visit to see all available animals and call 805-934-6119 to make an appointment to meet the animal of your choice.

The Santa Maria Division of Santa Barbara County Animal Services is located at 548 W. Foster Road.
