WASHINGTON -- Like big ears and carrots?

The Washington Humane Society is holding a bunny adoption event this Saturday and Sunday. "Rabbit Rally Weekend" will take place at Petco (3505 Connecticut Ave. NW) from 1-3 p.m.

Trivia time: It has been theorized that New York's Coney Island was named for its sizable population of wild rabbits.

Below, a handful of the bunnies available for adoption. Jacqueline H. Toppings, director of Marketing & Communications for WHS, tells HuffPost there are nine bunnies WHS has available for adoption altogether. Sweetening the pot: some of the bunnies are being trained to walk on harnesses.

Eight-month-old Ginny is very friendly. She and her brother Peter (also listed), are a bonded pair, and are looking for a home together. Both were born at the shelter, are good with cats and are fine with dogs. To meet them, contact their foster parent Dena at dfitzgerald@washhumane.org.
