Bunnies are NOT for Easter

This was originally posted by the House Rabbit Society of Georgia and I felt it painted a good picture of rabbit care. They are amazing animals and anyone can see why they attract so much attention, but they are not low maintenance animals. They require an attentive owner and are not a good introductory pet for children. Bunnies are NOT appropriate gifts for Easter, please buy the chocolate version instead.

Every year thousands of Easter bunnies die on their way to the pet stores to be sold, or are abandoned by the owners a few months after purchasing them.  Here are some common facts about an Easter bunny that you need to know before making an impulse purchase at a pet store.

For more information reach out to your local House Rabbit Society or SPCA. Another great resource is Save A Bunny which is based in the San Francisco area.
