Make Mine Chocolate

Get the facts before adopting a rabbit

Thousands of rabbits are purchased in pet stores every Easter only to be abandoned a few weeks later. Please do your research and make informed, responsible adoption decisions. Rabbits are not toys - they are a ten year commitment. If you are not able to provide a life time of care, please choose chocolate this year!

Better care for rabbits, and chocolate bunnies to eat.
Can't disagree with any of that.

It's so sad. I love rabbits. I hate seeing them for sale at Easter. I'd love one but of course with 5 dogs and 4 cars it's not a good idea privabky.

My colleagues at homework help service totally agree with me that rabbit can live as a pat only in that turn if you live in some kind of a village with a big territory were he can spend time outside. They're not dogs and even dogs need a lot of time spending outside.

I had a pet rabbit when I was a child. He had a happy life for 12 years. I had responsible parents. The two facts are closely related.

Very good advice - ditto hamsters. People get them for kids and when they lose interest after a couple of weeks they are neglected for the rest of their life. If you are going to get a child a pet you should be prepared to take on the responsibility for it's care. There, rant over, haha :)

A great PSA - too many poor bunnies don't get a good deal with Easter at all. We are hoping the Easter Bunny brings us some tasty treats.

Yup, mom says the same thing!

The Island Cats said...

This is a message that needs to get out there more and more. Too many bunnies end up in shelters after Easter and that's so wrong.

We agree. You are not buying a pet you are buying a family member

HAPPY HAZEL said...

Oh no! Poor rabbits! :( I saw it on the news, they sell rabbits illegally on the streets in downtown la. So sad! I hope more people can respect the rabbits! <3

Ruby said...

Great post. Bunnies are really not suitable for children. I have had many rabbits over the years and they are a lot of work- more than cats are because you need to make sure they don't chew everything up.

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

Happy Easter! Mommy had a friend in college many many years ago who got a bunny at a farm auction. Her friend said it was the best indoor animal she'd ever had. Course she grew up on a farm (mommy's friend) and knew how to care AND love her animals!
