Make Mine Chocolate

If you or anyone you know is considering a gift of a rabbit for a child this Easter, please think very carefully first. Rabbits are wonderful companion animals. They are also a serious responsibility. The baby bunnies in the pet store will get much bigger. They need ample space, a varied diet, daily interaction, and regular veterinary care. Thousands of rabbits are abandoned in the months after Easter, adding to the year-round problem of overpopulation.

If you do feel ready to commit to having one of these wonderful animals in your home, please do some research first and contact your nearest House Rabbit Society chapter about adopting a rabbit who is waiting for a "forever home".
