Easter is upon us. If you’re thinking of giving a furry bunny as a gift, think again. Rabbits will become part of your family, and they need love and care.
Keep this in mind: each year, unwanted, former Easter rabbits fill local rabbit rescues and humane societies. The goal of the “Make Mine Chocolate!™” www.MakeMineChocolate.org campaign is to break the cycle of acquisition and relinquishment by educating the public about the responsibilities involved in keeping a pet rabbit before a rabbit is brought home. If you are considering adopting a rabbit this Spring, first check out the questionnaire at www.makeminechocolate.org/learning.php.
