In the months after Easter, rescues are inundated with unwanted rabbits. Sadly, people buy rabbits for Easter and when the novelty wears off the rabbit must find a new home.
A rabbit is a 10 year investment. Yes, they can be cuddly and sweet, but they need daily attention and work. If you’re unsure, get a toy rabbit or a chocolate rabbit this Easter.
Nice PSA! It makes me sad to think about all the abandoned bunnies every Easter :[
My mom once told me that when she was a child, it was common to get chicks and ducklings, too. Wonder whatever happened to them when they grew up, if they even made it that far!
Maybe those pets all made it to the dinner table? Shudder at the thought.
Not only that, but they’d be dyed different colors, too! I also wonder how many became dinner
I have never seen dyed animals at a pet store. That is 50 shades of wrong.
I can not agree witb you more! People need to understand that any pets is a long term committment
Aw man that’s sad. On another note..those panda toys! O.o cute.
The Koala surprised me at work with the panda toys as a Valentines present. How embarrassingly awesome.
Awww this makes me sad. Almost as bad as people wanting to harm black cats on Halloween.
I hadn’t heard of that before. That’s really messed up.
Ohhh, poor abandoned rabbits. I love the idea of one hopping around my apartment, but not sure who’d be less impressed with it – the landlord or the bunny itself…
There are some apartment bunnies out there. If you get a bunny that enjoys a leash, you can take them out to the park. Tofu hates a leash, but our old bunny Sharmi didn’t mind either way.
I will have to start working on my Easter message. I have two stars lined up for the role. They have been bugging me for work… and blueberries.
Blueberry addicts! Tofu has tried blueberries this summer. He likes them a lot but I don’t give him much. Just 1. Is that mean?
Well Flatpac has lost weight with her new boo and all of the adventures they have been going on but I think 1 is acceptable. Then it is seen as a special food. Like bunny caviar 😛 I think I’m a crazy bunny lady because I buy them all of the expensive stuff and I don’t actually eat any. Priorities! Haha.
I don’t buy much expensive stuff, but I am growing vegetables for Tofu. I guess home grown vegetables is just as crazy bunny lady as gourmet store bought 😀
Well done and well-expressed. I will never understand these people who buy rabbits for Easter without any thought that it is an animal not a toy. Having a pet is a commitment. Just because it looks cute and cuddly doesn’t mean that it isn’t a responsibility!
I’ve noticed that there people offering kittens for foster only (not sale). I wonder if it’s because they are reluctant to sell kittens because someone who buys a kittens is less likely to keep it once it reaches adulthood. But someone who buys an adult cat is more likely to keep it?
That doesn’t make a lot of sense! But I’m not a cat person…
