This is a crosspost with permission to crosspost: LOOKING FOR A SWEET EASTER TREAT? THE BEST BUNNIES ARE CHOCOLATE ONES! It's that time of year again, and the Easter bunny is on his way into many homes in America--courtesy of well-meaning parents who think they're buying a low-maintenance starter pet for the family. Unfortunately, young children and bunnies aren't at all a good match--and when the novelty wears off, many of these Easter rabbits will wind up at shelters. If your family's set on getting a rabbit, give a chocolate bunny or a stuffed toy for Easter and, if they're really serious, a book on rabbit care. If they're still begging you for a bun after the holiday has passed, go to your local shelter or rescue group and find out how to adopt the rabbit of your dreams. The staffers there will be able to give you all the good advice and information you need to be a great bunny parent. For info on rabbit rescue groups, check out http://www.petfinder.com, and head to http://www.rabbit.org for the complete scoop on bunny care. You can also help spread the word that rabbits are not disposable pets by wearing the Columbus House Rabbit Society's special "Make Mine Chocolate!" bunny pin. Proceeds from the sales of the pin will help fund the House Rabbit Society's adoption and education programs. To order the pin, please visit HRS online.
