Make Mine Chocolate!

"Rabbits are a familiar symbol of the Easter holiday. [...] It is no surprise that children beg their parents for a bunny of their own. [...] Each year, unwanted, former Easter rabbits fill local rabbit rescues and humane societies. The goal of the “Make Mine Chocolate!™” campaign is to break the cycle of acquisition and relinquishment by educating the public about the responsibilities involved in keeping a companion rabbit before a rabbit is brought home. "

...So says the Make Mine Chocolate website. Today is one week before Easter- everyone please help spread the word- a rabbit is not an Easter gift, it's a living creature and a serious family responsibility!

Easter bunnies are not common here. We have that problem with doggies on Christmas times and the bigest problem is that we don't have rescues, shelters or places like those to take care of the unwanted doggies!
Kisses and hugs

As a person who has rescued rabbits... and seen plenty of rabbits waiting for homes at the pound... thanks for this!

We have been involved in rabbit rescue before and know all the heartbreak of unwanted rabbit stories. Thanks for posting this!

Hi Dobby,

I hope no bunnies were bought this Easter that will end up homeless in a few days.

Wags & wiggles,

My mommy had bunnies for a many years. they were even potty trained. apparently they were bigger than me and my sister! But she said that they were a lot of work. they even went to the vet once a year just like us!
