With Easter just a few days away, I’m sure thoughts of vegan chocolate eggs, spring chickies, and floofy bunnies are dancing in your head. While you might get a sudden urge to buy a cute “Easter bunny,” it’s NOT a good idea.
Most of these impulse pet store purchases cause bunnies to end up in animal shelters—or, worse yet, to be let loose in the wild—once their holiday novelty wears off, which, unfortunately, usually happens rather quickly.
If you are planning to adopt a bunny, please adopt from your local animal shelter to help end animal homelessness. But remember: It’s a serious, long-term commitment. With the right care, a “house bunny” can live 10 to 13 years, sometimes longer!
