Make Mine Chocolate

Bunnies aren't for everyone. Just ask the thousands of bunnies who are relinquished to shelters or -- worse -- to the wild to fend for themselves when their cuteness wears off shortly after Easter.

There is a campaign called Make Mine Chocolate, whose mission (from their Web site) is:

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.

Think long and hard before you buy your little boy or girl a bunny for Easter. It's a time committment of 8-12 years, not a few weeks. Every true house rabbit lover will thank you for putting in the extra time to research and decide if a bunny is right for your home.
