You wouldn’t buy a reindeer for your child at Christmas so why would you buy a rabbit for your child at Easter ?
• Rabbits are not “low-maintenance” pets — they need as much care and attention as dogs and cats. • Most children lose interest in a live bunny after only a few weeks. • Rabbits need regular veterinary care by a vet with additional training in exotics. • Rabbits have an average lifespan of 8-14 years. • Rabbits must have an adult as their primary caregiver. • Rabbits are the THIRD MOST frequently surrendered animal at shelters, and the THIRD MOST euthanized. • According to an ASPCA study, rabbits are more expensive to own than cats or guinea pigs — coming just after dogs in expense. This Easter don’t buy or adopt a rabbit on an impulse.
