Rabbits are one of the predominant images associated with Easter, and many people think about presenting their young child with an Easter bunny of their very own. Yet many don’t stop to think about the reality of a pet rabbit, and, over the next few weeks, as the excitement and novelty of the new pet begins to fade, the rabbit gets less of the attention, care, and love that it needs.
A few basic facts about rabbits:
1. They are not a short term pet. – Rabbits can live up to 10 years (We see rabbits that are 13 or 14 years old).; this is a major commitment in time, money, and energy, and should not be made on a spur of the moment idea.
We are holding our annual rabbit amnesty for Easter and will not be selling any rabbits from March 25th through April 7th!
Rabbits make wonderful companions and getting one should be an informed decision. Have any questions? Stop by and talk to our well trained staff and check out our caresheets on rabbit care and feeding.
