Best Friends' Cwazy Rabbits' Appeal
As you know, with each Easter holiday season comes the sale of defenseless bunny rabbits in pet stores, on street corners, in front of supermarkets and the like. And each year, those of us who do understand the rabbit and its life, urge people to NOT buy little bunny rabbits because often they are neglected after the novelty wears off, abandoned, or fall prey to unsupervised children and pets.
Best Friends Animal Society has conspired with their rabbit charges to begin a new campaign to help abandoned and orphaned rabbits in shelters by offering a wiser alternative to this inhumane Easter practice that commercializes and sells these fragile creatures for profit. If you go to this site, you will see how you and your friends can enjoy the beauty of these and other creatures, give a gift of an "animal" and help the real bunnies at the same time. It's time to put an end to the cycle of animal abuse during what should be a time of celebrating new life, and not contributing to the end or suffering of innocent creatures.
