Two RabbitsThe House Rabbit Society and Petfinder.com have teamed up to designate February as Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month!

According to Director of the Richmond House Rabbit Society Mary Cotter, “Promoting adoption and educating potential adopters early in the year helps to prevent the impulse purchase of bunnies a month or two later at Easter time. This, in turn, will reduce the number of rabbits relinquished to shelters.”

So, if you’re thinking about bringing a new pet into your home, you can read all about rabbit care and behavior at the My House Rabbit website, and you can read our article on the Benefits of Adopting a Rabbit.

We also have a good list of rabbit rescues and shelters on our Rabbit Resource Page.

Cheryl Rosenthal of the Oshkosh Area Humane Society (OAHS) writes about the many rabbits abandoned outside. Many people, laden with misconceptions about rabbits, let their unwanted bunny loose, assuming they will be able to fend for themselves. Unfortunately, domestic rabbits lack the necessary survival skills in the wild. Rosenthal writes, “Unless they are rescued by a Good Samaritan and brought to the animal shelter many of these submissive animals suffer miserably and die.”
