Rabbit Education Day
Saturday March 12th, 2005 at Petco in Portsmouth
Did you know that rabbits are the third most surrendered pets at animal shelters?
Cocheco Valley Humane Society has rabbits awaiting adoption into loving indoor homes. Our long-eared friends thrive with daily exercise, a diet of fresh hay, produce, and high-fiber pellets. They are social, loving pets, litter-train easily, and may live as long as a dog or a cat.
Many homeless rabbits began life only a year ago as Easter pets or were "impulse buys" from a pet store. Rabbits may not be the best choice for a child's pet as they become frightened when held. Children enjoy something they can carry and cuddle, making stuffed animals a great alternative.
CVHS asks that you resist that cute little bunny at the pet store. Make adoption your first option and first give some thought to what a rabbit's life would be like in your schedule.
Come to Rabbit Education Day on Saturday March 12th from 10AM-3PM at Petco in Portsmouth. CVHS will be there to help you make an informed decision before adopting. For more information, click on the Easter and Bunnies Don't Mix icon at cvhsonline.org or on rabbit.org or call the shelter at (603) 749-5322. When you adopt a rabbit from CVHS, you not only make a friend for life - you save a life.
