Make Mine Chocolate is a campaign to educate and deter folks from purchasing bunnies for Easter. Often those bunnies end up in shelters after a few months or worse, released to fend for themselves.
Rabbits should not be an impulse buy. When properly cared for a domestic rabbit can live over 10 years. That is a commitment.
There are loads of stuffed plush bunnies that can be left alone in a room, do not require food, or veterinary care.
Or stick to purchasing chocolate bunnies.
Bob, the lovebird in the photo was rescued. He was found flying in my garden on a Sunday afternoon in June of 2016. We attempted to catch him with no luck. The next afternoon he returned. I wrote a post about how we were able to capture him.
We were unable to locate his family. So, he has found a forever home with us, two bunnies, and a cockatiel.
Recently, a family member mentioned seeing a flock of lovebirds in a nearby park. We haven’t yet visited the park. Someday we might check it out.
