Celebrate International Rabbit Day on September 26, 2015

Rabbits

This year’s International Rabbit Day falls on Saturday, September 26. This special occasion occurs on the fourth Saturday and/or Sunday of every September and serves to celebrate rabbits and advocate for their well-being.

From pet rabbits, to wild rabbits, to laboratory rabbits, and meat rabbits, all of these animals deserve our attention. What actions will you take to improve the lives of these rabbits?

Here are some suggestions:

  • Make sure you are providing a safe, healthy, enriching indoor home for your pet rabbit. Take a look at our Rabbit Care and Rabbit Behavior sections for information about proper diet, indoor housing, bunny proofing, enrichment, and more. Our article, How to Care for a Pet Rabbit, provides a basic overview. Share the article with other rabbit owners!
  • Boycott and/or peacefully protest companies and organizations whose practices exploit rabbits (from product testing, to selling rabbit meat, to fur-farming, to conducting rabbit rodeos/scrambles, etc.).
  • Support cruelty-free companies.  Look for the Leaping Bunny logo on products. You can do a product search here.

For all bunny lovers, regardless of if you own a bunny or not, we will be posting an exclusive International Rabbit Day Gift Guide on September 26. The Gift Guide will list stores from the Etsy Rabbits Team, a group of Etsy shop owners who love and support rabbits and rabbit rescue. Each store will be offering special coupons and promos to celebrate the day!

Workout Bunnies: Rabbits Take Over Yoga Class in Vancouver

The Small Animal Rescue Society of B.C. is offering a different kind of yoga class this fall. Bunny yoga introduces adoptable rescue rabbits into the serene environment while class participants stretch and strengthen. The rabbits are supervised by SARS volunteers to ensure their safety. The event helps bring awareness about rabbits being suitable house pets for city dwellers. Learn more at Vancity Buzz and the SARS Facebook page.

Stretch it out, Coco!

Stretch it out, Coco!

For people who could use a little “cute” in their lives, the event sounds like it would hit the spot. I can say from personal experience working out with house rabbits, it certainly adds excitement to the mix. Coco and Cosette enjoy being active participants in my workout, engaging in the following activities:

  • Chewing the corner of my mat while I’m in the middle of a set
  • Sitting under me when I’m doing push-ups or holding a plank position
  • Digging on my back while I’m trying to stretch
  • Trying to eat the pedal strap as I’m pedaling my stationary bike
Rabbit in between weights.

“Oh, you’re trying to work out? I’ll stand here.”
