Support Rabbit Rescue Organizations

Two adoptable rabbits

Crystal & Christin, two adult female rabbits available for adoption from Alabama Ears.

Now that the excitement of Easter has started to subside, shelters and rabbit rescues will begin to be inundated with surrendered bunnies.  Now is the time to show your support for rabbit welfare and rescue!

Here are a few options:

  • Donate to the national House Rabbit Society (which funds national education efforts and Emergency Rescue Grants)
  • Donate to local rabbit rescues, including House Rabbit Society chapters
  • If you are an experienced house rabbit owner and have the space, sign up with a local rescue to foster bunnies in your home
  • Volunteer with your local rescue
  • Donate supplies (hay, litter, puppy-pens, etc.) to your local rescue

You may also want to put focus on Alabama-based shelters (e.g. Alabama EARS or Huntsville Friends of Rabbits), who may have to accommodate rabbits displaced from the tornadoes in addition to the annual post-Easter influx.

Sketchy Easter Bunnies

The Cheezburger Network has launched a new seasonal site devoted to photos of um… interesting… Easter bunnies.  You know what I’m talking about- we’ve all seen them at the local malls. Even though actual bunnies are quite cute, there are (and have always been) a ton of creepy/scary-looking Easter bunny costumes out there…

Bunny in Need of Help

The House Rabbit Society of Missouri has recently taken into their care a rabbit named Easter. He was found by a man in his backyard and was seriously injured. Unfortunately Easter has needed major surgery, including the amputation of a back leg. According to the HRS of Missouri, Easter has a strong will to survive and sweet personality.

The surgery is quite expensive and the HRS of Missouri is seeking donations to help defray the cost.

You can read the whole story and donate at their website: www.hrsmostl.org.
