A sampling of the chocolates for sale at the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary Easter Chocolate Fundraiser.
The Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary, located in Whittaker, Michigan, is having an Easter chocolate fundraiser.
These adorable and delicious chocolates not only raise money for the shelter, they also remind people that real bunnies are not appropriate Easter gifts. The chocolates are made by a local shop called Chocolate Drop Shop in Westland, Michigan.
For more information, see the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary site or the fundraiser Facebook page.

Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary, located at an old farm in Whittaker, MI, is the largest rabbit rescue in the US. Currently, their rabbit population has reached 550, with 75 adoptable bunnies and 475 feral rabbits. The rabbits up for adoption live in pens while the feral rabbits live outdoors in two large enclosures. There, the rabbits have dug an elaborate warren, but come out to play in the snow and run around.
