Good job pet store. That is what’s up.
I worked in a pet store for 5 years, and every Easter our rabbit sales went up exponentially. I can tell you from experience that almost half of the rabbits we sold were brought back in as early as two weeks after they were adopted. Some people let them loose, and some people send them to a shelter. People need to understand this very statement, and truly think about it. A rabbit is a big commitment, and should not be a fad or seen as a compulsory pet.
I cannot like this anymore than once, but I sure as hell hope people will spread this message, because it’s important as hell. I used to hand out care sheet BOOKLETS to everyone looking to adopt, and it prevented many of them from adopting in the end.
please please please don’t just buy a bunny for Easter!!! they are the third most popular pet and deserve to be loved all year round, with lots of care, attention and kisses!!! this is very sad to hear about and i hope nobody here lets a domesticated bunny loose because it won’t survive long without the help of people!!!
