  Alabama Cruelty Case: 
Will you take 30 seconds to sign a petition to save rabbits?
This link takes you directly to the place to sign:
https://www.change.org/p/lauderdale-district-attorney-chris-connolly-please-take-back-all-of-the-abused-rabbits-
who-have-been-irresponsibly-given-to-breeders-and-only-place-them-with-reputable-rabbit-rescue-groups



Please share it with your Facebook and Twitter friends so they can sign too! Explanation: The petition urges a district attorney in Alabama to give 161 tame rabbits - just like the rabbits we have as our companions - to rescue groups.  The rabbits were removed from a terrible situation where they were suffering, but the district attorney placed them in an equally terrible situation by sending them to a breeder where they will live their lives in tiny breeding cages or face death.   Oddly, the district attorney placed the cats, dogs and other animals in shelters and rescues.  It was only the poor rabbits that were sent to a breeder.

The House Rabbit Society is outraged and is begging us to help right this terrible wrong.  Margo DeMello, president of the national House Rabbit Society, wrote:

"Our Alabama educator is pleading with District Attorney Chris Connolly to release the rabbits to the local shelter so the rabbits can go to rescue groups. We want to save these rabbits - not see a breeder profit from them!  It does not seem right for a breeder to profit from animals seized in a cruelty case."

Seriously thinking about getting a bunny at Easter? Here's the best way to do it:

1) Start finding out the facts ahead of time.  Visit our shelter.  Contact us to do an orientation (even long time bunny owners learn something new) at 314-995-1457 or  mo_hrs@hotmail.com

2) If you decide a bunny would be a great pet for you and you have a family with children, then give the kids a stuffed bunny toy for Easter along with a note that you'll be going to visit some real bunnies right AFTER Easter.  







Your whole family can enjoy Easter and look forward to a new family member afterward without the chaos of trying to care for a new pet the same day as the coming and going, family visits, etc.  and it's a WHOLE LOT LESS STRESSFUL FOR THE BUNNY TOO.

3) Be sure you're prepared to make a 10 or 12  year  commitment because we absolutely guarantee the children will quickly lose interest no matter what their ages.  Teenagers will also shortly be headed off to college.   It has to be mom and dad who really want the bunny. 

4) Read our info on things to think about BEFORE getting a bunny.  They are not low cost, not low maintenance, they require specialized care, etc.
