Are You Actually Ready For That Easter Bunny?

Many rabbits purchased as Easter gifts DIE before their first birthdays. Most of the remaining will be dumped into the woods or given up to shelters. This is extremely depressing considering that well cared for rabbits can live long past Easter (10-12 years to be exact)! Take the quiz and then join the national #NotJust4Easter campaign at http://scanimalrightsteam.wix.com/scarat#!blank/sp0ov" target="_blank">#NotJust4Easter initiative.

    You want that baby bunny? Be ready to love him or her for a very, very long time! Bunny in the picture's name is Stewie. He is the oldest rabbit to have ever lived. When he died in 2013, he was over 17 years old!

  2. 2. Is it a good idea to have children around rabbits?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Of course

    Rabbits are the perfect starter pet to help children learn responsibility.

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Absolutely not.

    Rabbits are very fragile and will be frightened around young children.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Nope!

    Keep in mind of the following: 1. Rabbits are prey animals and rely on trust. Children are unpredictable and this scares them. 2. Rabbits are not meant to teach children responsibility. You are. It is not fair to risk a rabbit's life in order to teach your children a lesson.

    Nope!

  3. 3. What is a suitable habitat for a bunny?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Roaming free indoors or in a large playpen
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Outside in a hutch
    Correct
    Incorrect
    A cage in doors that you would buy at a pet store
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Free roaming is really the best!

    Though, free roaming means a lot of bunny-proofing in your home to save both your stuff and bunny from danger. A good second is to buy a large play pen. Your rabbit should be able to stand up straight, stretch and run in her habitat. In addition, they must be indoors at all times. Besides the obvious weather problems, there are way too many predators outside who can snatch them. Also, keeping them indoors makes bonding with your bunny way easier.

  4. 4. What is the base component of a rabbit's diet?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Lots of carrots. Bugs Bunny looked really happy.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Grass/Hay
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Rabbit food from a store
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Grass hays are very crucial!

    Rabbits should have hay available to them at all times. In addition, they need fresh greens and a tiny amount of pellets daily. Despite Bugs Bunny's idea of a proper diet, carrots are actually considered a treat and should be given very sparingly.

  5. 5. How big can rabbits get?

    A rabbit's breed is usually what determines its size but can you guess just how big that they can get?

    Correct

    7 lbs

    Incorrect
    10 lbs
    Correct
    Incorrect
    55 lbs.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The largest rabbit is Ralph and he weighs 55 lbs!

    Okay, most rabbits do not reach Ralph's level. That comes from extreme breeding. However, there are very large rabbits out there. Big rabbit breeds include Flemish Giants and French Lops, among others.

  6. 6. Are rabbits usually cuddly animals?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Nope. Rabbits like their space.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Of course they are! Look at that face!
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Unfortunately, this is true.

    Yes, they are so cute. You want to pick them up and kiss them. With sadness, I have to tell you that most bunnies do not like this kind of affection. On the bright side, when they trust you, they do welcome affection while their feet stay on the floor.

    Unfortunately, this is true.

    NEVER, EVER let your rabbit loose.

    This is a death sentence! Domestic rabbits do not have the skill set to survive like wild rabbits. Please call a shelter or a rescue!

  8. 8. True or False: Rabbits are low maintenance animals and require very little veterinary care.

    Oh, yeah. Rabbits need lots of veterinary attention!

    To begin, rabbits really need to be seen by a rabbit-specialized vet. Not just any vet who claims they know what they are doing, actually do. To add, rabbits need to visit the vet periodically for routine checkups. Keep in mind that rabbits are also very, very susceptible to disease and illness. Note: I cannot confirm or deny that the vet from the photo is qualified for rabbit care. This would involve more research.

    Oh, yeah. Rabbits need lots of veterinary attention!

    YES! Rabbits NEED to be altered.

    There's no love like bunny love.

    Rabbits do need another to love. Make sure that the bunnies are spayed/neutered BEFORE meeting. This will ensure a true bond that will not be broken from hormonal strikes. Will also keep the babies away! Make sure to let your bunny pick who he or she wants. All bunnies have different personalities. Would you want to be stuck with someone you didn't like forever? Not to mention, bunny fights are terrifying! They literally will fight to the death.

    RESCUES NEED YOU!

    Rabbit rescues are a real thing. What is even more real is that we are bombarded with rabbits and are mostly all jam packed full. Houses are filled with pens. Money is spent out of pockets. Rescue is hard but worth it! Rescues rely on adoptions and foster homes to be able to take more in. Figure out how you can help! Do a web search for your closest rabbit rescue!
