International Rabbit Day
hey did you know dat today is International Rabbit Day? It's a day dat promotes da protection and care of rabbits both domestic and wild. On International Rabbit Day, rabbit owners think about da many ways dat rabbits bring joy to der lives, and also da many ways in which dey are harmed by hunting, eating, medical experimentation, product testing, fur-farming, and living isolated lives in outdoor hutches. Da House Rabbit Society believes dat domestic rabbits are companion animals and should be afforded at least da same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as commonly afforded to dogs and cats who live as human companions. Many HRS chapters are holding special events to celebrate da day. And remember to hug ur bunny today and everyday!
