Bunnies sure are cute, but until youve had your phone cords, woodwork, and books chewed up by the loving lagomorphs, you really have no idea what it takes to be a slave to a house rabbit. Although they make wonderful companions for those with the time and patience to train a rambunctious bun, the House Rabbit Society wants the public to know a bunny is not a disposable pet it is a ten year (at least) commitment. Stick to chocolate rabbits (www.makeminechocolate.org) and Marshmallow Peeps for filling Easter baskets. And if you really want a furry friend, check out the dogs and cats at the Fairy Tails Spring Adopt a Pet Day.
Im very overwhelmed, says Donna Halpern of Fairy Tails. April 1 is the kickoff of kitten season. In addition to the local animals in need of homes are three Hurricane Katrina survivors from New Orleans: Jay Jay, a shepherd mix; Jalopy, a golden retriever mix; and Elvis, a tuxedo cat. Speaking of hurricanes, Fairy Tails will also be collecting supplies of food, linens, and cat litter to prepare for the coming season. Find a new buddy or make a donation today from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Petco. Call 305-596-9694, or visit www.fairytailsadoptions.org.
