Every spring when Easter rolls around, many families decide to surprise their children with more than some chocolate and trinkets in their Easter baskets. A lot of children will wake up on Easter morning to find their very own, real life Easter bunny as a gift. Each year a lot of rabbits are purchased as Easter gifts and sadly, those rabbits are soon forgotten. It is estimated that 80 percent of bunnies purchased on Easter are abandoned. This is incredibly sad. Bringing a bunny into your family isn’t something to take lightly. Bunnies are not just fun for Easter. They require a big commitment and a lot of care.
