SPCA is sweet for Easter
The SPCA Animal Village in Mangere is getting into the spirit of Easter by giving away chocolate eggs with every bunny adopted this weekend.
Rabbits make good pets, says SPCA operations manager Tracy Dunn.
“They are a great compan- ion for all age groups and are fairly easy to train.”
And they’re very intelligent, she says.
“They can be litter traytrained and can make good indoor pets.”
There’s a type of bunny to suit everyone and they come in all shapes, sizes and colours. But, like any pet, bunnies do require care.
“They do need time outside and time out of their hutch and it’s important that they have the correct diet and exercise,” Ms Dunn says.
“And long-haired rabbits such as angora rabbits require regular grooming.”
SPCA staff will be on hand to answer questions and offer rabbit advice. The Easter promotion is also highlight- ing the fact that the SPCA doesn’t just have cats, dogs and bunnies for adoption.
The animal village also gets guinea pigs, rats and mice, and rural animals like chickens, roosters, goats, sheep and pigs.
The promotion runs over Easter weekend, except on Good Friday, when the animal village is closed.
