Add a bunny to the fam­ily

Central Leader - - NEWS -

SPCA Auck­land is over­flow­ing with cud­dly rab­bits – just in time for the school hol­i­days.

‘‘School hol­i­days are the per­fect time to adopt a beau­ti­ful, fluffy bunny be­cause the breath­ing space gives you and the kids time to get them set­tled be­fore school starts again,’’ SPCA Auck­land chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris­tine Kalin says.

‘‘We’ve got more than 40 rab­bits on our hands right now – any more and we’ll be over­run, so we’re ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic, if you’re pre­pared to adopt a rab­bit, now is the time to do it,’’ she says.

‘‘Rab­bits make won- der­ful pets they’re af­fec­tion­ate, cud­dly, in­tel­li­gent, ath­letic and full of per­son­al­ity – but they need lots of care and at­ten­tion to thrive.

‘‘That’s why we’re sug­gest­ing peo­ple adopt them dur­ing the hol­i­days so ev­ery­one can get used to the daily rou­tine of feed­ing, groom­ing and ex­er­cis­ing their rab­bits be­fore re­turn­ing to school or work.’’
