Add a bunny to the family
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.’’
