"Each year, unwanted, former Easter rabbits fill local rabbit rescues and humane societies. The goal of the Make Mine Chocolate! campaign is to break the cycle of acquisition and relinquishment by educating the public about the responsibilities involved in keeping a companion rabbit before a rabbit is brought home."<br><br>
Check out the Make Mine Chocolate Website for more info. I have a wonderful companion bunny, and they are definitely not the "easy" pets that people seem to think they are. They require as much attention as a dog or cat.<br><br><a href="http://www.makeminechocolate.org/" target="_blank">http://www.makeminechocolate.org/</a>

Wow, what a great campaign. I've never had a bunny, but love to see all the pictures and stories about pet buns here on VB. It's an awful shame that most people think they can just live in the backyard in a hutch with a wire bottom.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I know, it's very sad. People don't realize what intelligent, inquisitive, social animals they are.

Make Mine Chocolate is awesome! I wish the US group was more active. The UK site is updated more frequently, and I think they're more active in promoting rabbit welfare.<br><br><a href="http://www.makeminechocolate.org.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.makeminechocolate.org.uk/</a></div>

I know!!!! Next Saturday I will be protesting a pet store that sells puppy mill puppies. They also sell bunnies and guinea pigs. I'm going to hand out some MMC literature while I'm there.

I have shared this as well. I used to own a rabbit and I loved that little guy! He was more work than my kitty is right now, but I loved him and it was worth it. Fabulous campaign! Thank you for sharing the link as I had never heard of it.

I found out about this around when I got my buns, and have been promoting it ever since! One thing I do is make Craigslist posts about it. Whether or not anyone reads them, I don't know, but it's a good way to try and spread the word. Especially since I see "Bunnies for sale - perfect for this upcoming Easter!" in there a lot around this time.
