Montreal, April 14, 2014 – From April 18 to April 20, The Montreal SPCA, will be hosting an event to help abandoned rabbits find a foster family or even a forever home. According to a press release, the Montreal SPCA receives over 260 rabbits a year. Many of these rabbits are abandoned during the Easter Holiday.
The Montreal SPCA is asking for a $100 deposit. The money will be refunded when the bunny is returned to the shelter after the 3 months. People will be able to take the rabbit of their choice and give him/her a safe home. The Montreal SPCA will provide rabbit food, a furnished cage and information on how to take care of the rabbit. The possibility of adopting the rabbit is also available.
While planned pet adoptions are great, it’s not always recommended to give pets as “surprise” gifts to friends or family members. Adopting a pet is a big decision and represents a long-term commitment. A rabbit, like any domestic pet, is not a toy; an animal is a living being who has physiological and psychological needs that must be catered to. Many parents believe that Easter is an ideal time to please their children by giving them a rabbit. Or that an “Easter pet” will allow their children to become more responsible. Often the responsibility is too much for a young child, or even some teenagers, and eventually the parents find themselves having to take care of the pet themselves. The decision to adopt an animal affects all family members, so we recommend families to take the time to discuss it together beforehand. – Montreal SPCA
