PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)

With Lent and Easter coming up, we annually support the effort to Make Mine Chocolate!, encouraging everyone to give chocolate Easter bunnies rather than live rabbits who often end up in shelters. That said, February is Adopt-a-Rescued Rabbit Month and we also support *responsible* rabbit adoption through organizations like House Rabbit Society and Friends of Rabbits.

Happy Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month! 🐰
