TUCSON – Easter is right around the corner. And many cannot picture the holiday without a floppy-eared mascot.
While it may seem like a cute idea to get the family into the spring festivities, officials at the Tucson Wildlife Center are advising residents to not adopt bunnies for holiday presents. Instead, they would like Tucsonans to get in the spirit by sponsoring a wild rabbit.
According to TWC, bunnies are the third most abandoned pet in animal shelters. With the shelter currently caring for more than two dozen bunnies, they advise residents to help them by sponsoring their rehabilitation.
These bunnies were brought into the shelter after they were orphaned or attacked by pets.
Residents can sponsor the rehab of one bunny a the cost of $30.
