Valentines, Year of the Rabbit, Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month

"I looked all through this bag, no chocolate covered carrots for me?"

While you may be tempted to celebrate their special month or year by getting a rabbit just remember that a bunny is a commitment, not a live toy to be discarded when you lose interest. Spice, Zoe, and Gwendolyn would like to take this time to remind you not to purchase a rabbit on impulse. Bringing a bunny into your home is a big decision. Your bunny should be spayed or neutered, live indoors with you and your family, can be trained to use a litter box, needs love, exercise, daily interaction and a healthy diet. The worst life a rabbit can have is one where he or she is ignored.

Heartland bunnies are spayed and neutered, live indoors, are under no circumstances allowed to breed and we do not adopt baby rabbits, EVER.

We wish that your Year of the Rabbit be prosperous and if you do decide to adopt a bunny, do your research and please adopt from a rescue. Hope you have a very Hoppy and love filled Valentines Day.
