The Work Of The House Rabbit Society

rabbiadoptWe are always talking about sheltered dogs and cats and pet adoption. The House Rabbit Society is a nonprofit international organization who’s main purpose is to rescue abandoned rabbits and find permanent adoptive homes for them.  They want to reduce the number of abandoned bunnies and also want to help the public understand these often misunderstood companion animals .The House Rabbit Society was founded in 1988, and since this time, over 30,000 rabbits have been rescued through their foster homes across the United States. Many of the rabbits at the shelters have run out of time are were scheduled for euthanasia. The House Rabbit Society neuters or spay all incoming rabbits, and obtain any necessary veterinary care.

As a former rabbit owner, I always found the House Rabbit Society to be  the best source for resources pertaining to the health and welfare of our pet rabbits. Their website is Rabbit.org.

The House Rabbit Society can provide resources to new rabbit owners such as habitats, Rabbit food, feeding procedures, cage cleaning etc.

Over the past 20 years, The House Rabbit Society has grown from 300 to more than 8,000 members.

dogthreatenedSometimes there can be a fine line between dog abuse and discipline but not very often. We say that a dog is man’s best friend but dogs don’t have the same thought pattens as humans.  If you apply human characteristics onto a dog for the purposes of causing it pain, that is abuse – it’s clear cut. For instance, you get out your dogs leash and get ready to take him for his walk and notice that he’s peed on the floor. You get a newspaper, roll it up tight and began hitting him with it. That is abuse! You are causing the animal pain and applying human characteristics. Did you know that Pitbulls account for 1 out of every 4 dogs that areabused, which is a rate that has doubled in the past decade? Communities that ban pit bulls or other dog breeds help to condition an attitude of fear and this can lead to an attitude of abuse.  Remember dogs and cats respond to kindness and love. Know the difference between discipline and abuse. A dog loves attention, he love chasing around his dog toys, loves getting treats when doing something right so if you leave your dog alone, for many hours or days, or ignore him when you’re home you might say that is also a form of abuse.
