The Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will be hosting a rabbit care and adoption event on Sunday in East Providence. The event will be held at Rumford Pet Express from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. A number of rabbits that were recently rescued will be available for adoption.
According to the RISPCA, people are increasingly surrendering small animals, particularly rabbits. They want to remind the public that raising these pets is hard work, especially around Easter time when they are often given as gifts without proper consideration.
For those who aren’t quite ready to take on a live animal, small toy stuffed rabbits will also be available “for adoption” for a $10 donation.
