Adopt a Rescue Rabbit month

July is Adopt a Rescue Rabbit Month! Many people buy bunnies as Easter gifts and then realise they don't know how to look after them properly, get bored of them and abandon them or give them to rescue centres in the summer. If you do want a bunny as a pet (and they make wonderful, wonderful pets) then research carefully how to look after them and adopt one from your nearest animal rescue centre. In Edinburgh that would be the SSPCA rehoming centre in Balerno or the East Lothian Bunny Haven.

To mark Adopt a Rescue Rabbit month I've added two rabbit themed items to the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, both featuring the haiga in the photo below, you can see them here and here.

I've also put together a rabbit themed Etsy Treasury (which showcases some of my favourite rabbit items from around Etsy and features items from Annette of The Leverets Nest, Diana of Qi Papers and  Donna of Lavender Rabbits.)
