Do you buy “Easter bunnies”?
Does your church promote using live animals as trinkets?
Learn the horrible truth
Thousands of bunnies are sold around Easter time as trinkets, with no concern for a lifetime of care. Easter is a celebration of resurrection and new life, renewal and forgiveness...not abuse and death.
Small “Easter” bunnies grow into rabbits who require as much daily care as dogs. They are ground-loving animals who often get frightened when they are held, and may bite and scratch. The exuberance of even the most gentle toddler can be stressful for a scared bunny. A child’s need to hold and cuddle is better served by a stuffed toy rabbit.
Rabbits can live to be ten years or older. They must have a specialized diet and when sick or injured should be cared for by a veterinarian trained in rabbit care.
They are companion animals who need to live inside like dogs and cats, not outside in wire cages, alone and bored. Rabbit proofing a home is more complicated than making a home safe for toddlers.
Every year after Easter many thousands of rabbits are abandoned to shelters or released outdoors (a sure death sentence for a domestic rabbit) and vets are always deluged with sick and dying bunnies.
To sell them as Easter trinkets perpetuates the ungodly myth that they are industrialized products to be used and trashed. Let’s teach our children compassion!
Do you want to end this pain and suffering?
Treat ALL God’s creatures with compassion and
dignity...ANIMALS ARE NOT TRINKETS

Help us end cruelty in places where people worship!
Throughout the ages, human beings have accepted killing, violence and violent behavior as just being a part of life. And organized religions have perpetuated and endorsed this kind of thinking, burying their collective head in the sand.
Churches talk about peace and love and compassion while we take pleasure in hunting animals, bull fights and cock fights, horse racing and fishing. In places of worship, people wear clothing made from the furs and skins of tortured animals.
And most importantly, our diets are based on violence toward and the deaths of billions of animals. And these kinds of meals are supported, endorsed and promoted by most religions.
We are urging people of faith to include all of God’s creatures in all programs, activities, sermons, events and fundraisers.
