Make Mine Chocolate

Easter Amnesty - don't buy rabbits as gifts - how about a sweet treat instead?

This Easter, please buy chocolate or cuddly toy bunnies rather than live rabbits.

We support the “Make Mine Chocolate” Easter Amnesty campaign to stop the impulse buying of rabbits for children over the Easter period.

They may be cute and fluffy, but in the months following Easter, animal rescue societies are flooded with ‘Easter’ rabbits, as their owners often quickly tire of them. 60% of rabbits entering rescue do so within the first year of ownership. Of these, 40% have been owned for less than 6 months. For further details, please visit

Rabbits are not just for Easter.
