Local MMC Events - Columbus House Rabbit Society

The Easter season is upon us, which means our "Make Mine Chocolate!" campaign is in full swing. We've got a couple of events planned this year to get the word out that rabbits should not be given as Easter gifts.

 

"Make Mine Chocolate!" Rabbit Day Information Fair and Bake Sale

This event will take place at Capital Area Humane Society on April 2, 2011, 12:00pm to 5:00pm. We will feature the adoptable rabbits at CAHS and CHRS/CAHS volunteers will be on hand to answer all your questions about living with a house rabbit. The event will include raffle prizes and a bake sale. CHRS member Linda Davies has again offered to provide tables full of delicious baked treats prepared by her girls' service group Job's Daughters. Proceeds from this event will go to support the rabbits at the Capital Area Humane Society.

Wilson's Garden Center in Newark, OH on April 17, 2011 - 1:00-4:00pm

Wilson's Garden Center in Newark, Ohio holds an annual Easter event. This year, they are having the Easter Bunny pass out candy to children and have invited us to have an information table and feature an adoptable bunny. They understand we will not be adopting out any rabbits that day and that our focus would be educating people on proper rabbit care. The event takes place indoors with space for our table and a 4x4 pen.

Needed:
Volunteers to attend the event from set up through tear down, including transportation of the foster bun.

Please RSVP to Terri (sauceypaw@gmail.com or terri@columbusrabbit.org) and let me know if you are interested in helping out.
