ESRREC to Hold Adoption “Meet-and-Greet” in Middletown, DE


September 5, 2016

Contact: Cora Dickson,

Eastern Shore Rabbit Rescue and Education Center, Inc. (ESRREC), a Rock Hall-based organization, will hold an outreach event at Concord Pet Foods & Supplies of Middletown on Saturday, September 10 during the hours 11am – 3pm, with the goal of finding new homes for abandoned pet rabbits.

ESRREC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the only rabbit rescue on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Since the shelter started operations in April 2015, ESRREC has taken in 45 abandoned pet rabbits (including 2 newborns), out of which 29 have been adopted. The rabbits are transferred from the region’s humane societies, picked up as strays, or surrendered directly by the owners.

Rabbits adopted from ESRREC are spayed/neutered, litter box trained, and adjusted to a healthy diet.  During the event, customers can meet several of ESRREC’s adoptable rabbits and learn more about rabbit care.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Concord Pet, which has a wide array of food, hay, toys, and cages for pet rabbits,” said ESRREC President and founder Cora Dickson. “Furthermore, Middletown is a rapidly growing community across the Maryland border, just 45 minutes from Rock Hall. We would like to encourage Middletown residents to visit our shelter if they are interested in adopting a rabbit into their family.”
