Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit Month: “Bunny Care Basics” offered in February 

Tractor Supply to host free seminar by ESRREC at Chestertown location


February 1, 2017

Contact: Cora Dickson,

This February, Eastern Shore Rabbit Rescue and Education Center, Inc. (ESRREC) hopes you will fall in love with a rescue rabbit.  To help potential adopters learn more about pet rabbits, ESRREC will hold a “Bunny Care Basics” seminar at the Tractor Supply in Chestertown on Saturday February 11 at 1pm.

The seminar provides an overview of fundamental needs such as food, litter box training, and recommended toys and treats.  One of the key features is a demonstration of how to safely pick up a rabbit.

ESRREC is a Rock Hall-based charity dedicated to finding homes for abandoned pet rabbits. Since its shelter on Main Street in Rock Hall started operations in April 2015, ESRREC (which has 501(c)(3) status) has taken in 53 abandoned pet rabbits, out of which 35 have been adopted. ESRREC has also arranged for 42 spay/neuter operations before adoption. Approximately one-third of the rabbits were transferred from the region’s animal shelters, while others were strays or surrendered directly by the owners.
