Easter Bunny

Only at Easter are eggs made of chocolate and delivered by a bunny

Surprising the kids with an adorable fluffy baby bunny on Easter morning may seem like a great idea. But a couple of months down the line, once the novelty has worn off and the reality of looking after the animal kicks in, many of these unfortunate rabbits end up at our SPCA ... needing shelter, care and food.

Please also spare a thought for the hens that provide our ‘real’ eggs all through the year.

Most spend their whole lives in tiny cages – unable to stand, stretch their wings or scratch in the soil. As if that’s not bad enough, once their laying days are over (a few months later), they are sold off cheaply for the pot.

Manhandled roughly like a piece of live meat ... subjected to unspeakable terror or horrific injury ... the truth is that farm animals are seldom treated with respect or compassion.

It’s up to those of us who care for all animals to ‘speak up’ for them.

And as always, we depend on your caring support to help us investigate cases of cruelty and neglect, rescue farm animals from filthy or cruel conditions, and shelter, feed and care for them until suitable new homes can be found.

So this Easter, instead of buying someone a chocolate egg that’ll be quickly gobbled up and forgotten, why not make a donation to the SPCA in their honour to help protect real hens, rabbits and other farm animals?
Then send a special SPCA Easter card to let them know about your gift ... and show them what an eggs-ceptionally caring person you are.

Thank you – and Happy Easter!

If you see these animals being used in displays or Easter parades, please let us know so we can investigate and remove animals in distress if necessary.

Tempting as it may be to share Easter eggs with pets, do remember that chocolate is harmful – if not toxic – to dogs. Rather get your dog a rawhide chew or other pet friendly treat.
Finally, if you are going away for the long weekend, please make sure you arrange adequate and responsible care for your pets.
