The Fairfax County Animal Shelter hopes to educate prospective adoptees this month. And they've sweetened the deal with their Chocolate Bunny Adoption event.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, April 5, 12 and 19, you can learn about rabbit care and enrichment, and also cuddle with some of the shelter's available bunnies.
Visitors will receive a chocolate bunny, a packet of information on rabbit care and a certificate for half off the adoption fee on a rabbit or guinea pig through April 19.
"There is a serious message behind this fun and festive adoption event," the shelter writes on its website. "Sometimes, families choose to bring home live bunnies as an Easter surprise, without realizing that rabbits are intelligent, interactive pets that need daily care, socialization and exercise."
The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is located at 4500 West Ox Road.
