Easter Campaign 2000

You Don't Have to Buy A Bunny to Help One

Every Easter thousands of bunnies are bought from breeders, pet stores and garden centres. Many are acquired on impulse Ė usually as presents for children Ė and end up abandoned or neglected within a month of purchase. This year the Easter message from rabbit welfare and rescue organisations is that you donít have to buy a rabbit to care for one. Here's how:

Adopt a rescued rabbit
Why buy a rabbit when you can adopt one from a shelter? Rescue centres have bunnies of all ages, colours, shapes and sizes in need of a home. They can provide adopters with care information and ongoing support that is not normally available elsewhere. Some bunnies are already socialised, neutered, vaccinated and litter-trained.

Sponsor a bunny.
If you canít rehome a bunny, you can still help by sponsoring him. The money is used to provide rescued bunnies with food, housing and veterinary care.

For more information about adopting a rescued rabbit or
sponsporing a bunny, please visit the
House Rabbit Society of Australia home page.

Thanks to the Rabbit Charity for the use of this campaign message.

Jesus Was A Vegetarian

Why should Christians be Vegetarians?

Jesus' message is one of love and compassion, yet there is nothing loving or compassionate about factory farms and slaughterhouses, where billions of animals live miserable lives and die violent, bloody deaths. Jesus mandates kindness, mercy, compassion, and love for all God's creation. He would be appalled by the degree of suffering we inflict on animals to indulge our acquired taste for their flesh.

Christians have a choice. When we sit down to eat, we can add to the level of violence, misery, and death in the world, or we can respect His creation with a vegetarian diet.

DID YOU KNOW?

Pigs are the fourth most intelligent species on earth, preceded only by humans, primates, whales and dolphins. Yet, thousands of them are slaughtered each year for their meat. It has been reported that their cries of terror in the slaughterhouse sound very much like those of humans.
