“Hop away from buying rabbits for CNY”, says CAP

We totally support this call from the Consumer Association of Penang, urging people not to purchase rabbits as pets on a whim just because the coming Chinese New Year is the year of the rabbit.

Owning a pet is a huge lifelong responsibility and rabbits are definitely not low-maintenance pets too.

So please refrain from buying rabbits as pets just because it is the Year of the Rabbit.

Adopt a pet from the shelter or the street, but only if you are prepared to look after the pet for life, take care of their veterinary needs and provide them love and care on the long term.
