International Rabbit Day Coming The Month Of Spetember, And The Progress Awarness Has Made Through The Years!!!
With August coming to a close, and September rolling in, with the month of September includes International Rabbit Day! At Lovely Bunny's we will be celebrating all month with special postings, videos, pictures, and just fun ways to reach out to the animal community to spread the amazing pets bunnies truly are. This month International Bunny Day Falls on the 23rd of September, and with that I would like to take a look back over the past five years at how far organizations, activists, and the world in general have paved the way for bunnies to find owners humanely, pre-vetted, and educated prior to a bunny going to their new loving owner. Please be aware that where we were, which was a bunny lover's nightmare to how far we have come is shockingly comforting! Click Read More Below For More Information.
Spanning back over the half of the decade it used to actually be seen as a positive that Pennsylvania was the largest producer of Rabbits in a year with 298 Farms Producing 112,000 rabbits in a 365 day span. To do this humanely would require a set up that would cut margins so much for these farms that they essentially were all mills expect for a select few. These bunnies were used for slaughter, Lab Testing, and sold to pet stores in bulk. Reading through, I could not believe the author was spinning this article in such a positive outlook. This article should have been nothing but a complete red flag as to if this was not halted the abuse and lack of care would continue to expand because reducing space and having 18,000 bunnies die is more cost efficient than adding space and having 112,000 bunnies survive. Fortunately, regulations on a State and National level has realized the issue and is taking action. One of the main factors I noticed that has resulted in over populated shelters is people purchase bunnies for the cheapest amount available. When this happens you are always subject to a mixed bag of personalities and then since the bunny was not as much of a financial commitment, they are very apt to give the bunny away when they get bored with them. So where do these bunnies end up? Over populated shelters. The course we are trending on I do not feel is going to reduce that in the near term, but with a few tweaks there can be a lift on the strain significantly spanning over the next three to five years.
I will site a main example. Currently at Lovely Bunny's because of our track record, returning customer base, referrals, and positive reviews, there has made a significant imbalance in the amount of bunnies we can humanely produce versus the amount of bunnies that our notification list can be fully fulfilled. We can easily take our Rabbitry stack cages on top of cages double the amount of bunnies and have twice the amount in a month or two. That is not was never even a topic of discussion, instead we will invest in our future to hold the rank of the number one breeder in New Jersey, New York and Tri-State area and expand to greater heights. We have committed to the road not traveled and invested in more space, more qualified employees, and not limiting any attention to any adults or babies. So our quality of bunny health stays top notch, our bunny's personalities development does not lose time, and our adults get their exercise and play time still at the same rate to keep them happy and healthy. Our business operates on zero debt, so will this venture will not return the value back for roughly 3 years, but I would rather be the best of the best, than have a vice close on us when regulations come down the pipeline.
So let us at all celebrate the month with cute videos, reviews, and pictures from our current customers to post, along with us making some adorable videos of our own.
*Lastly do not forget we will have a new litter tentatively being posted on the 3rd of September, so reach out to be added to the notification list!
