Get stuffed for Easter



The Associated Press

The Humane Society is asking people to refrain from purchasing live rabbits, ducklings and chicks as Easter gifts this holiday season.

Cute little animals mature quickly into adults and need daily care for the rest of their lives. "People often don't realize the level of financial and time commitment these animals require," said Stephanie Shain, director of companion animal outreach for the Humane Society. Each year after Easter, animal shelters are bombarded with unwanted Easter pets that are given up after the owners have lost interest or are unable to care for the animal. Instead of purchasing a live animal, the Humane Society suggests giving plush toys as gifts for Easter.
