|WRL+AD - August 24th
In 2007, 24 carrot lane (makers of the Bunny's Magic Dream Cottage) created Worldwide Rabbit Love + Appreciation Day. A number of rabbit websites at the time supported the day. Unfortunately in 2009 the site seems to have gone dark and Worldwide Rabbit Love + Appreciation Day came to an end. In 2015 it was restarted by RRI.
"In 2007 we proclaimed the first annual Worldwide Rabbit Love + Appreciation Day, to be observed and celebrated on August 24th each year, meant to give rabbit parents and advocates a day to raise awareness on rabbit issues, and a day to celebrate rabbits."
"So, what is this official proclamation all about? It is about raising awareness to make the world a better place for companion rabbits. It is about encouraging rabbit parents everywhere to do their small part to spread the word about responsible rabbit guardianship, to let others know how intelligent and affectionate rabbits can be, and to remind everyone that they CAN make a difference for the better, which will ultimately help to reduce the number of rabbits surrendered to shelters."
"After hearing so many stories with similar themes, which many times end sadly with the rabbit either being given away, brought to an animal shelter, or let loose in parks or woods, we've come to realize how very important - imperative, really - it is for us to do our part to dispel myths and misconceptions, and to educate people as much as possible, in a genuine and friendly way, about responsible rabbit guardianship, so on August 24th 2007 we officially proclaimed the first annual Worldwide Rabbit Love + Appreciation Day."
