National Bunny/Rabbit Day:
The exact date of International Rabbit Day is unknown because it is always observed on the fourth Saturday or Sunday of September every year. In 2020, it was celebrated on September 26, Saturday. The day highlights how much the bunnies are valuable to their owners, and how they bring smiles and happiness to their faces. This day doesn’t only bring joy and enjoyment for rabbits and their owners, but also it revolves around the welfare of bunnies. It tells and trains the pet raisers on how to love rabbits and how to create a safe and healthy environment to protect them from being endangered. Therefore, the National Rabbit Day proves to be very important for rabbit raisers.
If you are already a rabbit lover, on that specific day, you can reconsider the facilities and services you are providing to your pet. But if you are a newbie in this category, you can adopt a new bunny on this day, create a healthy environment for it, and give it carrots to eat. For pet rabbits really need proper care, time, and a healthy environment. But one thing that should be considered carefully. Not all the rabbits are cute and safe.
In the United States of America, the rabbits are the third most favorite pets after cats and dogs. Although they have no contribution to security and hunting, yet they are loved and liked due to cuteness and beauty. Numerous carnivals and fundraising events are arranged on the rabbit day.
The bunnies are less social than cats and dogs, but with great love and care, you can build a healthy social relationship with them. Therefore, if you use a positive reward-based training system, you can make them respond to your commands. The history of rabbit day is not very famous and known, but the House Rabbit Society has been observing the day for several years and they declare,
“ALL rabbits are valuable as individuals, regardless of breed purity, temperament, state of health, or relationship to humans. The welfare of all rabbits is our primary consideration. In line with our mission, we are against the exploitation of rabbits…Domestic rabbits are companion animals and should be afforded at least the same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as commonly afforded to dogs and cats who live as human companions.”
To conclude, I can say that the National rabbit Day is a prudent step that has been taken for rabbit’s safety and awareness because they are used for product testing and medical experimentation, and they are being hunted. So to give them a healthy, safe, and protected environment, the national day was designed. And if you missed observing the day in 2020, you can enjoy it on September 25, in 2021.
To make the day memorable for you and your pet, ask your friends and family to join you, clean your bunny and its home, reconsider its diet, bring it to an authentic veterinary doctor, decorate it, and take cute selfies with your lovely pet. It will make you and your pet happy, and these steps will make your loved ones aware of the significance of the cutest and the most innocent animal.
