The New Mexico House Rabbit Society, the local chapter of an international rabbit rescue organization, is pleased to announce our next event! The event is a book reading for children that will be held at Bookworks bookstore, 4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW -6 September 2014 at 10:30 a.m.

The New Mexico House Rabbit Society, in collaboration with Bookworks bookstore, will hold a fun and family friendly “Meet the Bunnies!” presentation at Bookworks. The presentation is part of Bookworks’ BOA – Big On Animals program. The BOA’s purpose is to let children know that there is something they can do to help take care of animals. As September is International Rabbit Month this is your child’s perfect opportunity to learn about rabbits, to find out what terrific pets they are, and, best of all, meet some rescued bunnies!

“The Forgotten Rabbit” by Nancy Fursinger is the featured children’s book for this event and is in stock at Bookworks. “The Forgotten Rabbit” is a picture book about a bunny that is given as a gift but is left alone after a while. A young girl adopts the rabbit and its life turns around. The lively presentation will help bring the book to life and will introduce families to some very real, very loveable, rescued rabbits.

For event information contact Connie Griffin – Children’s Book Specialist – at Bookworks at kids@bkwrks.com or 505 344 8139.

Day of Action Focused on Whole Foods

imageRabbit protection groups around the country are planning on coming together to tell Whole Foods Market what rabbit lovers really think about Whole Foods’ decision to start selling rabbit meat in their stores on August 17, 2014.

New Mexico House Rabbit Society will be participating by holding a peaceful leafleting outside of Whole Foods on 2103 Carlisle Blvd. NE in Albuquerque.

Whole Foods Markets in New Mexico do not yet sell rabbit meat. Our job is to ask Whole Foods customers to fill out comment cards and speak to store management to ask them NOT to carry rabbit, and to tell them that they are unhappy with the company’s decision to start carrying rabbit meat in their other regions.

For information about the national campaign, visit House Rabbit Society’s main campaign page.
