EASTER IN JUNE AT COTTONTAIL COTTAGE RABBIT RESCUE (Sun. 24 Jun, 2018 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

EASTER IN JUNE AT COTTONTAIL COTTAGE RABBIT RESCUE

Most of us, have heard of Christmas in July, but Easter in June? This is the theme for Cottontail Cottage Rabbit Sanctuary’s upcoming open house, scheduled for Sunday, June 24th. Due to the late snowfall in March, the micro-farm sanctuary in Lamoine, had to postpone their Spring open house. Executive director, Jenny Nichols, says, this may become a new tradition.

“In the past, we’ve tried to downplay the whole Easter bunny craze in an attempt to discourage rash purchases of rabbits as pets. It can be a sad plight for them, as months later, as they grow into adulthood, many are quickly abandoned or surrendered to shelters like ours.”

Nichols goes on to say, that this year, they’ve decided to use Easter as an even greater platform to educate the public about the needs and care for these often, complicated pets. The open house will feature an Easter egg hunt that will begin promptly at 12pm. The Easter bunny will make an appearance, and there will be tours of the facilities, including their new barn filled with the 29 baby bunnies from Las Vegas that were part of a nationwide rescue effort. This will be the first time the barn has been open to the public. There will also be refreshments and bunny face painting. The open house begins at 11am and ends at 3pm. Although this is a free event, it is an important fundraiser for Cottontail Cottage. Tax-deductible donations are greatly appreciated.

Cottontail Cottage is located at 21 Cottontail Lane, just off the Shore Road from the Lamoine Corner side by the grange hall. Parking will be on the right side of the road. For more information, please call (207) 343-0738 or visit them on their website: www.ccrabbitrescue.org.
