Giving Back to the Easter Bunnies – Save A Bunny
As shared in my blog this week, Easter has varying symbolic meanings, but it also carries varying feelings for me along with this in terms of rabbits, knowing that Easter is when many people go out and purchase them for their children and that they are seen more as a novelty who, in most cases, are later neglected, forgotten, mistreated and handled, and even euthanized.
See my post Rabbits, Cosmic Eggs, Pagan Goddesses & Transition – Easter Origins & Awareness for more information about rabbit awareness involving Easter and Easter symbolism.

I’ve had several discussions with people recently about rabbits and how to care for them and communicate with them, as I feel they are one of the least understood animal companions. I was happy to hear that a teacher friend of mine was going to incorporate rabbits into her curriculum of animal teaching with her students after our discussion, realizing that it would be of benefit to educate children about these dear ones.
Rabbits’ sensitive natures and need for your tender presence and intuitive care is part of the value you will receive tenfold from them if you learn how to give in these ways to them. Commitment to love them the way they need, not as you want, is a lesson of learning unconditional love and going within more in order to understand their reflections. And when taken seriously and with awareness the magic that awaits you in a friendship with one of these dear loved ones is precious and priceless.
Today, in honor of my beloved Nestor whom I celebrated a 10 year anniversary of our physical connection in this life just two days ago, my precious Joy, whom Nestor brought into my life after her passing and led me to SaveABunny, and all of the beautiful souls in rabbit form, I donated to two rabbits that have been through an enormously courageous ordeal that are residents of SaveABunny now and in need of new homes and care. These two called to my heart and I wanted as my Easter gift to give back to the beings that have given so much to me.
The bunny loves I donated to are 101 South and Heaven Lee. You can read about each of them at the links and you can see all of the bunnies that are in need of donations, fostering and adoption here: SaveABunny Rabbits
If these dear ones call to your heart perhaps you might help with a small donation, fostering, home, or at least help to educate others that rabbits are not objects of amusement, but tender and intelligent beings that deserve our love.
You can give here and even choose a rabbit you’d like to sponsor:
Marcy Schaaf, head ofSaveABunny (a non-profit organization rabbit rescue and nationally recognized adoption, education and foster center) is such an endlessly giving soul to these beautiful beings.
SaveABunny was founded in 1999 following the rescue of a frightened, neglected stray rabbit. Since then, their professional reputation has grown into a nationally recognized adoption, education and foster center. Yet, at heart they are a scrappy, resourceful and volunteer-based group that walk the talk. They are recognized as a leader in rabbit rescue efforts, as well as a model for building effective partnerships with animal shelters and community groups, such as the Girl Scouts.
Return to Natural Harmony:
My hope is that people and animals will one day live in natural harmony once again. This is one of the focuses of my service. It is also a heart calling to help educate and provide support in the co-creative partnership with rabbits we have, as they truly are symbols of our cosmic origins.
