Back in 1940 on this date Bugs Bunny made his debut in an animated film called A Wild Hare.  The plot was the same as most of the cartoons involving Bugs Bunny - Elmer Fudd hunting rabbits, only to have Bugs escape every time. The first thing Bugs Bunny said to Elmer Fudd was this - "What's up, doc?" That phrase became Bug's catchphrase.

Bugs Bunny starred in more than 160 classic Warner Brothers cartoons.  He could dance, he could sing and he was "hare"larious.  His carrot chewing persona probably didn't do much to dispel the myth about rabbits eating carrots.  However, he became the second cartoon character, after Mickey Mouse, to receive his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Happy Birthday Bugs Bunny!

Because Bunnies Breed Like...well, bunnies!

We can't emphasize enough the importance of getting your pets, and especially rabbits, spayed and neutered. Not only does it cut down on overpopulation, it also helps to cut the risks of some cancers, and can certainly help with those pesky behavioral issues.

Add to that the fact that many foster and rescue groups are pushed to the brink of their capabilities all at a time when belt tightening and budget cuts have made it such that many community animal shelters no longer even accept rabbits, and you have a situation where even a few extra bunnies is a big deal with no place to go.

There are currently thousands of loving, adoptable, often spayed and neutered, pet bunnies out there at shelters and rescue organizations just waiting for a good home. Let's not add to that situation when the solution is just so simple.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So this World Spay Day, make sure ALL your pets are spayed and neutered!

Check out the Humane Society of the United States for further information. Also check with your local rabbit rescue or shelter to find local veterinarians specializing in rabbit spays and neuters.

We thank you and the bunnies thank you!
