Suffolk County, NY - March 29, 2018 - According to the Suffolk County SPCA, live animals are cuddly, they are adorable, but they should not be given as a present for Easter.
 
Live chicks and bunnies may delight your children but they require a commitment for the special care. A better choice would be a stuffed animal.
 
Most children want a companion that the can hold, carry and cuddle but both bunny rabbits and chicks are fragile. All too often the child loses interest and the animal ends up neglected or abandoned.
 
Please consider the animal before giving a live rabbit or chick as a gift for Easter.
 
Happy Easter From Your Friends at the Suffolk County SPCA.
