Potential Holiday Hazards

Holidayby http://www.peteducation.com/

The holidays are a happy time of the year, but present special challenges to owners of small pets. Keep your pets safe during the holidays. If your pet spends time out of the cage, have a safe exercise area in which he can play. Some rabbit owners actually put an exercise pen around the Christmas tree, to keep their bunny safe.

• Prevent exposure to electrical wires. Conceal them or use pet-proof covers.

• Prevent access to holiday plants. Never allow your pet unsupervised access to poinsettia, holly (leaves and berries), mistletoe, or other plants commonly used to decorate during the holidays.

• A decorated tree poses many hazards. Tinsel, garland, flocking, and artificial snow can be dangerous. The tree may also be coated with potentially harmful fire retardant, fertilizer, or insecticide. Low hanging lights and ornaments can be especially attracting.

• Many of the foods we set out during the holidays can be toxic to pets, including chocolate (bakers, semi sweet, milk, dark), sugary cookies, salty snacks, and other favorites left out for nibbling and, of course, alcoholic drinks.

• Perfumes, potpourri, adhesives, glues, aerosol sprays, and cleaning products can all be toxic.

• Tape, ribbons, and the inks and metals used in some gift-wraps could cause problems if eaten.

Read the full list of potential hazards and how to prevent accidents.

Foster Homes

The foster program is an essential part of our mission. Without our dedicated foster families we wouldn't be able to help the many rabbits we do each year. Providing a foster home for one of these rabbits can be a very rewarding experience and literally saves a life!

MCRS will supply all the equipment you will need - cage, litterbox, litter, food & hay. MCRS also covers any medical expenses for foster rabbits. Your only out-of-pocket expense is for the fresh greens & veggies you feed your foster rabbit - and even that is a tax-deductible donation!

All you need is:
•a space in your home for a cage & some play space for the rabbit.
•an hour or so daily to provide socialization and care.
•a willingness to learn about the proper care of rabbits.
•convenient access to email is strongly preferred.
•ability to transport rabbit to periodic adoption events is preferred, but not required.

Please contact MCRS at info@mncompanionrabbit.org if you are able to help. Thank you!

Volunteers are not just important to MCRS, they literally are MCRS. Volunteers do everything that needs to be done within the organization from picking up the mail to caring for homeless rabbits to keeping financial records to scooping litter boxes.

  supply sales

Did you know that in addition to hay and pellets we have a lot of other great items for sale?



Is your rabbit gnawing at everything but what you want them to? A great option would be the Snak Shak. This gives the rabbit something to chew on to help with their teeth and something that they can destroy. Many of our adoption volunteers recommend these to families when they are getting their new family member!

To purchase supplies from our South Saint Paul location, check our events calendar for the next supply sale!
