Rabbits: Gentle Hearts, Valiant Spirits

Group Organizer
Phoenix, AZ
Post #: 203

The Fund for Animals' late founder, Cleveland Amory, often said that rabbits were the animals forgotten by God. They are one of the most abused and exploited creatures on earth: they are used in laboratory "research", hunted for sport, raised on factory "farms" for meat and fur, and bought and sold as throwaway pets. It's no wonder Amory was instrumental in supporting the Rabbit Sanctuary, Inc. which, as he said, offered "hope for the hop-less."

Fortunately for rabbits, a wonderful book remembers these forgotten creatures and offers them hope as well. Rabbits: Gentle Hearts, Valiant Spirits by Marie Mead with Nancy LaRoche salutes the people who have rescued domestic rabbits and celebrates the companionship between person and bunny.

The book contains a collection of poignant rabbit stories by rabbit owners… or guardians, as the author prefers to call the human caretakers. Each story offers insight into the mind and nature of the domestic rabbit, a unique, mysterious and often misunderstood animal. Included in the pages of this beautifully designed book are color photographs and charming sketches of the rabbits whose tales are told.

"Rabbits: Gentle Hearts, Valiant Spirits educates, inspires, and charms us. But most importantly, it is a call to action. This important book helps us appreciate the special qualities of rabbits and motivates us to take responsibility, ensuring they are given the respect and care they deserve."
—MARY LOU RANDOUR, PhD, director of education for the Doris Day Animal Foundation and author of Animal Grace

Proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit various rabbit protection organizations, including the Rabbit Sanctuary, Inc., in South Carolina, which has long been supported by The Fund for Animals.
