Rabbit Day - Forth Saturday in September

The fourth Saturday of September is International Rabbit special day.
While many people like to raise this cute animal at home, rabbits also suffer from more harsh and cruel treatment from humans. Many rabbits are captured and taken to laboratories for the purpose of using them for experiments of medical and cosmetic products, hunting them for their fur or for edible purposes.
Rabbit Day is designed to raise awareness for this cute animal and remind you to protect and preserve it. So give your rabbit a delicious carrot and when you buy grooming products, note that they have not been tested on animals.
