A “Hoppy” Ending for a Rescued Rabbit

by

A couple of Zazzle Team members have been working behind the scenes to spread the love of Zazzle beyond the world of the finest quality custom products. Check out the story below from Shelly!

A cute fuzzy bunny, you can’t help but smile when you see one. And it’s SO easy to want one of these furry little critters, especially around Easter. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize the commitment it takes to care for a rabbit. The Georgia House Rabbit Society (GHRS), a non-profit, all-volunteer organization committed to rescuing, fostering, and adopting abandoned domestic rabbits, recognizes this issue. Enter Zazzle, a 1-year-old rabbit, found in a store parking lot with a broken leg and pregnant. Named by a staffer at GHRS, she gave birth to five baby rabbits just days after being rescued – her leg still in a cast!

Thanks to the caring folks at GHRS, she was able to successfully recover from her injury and nurse her babies to full health. Zazzle (the company) discovered Zazzle the bunny on a lark and was instantly in love with her. We wanted to do nothing less than adopt and help support the shelter and their efforts to care for her and the other rescued rabbits. What better way to do that than help them open a Zazzle store? Zazzle’s Creative Team spent some off hours making a store with fun products featuring actual rabbits from GHRS. The money raised from the sales will go directly to the shelter, so they can continue caring for their rabbits and increasing public awareness. So help out the good folks at GHRS and get a cool Zazzle product at the same time – you’ll get a warm, fuzzy-bunny feeling inside!

    Thanks to our zazzle store, we have raised about $800 for the bunnies! That pays for many spays and neuters! We are going to be making more products now that we see how fantastic a Zazzle store can be. Thank you to the people at Zazzle once again for helping us and our buns <3
