Rabbits are stars this weekend. This Sunday, February 6, 2011, the 12th Annual Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade and Festival takes place in New York City. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals® will showcase adoptable rabbits from Rabbit Rescue & Rehab at the event. Participation is part of the Alliance’s Fifth Annual I Love NYC Pets Month, which occurs in February.

Rabbits are being featured because this is the year of the rabbit on the Chinese zodiac. Rabbit Rescue & Rehab and Animal Care & Control of NYC (both members of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals) will participate in the parade with an animal adoption van filled with a dozen adorable ,adoptable rabbits in the windows. The adoption van is provided by another Alliance Participating Organization, North Shore Animal League America.

All rabbits will be available for adoption at Animal Care & Control of NYC, located at 326 East 110th St. (between 1st and 2nd Avenues). Rabbit experts will be on hand at the shelter to provide information on caring for the newest member of your family and why these adorable animals make great house pets.
