6. Bunny Wonderland SG
Co-founder of Bunny Wonderland SG, Jackie was once an ‘impulsed’ owner and ‘accidental’ breeder when the initial group of four bunnies gave her a family of 24 rabbits after just a couple of months. Fast forward a decade later, she and her partner Ms Lynne Tan, an animal rescuer has gone on to help re-homed over 300 rabbits. Each year, the privately run bunny shelter rescues about 100 rabbits and spends a great portion of donations on supplies and medical care, including sterilisation. Even though Bunny Wonderland SG isn’t a registered organisation, both Jackie and Lynne hope through word of mouth, more people will come to know of their cause and become advocates for responsible pet ownership and discourage the unethical operations of the pet industry.
Pets are not toys neither are they playthings that are used for solely entertainment when you are bored. They are addition to any family just like having a new member in the household. Even as these animals provide families with joy and fulfilment, there have been numerous cases of pet adoption on the impulse. A lot of resources in terms of time, money and love have been put during foster care to return these animals into "re-home'' conditions. So think carefully before choosing to adopt – whether you got the time and financial support to have a new member in your family. And of course, support adoption over the growing unethical practices in the pet industry.
