Bunny Fever! 9 Questions Before You Take The Hop

(PETS/EASTER/BUNNY RABBITS) Easter is just around the corner, and pet stores are filled with rabbits just waiting to hop into your Easter basket. So you and your children-–especially your children-–may be hoping for a bunny. But like the rush to buy a dalmatian after 101 Dalmatians was a big hit, it can be a different story when the rabbits (or chicks) come home to roost. Unfortunately, 90 percent of rabbits brought into American households for the spring holiday end up euthanized. Want to be part of the solution instead of creating a problem? Adopt a rabbit instead of buying. And before you do anything, read what the experts at 3 Bunnies Rabbit Rescue say you should consider before bringing home a bunny. – Global Animal

The French Bulldog Fad & The Cost Of Being Cute

(DOG BREEDS) There's no denying French Bulldogs are irresistibly cute, but these dogs are far more fragile than they appear. Despite being the sixth most popular dog breed in the U.S., health problems often plague their lives. This became a point of concern after Kokito, a 10-month-old French Bulldog puppy, died aboard a United Airlines flight upon being stored in overhead storage compartment. While placing any animal in a storage bin can lead to overheating and asphyxiation, the risk is particularly serious for “brachycephalic dogs,” or dogs with flat, wide heads. Read on to learn more about the health risks associated with overbreeding French Bulldogs. With so many great dogs in need of homes, we must steer away from this designer dog breed infatuation and always remember to adopt, don't shop! -- Global Animal

Introducing The Largest City In The U.S. To Ban Fur Sales

(FUR TRADE/ANIMAL NEWS) In a unanimous vote, San Francisco has officially become the largest city in the U.S. to ban fur sales! With fur sales in San Francisco ranging from $11 million to a whopping $40 million, the ban is expected to most significantly impact an estimated 30 retailers in the Union Square area. While the new legislation does not apply to other animal products like leather, lambskin, or wool, retailers with fur in their existing inventory will no longer be able to sell fur products starting January 2020. San Francisco joins two other California cities, West Hollywood and Berkeley, in saying no to fur. In recent months, an increasing number of influential top fashion designers are also choosing to go fur-free. An estimated 50 million animals all over the world are slaughtered for their fur, with 85 percent of pelts coming from fur farms. We hope that San Francisco's historic ban will encourage legislators globally to consider similar bans. Read on to learn more about the unanimous vote and see how you can take action against the fur trade below. -- Global Animal
