Amidst a “tremendous uptick” in the rate of small animals arriving at the facilities of Massachusetts animal welfare groups, a coalition of the organizations will briefly drop all adoption fees on hundreds of the pint-sized creatures.
Rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, birds, mice and other small animals will be up for adoption this coming Saturday and Sunday at five animal welfare groups at no charge.
The event — dubbed “Some-Bunny is Waiting For You This Easter!” — is a joint venture between the Animal Rescue League of Boston, MSPCA-Angell, the Northeast Animal Shelter, the Dakin Humane Society, and the Lowell Humane Society.
“The collective animal welfare community in Massachusetts have seen a tremendous uptick in the number of small animals coming through our doors over the past year or so,” said Dr. Edward Schettino, the president and CEO of the Animal Rescue League of Boston. “This is a wonderful opportunity for those looking to bring a small animal into their family, and with the small animal surge continuing, it also allows organizations to help even more of these animals in need.”

Potential adopters may need to bring a photo of the animal’s future enclosure and a carrying case with them to the events.
