House Rabbit Society book-signing with Marinell Harriman

HRS Rabbit Center
148 Broadway
Richmond, California

The House Rabbit Society Rabbit Center presents an afternoon with House Rabbit Society founder and House Rabbit Handbook author, Marinell Harriman, as she introduces the fourth edition of the book that started the house rabbit movement.

The House Rabbit Handbook, first published in 1985, quickly became the "bible" for thousands of people who lived with house rabbits and inspired countless thousands of others to bring their "outside" rabbits indoors. Furthermore, the House Rabbit Handbook was the springboard from which House
Rabbit Society and the international community of house rabbit lovers was born.

Marinell Harriman's observations about rabbit behavior, through her own 20 years of fostering, as well as through her work with hundreds of other house rabbit observers, have culminated in this new edition which contains new insights and a deeper understanding of rabbit behavior, as well as the best and most current information on rabbit health and veterinary matters for the house rabbit caretaker.

After purchasing your new signed House Rabbit Handbook, we would also like to acquaint visitors with the broad range of volunteer opportunities available at the HRS Rabbit Center, as well as at surrounding chapters. Whether you are a person who likes to sit quietly and groom and socialize a shy shelter bunny, or someone who would like to help with public outreach by educating the public on the joys and responsibilities of living with a house rabbit, we have a place for you. Or maybe you have some extra time on your hands and could help by answering the phone on our busy days. Other opportunities are helping with the "Hop Shop," database entry, assisting at special events, assisting our health care staff and volunteers, transporting rabbits to and from the veterinarian's office or shelters, or working with a committee to plan an organic garden for bunnies. Local chapters are seeking many of the same kinds of assistance, including transportation, grooming, socializing, outreach and special events, and of course fostering, and will be on hand to tell you about their amazing accomplishments and how you can be a part of their work.

Mark your calendar now and join us for a most enjoyable afternoon. Refreshments will be served, and admission is free and open to the public.
