Brooklyn, NY, March 08, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Dogs and cats join the rabbits in the Easter spotlight as Rescue Chocolate reissues two popular gifts items whose profits are donated to animal rescue organizations.
One product, the Make Mine Chocolate bunny, gets its name from a House Rabbit Society initiative to warn parents away from giving live animals as Easter gifts for younger children. Typically, in the months following Easter, local humane societies and rabbit rescues are flooded with rabbits, former Easter gifts whose owners no longer want them. The unluckier rabbits are dumped outside where predators, cars, illness, and injury virtually guarantee them an early death. Instead, gifting kids (of all ages) with a chocolate bunny avoids the misery all around.
Rescue Chocolate's version is a 2-ounce, organic, fairly traded chocolate bunny which comes perched on a bed of straw and wrapped in a clear cello bag. It retails for $6.50.
The second product, called Easter Babies, highlights the plight of newborn puppies and kittens who wind up in animal control facilities where their special needs are hard to fulfill. The Rescue Chocolate Babies pouch contains a variety of dark chocolate Easter figurines wrapped in festive foil. They sell for $8 apiece.
In addition to the special holiday products, Rescue Chocolate offers a line of two-ounce chocolate bars in seven flavors, extra dark Robust Rescue bars, and two varieties of mini chocolate squares. Each item is handcrafted in Brooklyn and shipped worldwide. The company is currently partnering with the Petfinder Foundation to share its profits with grassroots animal rescue organizations. During the month of March, Red Hook Dog Rescue will be the beneficiary of the grant.
