PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (WTAP) - This time of the year rabbits, ducks, and chicks are bought for Easter but local shelters warn against getting these animals.
While it may seem like a good idea these non-traditional pets require often more care than a typical dog or cat.
In many cases after the Easter season, these pets end back in the shelters or released into the wild.
The shelter suggests if you are looking for a new pet there are many dogs and cats available that should consider.
