"To buy a bunny and get all supplies would be MUCH more expensive  and I'd be cleaning a cage for 10 years...  What a deal!"
     "
The kids were so excited when we 'checked out the bunny.  I was just as excited when we returned all the supplies in six weeks."
"We fell in love with our bunny and we just couldn't send her back.  We used the 'first dibs' deal and we bought her"

     "It was great to know what to do and not have to worry about  anything because we could just call them or return the bunny when we  
     went on vacation.   Peace of mind was priceless.."

"I felt insulted when I wasn't allowed to buy a rabbit without fostering first.  Now I get it.  They want to keep rabbits from being abandoned after Easter and I'm a bit embarassed to admit that I would have done that...Two months was plenty!"
   "I was going to just get a rabbit on the internet, a bunny is a bunny, right?  But who knows why they are being sold... Also I was worried    
   about getting it and if was sick or had fleas... and potential vet bills.  This option was perfect for us .   It was just long enough
.
