Scarlett and Pita seem to be 'hopping along happily' now, but just a month ago it was a different story.

The bunnies had been neglected by their owner.

"Their nails were quite long, they were obese, they were getting improper pellets with treats in them," said Vivian Barna who is the President/Founder of All About Rabbits Rescue.

It's stories like this one that have inspired Barna to create her Queens-based non-profit "All About Rabbits Rescue."

The group saves abandoned and neglected rabbits like Scarlett and Pita, and tries to find them loving homes.

"We've adopted close to 150 rabbits so far, we have prevented a lot of rabbits from entering the shelter, we've taken strays," said Barna.

With Easter quickly approaching, the group wants prospective bunny parents to know how serious of a commitment adopting one is.

Along with a high-fiber diet full of hay and leafy greens, they say these floppy-eared pets should get at least four hours of exercise a day.

"It's not an Easter decoration; rabbits live 7-14 years with proper care." Wendy Thompson, Adoption Coordinator, All About Rabbits Rescue

The organization says the biggest misconception about rabbits, is that they're a low-maintenance pet.  In reality, many we spoke with say they need just as much care as a dog or cat.

"Rabbits need rabbit-skilled vets, they require special handling, you need to rabbit proof your home, if you don't want to have chewed furniture," said Barna.

"A couple of weeks after Easter, after people realize how much work they are, that's when very often they're surrender to shelters, which is the best case scenario, or they're let loose," said Thompson.

And so for making sure rabbits have a helping hand to hop to, Vivian Barna is our Queens Person of the Week.
