Your rescue pet could be this year’s Cadbury Easter ‘bunny’

Does your rescue pet love the spotlight? The Cadbury Bunny Tryouts are back!

For the first time since the contest started five years ago, a rescue pet will be chosen to be the face of the Cadbury Clucking Bunny commercial airing in March.

From Feb. 15-Feb. 23, rescue pet parents across the U.S. can enter their pets for the chance to star in the beloved cream egg Easter campaign. The pet doesn’t even have to be furry — it can be scaly or feathered, too.
