A message from the RWAF

(July 04, 2012)

The Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund say:

'Most of the calls the helpline is taking at the moment are from people that no longer want their rabbits - reasons include pregnancy, children loosing interest and not being able to afford to look after them any longer. Before anyone takes on rabbits as pets, please be sure that you can afford care for them properly, this includes neutering and vaccinating (we estimate total costs are £11,000 over their lifetime) and that you can commit to keeping them for around 10 years - rescue centres can not cope with the number of unwanted rabbits each year. Please please share, to raise awareness of the thousands of rabbits in rescue patiently waiting for their forever homes.'
