On our rescue webpage for May we feature Cuddly Critters in Essex and Animal Concern in Cumbria. Both work hard to rescue and rehome rabbits in their area and would appreciate your support. They have rabbits for adoption but also appreciate practical support. Please visit this page to find out about them. http://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rwf/?section=rescues.html
We've also been contacted by Rabbit Residence Rescue who are in need of help. Rabbit Residence Rescue is situated in Hertfordshire.
The Rabbit Residence Rescue is currently experiencing an emergency situation. Even with a steady stream of rabbits being rehomed to great new homes, the rescue has more rabbits than ever. Numbers have been pushed up by increased pressure for places and a number of emergency intake cases. Recent emergency cases include three baby wild bunnies that arrived at two and a half weeks old having been dug up in their nest at a building site, and a group of six baby cashmere bunnies that were, sadly, abandoned in a cardboard box in a field and were handed in last week. These bunnies will need to be neutered and vaccinated before they are rehomed.
We already have an outstanding bill with our (very understanding) vets practice making these forthcoming costs a big concern. We are also desperately trying to repair sheds and improve weather proofing of enclosures. If anyone is able to help us in any practical way, please contact us at SponsorRabbitResidence@gmail.com or go to www.rabbitresidence.org.uk
The Rabbit Residence Rescue is based in Hertfordshire and is run by the rescue manager/founder, Caroline, and a dedicated team of volunteers. We love all the bunnies in our care as if they were our own pets and are dedicated to providing the best possible care and to encouraging others with rabbits or wanting to adopt to do the same. We have a non-euthanasia policy and will never have a rabbit with quality of life put to sleep. This means we have many elderly and special needs rabbits that stay with us long term. We are a not-for-profit organisation.
