Rescue Centres are overflowing with unwanted and discarded rabbits there was an estimated 33,000 rabbits in rescue in 2013. There is only so much they can do without your help. Purchasing rabbits from a pet store or breeder only adds to the problem. Sadly, even rescuing from a pet store simply encourages them to order more from a breeder. Find out more about adopting a rabbit from the following rescue centres.
Rescue Centre: The Rabbit Residence Rescue Centre
Contact: Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rabbit Residence Rescue, based in Hertfordshire, takes in, rehabilitates and rehomes abandoned and unwanted rabbits. Run by a dedicated team of volunteers, they provide the best possible care to over 200 rabbits and encourage others to do the same. All of the rabbits are neutered/spayed and vaccinated before going to new homes. They have strong rehoming criteria to encourage owners to provide the best possible environment meeting Rabbit Welfare Association recommendations. Leaflets and a handbook are provided to support adopters. With a non-euthanasia policy they never have a rabbit with quality of life put to sleep.
Rescue Centre: The Blue Cross Animal Charity
Contact: Katie Stiles at Burford@bluecross.org.uk
Blue Cross has been dedicated to helping poorly, injured and abandoned pets for over 100 years. We opened the world’s first animal hospital in 1906 and since then our doors have never closed to sick and homeless animals. With your help, they never will.
Last year we cared for 305 unwanted rabbits and 338 other small pets, like guinea pigs and chinchillas. Our Burford rehoming centre in Oxfordshire was opened in 1990 and finds happy homes for hundreds of dogs, cats, horses, and small pets every year.
We don’t have any fixed rules about what makes the “perfect home”. Instead, our tailor-made rehoming service looks at each case individually and matches people to the right pet for them and their lifestyle. If you’d like to give a home to a rescue pet, we’ll do all we can to help.
