This week we want to ask you to rescue bunnies. In particular, support rescue shelters which have do such a valiant job, taking in rabbits whose future is uncertain, caring for them and trying to find them the right home.
One of these is Pawz for Thought which is based in Sunderland. Vicky from Paws says,
"Meet Jack and Vera.
Pawz for Thought is based in the North east of England and does not have a rescue centre, it relies on the good nature of fosterers."
And this heartfelt plea from an owner whose changed circumstances mean that she is moving to Australia and is unable to take her beloved rabbits with her
"Sadly, we will be unable to take our two buns with us to Australia. It's all really come full circle really, as we took in our first bunnies following the relocation of some friends and then a rescue bunny, and years later, we now have to find homes for our bunnies...
I know I am taking a chance, but you wouldn't happen to know of anyone who would be interested in two gorgeous house dwarf lops (6 and 3 years) that are in perfect health (no illness, no dentals, full vaccinations). I have piccies galore that would steal your heart!"
You may not be able to adopt nor to foster, but there could be other ways you can help...and it needn't be financial if times are tough for you too. Rescues appreciate practical support too...people who will fundraise for them, people who will clean out bunny homes. If you can do anything at all to help rescue bunnies, then please let the rescues know
