Rehome & Rescue

A survey by The Rabbit Welfare Association found that in 2010 alone over 67,000 pet rabbits were handed into rescue centres.  Bunny Bunkhouse is an avid supporter of rescues and always suggests enquirers contact rescue centres first rather than buy rabbits, guinea-pigs or any pets from pet shops or breeders.  Even if you are looking for a specific breed or a baby pet, rescue centres can help because they often have a range of ages and breeds.  If they don’t have the pet you’re looking for right now, they work alongside national organisations such as the RSPCA and other rescues around the country who might.  Your perfect pet may not take as long to find as you think.

Rescue centres work hard at ensuring that the best possible ‘forever’ homes are found for pets and each have their own set of homing policies.  As both rabbits and guinea-pigs are sociable animals they need to have company of their own kind and good rescue centres will offer bonding and advice on how to continue this process at home.

For an example of rehoming criteria, an outdoor safety leaflet and guide to bonding rabbits, please see the documents written by The Rabbit Crossing Rescue Centre below:
