Rabbits neglected

DID YOU know that despite being one of the country’s most popular pets, rabbits are also one of the most neglected?

DID YOU know that despite being one of the country’s most popular pets, rabbits are also one of the most neglected?

Reams of rabbits are spending their lives cramped in cages, deprived of food and water and desperately lacking care and attention. The RSPCA is inundated with thousands of neglected rabbits every year who are collected, rescued or seized by RSPCA inspectors.

In addition, more than 8,000 rabbits have been reported abandoned to the RSPCA since 2007 and a further 3,300 rabbits have been signed over to the charity by owners who can no longer look after them.
