Rabbits are not simple first pets

Rabbits needs are more complex than most realise and having happy and content rabbits requires research, time, money and commitment. While pet shops would have you think they are simple starter pets, they are not.

However, when cared for correctly, rabbits are engaging, active and clever animals that can make great companion animals. If you think you can provide a great home for a rabbit, keep reading.

Why we say ‘Adopt don’t Shop’

Rabbits in pet shops are bred in bad conditions, meaning their health is often poor, temperaments can be unpredictable and you’re funding highly unethical mass breeding. 

Rescues all over the UK are struggling with unwanted animals. Why add to the problem of overpopulation when there are so many lovely rabbits waiting for their forever homes in foster care? 

Pet shops get their rabbits from highly unethical rodent mills which are horrible places. Vote with your money and don’t support it!

How do I provide a great rabbit home?

Rabbits are highly active and require at least a 70 square foot enclosure 24/7. They must never be shut into a hutch or cage, even ‘just at night’.

The larger, the better for their enclosure. Here are our three top tips: 

Rabbits need rabbit friends! Never keep a single rabbit

Correct diet & healthcare – access to rabbit savvy vet and correct diet including unlimited, quality hay.

Stimulation and enrichment – tunnels, dig boxes and foraging activities.
