Others ways to help
There are hundreds of rabbit rescues up and down the country and most (if not all) will rely on volunteers and donations to keep them running.
Huge numbers of rabbits are being abandoned every year and this is pushing many rescues to breaking point.
Become a volunteer
To become a volunteer is a great way to help your local rescue. Can you help clean out their enclosures or help clean bowls and litter trays. Help feed the bunnies and provide them all with fresh water. Could you help by offering your DIY skills in maintaining the enclosures etc at the rescue?
You could maybe help out with admin jobs or driving to and from the vets. The list is endless as to what you can do to help out.
Donate money or products
To help with donating money is also a great way to show your support.
Lots of rescues will have a scheme where you can sponsor very old or sick bunnies at a rescue, for as little as £2 a month to help pay towards their up keep. Or you could help by donating towards their vet bills.
Donating products to a rescue is always welcome. Donate items like hays, toys, pellets, dried herbs and healthy treats. Most rescues will have an Amazon wish list. Just click on the ‘Wish list’ link to the right hand side when in Amazon and then click ‘Find a wish list’ and type in the name of the rescue.
You could also donate your old hutches, pet carriers and other accessories to rescues.
