Everybunny Needs Some Bunny:

Rabbits need the company of a least one other neutered rabbit.  They are highly social creatures who live in groups in the wild, and play, eat and groom together. Click here to find out about our rabbit bonding service, if you'd like help to introduce your rabbit to a friend. 

 

Something Has to Change:

Rabbits are the most neglected and cruely treated pets in the UK, despite being the third most popular pet.  This is mainly due to owners not understanding their needs, and poor advice from pet shops and breeders.
