Sadly, thousands of pet rabbits end up in the care of the RSPCA every year.
The Inspectors see thousands more in their own homes – which unhappily are often small hutches where the rabbits are kept all day with no company, and no opportunities to play, exercise or graze on grass.
Rabbits have complex needs, and can be time-consuming and costly to care for properly, but for those prepared to meet their needs they can be very rewarding pets.
Even people who love their rabbits or want to get one don't always get it right.
• Nearly one in four people think that a rabbit's main diet is 'rabbit food' – pellets or muesli from the pet shop.
• Around one in five think it's carrots.
• But less than one in ten know the right answer – that it's hay and grass!
The National RSPCA have done lots of research to make sure we're giving out the right advice – so we're now inviting you to come with us on a journey as we find out What Bugs a Bunny?
The first part of our campaign is called Hay Fever and explores what we should be feeding our rabbits to keep them happy and healthy.
We are marking this year’s World Spay Day by offering super discounted neutering for local cats and dogs throughout the month of March, for eligible pet owners on benefits and low incomes.
