Rabbit Awareness Week
This year’s Rabbit Awareness Week runs from 28 June to 4 July 2021 and marks 15 years of reaping rabbit rewards!
We’re ‘hopping for joy’ about all the great improvements RAW has helped make to rabbit wellbeing; so much has been achieved to improve the welfare of our bunnies, but there’s still more to do!
Animal charities across the country have once again teamed up for RAW to raise the profile of rabbits and help owners do the very best for their bunnies! We love rabbits, but as our PAW Report shows they can sometimes be the 'forgotten pets' – with nearly half (49%) of all UK rabbits live alone (equating to around 440,000 rabbits) and a quarter (25%, around 230,000 rabbits) kept in cramped hutches that are too small. So we’re working extra hard to shine a light on the needs of our bunny buddies.
The theme for this year’s 'Hopping Through the Years', providing owners with all the information you need to care for rabbits, from an early age, right through to their golden years. Find out more about caring for aging rabbits in our blog post.
What all rabbits need
Find out more about rabbits’ 5 Welfare Needs – what they need to live happy and healthy lives!
You need to keep your rabbits healthy! This mean taking them to the vet when they're poorly and giving them a regular check over at home.
Rabbits can get really sad and depressed on their own, so giving them the right bunny buddy is super important in keeping them happy.
Feeding your rabbits the right food does more than keep them in shape. It can also keep their teeth healthy (because they never stop growing!).
Your bunnies need the perfect home where they can run, play and be safe from predators or bad weather. Rabbits need a lot of space!
Your rabbits need to, well, be rabbits! They should have everything they need to run, jump, dig and forage otherwise they'll get unhappy and bored.
Looking for advice on all things rabbit-related? You've come to the right place! Our vets have put together loads of free guides for bunny owners!
