Rabbit Awareness Week
Anya, our rescue bunny who lived with us until she crossed the Rainbow Bridge in June 2007
It's Rabbit Awareness Week here in the UK - a chance to raise the profile of these wonderful pets.
The RSPCA is supporting the campaign in England and Wales for the whole month of May with over 100 RSPCA branches and animal centres running events to help raise awareness of rabbits ' welfare needs. You can take your rabbit for a free health check at a vet or attend educational events about rabbit welfare. You can find out what's happening near you by visiting this page.
Rabbits are the third most popular domestic pet and make wonderful companions but they are often misunderstood so this is a great campaign to try to raise their profile a little and improve the conditions for rabbits that are kept as pets.
