Our new rabbit welfare campaign has begun:
What Bugs a Bunny?
So what’s the answer – and why are we asking?
Sadly, thousands of pet rabbits end up in our care every year.
We 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.
Do you know what rabbits love to eat?
We've also found out that 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!
Help us to spread hay fever!
Join us on our journey
We've 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.
And just for fun, here's a quick guide to what rabbits should eat from our very own RSPCA gangster, Bugsy Malone!
