Rabbit Rehoming Appeal

PRESS RELEASE 9th february 2015 –  Hop-a-long to your local RSPCA

Your local RSPCA are desperate to rehome the growing number of unwanted rabbits in their care. Whether you would like one bunny or a pair, young or old, shy or confident, or an indoor or outdoor rabbit –  hop-a-long to your local branch to find the perfect bunny for you.

All rabbits are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, de-flead and microchipped. Most were seized by Inspectors from cruelty yet despite their ordeals are friendly, loving rabbits that would make ideal pets.

William, Geoffrey and Timmy are gorgeous black and white single rabbits who would like be rehomed with another female bunny. All have lovely personalities. Faith, 2 yrs and Cyril, 9 months are a fluffy, friendly pair of bunnies looking for a calm home together. Lily and Larry are 3 yrs old. This gentle natured pair need a quiet retirement home together.

Sadly the most overlooked bunny is ‘Tiny Tim’ who was seized along with 30 other as part of a cruelty case. This small, cute bunny has been in RSPCA care for nearly 3 years with no offer of a home! He has a cheeky streak so needs a child free indoor home without dogs or other rabbits!

If you want to find out more about Tiny Tim or any of the other wonderful rabbits looking for homes call the RSPCA on: 01625 669620 or visit rspca-macclesfield.org.uk

NOTES FOR EDITORS:  The branch was registered with the Charity Commission in October 1969 (Reg No 225689) and is one of 175 separate RSPCA branches operating under the umbrella and regulations of the national charity.  Like the national charity it receives no government funding and only a small contribution from HQ RSPCA each year.  It is an “all volunteer” branch with no salaried staff, no offices and no RSPCA badged animal boarding facilities or veterinary support.  Its prime function is to take in abused and cruelty case animals from the uniformed RSPCA Inspectorate which have been seized by inspectors or which have been signed over to them within the area bounded by the this branch’s borders – see map at ‘About Us’ page of web site – www.rspca-macclesfield.org.uk for details.  The website gives a good overview of branch activities and animals currently in our care.
