As you all know sadly Jane Dexter has decided to close her rescue as soon as the bunnies in her care have all found loving forever homes and therefore I will not be fostering for her in the future, this is something I really ejoyed doing and will miss working for and with Jane, although I will be eternally grateful for all that Jane has taught me when it comes to looking after and nursing rabbits.

It is therefore with much pleasure that I tell you I will be opening my own Sanctuary and Rescue, which will be know as The Rabbit Retreat.

I will be giving a permanant home to elderly, special needs and unrehomable rabbits, as I have done with Mack & Mabel and Harriet & Harvey, to name but a few.

I will continue to help with rescuing rabbits, particularly some of the larger rescues as we have done in the past, and will assist other rescues when the need arises. I will be fostering for emergency situations. I will also be taking in and nursing sick rabbits when their owners are unable to or do not have the experience as I have done in the past. I will continue to help other rescues for requests of bunny runs and home checks.

Since I have been a member of this forum we have received overwhelming support for some of rescue work we have done, we have appealed for support quite a few times when faced with large emergency rescues and this community has come up trumphs every time, support that we couldn't have managed without, and I have to say that this is the forums strength, I therefore trust that I can count on the support I will need to continue to work for rabbit welfare.

Thank you

Awwwww thank you everyone, it's really comforting to get support like this, I know that it's going to be hard work, stressful, tiring and traumatic and I know I am going to face a lot of heartbreak along the way and shed many tears but I also know that I will bring a lot of happiness, pleasure and comfort to some bunnies,

Thanks guys

It takes a special person to have the heart to take care of the "elderly, special needs and unrehomable rabbits." The only other person who does that is Jaypot. Thank you for such kind work. Every year, Tam's christmas rescue help out rescue center like yours for medical equipment, rabbit toys etc., last year we raise much more money than the year before, we'll make sure your name is added to that list this coming year.

Congrats.:thumb:

Good luck in your new venture. When I think of rescue rabbits one of the pairs I remember is Mack and Mabel, I can remember them coming in and being horrified at their neglect and then seeing their progress with your care. Well done on giving more rabbits the same opportunity for a happy life :thumb:

Actually we have 64 "elderly, special needs and unrehomeable rabbits" here at Hopper Haven so Jaypot and Snowy are not the only ones;) And there are others - I know of another in Warwickshire already as well as a well know one here in Worcestershire.

But it is certainly good news that there is to be another sanctuary in the area, there are definitely enough needy rabbits to go around:(

Good on ya Theo:thumb::thumb:

I want to add that I value homeless shelters that take care of old and special needs rabbits a lot more than regular homeless rabbit shelters. So people like you and Jaypot has a special place in my heart. Like in the Christmas fund raising last year, I mentioned to Tam that we have to make sure Jaypot get something from the fund raise. Fortunately in the end, Tam mentioned that something to the effect that Jaypot is taken care of from another source.
