Makes you wonder if the RSPCA branch actually tried to point her to other rescues though. There are lots of people out there that just aren't aware of other rescues, sounds ridiculous but its true. I get people all the time being surprised to find we have heaps of small rescues around. Many people assume the RSPCA and PDSA are the only places they can take their pets :(
So sad :(

That's terrible - I don't understand how anyone could do that. Poor animals. :(

Exactly. Whilst it is terrible to think of a pet being 'set free' and left to fend for itself I do question the advice given to people contacting the RSPCA about unwanted pets. All too often they are met with 'sorry we are full' No advice re private rescues etc. Although this may not be true of all RSPCA Branches it IS true with some. Until the RSPCA have a national standard with all branches working to the same level then this situation WILL happen again and again.
Sometimes people genuinely believe that a Pet Rabbit can survive in the wild. Sometimes people are incredibly STUPID not intentionally cruel.
