    Default RSPCA Hutch size

    Does anyone have a link to the RSPCA hutchsize guidelines please. I have just emailed my concern about this 'Sherwood Deluxe Rabbit Hutch', currently selling on ebay. The response I have recieved was this

    Hi thank you for your concern and we have spoken to rspca and they state there are no guide lines for size of small animal hutches
    regards Jo

    Thank you, this one measures 78cm x 78cm x 113cm, which is just shocking. I am aware that the guidelines aren't laws, just guidelines. It has pd me off that she claims there are no such guidelines, so you can literally shove your rabbit in which ever small space you choose.

    The RSPCA are **** for this sort of stuff, the RWA have a scheme which businesses can register and they will promote them if they sell hutches that meet their minimum hutch standards.

    Is the retailer worth reporting to the Rabbit Welfare Association? They did get a tiny Argos hutch withdrawn I believe?
