I had a phone call from a lady this evening (a friend of Sues Rabbit Rescue) who is in need of some help and advice regarding the welfare of some rabbits belonging to a friend of hers.
I'm trying to find a hutch/run setup that can be donated to a lady who is keeping rabbits in a tiny hutch setup with babies. Her friend believes she doesn't know any better and wants to help improve the situation before making any decisions to report her for cruelty.
The male/female rabbit keep getting pregnant and she gives the babies away, according to her friend.
One of the babies is ill according to her friend so we have agreed to sort out veterinary treatment and also neuter the male to prevent further litters.
The rabbits are currently being fed on a diet of muesli and lettuce diet without any hay.
We are sending some welfare leaflets and some pellets and would appreciate if anyone has a hutch/run setup if this could be made available for this lady who is happy to come and collect on behalf of her friend so that once the male has been neutered- the male/female can be re-bonded ( at an appropriate date) without the risk of further litters.
The lady is going to ask her friend to sign over the rabbits to us and we will require 3 foster/rescue placements for the babies.
If anyone is able to help in please pm or if the inbox is full email firstname.lastname@example.org
