Update on the 6 Baby Wild Bunnies

The 6 wild bunnies are doing well; they have moved to an outdoor cage which will limit the amount of human contact to try and stop them becoming too domesticated.  Hopefully they will be re introduced into the wild in a few weeks.

Rabbit Awareness Week (18th – 26th June)


Today marks the start of Rabbit Awareness Week (or RAW for short).  This year’s RAW is campaigning for companionship for rabbits, encouraging rabbit owners who own single rabbits to visit rescue centres and find a suitable friend for their rabbit.

During the week many vets will be offering rabbit health checks (known as Rabbit MOTs) and retailers will be running bunny related events.

Visit http://www.rabbitawarenessweek.co.uk/ for more information.

Mixed Bag

First we’d like to welcome back guinea pig MacTavish, who is now in much better health and has jumped straight back into the group.

On a similar theme, Bunny Burrows house bunny Hans has been back to the vets for another checkup and cleanup, but is generally doing really well despite how he looks.

Big bunnies Fritz and Gigi have been out enjoying the weather, but by the look on Fritz’s face I don’t think he was enjoying sitting next to Gigi’s feet!

And finally Hetty has been doing what Hetty does best – sleeping!


Baby Bunny Update

You may remember we told you about 9 baby wild rabbits that came to Bunny Burrows a few weeks ago?  Well the good news is 6 of them have survived and are doing really well.  Here’s a few pics of them.  They are mega cute!

Meet Hans, the New Bunny in the Burrow

Last week Bunny Burrows took in a very sorry bunny who we have since called Hans.  He was taken to a vets in North Yorkshire after someone found him wondering.  The vets contacted Bunny Burrows who agreed to take him in.  When he arrived he couldn’t hold his head straight and had puss seeping from a wound in the back of his head which the vet hadn’t noticed!  And the smell from it was unbelievable!

Gwen took him to see Auntie Trudi the vet who operated to clean up the wound.  He is now well on the road to recovery and is a lot happy since the operation.

He has got his feet well under the table and has become a house rabbit at Bunny Burrows!

9 Baby Bunnies

9 baby bunnies Here’s a pic of 9 baby bunnies taken yesterday (Tues 10th May).  They are about a week old and were rescued from the A1 roadworks.

Bunny Burrows has taken in approx. 30 bunnies and hares from the A1 roadworks since the work began.
