Pet Adoption & Animal Rescue News

2009

Hello, and welcome to 2009! Although the news page has been very quiet over the last year, petsr.org is still going strong with plenty of new animals available for adoption being added everyday!

View them now!

Petsr is slowly being re-built to make it more relevent and easier to navigate. When you will see the new stuff is anyone's guess but there is something coming I assure you!

In the meantime, thanks to all the rescues who have contributed to the website over the last year.

Survey Reveals Rabbit Misery

As part of National Rabbit Week, results have been released of a new survey by the RSPCA

323 Rabbits were surveyed between May and November 2007 and of those:

  • 88% had no company and were kept in solitary confinement.
  • 70% did not have access to a run and spent 24 hours a day locked in a hutch.
  • 55% did not have an adequate hutch
  • 50% did not have clean bedding
  • 42% of hutches were in full sunlight without adequate shade
  • 45% did not have any water available
  • 30% did not have any food available

RSPCA regional manager, Jonathan Silk, said: "For the last two years we have discovered that the average amount of time that a rabbit was owned before being unwanted was as little as three months. Rabbits are becoming throwaway pets, bought for as little as £10, given very little quality of life and wanted for a very short period of time."

The survey also highlighted that:

  • 57% of owners who bought their rabbit from a shop or garden centre said they received no advice or literature on how to care for it.
  • 42% of rabbits were taken on as pets for children.
  • 32% of rabbits were living in old, often unsuitable hutches, which came free from their friend or neighbour.
  • 11% of rabbits were the result of unwanted or unplanned breeding.
