    Meet Angel. She lives very happily with one of our RWA members, April, as you can see, and her new bondmate, Ricky.

    A few months ago, she used to live alone in a tiny hutch. It was filthy and stinking. The roof leaked. The hutch was exposed to all types of weather, including blazing sunshine, and the owner had it covered in a tarpaulin because of the leaks, but that was left down over the front of the hutch hour after hour after hour so Angel couldn't even see out, nor get any fresh air, nor relief from the rank odour of her hutch.

    April rescued her from that, and now Angel is showing us all what sort of life a bunny ought to have and how joyful, playful and fun they can be

    Ricky is equally lucky. He was found wandering the streets around his home town. He'd been someone's pet but had either escaped or been dumped. He was brought to April by the lady who found him. Adverts were placed to try to help him find his way back home, but his owner never came forward. No one was looking for Ricky, nor missing him. Luckily he has a great and a safe, secure life with his Angel.


    Angel and Ricky are two of the lucky ones. We know that 67,000 rabbits a year go through rescue centres in the UK, but many thousands more are left to live in conditions like Angel used to. This is why our ' A Hutch Is Not Enough' campaign is so essential - we need to reach the owners who are not caring for their rabbits properly, and we need to work with retailers to improve the information they give and products that they sell to their customers. Please help us to help rabbits - Join the RWA today, and treat yourself to our quarterly magazine Rabbiting On.

    Now that is a great youtube video-it really shows how active a bunny can be when given the space. Imagine being trapped in a tiny space, with all that pent up energy, and no way to use it. It would drive you insane.
