Camp Nibble

Animal rescue charity Camp Nibble is urging the government to introduce a code of practice for the welfare of domestic rabbits. In their November 2012 press release the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund (RWAF) revealed that around 67,000 unwanted rabbits passed through UK rescue shelters each year. The numbers that do not successfully make it into rescue shelters is almost certainly several times this amount. "Most of our rescue rabbits one way or another have ended up at Camp Nibble due to people taking on rabbits with little realisation of what is needed for them to live happy, healthy lives. They are widely misunderstood animals and are very often mistakenly taken on as cheap, easy pets. In many cases the responsibility for their care is even left in the hands of children. As intelligent, sensitive animals that can live in excess of ten years it is clear that something has to change" said Hannah Potts Camp Nibble trustee. Camp Nibble is asking all UK animal lovers to join in urging the government to introduce a code of practice for the welfare of domestic rabbits by signing and sharing their important government e-petition. Their e-petition is proving a very successful vehicle for raising awareness of rabbit welfare issues. They hope that it will show the legislators a public strength of feeling towards beginning to address the current rabbit welfare crisis.
