It was certainly a hoping Easter at the GSPCA with bunnies

Submitted by Steve on 16:38, 26th Apr, 2019 | 0

The GSPCA has recently seen a huge rise in the numbers of rabbits coming into our care.

With 25 rabbits looking for new homes and many more coming in over the next few days Easter was certainly a busy time at the GSPCA for those that care for the rabbits.

Many of the GSPCA rabbits looking for homes are now outside on our Bunny Hop Hill and we are not only appealing for new homes for those in our care but we are also appealing for funds to help build new enclosures for the rabbits at the GSPCA.

The GSPCA has been exceptionally busy with rabbits and baby bunnies in recent months.

With 25 currently at the Shelter we are still very busy and in need of homes.

Beckie Bailey GSPCA Animal Care Assistant and head of the bunnies said “We have had over 50 rabbits in our care recently and it has been very busy.”

“There also a number of diseases that affect rabbits here in Guernsey and we urge all rabbit owners to see their vet to ensure they are vaccinated and up to date with their medical needs.”

WARNING TO ALL RABBIT OWNERS - Rabbit Haemorraghic Viral Disease 2

Submitted by Steve on 16:23, 21st Jun, 2018 | 0

The GSPCA is asking all rabbits to take great care as Rabbit Haemorraghic Viral Disease (RHVD2) variant 2 has been discovered once again here in Guernsey.

The fatal disease is a huge risk to unvaccinated rabbits and especially to those in outside enclosures.

Last year the GSPCA were in close communication with local vets and the States Vet after the disease was discovered for the first time in Guernsey which resulted in a number of deaths and many rabbit owners vaccinating their pets.

The GSPCA helps over 150 wild and domestic rabbits every year.

We love to hear from animals that have been adopted from the GSPCA.

Yesterday we received this wonderful message from the owners of two rabbits adopted from the GSPCA last year:

We just wanted to send you an update of two bunnies we adopted in October. They have been re named Coco & Fudge (aka Madonna & Roulenska), we love them so very much and think they are very happy with us too! Lexi & Carrie xx

At the GSPCA we have nearly a dozen rabbits in need of homes some of which were at the Shelter when these two were in our care.
