A rabbit is not just for Easter

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:14, 19th Mar, 2013 | 0

Every year as the weather warms and Easter arrives some parents think of rabbits as an a pet for their child.

The GSPCA this March want to send the message that a rabbit isn't just for Easter!!!

Over the last 18 months the GSPCA has had more stray and unwanted rabbits than the previous 5 years.

Many rabbits are bought on impulse and are housed in small hutches at the end of the garden with no exercise and the child often forgets the poor pet that is left for the parents to care for.

Taking care of your pets with the cold weather coming

With cold weather coming and potential sleet and snow on the way the GSPCA want pet owners to consider all the animals of Guernsey. During a cold snap the GSPCA are on full alert, ready to deal with a variety of animals affected by the low temperatures.

But you can also do your bit to prevent animals suffering over the cold period.

Do you have a pond?

If you have a pond, make sure you check it every day for ice, as toxic gases can build up in the water of a frozen pond. These can kill fish or frogs that are hibernating at the bottom.

In the last year the GSPCA has had more rabbits come in stray, unwanted and for rehoming than any of the staff can remember.

From Saturday the GSPCA will have a rabbit display at the front of the Shelter to educate about the needs of rabbits and the fact that a hutch is not enough.

Last month saw a dramatic change in the way rabbits are kept at the Animal Shelter and these large runs are currently both on display and for sale at the GSPCA for only £185.

The GSPCA currently has a selection of rabbits that need a home and these can be seen on our website please just -

Earlier this year a very kind lady made a fantastic donation that has enabled us to improve the many rabbits lives whilst they are at the GSPCA Animal Shelter.

In the last year the Animal Shelter has had to help rehome dozens of rabbits with the Christmas period proving to be a time where the shelter has had more rabbits in our care than anyone could ever recall.

Thankfully many of these rabbits are now in loving caring homes but for those that are at the Shelter we are always looking to help improve their stay.

Watch this space for some very exciting news……..

After a very kind donation of £2000 the GSPCA Animal Shelter will soon havi it’s very own rabbit village.

Volunteers from KPMG have given two days of work time to come along to the GSPCA Shelter in St Andrews to help give some extra protection to 15 large rabbit hutches before they are built.

The £2000 has meant the Shelter could purchase a number of very large outdoor enclosures to give the many rabbits as well as a few other residents a much better quality of life whilst they are waiting for new homes.

Springing Numbers of Guinea Pigs & Rabbits

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:21, 7th Mar, 2012 | 1

From a bunny boom to a guinea pig bonanza the Animal Shelter is now inundated with over 20 rabbits, guinea pigs and rats in need of a good home.

From strays, unwanted litters and those that cannot be cared for due to an owner’s change of circumstances or welfare reasons the Shelter is literally bursting with these little animals looking for new homes.

Just last night another stray rabbit was found wandering and we urge any owners that lose their pets to ensure they register their details with the Shelter as we have stray animals brought in every day.
