Many thousands of people keep rabbits as pets but sometimes they tire of them and then the rabbits have to be rehomed.

The SSPCA run a rehoming service for rabbits so if you decide to get one as a pet check them out first. Make sure though you are prepared.
Rabbits are social animals. They need attention, a hutch, food and vet fees will need paid.
They need quite a big space because where you home them will also require activities that can keep them interested – tunnels and toys. The hutch should be a minimum of 10ft x 6ft x 3ft high.

Rabbits teeth never stop growing so they do need to nibble and chew. Carrots are not good for them because they contain a lot of sugar and not enough fibre.
The best diet for a rabbit is one that’s as close to a wild rabbit’s diet as possible and remember they always need fresh water.
