Do you remember our story back in November of the case where we took on a large number of rabbits from the one home, working closely with the existing owners to improve conditions, the same day as we started a partnership with a cattery who also have 9 rabbits looking for a home? (see Where Did They All Come From?). So far 4 of the rabbits have been rehomed, and whilst weâ€™ve been getting neutering and vaccinations processed weâ€™ve been quaking in our boots worried about how to actually pay for it all when the bills came in.
You may also remember us telling you of the RWAF Benevolent Fund (Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund) just a few days later too? (see Reserve a Bunny Buddy and Get Neutering Paid For with RWAF).
Last night we received confirmation that the RWAF have approved our application to the Benevolent Fund, which will allow us to fund the vaccinations and neutering for the rabbits still waiting to be rehomed from that case.
That means that Mopsey, Chico, Snoopy, Snuggles, Kindle, Rebel, Libby, Bonnie, Bojangles, and Marley will all very shortly receive all their vaccinations and neutering. Once they have recovered from neutering we will also look at pairing some of them together ready for rehoming.
All these rabbits can be reserved NOW, so if you think you can provide a permanent, loving home to any of these guys, please get in touch now. Check out our adoption process and understanding cost & minimum donations.
The funding from the RWAF will really make a huge difference and is an excellent start to the year for us.
The RWAF, if you are unfamiliar with it, is an excellent charity that focusses 100% on the education and welfare awareness of rabbit ownership. It is funded in the main by subscribing members, and members receive a great deal of benefits including a quarterly â€œRabbiting On!â€ magazine, bunny boarding information, helpline and advice and much more. They have excellent advice leaflets available for downloading from their website, and you may well have seen some of their leaflets at your local vet practice or at our fundraising & awareness events. The fund also supports a wealth of research into rabbit welfare, helping to re-educate all rabbit owners about our favourite pets.
RWAF provides an all round â€œrabbit clubâ€: if youâ€™re not already a member, consider becoming a member today and help support the excellent work they do which Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care and so many other rabbit rescues throughout the UK have become reliant on to deliver our services.
