TWO Pershore women are organising a special event for those interested in rabbits at the de Montfort Veterinary Hospital in Evesham at the weekend.
Bunny enthusiasts are invited to to along to the Merstow Green hospital between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday (May 17) when there will be a veterinary support team on hand to answer questions about keeping and looking after rabbits.
Diane Price and Charlotte Evans are keen to put across the message that rabbits can be much more than fluffy pets kept in a hutch at the end of the garden.
“They can be litter trained and make lovely house pets,” said Charlotte.
They are also keen to point out there are alternatives to buying rabbits from a pet shop.
“There are rescue centres full of rabbits all over the place, including several not far from Evesham,” she said.
“Taking on a rescue bunny can be such a satisfying experience – it’s great to be able to offer a new life to a timid older bunny and see him blossom.”
