It's finally arrived!  Rabbit Awareness Week 2013 which runs from today until 12th May 2013.

Throughout the week we'll be sharing lots of useful information about rabbit welfare on our website & facebook page, and sharing news, articles, videao and more from various rabbit focussed organisations throughout the UK.

There are loads of vet practices in your area who are also offering FREE rabbit health checks during the week.  Get in touch with your vet and ask them if they are taking part or look out for our news updates for this and other special offers.

And don't forget you can vote for your favourite ""I Kissed A Bunny"" photo in our free photo competition at http://www.fairlybelovedrabbitcare.org/raw

On the lead up to Rabbit Awareness Week, we've been asking members of the public to submit their favourite pictures of their rabbits in our ""I Kissed A Bunny & I Liked It!"" competition.

Winners will receive a 1-hour outdoor photo shoot, and their winning photo will be used in our adoption campaign posters.

Voting is now open and WE NEED YOU to vote for your favourite photos.

We are incredibly excited and very proud to announce that we have been shortlisted as a finalist in Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2013!

We have been nominated and shortlisted within the category of ""Animal Charity Team of the Year"".  For full details of all the awards and finalists see Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2013.

This is testament to the excellent team of volunteers who support David, Feona & Bunny in the running of the organisation.  We'd like to take the time to give them a huge vote of thanks and also to thank all those who nominated us for the award.

The winners will be announced on Thursday 2nd May 2013 at the Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards ceremony held during the ADCH Conference in Stratford-upon-Avon, so we'll let you all know how we get on.

Rabbit Awareness Week is coming!  This year, it runs from 4th May - 12th May 2013.

We're planning various activities throughout Rabbit Awareness Week, starting with our online photo competition ""I Kissed A Bunny And I Liked It"".


During RAW we plan to emphasise the benefits and necessity for rabbits to be kept in pairs or small groups, demonstrating their playful nature and their desire for constant company.  We figured what better way to do this than to show off everyone's rabbits doing the thing they enjoy best - bunny kisses.

We want you to submit your photos of your bunny kisses - either you kissing your rabbit, your rabbits kissing each other, or even rabbits with other animals.

Entries can be submitted online NOW and until the end of 3rd May 2013.

During Rabbit Awareness Week, we'll then be asking members of the public to vote on the competition entries.

Winning entries will receive a free 1-hour photo shoot kindly donated by Robyn Lewis Pet Photography, and your winning entry will also be used in our literature and adoption posters.
