The RWAF has been instrumental in changing perceptions about rabbits as pets. As a result of our work, more and more people are realising that rabbits have complicated needs and aren’t the cheap and easy children’s pets that can be locked in a small hutch at the end of the garden. There is still a long way to go so we’ll continue to make our voice heard to help domestic rabbits live the lives they deserve.

A Hutch Is Not Enough

A Hutch Is Not Enough sums up, in 5 words, that there is so much more to keeping rabbits than many people realise. We aim to change perceptions, both within the pet industry and amongst owners.

Capone Campaign

Possibly the biggest threat to rabbit welfare right now is the huge upsurge in unlicensed breeders appearing on classified ads on the internet. These breeders are not subject to any regulations, legislation or welfare checks and they provide no care advice to their customers. We are taking this problem very seriously.
