We have had a very busy few weeks. Easter is always a busy time for media and we have done three interviews for BBC radio, including BBC Radio 4, as well as having articles published in several magazines including the Mail on Sunday.
On Wednesday we worked with our friends from Burgess on the set of This Morning (thank you to Runaround for providing the binky box and tunnels) and it was a really great piece promoting rescue rabbits. We were behind the camera making sure the right message was given to the millions of viewers.
From there we went straight to Birmingham to the CEVA awards where we celebrated Richard Saunders being recognised as a Welfare Hero for the huge amount of work involved in getting the VHD2 vaccine in to the UK.
We then spent 2 days with Burgess at the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) talking to Vet Professionals and launching Rabbit Awareness Week. It’s great to work with other such dedicated people.
Just a few of the things we have been up to!
Emma Milne is a vet who has written several books about animals, their welfare and the ups and downs of life as a vet. ‘Are Rabbits the Right Pet for You – Can You Find the Facts?’, is the first book in the Pet Detective Series.
Emma has written these books for children and their parents to introduce some important aspects of owning rabbits. The reader is the detective, assigned to investigate and work out the needs of pets and the responsibilities of owners, in a fun and authoritative way.
“Often owners misunderstand pets and pet behaviour” says Ms Milne “It is therefore important that potential owners fully understand the needs of their pet and also the huge responsibility of having a pet brings”.
Emma is so passionate about supporting the welfare needs of animals she is donating 10% from the sale of every book ‘Are Rabbits the Right Pet for You?’ to the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund (RWAF). In addition, a further 10% from the sale of any book in the Pet Detective Series will go directly to the Animal Welfare Foundation.
