The UK’s largest organisation for rabbit lovers!
Despite being one of the most popular pets, rabbits are amongst the most neglected, with a huge proportion living out their days confined to a hutch, alone and unable to display the behaviours they would show in the wild.
We aim to improve the health and welfare of domestic rabbits through a combination of campaigning, education and the most up to date advice. If you are a rabbit owner or thinking of becoming one then there is a huge amount of information for you on these pages.
