Creating better tomorrows for all pet rabbits

The UK’s largest organisation for rabbit lovers!

Despite being one of the most popular pets, rabbits are amongst the most neglected, with a vast 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 domestic rabbits’ health and welfare through campaigning, education and the most up-to-date advice. If you are a rabbit owner or thinking of becoming one, there is a huge amount of information on these pages.

Our latest campaigns

Here at the Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund, we’ve been instrumental in changing perceptions about rabbits as pets.

Our work has helped more people understand that rabbits have complicated needs. They aren’t cheap, easy children’s pets that can be locked in a small hutch at the bottom of the garden. There’s still a long way to go, so we’ll keep making our voice heard to help domestic rabbits live the fulfilling lives they deserve.
