This year’s Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW), a week dedicated to educating the pet owning public about rabbits, will begin on 15 September.
Behind dogs and cats, rabbits are the UK’s third most popular pet. Despite this there are still myths and misconceptions about how best to care for rabbits.
RAW was created to allow rabbit experts such as vets, pet retailers, welfare charities and manufacturers to work together to inform and educate people about proper rabbit care and welfare during a dedicated week.
During the week thousands of vets across the UK offer free health clinics for local rabbits and their owners. In addition many retailers and rescue centres will run fun and educational events to spread the word about how to get the most out of pet rabbits by keeping them happy and healthy.
