Rabbit Accommodation Information

A hutch is not enough, we check all potential homes before we rehome our rescue bunnies and are always happy to advise on the best possible housing for your bunnies. This video helps to explain what rabbits need and why. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1Rg7P8lBT

We believe animals deserve compassion, respect and consideration. That prevention of unwanted animals through the promotion of neutering and education, and the humane control of feral colonies is required, and no healthy animal should be destroyed if a responsible home cannot be found.

Visiting is strictly by appointment to protect the health and welfare of the animals in our care, please do not visit unless by prior appointment.


We really appreciate any donations we receive and recent thanks for our gifts off of the Amazon Wishlist. You can view our wishlist here:

Our beloved OUT AND ABOUTER REPORTER for The Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre GIGGLES has gone to heaven on 19/11/15.
It was very sudden and she will be sadly missed by all of us that loved her.
Her mate Claire, has found a little envelope tucked away in her hideaway with the following little note inside.
Hello, it’s me Giggles. YOUR OUT AND ABOUTER REPORTER FOR THE CRRC.  If you are reading this now, you will know that this is my last report. I have loved my special job as reporter and thank you all for listening to me ranting on about finding homes for our many unwanted Cats, rabbits and guinea pigs and giving you my view on things
Over the past few months I have been training HULKY BEAR to be our new Out and Abouter Reporter for the Centre, so now he will be telling you all the latest news and gossip (plenty of that)!!. Hulky Bear has only three legs, which doesn’t stop him from charging around like a two year old sometimes, he is quite a chatter box and I’m sure he will be telling you some of the funny stories that he has the kittens listening to. (I think they actually believe him.)  I did have to have a few stern words with him, so he soon took notice!!
Christopher Timothy was very privileged to meet me, when he came to The Centre on the Summer Fayre and it was nice to discuss medical problems with him (being a TV vet!!)
Hulky Bear will carry on my work which is a big, big undertaking, so please give him your support. I also hope you will carry on sending postcards from your holidays, now to HULKY and he will get them pinned up in the hallway. Thank you to all my lovely staff for taking care of me and loving me.  My special thanks to my Claire for always being there for me. Please don’t be sad (or maybe just a little bit).  I have had a fantastic time at the CRRC  and now it’s time for me to do my REPORTING in another place .


My love to you all GIGGLES XXXX
