Sale-based animal charity, the Society for Abandoned Animals, is inviting pet owners and animal lovers to its rabbit care day on Sunday, March 13.

Vets and volunteers will be on hand at the event, which runs between 12pm and 4pm, to offer free rabbit health checks and advice, as well as low-cost vaccinations and microchipping. Pet owners only need to call the sanctuary to book their slot.

There will also be rabbit care advice stalls and tours to meet the animals for anybody looking for some handy hints and tips on how to look after rabbits, or those looking to adopt a loveable bunny.

Rachel Sheldon, trustee for the Society for Abandoned Animals, said: “Our rabbit care days are always so well attended and it’s great to see the community of Sale taking their responsibility of caring for their pets so seriously.

“We always love meeting new animals and helping with health check-up, as well as providing advice for those who thinking about getting a rabbit.”

The animal charity is also asking families and animal lovers everywhere to remember that, while a fluffy bunny may seem like the perfect Easter present, they must look past the initial excitement and realise the responsibility of taking on and caring for a rabbit.

Rachel added: “The Rabbit Welfare Association estimates there to be 67,000 rabbits in rescues throughout the UK.

“Buying a rabbit is a big commitment, and with that comes a responsibility of caring for, loving and feeding it for the rest of its life.”


Please phone the office on 0161 973 5318 to book an appointment for the health checks, vaccinations and microchipping. Please ensure rabbits are in a secure container. Admission is just £1 for adults, and 50p for children.
