ITS RABBIT WEEK!Aug 17, 2012 09:35 BST
Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) was created as an annual event, where rabbit experts such as vets, pet retailers, welfare charities and manufacturers work together during a dedicated week to educate the pet owning public about proper rabbit care and welfare.
RAW is run by a number of partners who have been officially appointed because of their expertise in some or all aspects of rabbit welfare. The official RAW partners include Burgess Excel, Panacur Rabbit, RSPCA, PDSA, The Blue Cross, Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund (RWAF) and Wood Green The Animals Charity. This way pet owners can be sure that any rabbit information they see under the official RAW brand is sure to be correct and fully in line with the five rabbit welfare needs.
During the week thousands of vets across the UK offer FREE health clinics for local rabbits and their owners. It doesn't matter if your rabbits have never been to the vet before, it's never too late to get them health checked by the experts!
Thousands more retailers and rescue centres will be running fun and educational events to also spread the word about how to get the most out of pet rabbits by keeping them happy and healthy.
