The GSPCA is asking all rabbits to take great care as Rabbit Haemorraghic Viral Disease (RHVD2) variant 2 has been discovered here in Guernsey.

The fatal disease is a huge risk to unvaccinated rabbits and especially to those in outside enclosures.

The GSPCA has been in close communication with local vets and the States Vet after concerns of a possible disease affecting rabbits from around Guernsey over recent weeks.

We love to hear from animals that have been adopted from the GSPCA.

Yesterday we received this wonderful message from the owners of two rabbits adopted from the GSPCA last year:

We just wanted to send you an update of two bunnies we adopted in October. They have been re named Coco & Fudge (aka Madonna & Roulenska), we love them so very much and think they are very happy with us too! Lexi & Carrie xx

At the GSPCA we have nearly a dozen rabbits in need of homes some of which were at the Shelter when these two were in our care.

This morning a baby bunny has been rescued with a broken leg.

The young animal was found near Genats Estate in Castel and has just been to the vets to be seen what can be done to help this poor defenceless young rabbit.

GSPCA Ambulance Volunteer Warden Andrew Green rushed the injured bunny to the vets and thankfully despite his injury he has received initial treatment and has received treatments including pain relief.

The GSPCA are appealing for the owner to please call us on 257261 as soon as possible.

Today staff at the GSPCA were overjoyed to wave off Doretta the longest stay rabbit to her new home.

Doretta was brought into the GSPCA for rehomng on the 5th December 2012, which means she has been in need of a loving home for nearly 2 years.

Doretta has seen many rabbits come and go with nearly 200 passing through the Shelter during her time, but today it was her turn.

Doretta has lived out in a pen over looking our pond on Bunny Hop Hill at the GSPCA and has had a lovely time.


Rabbit Awareness Week - 5 rabbits in need of a home at the GSPCA in Guernsey & 4 babies rescued now being hand reared

Submitted by Steve on 16:44, 14th May, 2014 | 0

At the GSPCA we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome between 100 and 200 rabbits every year.

Each May Rabbit Awareness Week takes place and rescues highlight the rabbits in their care, those needed homes and good practice caring for rabbits.

Often called the forgotten pet the GSPCA are often called out to rabbits in need that may have dirty cages, no fresh food and very little to do.

Rabbits are highly social animals and really need company, but it is very important to neuter and vaccinate them at the same time.
