Hop to adopt bun­nies

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

THREE lit­tle bun­nies are all that re­main of Com­mu­nity News and RSPCA WA’s 12 Strays of Christ­mas cam­paign.

The cam­paign, which ran in Com­mu­nity news­pa­pers across Perth, urged read­ers to adopt one of 12 fea­tured pets from the char­ity.

Close to 300 aban­doned, abused and ne­glected an­i­mals were ex­pected to be in the care of RSPCA WA over the fes­tive sea­son.

And while nine of our fea­tured ‘strays’ found a lov­ing home, three rab­bits – Martin, Mau­reen and Nigel – are still wait­ing to find a fam­ily. The three rab­bits are all avail­able from the RSPCA WA adop­tion cen­tre in Malaga. Call the adop­tions team on 9209 9323 or just drop in to the shel­ter to meet them.

Martin is a four-month-old rab­bit who, to­gether with his mum Mau­reen, is look­ing for a new home where they can stay to­gether.

Martin’s favourite things in life in­clude the sun, pats, cud­dles and play­ing in hay.

Mau­reen is lit­ter trained and loves sleep­ing next to you, so life as an in­door bunny would make her happy.

Nigel is a 16-month-old male rab­bit. He has a lovely na­ture and en­joys a good pat

and a scratch. He seeks the sim­ple things in life, like fresh ve­g­ies, pel­lets and hay.

RSPCA WA ex­ec­u­tive manager of com­mu­nity en­gage­ment Ma­ree Daniels said the hol­i­day pe­riod could be an ideal time to take on a pet.

“With many peo­ple hav­ing more time off work, this pro­vides a great op­por­tu­nity to help a new pet set­tle in, spend­ing more time with them and al­low­ing you to bond,” she said.
