A CHARITY is appealing to animal lovers to help rehome rescue rabbits.
The Scottish SPCA in Aberdeenshire is looking for loving homes for the rescue rabbits in its care.
The animal welfare charity is encouraging rehoming during its annual Rabbit Awareness Week, which runs from August 10 to 16.
Graeme Innes, manager at the Scottish SPCA’s animal rescue and rehoming centre in Drumoak said: “Since our centre opened in summer 2011, we have rehomed over 350 rabbits.
“Many of the rabbits we take in have either been abandoned or given up by their owners.
“A large number of the rabbits we rescue are found straying and never re-claimed. Unfortunately very few are ever microchipped which is a shame as this is the easiest way of reuniting pets with their owners if they do run away.”
The centre has lots of rabbits looking for good permanent homes.
Graeme added: “Anyone thinking of taking on a rabbit is encouraged to get in touch once they have done their research and ensured they have the time, commitment and financial ability to provide these wonderful pets with a happy and healthy life.”
