It's time to step up our campaign towards the introduction of Rabbit Specific Welfare Laws in Scotland & the UK as a whole & take our message out onto the streets.

Rabbits are the 3rd most popular pet in the UK but also the MOST neglected.

We at Rabbits Require Rights (Scotland) are lobbying the Scottish Parliament to introduce (pet) Rabbit Specific Welfare Laws & have been fortunate enough to secure a place in the Cross Party Group on Animal Welfare at the Parliament, where we will be a much needed voice for our rabbits.

Current laws fail our domestic friends - Animal Welfare Act 2006, Pet Animals Act 1951 & Pet Shop Licence Regulations are outdated & unworkable when it comes to the welfare needs of our buns. This combined with an overall poor understanding & perception of these misunderstood animals needs, neglect of these 'cute & cuddly' pets is at an all time high & the situation is becoming increasingly urgent as our rescues struggle to cope with both the financial & emotional burden of taking care of these, all to often, disposable pets.

This combined with poor care advice, inadequate housing, dietary products and so on, our pet shops have a lot to answer for when it comes to stressing the importance of proper care of these complex animals.

There are so many other issues that need addressing: proper veterinary care, not all vets have a good up to date working knowledge when it comes to rabbit health.
Regulation & Licencing of both commercial & Hobby Breeders.
Licencing of Rescue Centres; currently anyone can set up an 'animal rescue' (poor standards in one often has a negative effect on the good work done by others).
Licencing of Bunny Boarding establishments.
and so on....

In order to do this we are asking for financial help, all we ask if you could give as little or as much as you can to help in our fight towards better rights for rabbits.

We want to take our message out to the streets & to do this we need a few start up campaign tools, such as Banners, help with printing costs for posters, leaflets, stickers etc. & to purchase some starter merchandise T-shirts, bags & so on... Once we have the finance to get these 'starter items' it will then allow us to become self funded. Unfortunately all these items cost money which we just don't have so are looking for your kind support to allow us to take the message out into the public domain where it's needed most.
Any money either leftover or indeed any future profit that we make will be donated to our local rescue Buddies Bunny Rescue here in Midlothian.

We thank you for your help. For the buns!! <3

And don't forget to add your signature to our petition & that of Camp Nibble, both equally important in the fight towards better Rights For Rabbits! ;)
