Nibbles Rabbit Rescue Need YOU!

We have been waiting for a home for over a year
Where little lives matter...
During 2015 Nibbles Rodent and Rabbit Rescue helped over 200 small animals find safety, with over 180 of these animals being rabbits.
Rodents and rabbits generally don't engender the same level of passion compared to dogs and cats and as a result are generally very limited or totally excluded from more established rescue channels.
Despite rabbits being Britain's third favourite pet (after dogs and cats) they are also sadly the most neglected, often confined to inappropriate housing, fed an inappropriate diet and many of their welfare needs neglected.
Thousands of rodents and rabbits are bred, bought, and sold within the UK every year and with a large proportion of these purchased as pets for children who quickly loose interest in their care. This results in many becoming unwanted and handed in to rescue.
It is estimated that 67,000 rabbits pass through rescue centres each year within the UK and that on average there are 28,000 rabbits waiting adoption at any one time (figures from The Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund).
Nibbles is the first dedicated and specialist rescue catering for all species of rodents and rabbits in the West Wales area.
Nibbles HQ is located six miles from Cardigan, in between Eglwyswrw & Rhos Hill and we have a small number of bunnies located near Pembrey in Carmartheshire.
Nibbles provides re-homing services all over the UK providing transport and home-checks too.
They also offer a bunny bonding service which is vitally important if you are looking to get a companion rabbit for a single bunny you already have.
Nibbles is totally self-funded and they rely on donations, auctions, competitions and events to help meet the costs of running the centre.
In the vast majority of cases rabbits arrive needing neutering, vaccinating and worming before they can be made available for adoption. This costs the rescue between £95 and £115 depending on sex and weight. So you can imagine how important it is to get help and support from local and national sources.
If you would like to adopt a pair of rabbits (or have one bonded as a companion to a single bunny you already have) please contact Nibbles either on the email below, visit their website directly or give them a call!
