Animals In Distress (Torbay and Westcountry)

The Rabbit Enrichment Garden Appeal

Help us turn a patch of land that's brush and brambles into an area that radically improves the welfare of the rabbits. With your help, we'll create an outdoor area where the rabbits can dig and play and display their key natural behaviours: running, digging & burrowing, jumping, hiding and grazing

Location

Situation

Over 1 million rabbits in the UK are lacking mental stimulation and we absolutely don’t want those in our care to suffer from boredom or any associated health problems.

Solution

There will be tunnels, which will encourage the rabbits to be more active and provide a substitute burrow. There will be grass which is great for their teeth and digestive systems, and will also keep them busy. The rabbits will also enjoy digging pits made from planters filled with earth. Rabbits are naturally active animals and this new area will enable them to display their key natural behaviours: running, digging & burrowing, jumping, hiding, foraging and grazing.
