REHOMING AND RESCUE CENTRE.
The rabbit and guinea pig welfare was established in 1995 by Julie Fox, she started by just taking in a few
strays, and ended up rehoming over five hundred animals a
Julie had worked hard creating a healthy
environment and an excellent diet for the animals in her care,
she also has had a few run in's about her homing policies
some of which we mention later, we intend to continue with
these policies as they have been made with the well being
of the animals in mind.

Sadly Julie moved to southern Ireland and it would not
be practical for her to take the animals with her or indeed
all the equipment to restart the efforts over there.
Therefore we have taken on the responsibility of carrying
on her efforts. We started with just two Guinea pigs but quickly
ended up with a somewhat larger herd as you can see above.
We also have three rabbits that belong to us, and a large
selection of rodents for rehoming.
Please feel free to call us on any aspect on the ownership
of your rabbit or guinea pig we are more than happy to help.
Please ask for a care sheet if you are interested in rehoming

the number of bunnies rescued in 2000 throughout
the UK totals 33,171, an increase of almost 30%
compared to 1999. These are just the bunnies we know of
- many more are rehomed privately, abandoned or put to

WE NEVER home a rabbit to live in the same hutch (house)
as a guinea pig, the reason is that as a rabbit reaches
adult hood they become far to boisterous and start to
molest the smaller rodent attacking and harassing the
guinea pig and this can be very stressful. We feel it
is better to home an animal with a friend of the same
species, it also has serious diet downfalls rabbits req.
