Thank you for coming to Wythall Animal Sanctuary website
We hope you will spend some time looking at our site. If there is any animal you feel you could rehome please CALL us first to discuss your interest. Thank you for visiting.
Chairman of the Trustee Directors.
Here at Wythall Animal Sanctuary we re-home not only dogs and cats but also rabbits,guinea pigs, budgies, cockatiels, ferrets, gerbils, hamsters and occasionally horses and ponies. We also take in and care for wildlife but if the wildlife is in need of specific care we will transfer these to a specialist Wildlife Centre on your behalf.
February is national ADOPT A BUNNY month. At the Sanctuary we have a special building HAZEL HOUSE purpose built in 2002 to house all our rescued rabbits and guinea pigs. The Sanctuary ALWAYS has rescued rabbits and guinea pigs looking for loving new homes. Check out our current bunnies looking for love on our web site http:/wythallanimalsanctuary.org.uk/animal/rabbit/
Some people are put off from adopting a rabbit because they have been told that they do not make good pets but here is a link to a interesting site which explodes some of those myths and helps to show just what good pets rabbits can be and what they need to keep them happy and healthy http://www.rabbit.org/adopt-a-rabbit-month/MythFlyer2003.pdf
It is estimated that there are over 30.000 rabbits in rescue centres all over the UK. If you do not live locally to us try this site Rabbit Rehome as they try to place rabbits in homes from all over the country and are sure to know of a bunny in need in your area. http://www.rabbitrehome.org.uk/about.asp
Please remember A HUTCH IS NOT ENOUGH if you adopt a rabbit you must be prepared to give your new friend space, time and attention. Rabbits are gregarious creatures and love the company of other rabbits. Please do not buy a rabbit as a pet for your child. Sadly most children have a short attention span when it comes to caring for their pets and this is why so many rabbits end up in rescue centres in the first place. If you are going to adopt a rabbit into your family then a adult MUST be prepared to take overall responsibility for the care and welfare of the rabbit. Please remember that as with any pet a rabbit will need routine grooming, veterinary checks,, vaccinations and neutering.
If you would like to help rescued rabbits but do not have the time or space to commit to giving one a loving home why not consider sponsoring our rabbit house? Hazel House is on our Sponsorship Scheme, for a yearly payment of just £15 you can sponsor Hazel House for that you will receive a certificate, key ring and twice yearly updates about the comings and goings of Hazel House as well as our bi annual Sanctuary newsletter. http://wythallanimalsanctuary.org.uk/animal/?status=resident-sponsored
