RWAF releases rabbit-friendly practice list
Charity makes list available to public after high demand

The decision has been made by the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund (RWAF) to make its rabbit-friendly vets list available to the general public.

Heavy demand from the general public via RWAF's helpline and online enquiry service has pushed the charity to publicise its list, which comprises rabbit-friendly practices across the UK.

The list was compiled by the association a few yeas ago, with relevant practices applying for inclusion, in order to point rabbit owners in the right direction.

RWAF is keen to see new practices added to the list and to ensure it is as up-to-date as possible. The publication will increase exposure for rabbit-friendly vets, which the RWAF hopes will enable participating practices to receive more long term rabbit-owning clients.

A spokesman for RWAF explained: "Because enquiries about rabbit-friendly vets come from such a range of locations in the UK, the RWAF needs to make the list as comprehensive as possible, so we are looking for practices who provide a good standard of rabbit care to be included."

To apply for inclusion, practices must be members of the RWA. The application includes a series of survey questions and practice membership costs £45 a year (tax deductible).
