• Adopt a Rabbit

Rabbit adoption

Rabbits are one of the world’s most recognised species and have been a constant fixture of our childhood stories. Famous characters, such as Bugs Bunny, Peter Rabbit, and Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh, have provided us great entertainment, over the years.

Although rabbits are not native to Britain, having originally been brought over by the Normans, 1000 years ago, for food and fur, today, there is an estimated 36 million rabbits residing in the British countryside. With their brownish fur, big hind legs, long ears and fluffy tail, it is a common sight for most people to spot these cute little animals out grazing on the long grass and vegetation.

Today, rabbits are a vital part of the UK ecosystem. But populations have fallen by 60% since 1995.

How your adoption will help

At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we receive hundreds of orphaned kits, every year, all requiring around-the-clock care to make them strong enough for the wild. We will never turn away any wild animal in need, and our expert team will do all they can to give these baby rabbits a second chance in the wild.

Your adoption will help us to continue to look after the many rabbits that come through our doors, each year
