Too many rabbits in the world………..

19 Jul 2015

Whilst ever there are unwanted animals in rescue centres there will never be any such thing as ‘responsible’ breeders.  Breeders make money and then rescue centres pick up the pieces and put things right. 13 rabbits came in yesterday from someone who had been breeding from them.  All need neutering and all need vaccinating before […]

Boris’s Birthday

7 Years ago to day, 5 July 2008, a handsome South Devonshire Bull was born. The bull was born blind and not wanted by the farmer, that’s when Boris was rescued by us. We have never looked back and he is loved by all, he is such a sociable, loving, cuddly 1,500 Kg bear. People say […]
