PAWS for thought – do you recognise these stray rabbits?
The duo were found in Bishopbriggs and Lenzie recently and Kirkintilloch-based Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care (FBRC) is keen to reunite them with their owners.
‘Rizzo’ – a small white and grey rabbit – was found in the Bishopbriggs area in early July. The lady who found the rabbit kept her for a few days and made enquiries with local neighbours to try to find the owner, but to no avail.
‘Binky’ was found in Lenzie on July 13 and handed to FBRC the following day after local enquiries failed to find the owner.
She is a medium-sized grey rabbit who is very interested in attention and seems likely to have been cared for well.
Volunteers suspect Binky is someone’s much-loved pet.
David Bell, of FBRC, said: “It is difficult to tell how long they may have been stray for.
“In most cases domestic rabbits will not survive long in the wild, so we suspect both rabbits may have become stray only a few days before they were found.
“If anyone believes them to be their pet, or may have some information that could identify the original owners, they should contact us on 0141 280 3272 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Rabbits are the most abandoned, neglected and ill-treated pet in the UK. Domestic rabbits do not have the ability to survive in the wild, and owners should never “set them free”.
If anyone has a genuine reason for needing to rehome their pet they should get in touch with the charity for help and support.
