- A Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) rescue mission yielded 47 Flemish giant rabbits from cramped and filthy conditions.
- The biggest rabbit in the group was almost like a medium-sized dog.
- They just had minor health issues and after they settle, they will be put up for adoption.
Flemish giant rabbits live up to their name. They are huge and are almost as big as medium-sized dogs and so when the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) got a call to rescue rabbits, they could not believe their eyes.
According to the RSPCA, the 47 rescued rabbits were confined in a small space not ideal for their size. In a press release, RSPCA inspector Trevor Walker said, “These poor rabbits were living in cramped and dirty conditions which would have been very unpleasant for them, especially in the heat.
He added, “Luckily a vet found they are all in good condition — one is on medication for weepy eyes and a wound on the back of his neck.”
Healthwise, the rabbits only had mild issues. They just need to settle in, decompress, take time to recover before they are up for adoption.
They are not what a lot of people expect rabbits to be but with proper care and reading up on what they need, they can make good companions. They are cuddly giants that deserve love and attention. They need someone or families to belong to.
Walker said, “We hope they will find loving homes. They will make good companion animals as they have a nice temperament.”
