Welcome to Pipkin Rabbit Rescue, an independently run rabbit rescue
in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.
I started to take in rabbits in 2006. So many are abandoned by their
original owners. Most of the rabbits I have taken in have been picked
up as strays, a few have come in as their original owners could no
longer look after them, but have been caring enough to secure their
When I first admit a rabbit to the rescue I take him/her to our vet
for a check up and they receive whatever medical treatment they need -
recently that has included dental work, treatment for bladder problems
and treatment for a broken leg. When the rabbit is fit and well again
(and has been neutered if male) they are then either rehomed or
integrated into our "warren"! We have a large run that
houses some of the bunnies who have needed extended medical treatment
and will therefore stay with us. We do not put any healthy
rabbits to sleep.
We fund the rescue by selling second hand books on Amazon.co.uk,
attending charity fairs with items to sell and by selling a variety of
carefully made hand-crafted items on this website. Some of the bunnies
we have helped are featured on here, please have a browse and come
back often to see our updates!
Hope you enjoy!
COOKIE is an adorable dwarf lop. He was picked up as a stray so
we don't know how old he is, but I would estimate he is about 1
year old. When he was found he had to have a dental under general
anaesthetic due to spurs on his back teeth, so it is quite
probable that he will need dental treatment throughout his life.
