March Pet Shop wants Christmas homes for five rabbits after rescue last night
A RESCUED rabbit got a new home today after six were collected from Chatteris because the owners got bored with them.
Caroline Bates, of Parson Drove, came into The Pet Shop, in March, this morning to pick up some supplies for her dogs, cats and rabbit, but left with festively named “Holly”.
She said: “I will take her home and put her in front of my pets and will introduce them to their new friend. In the summer, I will let all my pets go out in the garden together to have some fun.
“My husband daren’t take me to a rescue home as I normally want to take something home with me.”
The Pet Shop manager Rob Phipps collected the six rabbits, all in good condition and aged between one and three, last night after the owner tried to rehome them, as RSPCA Block Fen Animal Centre was full. He said he would like to find new homes for the remaining five pets before Christmas.
Rob said: “They’re nice looking rabbits, I just can’t see them left on the street.
“The owner did the right thing and tried to get them rehomed but the other animal centres were full so we took them in.”

Shop assistant Debbie Kowbass said why they were the perfect pets: “They’re just so cute, absolutely gorgeous, and fluffy, and they can live in or outdoors.”
The rabbits come with cages, and the money received will go to Wood Green, with donations expected between �10-20.
