Burgess Pet Care has launched a brand new national online census, The Great British Rabbit Census, to uncover the nation’s rabbit habits.
The family-owned Pet Care brand hopes that their new survey will mobilise more rabbit owners in the UK than ever before, with questions focusing mainly around the five welfare needs of rabbits.
Burgess Pet Care demonstrates their commitment to the welfare of rabbits through their annual delivery of Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW), which highlights important welfare issues and encourages responsible ownership year on year.
The Great Rabbit Census is running for the next eight weeks. Each entrant will receive a £2 discount on Burgess Excel products purchased from the website, as well as being in with the chance to win a Burgess Pet Care Rabbit Hamper and Runaround Connection Kit.
Alex Thorne of Burgess Pet Care, explains:
“We know from RAW every year that there are a lot of rabbit owners out there who are absolutely devoted to their pets – you can see that from Twitter alone! Unfortunately, rabbits remain one of the most misunderstood animals in the UK, with many rabbit owners failing to understand the correct nutritional needs of their rabbits.
“We’re looking to find out as much about rabbits and their owners in the UK as possible to address these key issues.”
The Great British Rabbit Census only takes a short time to complete but covers everything from the rabbit’s diet to behaviours to how their names were chosen. All entrants will also receive a copy of the finalised survey report.
“This is the perfect day to launch the census, as rabbit owners all over the world will be joined in their celebration of these adorable family pets. We’re calling on rabbit owners all over the UK to help us throw the spotlight on Britain’s bunnies and understand them better than ever before.”
