Sponsoring our rabbits is the best way to support SNORS long term. It provides us with a regular income to take care of the bunnies by paying for veterinary care, medications and special equipment. Special needs bunnies are costly so supporting us in this way gives the bunnies a secure future as well as helping SNORS make plans to help others.
Whilst we have many rabbits in the sanctuary we only offer sponsorship of two pairs. This is to reduce the amount of time we spend doing updates so we can use our time to care for the rabbits. Your sponsorship funds are used to care for all rabbits in our care, not just your chosen rabbits
Your regular donation will be used entirely for veterinary fees and in return you or your gift recipient will receive: –
- Three detailed updates by email per year from your chosen rabbit/s– including antics they’ve been up to and lots of lovely photographs
- A posted thank you card at Christmas
- Details of how your donation has been used*
*if required we can supply our financial spreadsheet
Pip & Leo’s Story
Pip arrived in 2016, she is an elderly rabbit approximately 11 years old. She came from a rescue with a large number of rabbits which could not be rehomed because of complex health needs. Pip is totally blind, has symptomatic E. Cuniculi, suffers from pasteurellosis and has significant scaring to her lungs. She also has had occasional bouts of GI stasis. She is still a happy girl and loves nothing more than snoozing fully stretched out in her heated pet bed and she just loves her food! She is currently being bonded with another EC bunny called Leo.
Leo came to us in 2017 after he developed severe EC symptoms. He is slowly recovering but will always be vulnerable to EC episodes and is left with a slight head tilt. The bonding process between these two is ongoing, although they clearly like each other Pip is an old girl and doesn’t always tolerate his advances.
Fred & Ginger’s Story
Fred arrived in 2016 from a local RSPCA branch. He was an older rabbit with significant dental issues and a chronic tear duct infection. He was initially bonded with ten year old sisters Smokey and Binky as he was such a sweet and gentle bunny and was incredible with them. When Binky passed away he comforted Smokey and they had many more happy months together until we finally also had to let Smokey go.
Soon after we were asked to help a bunny called Ginger from a different RSPCA branch. She had almost identical medical issues to Fred. She too had tear duct and dental issues and wouldn’t eat hay on arrival. Just as Smokey and Binky taught Fred to eat hay, Fred also helped Ginger. It’s amazing to see how rabbits pick up habits from each other, good and bad!
Both rabbits tear duct issues are now controlled but they need close monitoring and regular treatment. Fred has his incisors burred frequently as they are distorted and don’t line up correctly. They are incredibly happy together and such an appropriately named partnership, it‘s like it was meant to be.
