The rabbit group has had a stop start existence, being held up by the Welsh and English attempts to produce office Codes of practice, which took years. Their own attempts to have a strategy document faltered when new evidence on welfare became available from Bristol University which it was felt should be incorporated.

The latest development is that the key groups among the welfare societies and Pet Industry Federation have worked on a ‘Vision for rabbit welfare’.

The RWAF have worked incredibly hard over years on this.

The Vision can be found here www.bristol.ac.uk/vision
