Schools

We know how passionate schools, parents and pupils are about animal welfare. Each year many of you come together for RAW to help support and promoted the welfare needs of rabbits. RAW offers a great chance for schools to educate their students and the local community about rabbits and the five welfare needs. Please have a look at the resources below and find out more about how you can get involved in this year’s campaign and get maximum awareness in your local community for your part in Rabbit Awareness Week.

Companionship

Protect & Prevent

This year we are raising awareness around Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (RVHD2). RVHD2 is a new variant of RVHD1 and is often fatal.

Many rabbits in the UK are not vaccinated against this deadly disease and are therefore at risk. This year we are asking you to help us save the lives of rabbits across the UK by raising awareness in your local community. Request a RAW pack to get involved with RAW 2019.
