The Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund aims to improve the quality of life of pet rabbits in the UK
It really is that simple. You can help us to help us to achieve this goal by becoming a member, making a donation or by becoming a RWAF volunteer. Please contact the helpline 0870 046 5249 and start making a difference to rabbits today.
The Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund is run almost entirely by a small committee of volunteers, elected from the association membership. All rabbit lovers are welcome to join us, whatever their political persuasion! We believe in building bridges, not walls and we always put rabbit welfare first.
The Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund (RWAF) is a twin structure that helps rabbits.
The association can be thought of as a club for rabbit owners and anyone else interested in rabbit health and welfare which includes a subscription to our quarterly magazine, ‘Rabbiting On’ which is sent exclusively to members.
The education and welfare work is channelled via the fund, a registered charity (1085689). This arrangement means that donations to the fund are eligible for Gift Aid. This means we can reclaim the tax paid on donations which ultimately means more money to improve the lives of rabbits.

- encouraging the keeping of pet rabbits in conditions that meet the physical and behavioural needs of the species;
