Members' rabbits Remembrance Roll 2017

The very worst part about having pets is losing them. Sometimes they have been our companions for just a short time, other times they have been our companions for many years. Whatever the situation, losing them can be very hard and often difficult to get over. This part of the website is dedicated to those rabbits who enriched our lives and have gone to live over Rainbow Bridge...

Rainbow Bridge (author unknown)

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal, any kind of animal, dies that has been especially close to someone , that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill or old are restored to good health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, someone who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

If you have lost a rabbit and need someone to talk to who will understand your grief, please remember that the RWAF provides a pet bereavement counselling service to members. So do please contact us if you feel you need to and we hope to help make these hard times a little easier.

"I don't know how I would have coped without your support line. No matter how many times I rang, often hysterical and incoherent, I was never made to feel a nuisance. Whilst family and friends could not find the time for me, the voice at the end of the help line never let me down."

Lily 10th January 2017


On Tuesday 10th January I had to say goodbye to my darling Lily G.

Lily was found wandering the street and taken to BARC. After a couple of failed bonding attempts, I was the lucky to adopt Lily in November 2015 where once settled, she became one of the friendliest cuddliest bunnies I've ever met.

My darling girl I only got to love you for 13 months but in that time you stole my heart repeatedly.

Frisky 5th January 2017


To our sweet bunny boy Frisky who crossed Rainbow Bridge 5th Jan 2017.

You were the perfect hus-bun to Jolie. When we first got you from the rescue we were going to change your name, but we quickly learned why they named you Frisky!

You didn't have the best start in life and we wanted to give you the best. You made us all so happy for ten years, each day starting with your excitement at getting a big bowl of greens. There is a big bunny gap in all our lives now.

Sleep tight precious boy, we're looking after Jolie for you until the day when you meet her to binky off together. Louise, Glyn and Jolie xxx
