Six mistreated bunny rabbits were saved by the RSPCA after a welfare officer discovered them living in poor conditions at a house in Willesden.

The Middlesex North West RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) branch rescued seven of the adult rabbits on July 31, but unfortunately one of them, Lilly, had a rotten foot and had to be put down.

Animal Welfare Officer, Tracy Deamer said: “They were squashed inside filthy cat carry cases, and were being fed onions. One of the rabbits, who we named Lilly, was in a very poor way. Her back foot had completely rotted through to the bone. The suffering she must have gone through is unimaginable.”

Despite the RSPCA's best efforts Lilly didn’t make it, the other six bunnies are in a good condition, they just need to put on some weight.

These fluffy boys and girls are six of more than 43 rabbits at your local RSPCA who are desperate for somewhere to call home.

If you can help by adopting a friend for your current rabbit or by re homing a pair, please call the RSPCA on 020 8966 9688 or email info@rspcamiddlesex.org.uk.
