Things have been getting a little weird at the RSPCA Bryn Y Maen Animal Center recently….
The staff at the Upper Colwyn Bay Center — fans of the popular Netflix series Stranger Things — named a group of rabbits after the show.
Eleven, Steve, Robin, Suzie, Dustin, Lucas, Nancy, Murray, Billy, Jonathan, and Hopper are named after characters who have appeared in the drama, horror, and sci-fi TV series — all available for rebroadcasting.
Center Deputy Director Rachel Gibbs said, “We just love Stranger Things and have noticed that there are some bunny puns encountered on the show. For example, there’s a character named Hopper and Dustin is often referred to by his girlfriend Susie as DustyBun.”
She added, “We couldn’t resist naming some of our adorable rabbits after the characters of the show. We have a lot of rabbits in our care right now and would love to see them all go to loving homes soon, so please get in touch if you think you’d be the perfect person for them.”
Steve and Robin.
“Steve, Robin, Susie and Dustin will need to be rehomed as pairs, but others can be rehoused on their own but would benefit from being introduced to another rabbit.”
This week, the RSPCA marks Rabbit Awareness Week (June 27 – July 1).
Rachel added that this Rabbit Awareness Week is more important than ever to spread the message for people to do their research before bringing a rabbit.
She said: “These animals can live for a long time and can be expensive, they need much more than just a cage at the end of the garden – they need space, companionship and enrichment to lead a happy and healthy life.
“If you are confident in your ability to provide a suitable home, please adopt, and do not shop. Reputable rescue centers neuter, vaccinate, and microchip rabbits prior to rehoming, and provide owners with a wealth of information and ongoing support.”
The theme for this year’s Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW) is “Rabbit Room”.
It follows research showing that 38% of vets believe rabbit environment is the most neglected welfare issue, with over a quarter of rabbits in the UK kept in inadequate housing conditions and almost half of them living alone.
The RSPCA believes that typical rabbit huts do not provide the amount of space needed to help meet animal welfare requirements, and the charity encourages people to consider their housing guidelines to ensure they can provide safe, stimulating and appropriately sized accommodation.
