Hi, I’m Jai, founder of Worcestershire rabbit rescue and friends. The rescue started itself 6 years ago, when I ‘accidentally’ came home with 11 ex breeding bunnies. In April 2019 my family and the rescue moved from Malvern to Tewkesbury, where we hope to better the bunny accommodation ( as well as our own!! ) I’ve been lucky enough to give up work when my youngest daughter was born 2 yrs ago, and now run the rescue full time, at least until the littlest starts school. My partner, Rich works enough hours for both of us! So I can be here for the bunnies. I’m also super grateful for the wonderful team of volunteers who give up evenings, weekends and possibly a little bit of their sanity, to help me keep all the animals happy, clean, cared for and to those that foster, do vet runs and keep the website updated for me! We’re also lucky enough to have wonderful supporters that help out financially to ensure we can continue our work. Running the rescue is truly a team effort!!

Hi my name is Claire and I have been volunteering for a little over a year now I started in August 2019, I started off with no rabbits and now I have 3 beautiful rescue buns. My love for animals started from a young age I had hamsters growing up and then as a family we had Guinea pigs and rabbits , as soon as I moved out and felt I could offer the love and attention to a pet of my own I got my first dog Trinity now 13 and going strong (with a few medical conditions), I have currently got 3 adorable dogs, 3 rabbits ( hopefully adding a 4th soon) 2 Tortoises a snake and 7 Tarantulas, I also foster Guniea pigs for the rescue you can follow my account on Instagram @Piggie_Foster_Mum. I feed all the rabbits and Guinea pigs on a forage diet and have been lucky enough to have extra time this year to explore the local area and find some new forage areas and dry some out to feed over winter!
Hi I am Tegan and I started volunteering at the end of 2019. I was new to the area and missed my animals from home so Claire (another volunteer) suggested I come with her one day to the rescue. I started helping out between work, learned more about rabbits and a few months ago started fostering rabbits. One pair came and went to their happy forever home. The second pair, Dora and Percy, I just couldn't let leave. So I am now a bun mum of two thanks to the rescue. You can check out their latest antics @officiallyabunmum Xx
With Polo, former resident
Hi, I'm Bev and I've been with the rescue since July 2019. I've been signed off from work for some time and needed something to stay occupied and working with the bunnies has been incredibly therapeutic for me. I've always had a strong affinity for animals and my time at the rescue has brought out a knack for connecting with our more difficult residents. Polo in particular was found as a stray so was extremely territorial and defensive around people, making him difficult to care for at the rescue. I decided no bunny was going to out-stubborn me and ended up bonding with him enough for weekly grooming sessions and short cuddles. I was gutted when he left us for his forever home, but it was an incredible experience to work on socialising him and knowing I'd made a difference.
Hi, I’m Emily and I’ve been volunteering at the rescue since March 2018! I’ve owned and loved rabbits for most of my life and so I joined the rescue to help out these wonderful animals. Since November 2018 I’ve fostered many rescue buns and have loved seeing them find their future homes. I’ve just finished my A-Levels and in September I’m off to vet school to fulfil my dream of being a vet!

Hello :) We are Cait and Max, and we first got involved with the rescue in September 2018 when we enquired about adopting bunnies when we moved into our home together. Since then the rescue has not been able to get rid of us, and we love to come and help out with the jobs that need doing. We now have 4 rabbits, 2 hamsters and a cat of our own. We also foster for the rescue, giving bunnies and other little souls somewhere to stay whilst they wait for their forever home. We love being part of the rescue :) x
