TEDDINGTON VET'S 10 RABBIT VACCINATIONS DONATION
A special thanks goes out to Teddington Vets (www.vet4life.co.uk), who have very kindly chosen Bobtails Rabbit & Guinea Pig Rescue to donate 10 rabbit vaccinations to as part of their involvement in Rabbit Awareness Week 2013. It is our policy to make sure that all of our rabbits are vaccinated as a matter of course. This has to be paid out of donations received from the public, so the generosity of Teddington Vets really is greatly appreciated.

OPEN DAY 2012 DONATION THANK YOU'S
Thank you to everyone who donated prizes for our 2012 open day on 13th May.
We must thank the person responsible for getting this whole site up and running:-
Tamsin from 'TamDesign' (www.tamdesign.co.uk) has designed and set up this website for us. As you can see, it is a very clear and easy site to navigate and from the feedback that we have recieved, you think so too. A really big thank you goes out to Tam from all of us here at Bobtails (including the animals) and you can click on the link to her site to see what else she has done, who knows.......she may be able to help you too.
David More BV MQS, MRCVS and the team at 'The Corner Veterinary Clinic' (www.thecornervet.co.uk) without whose support, knowledge and compassion we could not operate at the level we do. David is always ready to help us with the most difficult cases, and will never give up if there is any hope. We trust his advice and are so grateful he and his team are there for us.
Bradley and Laura, our children, who have helped with the building up of Bobtails from the first vision to the reality it is today. From digging foundations, chopping trees, mixing concrete and filling goodness knows how many skips, to feeding, cleaning, handling, loving and caring for the animals and also crying with us over ones we could not save. Thank you for being there when we need you.
Also our thanks to our helpers, those who come and do the messy jobs like cleaning, bathing and grooming.
OUR FOSTER CARERS
Ann and Kim Fairhall, guinea pig fosterers. Wonderful at calming and bringing around nervous or badly treated piggies, they come back to Bobtails happy and confident little creatures.
THE HOME CHECKERS
Thanks to all the people that carry out home checks on our behalf. The time it would take to travel all over the South of England home checking would mean we had time for nothing else!
