Since it was founded in 1969, Wadars animal rescue has been known for its work with both wildlife and domestic animals, and whilst for most people that means dogs and cats, over the years the charity has also found forever homes for hundreds of rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small ‘fluffies’.
Among them have been a number of rabbits which have had special needs and therefore require homes where they can live as indoor bunnies. One such little girl is Snowy, who is currently with Wadars looking for a new home.
Snowy who appears to be deaf and has an involuntary head wobble, probably caused by an infection in the womb or at birth, doesn’t have the ‘flight’ instinct which is why she needs to live indoors where she will be safe. She is otherwise a very healthy and happy 18-month-old girl.
Wadars is looking for an indoor home for Snowy, where she can live with her own cuddly bunny.
The charity also has a number of other rabbits looking for homes, so if you are interested in finding out more about adopting Snowy or another of the bunnies, please call Wadars on 01903 247111.
Do your bit to support 50 years of caring for animals by taking part in Walk for Wadars this May
It costs Wadars more than £400,000 a year to fund the various services that it provides in the local community and as the charity receives no statutory income, it relies on the generosity of local people to keep it afloat.
During its 50th birthday year, Wadars is hoping that its annual Walk for Wadars event will be bigger and better than ever and raise thousands of pounds towards its work.
The event takes place on Sunday 12th May and is a 5-mile sponsored walk which starts at Goring Gap Green near the Sea Lane Café and goes right along the prom to Worthing Pier and back. The route is flat and is suitable for young and old alike. Walk for Wadars is free to enter but all participants are asked to raise sponsorship for the charity, and organisers hope that this year money raised through the event will top the £10,000 mark.
Participants don’t need to have a dog to take part, but well behaved two and four legged friends are all welcome to enter!
Anyone interested in taking part will need to fill out an entry form, and can do so either by visiting the charity’s website (www.wadars.co.uk) or calling 01903 247111 and asking for a form to be emailed or posted to them.
