Bunny-themed day for Matlock residents

Animal lovers in Matlock are being encouraged to attend a bunny-themed day.

The RSPCA animal shelter in Chesterfield is hosting an event with an Easter Bunny theme on Sunday, April 1.

Visitors to the event, which will at the centre in Spital Lane from 11am until 3pm, will have the chance to take part in a host of bunny-related fun and games.

Among the events lined up will be a chance to meet the centre’s current rabbits which will be in the exercise area for the day.

The centre currently has 11 rabbits including two babies, desperately in need of new homes, and it is hoped potential new owners can be found on the day.

Information on rabbits’ social needs can be found by visiting www.rspca.org.uk/allaboutanimals/pets/rabbits/company.
