I'd like to nominate Honnob & Fidget from Rabbit Residence Rescue please.
This pair of rabbits have been with us for over 8 years and no one has offered them a forever home.

Thank you for entering this lovely pair from the Rabbit Residence, such a shame that no one has adopted them yet :(

The Pledge a Pound Team have now chosen the winner of the Rescue Rabbit/Guinea Pig of the month for June and it is Flash from Marias Animal Shelter see his story below.

Flash wins a £20.00 supermarket gift card for the Rescue to buy him and the other rabbits and guinea pigs some goodies.

Flash came into the shelter at the beginning of the year with his brother Kye. Kye was very quiet and did not want to move much, so he was taken to our vets where we were told he had hydronephrosis. Sadly Kye had to be put to sleep.
Another one of our male pairs (Stanley) also died, so we decided to try and bond the 2 remaining guineas, which was a success. Only about two weeks after the bonding did we notice that Flash had lumps on the back of his legs. The vets have diagnosed him with lymphoma. The vets said that this sort of cancer is extremely rare in guinea pigs. Flash now has to have steroids for the remainder of his life. I hope he will continue to be with us for a long time. The vets could not give an estimate time, as they said it varies on every individual. :(

Thank you very much for choosing Flash. Bless him, we had to have him put to sleep a couple of weeks ago as he rapidly went downhill. I am so pleased that we were able to give him a few weeks of love before he passed.Xx

I'm so sorry to hear about Flash :( but as you say it's good he had a lot of love in his final few weeks xx I'm sure the other bunnies and piggies will enjoy their treats in Flash's memory xx

I'd like to nominate Scully. She's spent her whole life (6 years) in rescue along with her brother Mulder.
They currently live in a rabbitopia which they both live as they're small agile rabbits who appreciate a lot of enrichment, they also live fresh grass and forage as a special treat along with parsley.
Although shy with people they don't know both are happy to be hand fed and receive head strokes but they do run and hide from strangers which means they get overlooked :(
Scully is such a pretty and sweet girl and builds a strong bond with the people she trusts, she enjoys a nose rub
They are great rabbits who've perfected begging for treats and are amazing fun to watch.
