One Voice for Animals Uk Campaigns


A better life for Rabbits and Rodents campaign and the launch of Small Pet Rodent Awareness Week (SPRAW)

In the first half of 2021, One Voice for Animals UK (OVFAUK), in collaboration with Rabbit Welfare & Rescue organisations from across the UK, led a campaign seeking to improve the lives of Rabbits & Rodents.  These treasured companions often live lonely lives in cramped conditions because our pet shops & retailers don't always sell suitable accommodation or provide the correct advice. 


In Summer 2021 we were recognised for our campaigning work and invited to join the the All Party Group for Animal Welfare (APGAW).

Just after we became members, APGAW invited us to the launch of the Rabbit Welfare Code of Practice - a welcome step forward in rabbit care.

Small Pet Rodent Awareness Week

Recognising a knowledge gap, OVFAUK in collaboration with Small Pet Rodent specialists, set about to launch the first ever awareness

week devoted to our smaller rodent companions

  • Hamsters

  • Gerbils

  • Rats

  • Mice

  • Chinchillas.

  • Degus

The week will run from 20th to 26th September on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter followed by the launch of the Small Pet rodent awareness week website - a one stop shop for everything you need to care for your rodent.
