Freedom from discomfort

All rabbits should live in a suitable environment. A rabbit’s home affects how the rabbit feels, thinks and behaves. Providing your rabbits with shelter and a comfortable resting area is one way you can make sure that your rabbit stays healthy and happy.

Did you know that there is a special law protecting animals?

This law is called the Animal Welfare Act. The Animal Welfare Act says that your animal has five groups of welfare needs. These are five groups of things that animals need to be healthy and happy. These five welfare groups are called the Five Freedoms.

Under the Animal Welfare Act all animal guardians (owners) need to provide all these things for their animals. One of these Freedoms is: Freedom from Discomfort. In this section you will learn about this freedom and how you can make sure your rabbits have the environment and shelter they need to be free from discomfort.
