Gnaw place like home.

FAMILIES who could offer a rabbit a home are being urged to contact the RSPCA Great Ayton Animal Centre.

The centre is full and can't take in any more rabbits until new owners are found.

Rebecca Williams, deputy manager, said: "Rabbits are always very difficult to re-home but we're struggling like mad at the moment.

"We don't have a huge number as our small animal unit is currently being re-built, but those in our care have been with us for a long time."

All the rabbits at the Great Ayton centre were picked up as strays by RSPCA field staff.

None were microchipped so it was impossible to re-unite them with their owners.

Rebecca added: "We hope anyone who is considering a rabbit as a pet will come here first."

* RSPCA Great Ayton is open to the public between 11am and 3.30pm every day except Wednesday.

Anyone who is interested should call in or ring the centre on 0300 1230743.
