A woman who rescued two rabbits says they "gave her her life back" after she regained the use of her paralysed hands after caring for them.
Marley-Belle Quaid from Guildford rehomed Woodstock and Wilfred who were rescued by the RSPCA.
Marley-Belle was confined to a wheelchair and unable to move her hands after a series of painful operations but had movement back in her wrists after six months.
Despite attempting physiotherapy, nothing had worked for the 32 year old.
The rabbits now have their own bedroom and a room filled with play furniture, such as hides, tunnels to simulate warrens, jumps and a hay pit, to keep them stimulated and happy.
Blackley pleaded guilty to two charges of failing to provide the animals with a suitable environment - they had limited access to food and water - and a suitable diet. She was banned from keeping rabbits for five years.
Charlene Blackley, who's 29, was given a rabbit by the boyfriend but when the relationship ended and her pet ran away she started getting more of them. The RSPCA were called to a house in Poole, Dorset, where they found more than 80 kept in cramped conditions.
Two rabbits have been dumped in a shopping carrier at an RSPCA centre.
The two male rabbits, one black and one brown, were underweight and one appeared to have skin problems. They are believed to be about six months old.
The receptionist at Blackberry Farm in Aylesbury says a young man driving a flat-bed pickup truck turned up carrying the rabbits in a supermarket shopping basket.
He said his friend no longer wanted them and when he was told there was no room for them he left.
However, a short time later one of the centre’s volunteer dog walkers came in saying she had found the carrier at the bottom of the drive with one rabbit in it and the other one running loose.
The most unusual rescue carried out by East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service for some time. A bunny, stuck in a welly boot. Will they get him out?
