Many small animals are the subject of neglect. Rabbits and guinea pigs are amongst some of the most neglected animals that are kept as pets. Many end up at the bottom of gardens with little or no exercise and often suffer in winter conditions.
The Centre of Excellence will offer one-day seminars and longer animal husbandry courses for pet owners and children. The intention is to draw to the attention of all animal owners, that commitment and responsibility is key and must be fully understood. Courses will address the many issues that concern people about animal welfare.
