Last chance to have your say in the Great British

Small Animal survey!

Over 6,000 owners have already shared their views on pets’ wellbeing

For immediate release – 23 November 2023 - Yorkshire, UK: With less than a week to go before the closure of a UK-wide survey which will delve into the wellbeing of the nation’s small pets, organisers Burgess Pet Care are calling on the nation’s pet lovers to have their say.

The Great British Small Animal Census focuses on small animals’ five welfare needs - companionship, health, environment, diet, and behaviour. It intends to shine a light on any areas of concern relating to small animals’ wellbeing, and where owners may need more information and support.

Nicole Fallon, Marketing Manager at Burgess Pet Care, who are organisers of the UK’s leading welfare campaigns Rabbit Awareness Week and Guinea Pig Awareness Week, said: -

“We are absolutely delighted with the response we’ve had so far, with over 6,000 owners having completed our survey. It’s really important to us that we build a true picture of the welfare needs of all small animals – from rabbits and guinea pigs to chinchillas and ferrets – which could lead to changes for the better.

“We’d love to see even more pet owners share their views on the issues affecting their small pets’ health and welfare before the survey closes on 30 November. It takes no more than 15 minutes to complete and owners can choose to enter our prize draw to win a fantastic small animal bundle worth, as well as runner up prizes.”
