The Hingham based charity supports a large variety of animal species, including a 'village' of rabbits waiting to be re-homed.

But it warned the wintery weather was causing serious problems for their bunny residents, with water bottles freezing and leaving the rabbits without hydration.

In a post on its facebook page on Saturday, January 26, the charity wrote: 'With the weather changing we have need for rabbit water bottle covers for 600ml bottles. Little things like this make a big difference to our animals.

'If you have a spare one you don't use we don't mind second hand or new as they will still help ensure the bunnies waters don't freeze. Many thanks from the bunnies in our rabbit village.'
