Rae joined what was the British House Rabbit Association (BHRA) in 1997 and was responsible for setting up the Rabbit Welfare Fund (RWF) as a charity in 2000. Having spent several years as an RSPCA home checker she is, like all of the Directors, a huge supporter of rabbit rescue. The RWF is a small but dedicated team and this means that Rae undertakes all of the ‘A Hutch is Not Enough’ campaigning. She attends all of the meetings on other committees to represent the RWF and rabbit welfare, and liaises with other organisations and the retail trade. Rae organises the annual conferences and does the day to day admin and membership.
