Kevin Newell, who helps care for the animals at the rescue centre, told BBC Scotland of the successful appeal: "We have been inundated - we have got more wands here than in Hogwarts.
"The mascara brushes are cleaned, and we get them ready for the baby season. They are usually orphaned."If using on a small rabbit it's fantastic as they are so fine, it removes mites and dust, and once that grooming process is in place it's a bonding thing."It's like parental care. It keeps them clean, happy and healthy."
He added: "We have given these brushes a second life - and we will then get them recycled and made into another product."
