RABBIT OF THE MONTH

 

 

 

 

 

Mabel

RESERVED

Location: foster

Mabel is a stunning Himalayan bunny who has come into our care after being found on a member of the public’s doorstep in a box with her 3 babies. Sadly one of the babies died but the other two have thrived and are now old enough to find homes for themselves. Mable has now been neutered, vaccinated (combi and RHD2) and microchipped and is looking for an outdoor life with a husbun. This is what her foster mum has to say about her:


“I love this one, she’s an absolute angel. Mabel adores lots of space, running and binkying around the garden. I have had to refrain from raking up the leaves as I don't think she would be impressed because she loves eating them so much! She's not scared of the neighbourhood cats  and will see them off, but she is very bothered about windy weather.

Mabel is a very independent lady and likes to do her own thing. She’s not one for fusses but will take food from your hands. Like most rabbits she’s not desperately keen on being picked up but once in your arms she is calm. She also really appreciates places to hide and is particularly fond of the garage!”


Mabel has stolen our foster mum’s heart and has her wrapped round her paws (she likes fresh water replacing at least twice a day from her bowl!). Well, she does deserve a pamper after all she’s been through. We estimate Mabel to be around 2 to 3 years old. She is looking for a home in an outdoor set up, ideally with the opportunity to free-roam around the garden at times. She can be bonded with a neutered male rabbit under our foster-for-bonding scheme (see branch website), so if you have an outdoor lad in need of a companion please get in touch.

Luigi

HOUSE RABBIT

Location: foster

Luigi came into our care with his mum and siblings when he was just 2 weeks old. He was given the nick name ‘Baby Perfect’ and boy has he lived up to his name! Luigi is over 12 weeks old now and has been held back from rehoming because he was slow to develop. However, he is now a sturdy little kit who has been given the thumbs up for rehoming by the vets and has received both his combi vacc and RHD2 vacc. This is what his foster mum has to day about him:


“Luigi is a lovely natured bunny who is both confident and relaxed. He loves company and has been really enjoying his indoor home comforts with us. Luigi loves having plenty of space to run around in and is very good at using the litter trays despite only being a young. Luigi prefers to keep all 4 paws on the ground rather than being picked up but he will sit for ages and tooth purr when being stroked at his level. He always runs to greet us when we enter his room and would love a home where he will get lots of attention.”


We know his foster family are smitten by this little boy and are keen to make sure he finds a home where he will live in the heart of the home as one of the family. The branch will pay for Luigi to be neutered once he is a little older but as he cannot be neutered yet he cannot be bonded with another bunny until this is done. For the time being he is looking for a home as a house bunny where he will be loved and cherished.

Poirot

Location: foster

Poirot is a 5 month old mini Himalayan cross breed bunny looking for a new home after being found abandoned in a box on a field along with 3 other rabbits. They were cold and wet and sadly one of the rabbits had passed away. Thankfully Poirot made it through and after being rescued by the National RSPCA inspectors is now happily residing in a foster home. He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped so is ready for happy times ahead.

Poirot was a little shy when he first arrived, he’d dive behind a cabinet when he saw us and just sneak his little nose out for veggies, but after just a few days he’s racing round and enjoying life. He loves exploring and despite his small stature can be quite brave. Poirot will tolerate being handled but prefers a stroke on the ground whilst munching on some greens. Poirot would make an ideal house rabbit as he’d love squeezing himself behind every piece of furniture and jumping on the sofa. Being a little shy he’d be best suited to a home with older children.

He was neutered on the 11th October so can be bonded with a neutered female from the 15th November. Please note we will only reserve a rabbit for 7 days.

If you would like to adopt Poirot contact us today!

Mary, Jane & Lizzie

Watch a video here!

Location: foster home

Jane, Lizzie and Mary are 3 year old sister who have come from a home of 24 rabbits. They were removed from a multi-rabbit household where many of the 24 bunnies were kept in cramped hutches stacked high to the ceiling. Despite this sheltered existence the girls are more confident than you would expect and after being neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and health checked by a rabbit specialist vet, are ready for a new loving home.


This is what their adoring foster mum has to say about the girls:     "Whoever adopts this trio of cuteness is in for a real treat, as they are great fun to watch always chasing each other round, fighting for food or piled on top of each other sleeping. The girls all have a close bond with each other but each has her own unique personality.

JANE is the most confident and will be the first to introduce herself on meeting. She is the rabbit in charge and will be the one to take control of any situation. Her favourite past time is running through her play tunnels, if there is a tunnel nearby she will always go through it never round it.

LIZZY is the outdoor girl, while the other two are still sleeping in bed she will be out in the run come rain or shine digging. She reverses up and down the run digging as she goes and has transformed my run which was full of grass to a barren wasteland in a few weeks.

MARY is the shy one and is not as confident as the other two but this shy creature transforms herself into a ferocious beast when food is around! She always makes sure she gets her third and will steal food out of the mouths of the other two! Her main hobby is sleeping and she stays in bed until about 3pm every day and seems to enjoy having the bed to herself to stretch out when the other two go off to play. I spoil her by taking her breakfast in bed and I think she enjoys eating her breakfast in peace after living with 4 other rabbits for most of her life. Potential adopters need to know that Mary has a cataract in her left eye but it is not causing her any trouble and is unlikely to do so in the future, although it may explain her more sedate behaviour.


All of the girls like being stroked and Mary and Lizzy don’t mind being picked up but Jane prefers her feed on the ground. They are 3 lovely rabbits and would make great companions."  

The girls will need a sizable outdoor enclosure to be able to meet their needs, for more information please contact the branch. The adoption fee for the 3 girls is just £70.

Sophia

Location: foster

Sophia came into our care in July when she was just 8 to10 weeks old. She had come from a property where rabbits were being bred for money and kept (with mum and their siblings) in 18 inch sized 'hutches'. Sophia received the offer of a home with a male bunny and went out for bonding.

Unfortunately the male bunny was unwilling to accept her so she was returned. Sadly Sophia came back rather spooked so we placed her in a foster home to regain her confidence. Sophia has come on in leaps and bounds with her foster mum. She has been receiving plenty of gentle and positive, reward-based interaction to develop her self-confidence. This has worked tremendously well but Sophia’s lack of early socialisation prior to rescue is always going to see her reactive to sudden movements and noisy activity.

Sophia does enjoy the outdoor life, but could also thrive in a quiet indoor home, maybe with a room away from the hubbub. We think it would be definitely worth trying again at introducing her to a gentlemanly bunny that is a strong, confident character but not cocky! Sophia is now 6 months old and as you can see very beautiful. We believe her to be a Netherland Dwarf so she is very dinky!

She has been neutered, vaccinated (combi and RHD2) and microchipped. Since being in our care she has been fed a hay based diet with a few leafy greens and tiny amount of pellets as treats/bribes! If you have a loving and calm home to offer our little get them please get in touch.

Hazel

Location: foster

Hazel came into our care just over two months ago. She and her daughters were abandoned on a roadside. Understandably they were quite shaken up by their ordeal so we gave them plenty of time to settle and work out who wanted to live with who, as we rarely find homes for trios. Once we’d seemingly figured all that out hormones then kicked in with the daughters so sadly we had to separate Hazel as she was being bullied. Hazel has now adjusted to her separation and is settled in a foster home and ready and waiting for a forever home. This is what her foster mum has to say:


“Hazel is the sweetest little bun ever.  She loves running, changing directions and even binkying! She's not afraid of noises (as in fireworks) but the vacuum cleaner is a different matter (one of her daughter’s was exactly the same). Hazel has not chewed anything although I still keep a close eye on her of course and she's not jumped onto furniture. She is, however, into everything and is brave in exploring, but doesn't like being touched too much though she will tolerate it without biting but is a wriggler. She's really gentle and in time, with someone with patience, I think she'll make the perfect bun. She even comes up to sniff me and will let me touch her head which is a million miles away from what she was like when she first arrived.”


Although Hazel has been indoors for a couple of months we do think she would be happy as an outside bun with lots of space or a free range house bun as she hates being caged. Hazel is not overly interested people and just wants to play. The more space the better for this one and she is the most fantastic hay eater. She is picky about what greens she eats and is just so content with hay (meadow and timothy variety). Hazel is neutered, micorchipped and has had combi and RHD2 vacc. She could be paired with a neutered male to live outdoors but can be a single house rabbit. Hazel could live with older children so long as she is left to her own devices.
