RABBIT OF THE MONTH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amarella

Location: private boarding

Amarella is our own little mother Teresa here at the branch, she was rescued back in January from terrible conditions with not one but two litters of babies. She was being repeatedly bred from so our poor girl had given birth to six bundles of joy just 4 weeks after giving birth to two others. Our inspectors got her just in time as many of her babies were weak and she was extremely skinny and covered in urine. Thankfully after a couple of months recuperation she is thriving and has begun to loose her yellow stained coat,although the pictures of her do suggest otherwise! Her babies have now been separated and have started to find homes of their own so after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is finally ready for some attention.


Amarella was extremely skittish when she first arrived, having being used as a baby making machine rather than being loved like all companion animals should be. Thankfully a bit of time and patience goes a long way, add in some curly kale and we now have a much more confident bunny. She hops around, comes to investigate new people and is starting to enjoy life as a foot loose and fancy free woman. She still needs to be approached sensitively and she’ll avoid being handled, but she’s never been reactive or even struggled, you can just see how worried she gets when out of her comfort zone.


Amarella is looking for a home with an understanding owner who will allow her the time to settle in at her own pace. She was neutered on the 1st March so is ready to be reserved for bonding from the 29th March. However, given her past experience of male rabbits she will likely need a very placid companion.

If you would like to adopt Amarella contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nanette

Location: private boarding

Nanette is a silky smooth female bunny looking for a new home after she was found stray with no sign of an owner. She was discovered by a member the public back in December 2016 when she was just a young nipper; we estimate she was born at the end of July, she’s now fully grown and after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is ready for adoption.


It’s taken Nanette a few months to settle in our care: she was ever so shy when she first arrived so  we decided just to leave her to acclimatise before attempting a photo shoot and character judgement on her. We still feel that she won’t show us her true character until she’s in her new home but we are getting to see snippets of cuteness and greedy behaviour. She likes venturing out in her run, discovering nooks and crannies and jumping up onto whatever’s available. She loves her hay too and enjoys moving it around as much as eating it!


Nanette is a skittish little lady who needs a quiet home and an owner who will be patient and understanding with her. She is sure to be a very rewarding companion as she’ll no doubt flourish over time. Nanette was neutered on the 16th January so can be bonded with a male bunny to live outdoors.
We have a special scheme at our branch for bunny bonders, please see our bonding information at the top on our website (top of this page!).

Pearl

HOUSE RABBIT

Location: foster care

Pearl is coming up to 3 years of age and has been in our care for nearly 3 months recovering from the most terrible neglect. She was abandoned with her sister at a roadside in Sheffield and despite veterinary intervention we could not save her best friend. You can read all about their ordeal here.


Pearl’s foster mum tells us all about this very special little lady:
“Pearl is a wonderfully odd little character. She is a stunning bunny with the most amazing blue eyes. When she first arrived she was very nervous. The slightest noise or movement would send her flying into the nearest hiding place where she would sit and stamp her feet repeatedly. She was clearly a rabbit who had lost all trust in humans.
As she gradually began to settle in, her unique personality slowly began to show itself.  She started to hide less and less. She wasn’t as fussy with food and would no longer bolt as soon as she saw you.


Then one day I found her out and sitting proudly on a small owl shaped cardboard cat scratcher. Now her daily routine consists of being up at dawn for a run around followed by a few on-the-spot binkies. Her next stop is her favourite perch, the owl scratcher, where she loves to sit and survey her kingdom. ll and has tried a variety of veggies. She eats plenty of hay daily. She is a very clean little lady who always uses her litter tray. Now that she is more relaxed in her surroundings she grooms herself regularly to keep herself looking her glamorous best. Pearl will never be a rabbit that enjoys being handled and she can get quite fretful when picked up.


One of the most heart-warming moments during my time fostering Pearl was the first time she relaxed enough to start to play with her toys. Considering all she had been through, and how scared she was when she first arrived. it felt like a huge breakthrough moment. Pearl is such a sweet soul. I believe given time she will continue come on leaps, bounds and binkies.”


Pearl is looking for a home with an animal lover with buckets of patience and realistic expectations. Pearl needs a quiet home (indoors or out) where she we won’t be spooked by people, noises and unfamiliar animals. Pearl is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. She can be bonded with a neutered male rabbit who is confident yet gentlemanly. Please see details on our special scheme for bunny bonders at the top of this page!

If you would like to adopt Pearl contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

Paige

Location: private boarding

Paige is a stunning fawn coloured rabbit around 2 years old. She is looking for a new home after she was rescued from a property with over 50 rabbits living in poor conditions. Breeding was out of control and the owner was unable to cope with the situation. Paige came to us with 6 beautiful baby bunnies which have now fled the nest so after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is ready to find a home of her own. Paige was reserved for bonding at the end of last year but sadly they didn’t take to one another. We did, however, get a good insight into her character being in a home:

“Well Paige is definitely a clever bunny and loves all her toys and treats. She eats more than any other rabbit I’ve ever known; stripping her 7ft run of grass in a day and making rapid progress across my whole garden! She showed no behaviour relating to burrowing out, but she quickly learnt which doors opened with a little extra effort so she needs a sturdy enclosure or she’ll be off! Paige gained a lot of confidence whilst with us and although like most rabbits she doesn’t particularly like being picked up she will definitely come up to you for food and a head stroke. Paige was completely un-phased by our cat and the goings on of the outdoors.”  

Paige is ideally looking for a neutered male rabbit to be bonded with as she is happiest in an outdoor setting. Her new partner needs to be accepting of a bossy, young lass. Her new owner will need to have a good supply of fresh hay and veg and a large secure enclosure to keep her safe.  We have a special scheme at our branch for bunny bonders, please see our bonding information at the top on our website (top of this page!).

If you would like to adopt Paige contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

Rosetta

Location: private boarding

Meet our little comet chaser Rosetta, she came in with her siblings when they were just 1 week old after their mum was found in a tiny hutch with an older litter of babies as well as these tiny newborns. Their mum had been repeatedly bred from and was in a sorry state, covered in urine and extremely skinny so we didn’t hold out much hope for her offspring but out of the 6 newborns 3 fought against the odds and survived. Although we believe she was born around the 1st of January she is smaller due to her poor start but her appetite is strong and the rabbit specialist vet we used has certified her as ‘fighting fit’. 


Rosetta was up for adoption as a trio with her two siblings but after complications post neutering  she had to be separated from them for a prolonged period of time so is now a single bunny seeking a neutered male companion.


Whilst Rosetta comes across as being quite a timid girl on first meeting her she does settle down once she’s used to you. Having lost the support of her siblings she’s having to try and muster up some braves to face the world alone. Once she’s scooped up in your arms she starts to relax and enjoys strokes and she quickly gets into a routine. She loves following staff up and down the corridor waiting for lunch time!


Rosetta was neutered on the 24th May so can be reserved for bonding from the 21st June. She would be ideal for bonding with a neutered male rabbit with a strong, confident character who can look after her. We have a bunny bonding scheme which you can read more about at the top of this page! She would be best suited to an outdoor enclosure in a peaceful home.

If you would like to adopt Rosetta contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

 

 

Kitty & Lydia

Location: private boarding

Kitty and Lydia are two lovely Dutch bunnies looking for a new home after 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.


Kitty and Lydia are approximately 3 years old and came in with their 3 other sisters, where they had lived since birth as a group. Knowing we could not find a home for a group of 5 bunnies we carefully observed the relationships and these two quickly separated themselves from the group and were often found lounging in bed together and were the first ones at our feet at feeding time. They are practically identical except for Lydia having a slightly longer and thinner white stripe down her forehead so it can be difficult deciding which one is the culprit when they run off with more than their fair share of treats! The girls were a little skittish at first but are growing in confidence every day. They are happy flopping out next to us, watching us clean and feed the other bunnies and are forgiving of our health checks and claw clipping. They have very sweet natures and so far haven’t complained about anything so we’re finding them excellent guests.


Kitty and Lydia are looking for a home together. They are used to living outdoors but we believe they could also adapt to a spacious and quiet indoor house. They love plenty of tunnels and boxes to pop in and out of and plenty of home comforts so they can stretch out and sunbathe.

If you would like to adopt Kitty & Lydia contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

Zara

Location: private boarding

If a small but spirited 5 month old heart breaker is what you’re looking for then Zara is the girl for you. She came into our care after being rescued from a tiny cramped hutch which she was sharing with her sister. The pair were rescued by our inspectors but due to Zara being a bit of a bully the two were separated. Since being neutered she has calmed down considerably, she did start nesting so we expect that raging hormones weren’t helping matters, so all is forgiven and she is now looking for a new home possibly with a neutered bunny boy for company.

Zara is small in size but has a big personality. She is confident when it suits her but can be dismissive of us if we interrupt her at an inconvenient time. We are sure that in the home she’ll be much more obliging as she’ll finally get the space and attention she so rightly deserves. Strokes are accepted if treats are given in exchange and anyone carrying some curly kale instantly goes up in her estimation. For a bunny who we’d still class as being a baby she sure has a good grasp of the world!

Zara is looking for a home with an experienced rabbit adopter. She was neutered on the 1st March so can be reserved for bonding, but any prospective mate will need to be placid. We have a special scheme at our branch for bunny bonders, please see our bonding information at the top on our website (top of this page!).

If you would like to adopt Zara contact us today!

Chipper

Location: private boarding

Chipper is a handsome brown and white Rex rabbit around 2 years old. He is looking for a new home after he was rescued from filthy, cramped conditions. When he first arrived his nails were so long that they were curling back on themselves so he is now much more comfortable and enjoying a clean and spacious enclosure.


In the short time we have had Chipper he has really come out of his shell. Understandably Chipper didn’t have a good association with people so we have been gently coaxing him with food and allowing him to settle in slowly. He is loving all the extra space and is making good use of every inch. We normally find him on top of a wooden castle or in a tunnel. We recently made a breakthrough and were allowed two lovely head strokes in return for a treat so we can see that Chipper is making progress but we need to take it slow and keep it on his terms. We are sure that once fully settled in a new home he will be hopping out to say hello and readily enjoying a tickle. Seeing his slow but sure transformation is just a delight and will no doubt bring much pleasure to his new family too.


Chipper has won the proud prize of being a ‘staff favourite’; Deb tells us how he won the title:


‘The reason why I love Chipper is because he came in with lots of other bunnies all of which were scared to death having lived a very sheltered life, and we thought that it’d be impossible to bring them round. But after just a couple of weeks he was grabbing veg out of my hand and rattling at his pen door for more food and attention. I couldn’t believe the transformation. Now he’s too cheeky if anything, pulling at my coat sleeve if I dare to cuddle him for too long or climbing up the wooden castle to get an extra mouthful of ready grass as I walk past, He’s just great! It helps that he’s beautiful too, such soft, plush fur you just want to rub your face in him, he’d never allow it obviously. I have a picture of him living free range in someone’s living room, jumping up onto the sofa and stealing a biscuit off the coffee table or throwing a cardboard box out of his way which his owner thought he’d enjoy, he’s such a character.

Understandably there are still times when something spooks him or signs of his past show, but generally he’s just an absolute credit to rabbit kind. ‘ Chipper is looking for a home with a patient and understanding owner who will allow him to go about his business without too much handling or pressure to socialise with people in the early days. He is neutered so can be reserved for bonding (see our special bonding service details above!). He would be the perfect companion for a bunny lady living outdoors who needs some company or someone seeking a handsome hunk for the house.

Clint & Hortensia

HOUSE RABBITS

Location: foster

Clint and Hortensia are a brother and sister pair born at the end of February. They are looking for a new home together after they were rescued from a property with over 60 rabbits living free range in their own filth. The conditions were truly shocking and many of the bunnies we admitted from the case had been badly beaten up by each other. Sadly Clint came off quite badly and is missing the tips of both ears, but thankfully they are now fully healed and he doesn’t seem to care! After a couple of months in foster care the pair are thriving, whilst still a little small for their age the vet is happy with their weight gain and now that they are vaccinated and microchipped they are ready for adoption.   Here is what their foster mum has to say about them:

"Clint and Hortensia (Holly for short) had a rough start to life, but you’d never know as they are the most precious bunnies I’ve ever met (don’t tell mine that). Clint is the sweetest of boys. As soon as you walk into the room he’ll press himself up against the bars of his run to push his nose through for you to stroke it and will stand up on his back two legs waiting to be cuddled. I’ve never met a bunny that loves affection quite so much, he’s desperate for your attention all the time and definitely deserves to get it! He’s more than happy to be picked up and cuddled, although quite often will try and clamber onto your shoulder for a better viewpoint. Holly is more reserved in her affection and isn’t quite so keen on being picked up, but with daily cuddles and kisses she’s getting much better and will happily be cuddled once you’ve got her, especially if there’s food involved! Both buns love head and cheek-rubs, and if you do it right you’ll be rewarded with some tooth purring!  

Despite his small size Clint seems to have the bigger attitude of the two. He has no problem telling you when he’s unhappy. If you decide cuddle time has come to an end and put him back down and he disagrees with your decision he will give a big thump to let you know! However if he decides cuddle time is over first he will give a little nip to let you know he’s had enough. He’s also the bigger explorer of the two. Holly seems to be much more of a sensible big sister and will often follow Clint around to make sure he doesn’t get himself into any trouble.  

They both have fantastic appetites and will gobble down any veg or fresh hay that you give them. They also love their toys, they’re particularly fond of a rabbit chew mat and a tunnel to run through! They thrive with every inch of space you give them and frequently have five minutes zooming around their run. The pair will make the most fantastic addition to any family and I can guarantee that you will fall in love with them as soon as you meet them.''   

Clint and Hortensia are looking for a fun filled enclosure within the home packed with toys and endless amounts of hay. They would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age. The pair are not yet neutered but this will be done by the branch once they are old and large enough.

If you would like to adopt Clint & Holly contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

Cindy & Joe

Location: private boarding

Joe (agouti and white, approx 1 to 2 years old) and Cindy (lionhead, approx 6 months) were found abandoned along with 6 other rabbits. Several of the bunnies were in a very poor state and could not be saved but thankfully these two, possibly father and daughter, were in good health. After being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped they are now ready for a forever home. This is what their foster mum has to say about the dinky pair:  

"At first this pair were very frightened and seemed uncomfortable around humans. Now they are really settling in! They are very rarely apart and they just love each other's company! Joe really enjoys lying on his side against Cindy and he regularly helps her clean her mane.   

They both love space to run around and will whizz around like a crazy pair of children! They really like to be 'on look out' and see what's going on. They enjoy looking for their food - I hide it all over their area for them to hunt for! They also love their tunnel to hide in. They really like to drink their water out of a bowl like they would in nature and they absolutely love their hay and greens. At the moment they are enjoying dandelions.   

I am handling them daily and they are used to living in proximity with a friendly dog. They are becoming less difficult to catch and Joe in particular seems to be starting to enjoy cuddles."  

This pair of bunnies must be adopted together as they are very good friends. They would probably prefer to live outside in a secure hutch & run (min. 6ft hutch with same sized permanently attached run) or in a secure garden to free roam. Due to their nature they would only be suitable to live with sensible, older children. We are confident that in their forever home they will continue to thrive!

Cassandra

Watch a video of Cassandra here!

Location: private boarding

Cassandra is a striking young  lop eared girl with very unusual markings, she looks completely different depending on what side of her you see. Having 1 blue eye and uneven chocolate splodges certainly makes her stand out from the crowd.


Cassandra was born around February so is still only a baby. She is looking for a new home after she was rescued from a property with over 60 rabbits living free range in their own filth. The conditions were truly shocking and many of the bunnies we’ve admitted from the case have been badly beaten up by each other but thankfully Cassandra made it out with just a few scabs and scrapes. After being vaccinated and health checked by a rabbit specialist vet she is all good to go on to lead a better life. Cassandra is a delightful bunny who is easy to scoop up and handle and will settle down for a stroke once she’s got herself in a comfy position. At the moment she’s enjoying having rabbit company as she’s lodging with a group of younger bunnies, she can be rehomed either with the female from her group (Clara) or to be bonded with a neutered male. She is used to being free range so will need plenty of space in her new home.

Although she is currently too young to be neutered this will be done by the branch towards the end of June once she is old enough. We have a special scheme at our branch for bunny bonders, please see our bonding information at the top on our website (top of this page!).

Douglas

Location: private boarding

Who can resist a young ginger boy?! We certainly can’t which is why Douglas holds a soft spot in our hearts. He’s around one year old and was found stray back in January with no sign of an owner.  Douglas has been with so long because he has been on a long journey of recovery. As in quite typical with young rabbits he has had a liver infection, but at such a young age the liver rapidly regenerates and we now have a perfectly healthy bunny boy with normal liver and kidney readings. The vet is now happy to sign him off for adoption and we are exceedingly excited and proud to share him with you all. Douglas is  neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and definitely ready for his forever home.


Douglas is a sweet little chap who despite being cautious around new people is always gentle and never grumpy. He has gradually grown in confidence around us and when given a few moments to settle he’ll start nose twitches and the urge to investigate gets the better of him. He will gradually come out of whatever hiding place he’s darted to, likes to eat, sniff and stretch out and will slowly start to socialise once he’s used to your presence. He’s obviously not been handled much but he tolerates health checks and complies with whatever we need him to do. We try and take things slowly and keep interaction on ground level, which to be fair is something most of our rabbits require. We have all grown very fond of Douglas and so want him to find a loving new home, ideally with a ladybun companion to boost his confidence.


Douglas is looking for a home either indoors or out. He’d be best suited to a home where he can play the day away and hop around freely.

If you would like to adopt Douglas contact us today!

Rover & Maven

Location: private boarding

Meet our little Mars satellites Rover and Maven, 2 young bunnies full of naughtiness and delight who were rescued when they were just 1 week old after their mum was found in a tiny hutch with an older litter of babies as well as these tiny newborns. They have been in our care since January. They had been up for adoption with their sister to live as a trio but Rosetta experienced complications with her neuter and after an unavoidable and prolonged period of separation we were sadly unable to put them back together as a bonded trio. However, hopefully a pair of cute bunnies will appeal more than a trio and these two will get snapped up very soon!

Their mum had been repeatedly bred from and was in a sorry state, covered in urine and extremely skinny so we didn’t hold out much hope for her offspring but out of the 6 newborns 3 fought against the odds and survived. Although we believe they were born around the 1st of January Maven and Rover are smaller due to their poor start but their appetites are strong and our rabbit specialist vet has certified them ‘fighting fit’.  

After many a month in a our care the ‘wee babies’ as we’ve affectionately been calling them feel like part of the team, they follow us up and down the corridor from their high up run and try and help out in every aspect; cleaning, toy sorting and especially feeding. The little lad Rover has become the most confident with us, perhaps because he’s the smallest and the one we’ve kissed and cuddled the most, but he’s ever so cheeky and will push himself up against the bars of his pen to try and magically push himself through. Maven can be a little hesitant when handled but food time brings her flying over too and she’s ever so good once settled in your arms.

Like dogs the pair come bounding over when called and will respond to any rustling, whistling or veg chopping. They’ve become extremely confident with our bunny carer and will do their very best to climb up her arms and will nudge her for extra portions.  

Rover and Maven would suit a family with older children or any peaceful home. They are both neutered, vaccinated (combi and RHD2) and microchipped so are all ready for a new life.

If you would like to adopt Maven & Rover contact us today! Email or call 0161 882 0680.

 

Olaf

Location: private boarding

Olaf is a 2 year old hunk who woos the ladies with his confidence and dashing good looking. He finds himself in our care after his owner could no longer cope taking care of him so after being neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and health checked by our rabbit specialist vet he is ready for a fresh start.


Olaf is quick to come and explore new surroundings and likes to claim possession of everything he sees with a good chin rub, and that includes people too! We enjoy just sitting watching him hop around his pen, sniffing every inch before he decides to come over and attempt to scale up our back or nudge our feet. He’s happy to accept head strokes and will bunker down and settle for a good tickle session when he’s in the mood. Like most bunnies he does not enjoy being picked up but he’s tolerant enough so quick health checks aren’t a chore.


Olaf is a dreamboat and he knows it. He needs a confident owner who will enjoy his boldness and give him the space and attention he craves. He is ready to be reserved for bonding but it would need to be a laid back neutered lady in order to bond with our head strong chap. Olaf would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age or above and would be suitable living indoors or out if bonded.
We have a bunny bonding scheme which you can read more about at the top of this page!
