RABBIT OF THE MONTH

 

 

 

 

Pearl

Location: foster

Pearl is back in our care after a failed ‘bonding’ with a potential mate. In this instance it seemed to be that both were to blame for the lack of success. We suspect Pearl may be just too nervy to cope with both a change of environment and introductions to a potential mate all in one go. As such we are willing to rehome Pearl to live alone outdoors providing she will have regular contact with her carers and can build up her relationship with them on her own terms.

It’s no surprise Pearl is quite wary of change given the rotten past she has had. 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 at this link: https://news.rspca.org.uk/2017/03/02/appeal-after-rabbits-dumped-in-terrible-condition-in-sheffield/

Pearl has been in our care for 6 months and we believe she about 3 to 4 years of age. As you can see from her news story she suffered terrible neglect but her foster mum has worked wonders with Pearl. Her 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.

Pat

SINGLE HOUSE RABBIT

Location: foster

Pat is a 9 week old lad looking for a new home after he was rescued along with his mother and siblings from poor, cramped conditions, he was only 3 weeks at the time so thankfully can’t remember much of the ordeal. He has been in our care ever since and is now ready to start his life in a loving home.

Pat is a sweet little fluffy thing who gets a lot of his confidence from his mum but he’s a growing boy so the time has come for him to start braving the world on his own. With a little encouragement and plenty pf compliments he’ll be out and at the front of the pen greeting people, it doesn’t take him long to make friends. He enjoys adventure but enjoys food more so he rarely strays too far from the tray of hay!

Pat is looking for a home as single house rabbit living at the heart of home where he can get plenty of attention. He is currently too young to be neutered but this will be done by the branch when he’s old enough. He can be shy at first but soon warms up so would be suitable to live with older children.

If you would like to adopt Pat contact us today!

Maigret

Location: foster

Maigret (pronounced May-grey) is a 5 month old chilled out lop eared lad 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 Maigret 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.

Maigret is a docile rabbit who gets little done in his day besides hay munching, he’s living the dream! He occasionally hops from one tray of hay to the other but unlike his brothers he prefers sitting to exploring. The only time that we’ll really see him spring into action is lunch time, then he’ll race around gobbling up as many veggies as possible. Maigret doesn’t mind being picked up, he’ll happy continue his hay munching on your lap whilst having a stroke or a tickle.

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.

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.

Pia

Location: foster

Pia is a very beautiful baby bunny who has come into our care having suffered unknown tragedy. It appears that she was abandoned by her owner and found herself on a car scrapyard. When staff at the yard found Pia she was collapsed and her back end covered in what we believe was a chemical burn, probably from something on the site. Pia has undergone a painful care regime of twice daily cleaning of her wound and medication. She was such a brave little lady who inspired us daily with her resilience. To look at her now you would never know anything had happened to her. Understandably grew wary of people during the treatment but now fully healed she has regained her confidence and trust in humans and adores a fuss. She doesn't even run away when you pick her up any more.


The way to Pia's heart is through food. She has a phenomenonal appetite for meadow and Timothy hay and leafy green veg. She also loves things to jump on and enjoys leaping ledges and sitting on boxes perusing the world. She is an incredibly clean baby and does all her toileting in her litter tray. Never a stray poop in sight. 


Pia would make an amazing house rabbit who will love plenty of human company and probably a bunny friend too. She is approximately 4 months old and has been combi vacc, RHD2 vacc and microchipped. The branch will pay for neutering once she is old enough but can be bonded with a neutered male companion now.

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.

Hazel & Maple

Location: foster

Hazel and Maple are a beautiful Netherland Dwarf, mother and daughter double act! They were rescued by the National RSPCA after they were tragically abandoned in a hedge by a busy roadside. It's remarkable how they were not killed or significantly traumatised by their experience.

Hazel (mainly black) is mum and we estimate around 1 year old. She has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Maple (Siamese sable) is approximately 4 -5 months old, vaccinated but not quite ready for neutering (this will be paid for by the branch when she's old enough).   The girls truly love each other and take great comfort snuggling up together. Arguably playtime is their favourite time and they confidently explore their surroundings and binkies abound, especially from Maple; seemingly nothing much phases them!   They are excellent hay eaters and enjoy a hay and greens only diet (we avoid dried food to aid their dental health).

These girls are currently in a foster home living as house rabbits and have proven to enjoy their home comforts. Ideally they would like a home as house bunnies but they can also live outdoors in a suitably large, sheltered set up. These girls will be happy to live with a family where children are of primary school age and above.

Holmes

Location: foster

Holmes is a 5 month old lop eared lad who is full of confidence and character, he is 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 Holmes 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.

Holmes is a cheeky boy who knows no fear, he spends his day at the door to his shed waiting for visiting cats to pass by so he can take a sniff, or even better a nibble of them. Unlike most bunnies that shy away from people walking he will hop around narrowing missing being stepped on and is more than happy to be scooped up and placed on a knee for strokes and tickle time; It’s hard to know if Holmes is brave or a little dim but either way he’s a fantastic bunny! He would make an ideal house rabbit as nothing bothers him but he does enjoy testing things out with his teeth so his new carer needs to not be too precious about their belongings! Holmes would suit most homes as he is so bold and brilliant but he would be best suited to living with children over 8 years of age as he will nibble a finger given the chance!

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.
