RABBITS OF THE MONTH

 

 

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!

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

 

 

 

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.

If you would like to adopt the girls contact us today!

Stewey

SINGLE HOUSE RABBIT

Location: private boarding

Get ready to squeal, our baby bunnies are now available for adoption! Stewey and his litter mates were born around the second week in May and now this beautiful litter of babies are looking for new homes. They have come from a property overrun with rabbits living in 18 inch 'hutches' (including the mum and babies!). Thankfully, they are now safe, healthy and enjoying having space and enrichment to play like rabbits should!  

The bunnies are typically scampish, endearing babies that are busy playing, binkying and eating. They will benefit from regular handling and socialising with people, as all babies do. They have had their combi vaccination (for VHD & myxi) and will be microchipped before they leave us. Once old enough the branch will pay for them to be neutered.  

Stewey can only be rehomed as single house rabbit but in the future, once neutered could be bonded with a suitable neutered female.

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

 

 

 

 

 

Theodore

SINGLE HOUSE RABBIT

Location: private boarding

Theodore is a remarkable character who has survived against all odds. He was one of 3 bunnies that was found stray without the mum, but they were barely 3 weeks old and should not have been alone. Sadly two of the bunnies passed away within a matter of days. Theo is now 11 weeks old and has had combi vacc at 8 weeks old and RHD2 at 11weeks old. Theo’s foster mum has this lovely insight to share about him:
“Theodore is such a sweet natured and placid bunny rabbit. It has been amazing as her foster mum to watch her go from strength to strength he really is a fighter! He loves cuddles and whenever the back door is opened he comes running up to the und of her pen for cuddles and fresh greens! He is easy to pick up as he has been handled from three weeks old. He really likes lots of space to run around and he enjoys jumping on top of things. Due to his lovely nature I think Theodore would make the perfect house rabbit with the correct bunny proofing to keep him safe. If he were to remain outdoors he would need a big area and maybe a suitable companion or someone who is willing to give him lots of attention each day. Whoever chooses Theodore will have a friend for life.”


If you would like to offer Theo a home he will be neutered by the branch once old enough, but for now will need to be a single house bunny. However,
in the future, once neutered he could be bonded with a suitable neutered female.

Rover & Maven

RESERVED

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.

 

Rosetta

Location: private boarding

Rosetta was just 10 days old when she came in to our care back in January this year. For reasons we just cannot explain she is still in our care after all these months. She’s a pretty little girl who has truly blossomed since going into a foster home for an attempt at bonding with a male. Unfortunately the male rejected her so she is back with us once more, hoping someone will come forward and offer her a home for life.


This is what insights were learnt about Rosetta whilst she enjoyed living the life of luxury (albeit temporarily) as s house rabbit: “In the time that I fostered Rosetta I saw such an amazing change from the timid, shy bunny that first arrived to a confident, curious little madam after just a few weeks! Rosetta was quick to settle into her new environment and explored every nook and cranny. She loved her hay and veggies and would bound over the minute you entered the room, no doubt hoping for treats! She is not fond of being handled but will happily let you stroke her and will always come and investigate you with some head butts while you're cleaning her pen out! It's such a shame this bun wasn't right for our home but someone will be very lucky to adopt this gorgeous girl!”


As you can see Rosetta made a fabulous house rabbit and would be perfect for anyone looking for a new companion to share their home with. Rosetta can live indoors as a single bunny, but if she is to be outdoors it would have to be with a neutered, male rabbit companion.

If you want to try bonding her you can read about our special bonding scheme at the top of this page!

Pearl

Location: private boarding

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. 

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

 

Candy

Location: private boarding

Candy is back in our care after she suddenly found herself well and truly rejected by a potential male companion. Candy did nothing wrong, he just wasn’t having any of it! Candy is from a stunning litter of Netherland Dwarf bunnies born around the middle of May. They have come from a property where rabbits were being bred for money and kept (with mum and their siblings) in 18 inch sized 'hutches'.

Netherland Dwarf rabbits or ‘neddies’ as they are affectionately known, are by nature dinky in stature but full of character. Candy is the last of her litter looking for her second chance at life. She is a sweet little girl with lots of baby playfulness. Watching her binky is just the best! She is inquisitive, lively and loves a good explore, so any potential companion for her must be willing to tolerate an energetic baby.

Candy has had her combi vaccination (for VHD & myxi) and her RHD2 vacc and has been  microchipped. Once old enough the branch will pay for her to be neutered too.  Candy can be adopted as a single house bunny or to join a neutered male bunny to live indoors or outside. You can read about our special bonding scheme at the top of this page!

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carl & Lenny

Location: private boarding

Lenny and Carl two brothers around 1 year of age. They originally came into our care toward the end of 2016 being spotted roaming around a garden along with their mother, father, and siblings. It appears that their owner released the rabbits in the garden to fend for themselves and obviously accidental breeding occurred! The boys found a home together in early January but have been returned to us through no fault of their own.


Lenny and Carl are two beautiful boys who seem to be very smitten with each other. Lenny is smooth coated and is the brave boy of the 2, he can’t resist the sound of rustling bag being opened which will hopefully contain some tasty treats. Carl is a lionhead lad and he will hold back whilst poking his nose round the corner to try and sniff out what’s on offer before hopping straight in like his brother. Both boys are a joy to watch, they enjoy exploring together and make good use of all huts, boxes and tunnels on offer to them. Being used to a life free roaming in  a garden has given them a taste for adventure! Both boys will accept head strokes, especially if food is on offer. Lenny is always the first to greet us but Carl remains a reserved character.


The boys are looking for a new home together ideally in an outdoor set up where they can roam and explore to their heart's content. The boys are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Clint & Horace

HOUSE RABBITS

Location: private boarding

Clint and Horace are the perfect pair of bunnies. They are so friendly, easy to handle, love their hay and veggies and absolutely love life! They would be ideal for first time bunny owners and/or a family. It’s truly a mystery to us why they have not been snapped up sooner.


The boys were rescued from truly shocking conditions where 60 rabbits were living free-range in a house in their own dirt. They came to us as babies and are now 6 months old and love each other more and more as each day passes. We know that not all male bondings are bomb-proof but these two are an exception and are going to be best friends forever, as they live happily alongside other bunnies.

Clint and Horace are gorgeous, inquisitive and affectionate bunnies. As soon as you walk into the room they race up to the edge of their pen to try and get to you and will often put their tiny noses through the bars for a little tickle. When in their own space they both love strokes and head-rubs and will settle down into ‘miniature loaves’; you will definitely get bored of it before they do! When they’re out of their run they enjoy exploring everything around them. They are little adventurers and love lots of things to keep them occupied and a good box to sit on!


They would make ideal house rabbits or could live outdoors in a sheltered space like a garage or a shed where you can spend time sitting with them and enjoying their company (a hutch and run would unlikely meet their needs for company). If you have a big heart and space in your home to share your life with these two then please get in touch as we are getting too attached! The boys are both neutered, vaccinated (combi and RHD2) and microchipped.

Valentina

IDEAL SINGLE HOUSE RABBIT

Location: private boarding

Valentina is a bunny that bears the emotional scars of her previous existence. She was removed from a home of 60 free-roaming, unneutered rabbits. Many of these rabbits bore physical injuries and plenty of scars from the fighting that must have gone on. Valentina has always been shy whilst in our care and a recent attempt to bond her with a placid male bunny has demonstrated that she is incredibly wary of other rabbits and reluctant to trust.


What was remarkable about her recent stint out in a foster home was how much she bonded with her carer. The relationship they enjoyed was nothing like the Valentina we have in our care. She appreciated the space of her own territory, began to bond with the hand that fed her and enjoyed strokes and close contact: quite a transformation from the timid lady we have known. So having seen her begin to blossom it has proven what a rewarding rabbit she will be to the right, new home.

Valentina is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. She has been used to living indoors and is very clean. We would ideally like her to be rehomed as a single house rabbit rather than stress her out with more attempts at bonding, but if you have other bunnies she will live happily alongside them. In experienced hands she may learn to trust a bunny again, but this would likely be a long-term project. Just so you know Valentina is not particularly food orientated, she eats hay and veg but we can’t bribe her with anything to encourage a bond.


If you can offer this special lady a quiet and loving home indoors, ideally with her own defined territory please get in touch.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rusty

Location: private boarding

Rusty is a 2 year old rapscallion looking for a new home after being rescued, along with 20 other rabbits, from a life in an 18’’ cage. She is approximately 2 years old so its unsurprising that she has a lot of making up to do for lost time. We can't even imagine the frustration and boredom she must have felt in the first 2 years of her life but we are determined to make up for it now. After being neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and health checked by a rabbit specialist vet she is ready for a fresh start.

Rusty is a hare disguised as a Netherland dwarf cross breed: she is feisty and fast and can wriggle her way out of anything! But given her history we are more than understanding and as long as she has her space she is a delight. She is playful and cheeky and has a great eye for home décor. She is often seen taking her toys and hay stuffed loo rolls up and down the ramp deciding where they look best. She is confident on approach, especially if you are armed with treats, but she can sense when someone is about to pick her up and she’ll spring off quick sharp. She’s never aggressive but it’s almost impossible to keep her still for health checks. Rusty was neutered on the 12th of July so could be reserved for bonding from the 23rd August.

She could be bonded with a neutered male and live indoors or out, or can live as a spoilt single house rabbit. She will need plenty of space and if outdoors a very secure set up. She isn’t suitable to be handled by children as she is so wriggly. You can read about our special bonding scheme at the top of this page! Please note we do not rehome single rabbits to live alone outdoors.

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

 

Sherry

Sherry and her litter mates were born around the second week in May and now this beautiful litter of babies are looking for new homes. They have come from a property overrun with rabbits living in 18 inch 'hutches' (including the mum and babies!).

Ray & Roz

Location: private boarding

Roz and Ray are a cheeky duo looking for a new home together due to their owner signing them over after fleeing from domestic violence. The pair have obviously been well loved as they are confident and friendly bunnies and now that they are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped they are ready to cause trouble in a new home.

When the pair first arrived we guessed that Roz may be Ray’s mother as she is a few months older than him, Ray (grey) is around 7 months old and Roz about 1 year but we don’t really know how the 2 came to be a pair. They certainly love each other though and both are equally as noisy as each other. The pair are straight over when visitors arrive, sniffing legs, shoes, hands, making sure that anything edible is coming their way. Ray being a little younger will have a few strokes then be off on another adventure but Ray will settle down and enjoy head strokes until we get bored and have to give up.

Like most rabbits being picked up isn’t something they enjoy but they certainly love interacting with people on ground level. Roz and Ray are a smashing pair who will bring plenty of joy to the home. They would be suitable to be rehomed with children as they are so confident and would enjoy a life either free range in a room indoors or in an extra-large enclosure full of exciting stuff outside.

Zara

Location: private boarding

Zara is sadly back in our care after a failed bonding. It wasn't anything to with her we must add! He male suitor was simply disinterested so the little lady is back, waiting patiently once more for a home to call her own. Zara is under one year old and is an independent girl. She came into our care after being rescued from a tiny cramped hutch which she was sharing with another female. The pair were rescued by our inspectors but due to Zara being a bit of a bully the two were separated. Once neutered she calm down but is strong minded and if she were a human you'd say "she doesn't butter nay parsnips"!

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. 

Zara has been waiting for a home for over 6 months and we will now consider her living alone outdoors if you spend a lot time in your garden, so she can have company, albeit on her terms! She could be attempted to paired again with a neutered male rabbit but he must be of generous heart and mind. If you want to try bonding her you can read about our special bonding scheme at the top of this page!

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

 

 

Sophia

Location: private boarding

Sophia is back in our care after an attempt to pair her with a male companion did not work out. In this instance it was the male demonstrating he was unwilling to share his territory with Sophia that resulted in rejection. Sophia was born around the middle of May. She has come from a property where rabbits were being bred for money and kept (with mum and their siblings) in 18 inch sized 'hutches'.

Sophia is a Netherland Dwarf cross and is absolutely stunning! Sophia is a delightful personality who benefits from being young, making her adaptable to live in most homes. She needs somewhere where she can receive plenty of human interaction and develop a strong relationship with her carers. Because she was separated from her litter mates to go out for bonding, now she is returned she is living alone. As such we are really keen to see her move on to a forever home as soon as possible, either as a single house bunny or to join a neutered male bunny to live indoors or outside.  

Sophia is a baby girl that needs more attention than we are able to give he. She needs to be in a home being appreciated and enjoyed by her hoomans rather than stuck in rescue. Sophia has had her combi vaccination (for VHD & myxi) and her RHD2 vacc and has been  microchipped. Once old enough the branch will pay for her to be neutered too. If you want to try bonding her you can read about our special bonding scheme at the top of this page!
