___________________________________________________________________

Vienetta and Magnum

VIENETTA a brown silver fox adult female & MAGNUM a brown lop aged young adult. They are a lovely pair of rabbits who have recently been bonded; they will need an experienced owner who is confident with handling as they can both wriggle a lot!

 

Solero and Twister

Two young females who are looking for a forever home. Ideally they can be re-homed singly to a home with a neutered male already.

Cappuccino and Corona

CAPPUCCINO is a brown & white domestic female aged approx. 1yr old.  CORONA is grey & white lionhead angora cross aged approx 1yr old. Both are very friendly inquisitive rabbits who will approach. Corona will need regular grooming and clipping, he tolerates this very well  - however, they will need an experienced owner for this.

Bunnies to follow

More bunnies coming soon

Rabbit info - please read before contacting us

All of our bunnies are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped unless otherwise stated

PLEASE think carefully before taking on a rabbit as a pet. Re-homing Centres all over the country are absolutely over-run with unwanted bunnies.  We have a massive waiting list of rabbits to come in to the care of the Branch - we simply cannot take them all as we do not have the facilities.  There is a tendency for people to think of rabbits as good pets for children, they are quite simply not.  They have a tendency to scratch and bite (especially if mishandled) and as we all know 'the novelty' soon wears off and the rabbit is condemned to a life of misery in a hutch at the bottom of the garden.  Rabbits deserve better than this.  Of course, rabbits can make lovely pets for responsible owners, if you are sure that you can give a pair of our bunnies the kind of life they deserve then we'd be very happy to hear from you.

We do recommend that ALL rabbits should be neutered especially females, as they are at risk of ovarian and womb cancers if they are not.

Rabbits are social creatures and should be re-homed in pair or to live as a pair - our rabbits will be homed in pairs, or to make up a pair.

A pair of rabbits require a minimum cage floor area of 1.65 m / 18 ft square - height of 75cm / 2ft 6 inches.

A pair of guinea pigs require a cage floor area of 0.74 m / 8 ft square -height of 37.5cm / 15 inches.

For more info refer to our hutch and cage sizes page
