Here are our Rabbits that are ready for rehoming. This webpage is updated regularly.

All our animals who are ready for adoption are also shown on the National RSPCA “Find a Pet” website, where they have lots of free online help and support, if you are considering adopting a pet or have just taken a new animal into your home. We are always happy to give help and advice about re-homing an animal.

https://www.rspca.org.uk/findapet/adopters/-/articleName/Adopers_advice_page

Our adoption fees are £40 for a single rabbit and £75 for a pair of rabbits. Additional donations are greatly appreciated to help us to continue with our work. 

All our rabbits are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. Our rabbits are neutered at 4 months old, so if your chosen rabbit is younger than that, we will organise with you for the rabbit to be neutered once old enough.

We will then arrange to visit your home to discuss your new rabbit with you and answer any further questions you may have about rehoming. During the home visit, we can ensure the home is suitable and advise on preparing your home and garden, removing potential dangers, and buying food, bedding, and toys.

During the home visit, we can discuss bonding your chosen rabbit. Rabbits are happiest in pairs or groups, we won't rehome a single rabbit to live outside alone. A neutered male/ neutered female combination is usually the most successful bond.

If you currently have a pet rabbit, they will need to be neutered and up to date with their vaccinations.

We do occasionally have single bunnies suitable for being a single house rabbit in a home where they will have plenty of human company and will not be left alone for long periods of time.

Ahead of the home visit, you will need to ensure that the rabbit(s) will have plenty of space to move around and stretch freely without restriction to be healthy.

For a pair of medium sized rabbits, living outside, you will need a minimum sized set up of a 6ftx2ftx2ft bedroom area (hutch) with a permanently attached run of 6ftx6ftx2ft, ideally situated on a concrete or flagged base. All wire needs to be galvanised wire mesh not chicken wire. For large or giant bunnies minimum size set ups will need to be bigger than above.

Before buying any set ups you can, if you wish, check the suitability with us first. The more space they will have, the better for the rabbit’s health and happiness. Large and giant breed bunnies will need larger set ups.

We are here to help and support for the rest of the rabbit’s life.

If you would like to offer any of our rabbits a new home please call our Branch Manager Julia Tucker on 0161 286 2503 or email rspca.altrincham.cheshire@googlemail.com

 

Meet our handsome pair of bunnies Flash and Blacky.

Flash and Blacky are brothers and are approximately 18 months old, they are netherland dwarf cross bunnies who are looking for a home together.

Flash and Blacky are friendly bunnies if a little shy until they get to know you! They are wonderfully litter trained. They like plenty of tunnels to run in and out of and toys to chuck around, they also love digging!

Blacky and flash have been neutered vaccinated against myxomatosis, vhd1 and vhd2 and they are microchipped

Meet our very handsome Fred! He is an English spot rabbit aged between 18 month to 2 year old.

Fred came into our care along with a number of other rabbits who were all kept in very small unsuitable dark hutches.

Fred came to us a very very scared traumatised rabbit, his eyes were literally bulging out of his head he was so frightened. He panicked just with us looking at him let alone trying to touch him! What a transformation he has made in the short few months he has been with us!

He is now a happy bouncy energetic young rabbit who is happy to come running over to greet you and see what food you might have on offer, he is nosey and inquisitive and is enjoying life again. As long as you are calm and gentle with him he is also starting to enjoy head rubs but still isn't keen on being picked up (something that with time can be worked on)

Fred and the other rabbits from the same property were being fed a completely unsuitable diet and as a result Fred did have some dental changes and he did need a dental when he was neutered. Since having his dental Fred has started to eat hay but this will need to continue to be encouraged in his new home.

Fred is immaculately clean and was litter trained almost from day one.

Fred is a very active boy who will need plenty of space to run and play and build up all the muscle he has lost from being cooped up in such a tiny space.

Fred has been neutered fully vaccinated and microchipped and is looking to be bonded with a neutered female rabbit

Who remembers River and Mersey the 2 week old bunnies who were dumped in a shoe box soaked in urine?? Well here they are now 5 months old and ready to find their forever home!

River and Mersey have been health checked neutered vaccinated and microchipped and are looking for their new home together ideally as house bunnies but could be rehomed to a suitable set up outside aslong as they are groomed regularly.

River (grey female) and Mersey (black male) are small to medium sized lionhead bunnies. They are confident friendly inquisitive bunnies however like most bunnies they really don't like being picked up. They are improving with their litter training. They have grown up in our care and have been brought up on a healthy diet, they are fantastic hay eaters and they love readigrass in fact they will quite often choose readigrass over their veggies!

Mr Wriggles is a large lop eared boy who is approximately 2 years old.

Mr Wriggles is a friendly boy, he is a little shy initially but he loves his food so is soon won around! Mr Wriggles like most bunnies isn't keen on being picked up but will settle once he knows he is safe.

Mr Wriggles is very well litter trained. He really doesn't like being enclosed so he is looking for a larger home where he will have plenty of space to explore. He loves to dig so if he was rehomed as a house bunny his hutch and run would need to be situated on a concrete or flagged base to make sure he was safe and secure at all times.

Mr Wriggles has been neutered vaccinated and microchipped and is looking to be bonded with a calm submissive neutered female rabbit

Meet our very handsome boys Ant and Dec, who are large lops approximately 3-4 years old.

They came into our care along with several other rabbits after their owner died and remaining family were unable to look after them.

Ant and Dec were living in undersized accommodation and had an unsuitable diet of muesli. As a result of the wrong diet and very little exercise they are both a bit on the chunky side! Plenty of hay is really important for all rabbits to keep their teeth and digestive systems healthy.

Ant and Dec are a little shy at the moment but given time a reassurance they will make fantastic bunnies.

They have been neutered vaccinated and microchipped and are looking for a new home together

Meet our lovely ladies Flora and Fleur, who are small to medium sized up eared cross breed bunnies. Fleur is approximately 10 months old and Flora is approximately 5 months old.

Both bunnies were quite skinny when they first came into our care, having been kept in tiny dirty conditions completely unsuitable for any animal.

Both bunnies have been health checked and are now fully vaccinated, Fleur has been neutered and microchipped, Flora will be neutered and microchipped before she is rehomed and once she gains a little more weight.

Flora and Fleur haven’t had the best start in life so were understandably both very timid when they arrived with us, they are now slowly growing in confidence especially when they know food is on offer! They are looking for a new home that will give them all the love a patience they deserve to feel safe and secure and become the happy friendly bunnies we know they want to be.

Flora and Fleur are very bonded so are looking for their forever home together.

We call these two little and large.  Flora is the bigger bunny and Fleur is so small she almost looks like a Netherland Dwarf; very pretty bunnies who are very close to each other.

These two are still quite nervous but we see their confidence growing all the time; with the extra love and attention they would get in their forever home, this would really help them to come out of their shell.

Flora and Fleur are quite wary but they have gone from hiding away in their hutch to now taking food out of our hands. Fleur is the more confident out of the two and will be the first to come and take her veggies, then Flora will follow her sister.

They currently live in a two story hutch but don’t like to use the ramp so would be better as house bunnies or with a large one storey space to live in.

When it comes to their food, they were quite picky when they arrived but are now enjoying their food more.  They prefer to have readigrass and some timothy hay in their diet and enjoy their leafy greens (spring greens, kale, cauliflower leaves).

They are not fond of being handled at the moment and can be a little difficult to pick up but once you have hold of them are quite calm.

These two are very special bunnies who just need a bit of TLC.
