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.

Rabbit care advice

Getting ready for your RSPCA rescue rabbit

Due to changes in the way we complete our VAT Return, as a result of VAT changes at RSPCA HQ, we are now required to clearly display any VAT in our Rehoming Fees and Rehoming Documentation.

Generally our rescue animals are free of VAT, but some which come to us for rehoming via the RSPCA Inspectorate may be liable to VAT.

In all cases, the rehoming fee will be as shown on our website and will include any VAT where applicable

Adoption fees are non-refundable, except under exceptional circumstances at the Branch's discretion.

Our adoption fees are £50 for a single rabbit and £95 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. After your application We will arrange to visit your home to discuss your new rabbit(s) with you prior to adoption and answer any further questions you may have about rehoming. During the home visit, we can ensure the home is suitable, meet any existing rabbits and pets you may have and advise on preparing your home and garden, removing potential dangers, buying appropiate food, bedding, and toys.

If you currently have a pet rabbit’s you wish to bond they will all need to be neutered and up to date with their vaccinations against Myxomatosis and RVHD 1 & 2.

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

For a pair of small to medium sized rabbits, they will need 24 hour access to a secure minimum sized set up of 60sqft (3mx2mx1m) all on one level, which should include a minimum sized bedroom area of 6ftx2ftx2ft. This should ideally be situated on a concrete or flagged base. All wire needs to be galvanised wire mesh (16G 13mmx13mm) not chicken wire. For large or giant bunnies minimum size set ups will need to be bigger than above.

Before buying any set ups please check the suitability with us first. The more space they will have, the better for the rabbit’s health and happiness.

Please be aware we will never rehome a single rabbit to live alone. Rabbits require companionship and should live in at least a pair. Whilst there are rare exceptions where we may have a rabbit that has to live on its own (with the advice from a vet or behavioural specialist) we do require a home where the owners can spend a large amount of time with the rabbit and the rabbit isn’t left alone for long periods.

We are here to support you and your rabbits for the rest of the rabbit’s life so we are always here to help.

If you would like to offer any of our rabbits a new home or would like more information about rabbit care please contact Lauren on Rabbits@rspca-altrincham.org.uk
