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 £45 for a single rabbit and £80 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

 

How gorgeous is our boy Logan!?

Logan is a dwarf lop adult male bunny. We have guestimated his age to be around 3-5 years old.

Logan came into our care via the rspca inspectorate, he came from a home with lots of other animals. Sadly we had no history with any of the animals that came into our care.

Logan looks like he has had a pretty rough life so far, he is missing the ends of both his ears and has scars all long the tips, he is missing most of his tail and has a scar on his lip. BUT he is the sweetest cheekiest fella! We adore him!

Logan needed a dental the day after he arrived in our care, his incisors were overgrown and one of his top teeth had snapped off, his remaining front teeth needed burring down to level them up to enable him to eat comfortably and properly.

We have monitored his incisors for several months deciding whether it would be best to remove his incisors or leave him as he is. He has a slightly abnormal bottom incisor but has remained stable and his teeth have worn in an acceptable way for the last 4-5 months so we have decided it's best for him to keep his front teeth and to find a forever home with a guardian who can continue to give him the best diet and monitor him regularly and keep a close eye incase those teeth change in the future.

Logan just loves life now ❤ he has come on so much since coming into our care. He loves his freedom and pinching carrots off the resident dog in his foster home! When you walk into his pen he tugs on your trousers or tries to climb up your legs incase there's a treat on offer. He's a brilliant hay eater and is immaculately clean with his litter training.

Logan has been neutered, he's fully vaccinated against myxomatosis vhd1 and vhd2 and is microchipped. Logan is looking for an experienced rabbit home where he will be bonded with a neutered female rabbit.

Meet Hazel & Fiver, a gorgeous pair of bunnies who came into our care via RSPCA Stapely Grange. With their long legs, big ears, lean bodies and skittish natures we originally thought they might be wild rabbits, but after a few weeks in a foster home they've started to come out of their shells and show off their cheeky bun sides, so we think they probably just have a good portion of wild heritage in their genes. 

Fiver is the most confident of the pair, and you can guarantee he'll be at the front of his enclosure the minute he hears the rustle of a bag of kale! He's nosey and likes to observe everything going on, and he'll happily take food from your hand if it's one of his favourites (brussels are a particular love at the moment!) and let you have a little stroke of his head. Hazel is a bit more reserved, and she will let Fiver take the lead and investigate new people and things first before she joins in. She can usually be coaxed out with the favourite kale bag rustle too, but she's more likely to run away again once she's grabbed a bit and taken it with her.

.

 

Hazel & Fiver are both fantastic hay eaters, and their favourite game is pulling the hay rack over so they can get to the best bits first! They're quite neat and tidy with their litter tray, so could probably be rehomed as either indoor or outdoor bunnies, although if indoor they would prefer a quiet household.

Although handleable when necessary they both prefer not to be picked up and can get quite frightened if they are, so they would be best suited to an adult / older children environment where they can choose how and when to interact with their humans. They're not large buns but with their athletic bodies they love to run, jump, climb and binky, so they're looking for a home with plenty of space to do this and display all their natural behaviours (minimum 60sq ft floor space, and ideally more).

Hazel and Fiver have both been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated against VHD1, VHD2 and Myxomatosis, and now they're just waiting for their perfect forever home together

 

 

Meet our very own love story stars Patch and Smudge

Patch and Smudge came into our care along with 18 of their babies via an rspca inspector from a home where they had been allowed to breed and breed, their needs weren't met and they were being fed a completely inappropriate diet of take away left overs and meat.

Smudge had a young litter of kits she was feeding and was already pregnant again when she arrived in our care. Patch was super attentive and loved his family but sadly we had to separate him as he wasn't neutered.

Once Smudge had finished rearing her babies, she was given a couple of weeks to rest before she was neutered.  Smudge has had snuffles a couple of times which has responded well to a short course of antibiotics but her new owner must be aware of this and to monitor her in the future.

 

Patch was neutered pretty much straight away and our plan was always to rebond the couple once Smudge had full filled her mother duties and was neutered and healed herself.  This took a little longer than originally planned due to Patch suffering a seizure. He was taken to the vets straight away and admitted for a couple of days for tests and to monitor. All his tests came back clear so the plan was to monitor in his foster home for 3 months to see if he had any more seizures. We haven't witnessed any more since his initial one and hopefully it's unlikely he will but we cannot be 100% sure he won't have another.

Due to their history Patch and Smudge are looking for an experienced rabbit home with access to a good rabbit savvy vet, full vet history will be provided to the new owner.

 

Smudge can be a little shy initially, she loves her food so treats are the best way to win her round. Patch is a sweetheart, he is such a lovely gentle boy and loves attention. They are both active buns who like lots of interactive toys to keep them occupied. They are both great hay eaters and are good with using their litter tray.

Patch and Smudge are now both neutered fully vaccinated against myxomatosis vhd1 and vhd2. They are looking for their forever home together

Introducing mum and daughter pair Blossom and Daffodil.
Blossom and Daffodil came into our care via an rspca inspector several months ago after they had been found abandoned in a field.

This pair are just FULL of character! They both know their own mind and are very agile, Daffodil especially! They are escape artists so need a very secure home, they can also jump very high! Blossom takes her mum role quote seriously and can be quite bossy with Daffodil sometimes but they do get on very well together aslong as no other rabbits come near.

They have been in our care for quite a few months now due to Blossom having a few health issues we have needed to treat. They both seem to be stable now, are maintaining weight well and have been signed off from the vets as ready to find their forever home.

Blossom and Daffodil are confident friendly bunnies but they do not like to be picked up, they like their freedom to come and go as they please. They wouldn't be suitable bunnies to be rehomed with young children as they can be a little forceful if they don't get what they want.

The girls are brilliantly litter trained. They do occasionally still over produce ceacotrophs, this will need to be monitored and cleaned up accordingly. They are fantastic hay eaters and love a healthy diet of a variety of fresh veggies.

Both girls have been neutered, fully vaccinated against myxomatosis vhd1 and vhd2 aswell as microchipped. Blossom and Daffodil are looking for an experienced rabbit home with access to a good rabbit savvy vet.

Meet the lovely Tillie and Ava, who are medium sized cross breed bunnies around 3 years old.

Tillie and Ava have had a sad, but all to common, past. They have been passed from home to home living in a very small hutch with very little room to move.

Ava (white bunny) was extremely overweight when she arrived, she is now a healthy weight but still has a big dewlap.

Tillie and Ava have been health checked by a rabbit savvy vet, neutered, fully vaccinated against myxomatosis, vhd1 and vhd2 and microchipped. They are looking for an experienced rabbit home.

Tillie and Ava are really friendly and come running to greet you, mainly to see what treats you have on offer! They are typical bunnies and do not like being picked up.

  They both had muscle wastage when then arrived due to living in a small space, they are improving everyday and loving the freedom they now have. Tillie especially loves having the space to play with toys, her favourite is a ball with a bell inside.

Tillie and Ava are brilliantly litter trained and are fabulous hay eaters, they both are now enjoying a variety of veggies and a healthy diet
 

 

How handsome are brothers Benjamin and Roger!!

These gorgeous boys came into our care as their owner could no longer give them the care they deserve.

They were both unneutered and had been spraying each other LOTS so much so their coats had turned yellow!

They were completely un litter trained when they arrived, now they have been neutered they are improving and are almost there

Benjamin and Roger are English spot bunnies approximately 18 months to 2 years old. English spots are very intelligent, very agile bunnies so they'll need a large enclosure with lots of enrichment to keep them entertained.

They are super friendly confident boys who love human attention, they will come straight over to you for a fuss, and to check if you have any food on offer!

Benjamin and Roger are inseparable and are looking for their forever home together.

They have both been health checked by a rabbit savvy vet, neutered, fully vaccinated against myxomatosis, vhd1 and vhd2 and microchipped.

Mouse is now 7months old, born 10.4.20 and is such a sweet natured boy, he is the smallest of the litter but loves to climb and investigate everything. 

He loves his food and is a brilliant hay eater. He is very clean and uses his litter tray to wee but still leaves droppings everywhere! He doesn’t really like to be picked up but if you're quick can get a quick stroke, but he never stays still for too long, wanting to be off tearing around and having fun. He is a fantastic little bun who is very special and a pleasure to look after. 

He has been neutered, fully vaccinated and is microchipped. He is looking for a home where he can possibly be bonded with a neutered, fully vaccinated female rabbit.

Meet our handsome giant New Zealand White boy Wilson. Wilson is approximately 8 months old (Sept 2020)

Wilson came into our care along with his brother Wyatt, they were very scared shut down petrified boys who had obviously had very little to no handling or socialisation. They were signed over into our care after coming from a home where they were raised for meat.

Since being in our care Wilson has begun to blossom, he is now more confident and won't run to hide at the sight or sound of a human! He is starting to become excited at veggie time and will eat in their humans presence now. They are still very much a working progress but are doing really well in the short time they have been in our care.

Wilson is already over 2.5kg, he will be a BIG bunny so will need a very large home. A traditional hutch and run set up would NOT be suitable for them. A large shed and run style set up would be ideal.

The boys are brilliant hay eaters and will demolish a huge amount each day. They are also really well litter trained. Being young bunnies they will need a home with lots of enrichment to keep their minds occupied.

Wilson is looking for a forever home where he will be bonded with a neutered female rabbit. He has been neutered, fully vaccinated against myxomatosis, vhd1 and vhd2, he is also microchipped

A little update on Wilson from his foster mum: 

Wilson is adorable but he does have a mind if his own, he likes things done his way, even down to moving his litter tray if it’s not in the right place. He loves to jump and climb, so everything has been moved away from fences as he will climb up and jump over.

He’s a very quick learner, he worked out how to get his door and the fence panel open so he could get out. He uses his litter tray and enjoys hay & veggies. He knows the sound of his treatbox and the rustle of the veggie wrappers and will come running. He’s getting better at being stroked, he will sit for longer before moving away and even then he doesn’t run away he just moves. He’s easy to handle. 

I think he’s wonderful, he’s got a big personality and knows what he wants and deserves to get what he wants.
