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 £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. We will arrange to visit your home to discuss your new rabbit 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 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 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 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 contact Jo on rspca.alt.cheshire.smallanimals@gmail.com

 

Meet our adorable boy Brody. He's about a year old, and came into our care along with his brother Blake from a home who no longer wanted them. Unfortunately Brody and his brother fell out and had to be separated, so now Brody is looking for a lovely wifebun to be his new companion.

Brody was rather overweight when he first came to us as he had been fed an unsuitable diet, but after a bit of persuasion he's realised that hay and greens are both tasty and good for him, and he's getting much healthier (although he does still have a love for the naughty foods and will hunt them out if they've been hidden away!).

Brody hadn't been handled much in his previous home, so it's taken him a while to trust his fosterers and he's still not sure if he enjoys head rubs or not - he'll come to ask for them but then grunts while they're given! We hope he'll enjoy them more from a bunny companion, and that he'll gradually learn to enjoy human company more too in a patient home who will let him explore and engage at his own pace.

Brody has been vaccinated against Myxomatosis VHD1 and VHD2, and is microchipped and neutered, so now all he needs is a furever home and a wifebun of his own.

Meet our magical Merlin. Merlin is an 18 month old male Rex. 

Merlin was in a sorry state when he arrived, he had swollen bleeding sores on all 4 feet and had spurs on his teeth due to being fed the wrong diet, his nails were also very long and were clipped to a more comfortable length as soon as he arrived with us. 

Merlin was put on antibiotics and antiinflamatories straight away aswell as having cream applied to his feet twice a day. He has healed wonderfully but due to permanent fur loss he will always be susceptible to sore hocks so his new home must have soft cushioned surfaces to keep him comfortable, he will also need cream applying to the bald spots on his feet daily to keep the skin soft and supple.

When Merlin was castrated he also had the spurs on his teeth burred down, he now loves his hay and will happily chomp away all day! He had a dental recheck 6 weeks later and his teeth were still in really good condition so the correct diet of plenty of hay is keeping his teeth in check as it should. 

Merlin is true character! He is very much a people rabbit and he loves a fuss and a stroke, he is more like a dog than a rabbit! He isn't keen on being picked up but will sit for a cuddle once you have him. He is confident friendly boy who learns really quickly! He is immaculately litter trained so would make a wonderful house bunny. He loves his toys and keeping busy.

After spending the first part of his life living in a tiny barren hutch Merlin is loving the space he has to live as a rabbit should!

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

Introducing our lovely wonky Wilbur. Wilbur is a medium sized cross breed boy about 10 months old.

Wilbur came into our care after being passed from home to home.

He is an extra special boy due to his deformities and is looking for an extra special home. Wilbur has a deformed spine causing his body to bend. At the moment this doesn't bother him at all, he is a super active boy. In time as he gets older he will be more susceptible to arthritis and will likely need to be on long term antiinflamatories to help. Access to a good rabbit savvy vet would be essential.

Wilbur is looking for a home all on one level to see him through his life. At the moment he is very agile but as he gets older this may change, also there is a risk due to the curve in his spine that jumping could cause damage.

Wilbur has a wonderful diet and loves his hay, both to eat and to bury himself in! He is also wonderfully litter trained. 

Wilbur is looking for an adult only home as he will need careful handling.

Wilbur would love to be bonded with a neutered female rabbit in his new home.

Wilbur was castrated 5.3.21 so will be ready to bond after 30.4.21. Wilbur has also been fully vaccinated and microchipped.

Meet Tina, a gorgeous lionhead lop who is absolutely bursting with personality!

Tina is a sassy lady who knows her own mind and how she likes things, and her favourite hobbies include rearranging the furniture (when her humans have got the feng shui wrong, obviously), throwing things around, demanding headrubs, eating, and a bit of daily bunstruction (newspapers have a lifespan of approximately 30 minutes, and hay racks are generally pulled over almost immediately).

When Tina first came to us she had spurs on her teeth and was carrying a bit of lockdown weight, but since transitioning onto a good quality diet she has been getting into much better shape, both physically and dentally, and now she just loves to be active and eat all her hay.

Tina would love a home as a free-range house rabbit so she can choose when to race around and when to come to you for snuggles/headrubs, and she's looking for a friendly neutered male to be bonded with. She promises to bring you hours of entertainment in return!

Tina has been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated against Myxomatosis VHD1 and VHD2, so she's all ready to find her forever home - could it be with you?!

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.
