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 super cute little man Fred, who is a small to medium sized up eared bunny. He is approximately 4-5 months old.

Fred came into our care after he was abandoned by his owner. 

Fred is super inquisitive and nosey! He loves to be involved in whatever you are doing! He is very much a hands off bunny and panics when picked up or restrained, this is something that can be worked on. 

For such a small bunny Fred has a huge jump in him! He is very agile and very intelligent so will need a large secure new home with plenty of enrichment to keep his mind busy.

Fred is brilliantly litter trained and loves his hay, he now enjoys a variety of fresh greens aswell. 

Fred has been neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped and is now ready to find his forever home where he will be bonded with a neutered female rabbit.

Meet our lovely brother and sister pair Roly and Thunder.

Roly and Thunder are now 11 months old and are looking for their forever home together. They are English Spot cross bunnies so are very intelligent and fairly agile bunnies.
Both are friendly, confident and inquisitive bunnies.

Rolly is a little more out going than Thunder and is into everything. Thunder watches what she’s up to and then he joins in.

They love their hay and have great appetites. Both use their litter trays. They’re very close bunnies who enjoy snuggling together.

Roly and Thunder have both been neutered, they're fully vaccinated and are both microchipped.

Minimum size set up of 60sqft required, they have never lived in a traditional hutch so an avairy style/shed and run set up would be preferable.

Introducing the beautiful Storm.

Storm is a lion head cross lop female bunny approximately 18 months to 2 years old.

Storm came into our care via an rspca inspector after her owner was taken into hospital and would no longer be able to care for her. Storm had been living a solitary life in a small indoor cage in a room on her own. 

Storm was a mix of absolutely terrified and extremely hormonal with a fair bit of territorial aggression thrown in when she arrived with us, it was clear she had had very little socialisation. Storm settled in our care for a couple of weeks before she was neutered. She has been in foster care for a few months now giving her hormones a chance to settle, for her to learn how to be a rabbit and build her confidence. 

 

Storm is a fabulous hay eater,  she loves her greens now aswell. She is brilliant with her litter training.

Storm has been neutered, she is fully vaccinated and microchipped, she is now ready to find her forever home.

Storm is looking for an adult only home who will be confident but kind with her, she is looking to be bonded with a neutered male rabbit, he should be calm and none confrontational to allow Storm to lower her defences and her new owner must be patient and not rush the bonding to allow Storm time to feel safe in her new home.

Introducing the beautiful Clover. Clover is a medium sized up eared cross breed bunny approximately a year old.

Clover came into our care via an Rspca inspector from a home of 27 bunnies, they were all being kept in crowded conditions where breeding had gotten out of control.

Clover came to us as a very anxious and quite defensive little bun. Over the past few weeks she has grown into such a friendly, inquisitive rabbit which has been lovely to see.

As soon as you go into her room, she is up at the side of her enclosure to say hello and to say 'have you brought me food?'

She loves her food and is a good hay eater. Clover has suffered mild gut stasis twice since coming into our care, due to her poor diet before coming to us and all the stress of the changes. Since she has settled in and by sticking to a diet of good quality hay, readigrass and spring greens, she has had no recent problems.

Like many buns she is still not a fan of being picked up, but she does like a little head stroke. With a bit of time she would make such a lovely pet. We feel she would be best suited to an adult only home or home with older children.

Clover has been neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. She is looking for a home where she will be bonded with a neutered male 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 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.
