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

 

How cute is our little Treacle?

Treacle came into our care as an unclaimed stray. She is only about 5 months old. We believe she is a dwarf lop.

Treacle is such a happy little rabbit, she loves other rabbits and can often be seen binkying around her run. Treacle loves her tunnels and toys to play with. She is happy to be stroked and fussed and is an inquisitive little girl, she can spook at sudden movements and loud noises but that is natural for a rabbit.

Treacle has been neutered, vaccinated against myxomatosis and vhd1 (she is due her vhd2 vaccine on 15th February) and microchipped. She is looking for a home where she will be bonded with a neutered male rabbit.

This lovely lady is Thumper. She is a dwarf lop aged approximately 1-2 years old. Thumper came into our care after her owner could no longer cope caring for the number of rabbits they had 'rescued'.

Thumper is a nosey inquisitive girl, she was a little shy for the first couple of days but soon settled and started to enjoy her new space and freedom. Thumper is really well litter trained. She is an active girl and would love lots of toys to play with and keep her occupied.

Thumper can live outside or inside, as you can see from the photos she's very comfortable being inside, she literally 'flopped' and made herself comfortable 5 minutes into her photo shoot!

Thumper has been neutered vaccinated against myxomatosis and vhd1 (she is due her vhd2 vaccine on 21st feb) and microchipped. Thumper is looking for a home where she will be bonded with a neutered male rabbit.

How adorable is our lovely Ebony!?

Ebony is a Rex rabbit with the most beautiful velvet like coat, she is approximately 2 years old.

Ebony came into our care after she was found as a stray, no owner was found so she is now looking for a new forever home.

Ebony is neutered, fully vaccinated against myxomatosis vhd1 and vhd2 and she is also microchipped. Ebony is looking for a home where she will be bonded with a neutered male rabbit.

Ebony is a friendly bunny, she is a little shy initially but once settled she starts to relax and will take food from you and does enjoy the odd stroke. She can sometimes be a little over enthusiastic when feeding her and will grab the veg out of your hands. Ebony is quickly learning what a litter tray is for and she is becoming a clean bunny.

Our gorgeous fluffy angora boy Willow is back up for adoption.

After a failed bonding this 5 year old little man has been returned to our care, and he has decided that he'd really quite like to be a solo house bunny going forward, as bonding is a bit too stressful when you can't see who you're being introduced to! Therefore he is looking for an indoor home where he will have free reign, with lots of cuddles and grooming always available to him from his human companions.

Due to his poor vision (he can see, but not particularly well) he would be best suited to a household without any young children or other pets who might startle him. He's a very sweet bunny who is very happy to sit by your side on the sofa, but also loves a good explore, and once he knows his way around his surroundings there's no stopping him! Willow is neutered, microchipped and VHD1/VHD2/Myxo vaccinated, and all ready to find his hopefully forever home!

Our gorgeous Sky and Peanut are now ready to find their forever homes.  They are medium sized up eared bunnies approximately 5 months old now.

Sky and Peanut came into our care as part of a larger group of bunnies. They came from a home where breeding had got out of control and their owner had just left them to go abroad for a few months, they were also being fed a completely unsuitable diet.

Sky and Peanut were only 5 weeks old when they arrived in our care and have thankfully suffered no ill effects from their past, they are strong healthy baby bunnies who have an amazing appetite and enjoy a very healthy diet.

Sky is a blue eyed white, she is the most confident of the group. Peanut is the male, he is the smallest of group.

Both bunnies are very similar in personality, like most bunnies they not to keen on being picked up but once you scoop them up they seem happy enough to sit and have a short cuddle. They are more interested in running and playing than being picked up etc! They love their food and are tempted to sit still for a short stroke whilst tucking into their favourite greens.

Sky and Peanut have been neutered, vaccinated against myxomatosis vhd1 and vhd2 and microchipped. They are now ready to find their forever homes either together or to be bonded with a neutered rabbit existing in a potential new home.

Aspen and Ember are sisters and are just over a year old. They have been neutered and vaccinated and microchipped and are looking for a new home together. Here is what their foster mum has to say about them:

The friendliest foster bunnies we have had. I cannot believe they have not found their forever homes yet; they really would make fabulous pets for someone.
These two really are best friends; always by each other’s side and enjoying chasing each other around their run.  They are very happy rabbits and enjoy their playtime together.

As soon as you pass by their hutch they run straight to the side to greet you.  When I open the door to their hutch, they get very excited and can’t wait for a bit of a fuss.
They are really easy to pick up as they will come straight to you and really enjoy a stroke.  It is funny when I try to clean out their hutch while they are still in it, they keep coming up and nudging my hand hinting that they want a bit of attention.

They love their food!  They mainly have hay and spring greens which they enjoy but they do love a banana as a treat.  I would say this is their favourite.
I am trying to think of some of their dislikes and I actually can’t think of any!  They just love everything.  I really do think that someone would be lucky to have these bunnies in their lives and they will be very much missed when they go to their forever home.

Meet our gorgeous boys Dazzle Shimmer and Sparkle. The boys are approximately 4 and a half months old now and will be medium sized bunnies when they are fully grown.

Dazzle Shimmer and Sparkle came into our care along with their mum and 5 other bunnies. They came from a home where breeding had got out of control and their owner had just left them to go abroad for a few months, they were also being fed a completely unsuitable diet.

The boys were only 3 weeks old when they arrived in our care and have thankfully suffered no ill effects from their past, they are strong bouncy healthy baby bunnies who have an amazing appetite and enjoy a very healthy diet.


Dazzle with the grey ears, is the next most confident of the group he is a little explorer with zero fear.


Shimmer a blue eyed white is a bit on the quieter side, but he holds his own and is front of the queue when it comes to food!


Sparkle also a blue eyed white is the shyest of the bunch he was very much a mummy's boy.


All the boys have been neutered, fully vaccinated against myxomatosis vhd1 and vhd2, microchipped and health checked by an exotics specialist vet. They are looking for new homes either in groups or pairs or singularly to bond with an existing neutered vaccinated female rabbit in the home.

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 Dwarf 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
