More Details:

Chester is a roughly 1 year old castrated smoothcoat boar who came from a rescue of over 100 animals. He was residing very unhappily with a group of unneutered boars. Lots of fighting, bickering and disharmony reigned so we separated Chester straight away to give the poor lad a break!

Chester certainly is a big lad, which means there is plenty to love! This is what his foster family have to say about him:
“When Chester first came to live with us we didn’t hear a peep out of him for the first couple of weeks. Since then he has really come out of his shell and showing to be quiet head strong and a funny little character. Chester is most playful around meal times when he hears the fridge door open or the russling of packets of veg. He will sit at the gate of his cage wheeking and sometimes even popcorns with excitement. Another favourite pastime would be rearranging boxes and toys in his cage. He will do this every day and it is quite funny to watch. Chester also loves to run down the sleeve of your jumper / cardigan or under a blanket on the sofa for a cuddle.”

Chester really needs a female piggy pal or two, so if you have any lonely piggy ladies he is ready for pairing now, as he was castrated on 20th November 2017. Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 or email rspcamcr_salford@btconnect.com to meet him!

Details: · All of our rabbits are micro-chipped, neutered and vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). To ensure rabbits are protected from these common diseases, VHD needs repeating every year and in some areas Myxomatosis needs repeating every 6 months, otherwise annually. We undertake a home visit for each rabbit prior to adoption; we aim to do this within one week of each reservation placed. We ask for an adoption fee of £40 per rabbit, £75 for a bonded pair. Rabbits are highly sociable mammals and should ideally live with another. Both rabbits must be neutered regardless of their sex, this is not only to prevent unwanted litters but also promotes good health long term and keeps hormone levels to a minimum. Adopted rabbits living on their own may only be re-homed indoors as house rabbits, requiring a lot of human attention and additional stimulation. When a rabbit is to be bonded with a potential adopter’s rabbit, we ask that their rabbit is both neutered and up to date with vaccinations against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). The best companion match when bonding two rabbits is a neutered male with a neutered female. In most instances, all initial bonding sessions will be carried out under RSPCA supervision to gauge how the rabbits will potentially get on together. When rabbits are to live outdoors then the RSPCA minimum size requirements for a hutch are 6ft x 2ft x 2ft - sheds are an ideal option. With rabbits requiring a minimum of 4-5 hours exercise every day, a secure run permanently attached to the hutch/shed is ideal. We are a registered charity: 232255.
