More Details:

This beautiful pair of girls came into our care back in November. They had lived in a stressful environment in ever-changing groupings and mis-sexing had led to breeding out of control and over 70 animals in the home. These girls were very timid on arrival and we weren't even sure how long they had been living together. Over a couple of weeks they appeared to adjust to living together and become friends. Then came the hard bit, getting them to trust humans.
It was a joyous day when Pamela (brown and ginger) first started to wheek for her food. She just burst into song and hasn't stopped since. Whenever their foster family are chopping up veg they now both start chirping away. Pamela is definitely the braver of the two and is ok at being handled. Pippa remains wary of humans and does not enjoy being handled.

These days the girls will come out of hiding and eat their food in our company. They have fantastic appetites for hay and we don't know how they get through so much! They also enjoy a range of vegetables to satisfy their need for Vitamin C. They have recently had a routine check up and are now fully grown pigs.
The girls have been kept indoors all this time but if the weather remains mild they could go to live outdoors. They are used to an indoor cage with a floor space of 160cms in length. The foster carer is happy to donate the cage to their adopter, and it can be collapsed into two parts. If looking to live outdoors they will need a sizable space, equivalent to what they are currently used to.

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 adopterís 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.
