More Details:

Acorn and Ash arrived in our care in September. They had been found in a box on a busy main road and were absolutely petrified. We moved the boys into a foster home where they could learn to trust people. Overtime they developed in confidence and we have had them both castrated. They are 6 months old now, have double in size since they arrived but are still quite petite for boars. This is what their foster family have to say about them:

'Acorn (brown) and Ash (grey) are a lively pair, who love nothing more than zooming round their pen together and popcorning all over the place. They also love to hide in cardboard boxes and mountains of hay. Every morning and evening they impatiently wait for their food wheeking away together. They will happily take food from your hand and try to steal food from each other. Like most piggies they donít like to be picked up but once held they will calm down.'

The boys currently live in an indoors in large accommodation that gives them plenty of floor space (approximately 180cm x 60cm or 6ft x 2). They need the same sized home with lots of hidey huts and enrichment. They love their veggies and hay! They have come on such a long way and we can't wait to see them move on to their forever to complete their rescue journey. Please call 0161 737 6600 or email rspcamcr_salford@btconnect.com to meet them.

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.
