More Details:

Eight week old baby Otis came into our care along with his parents and brother 6 weeks ago. They had sadly been abandoned when their owner moved out. The brothers were the best of friends until recently when poor Otis was picked on by his brother so much that we had to separate them. We subsequently tried reintroducing them but to no avail.

Otis is a quiet piggy compared to his cocky brother and confident father. He is used to being handled but you only really see his braves when it is veggies time, or at least when he reckons it is veggie time. He seems desperate for a adult piggy pal to huddle up to so we are on the search for an adopter with placid adult boar for him to live with. Ideally who has lived happily with a male piggy before.

Otis has been health checked by a specialist vet and has the all clear. Once old enough the branch will arrange for him to be castrated or a voucher of £60 will be provided. This is to ensure he can have a future living with either gendered piggies should he lose his companion.

Otis is used to living indoors in a 6 x 2ft c and c cage (google for housing inspiration!). He is looking for a similar sized set up but we will consider a shed or garage type sheltered outdoor space too. If you have a lonely adult boar then please get in touch. We can offer advice on introductions and a step by step bonding guide. Please call 0161 737 6600 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 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.
