More Details:

Solero (mum) and Fab (daughter) are looking for a new home together. Mum was rescued from a home with mixed breed piggies running around in the dozens. We knew Solero would likely have babies and 6 weeks ago we were treated to 4 little babies! Sadly two didn't make it past a few hours but this was probably because mum was so malnourished (as were all the piggies that were rescued, it was desperately sad).

Solero is approximately 6 to 8 months old and Fab is 7 weeks old. They have both had a health check at the vets and are ready to find a home together. Fab has been born in a foster home with a single adult carer, so due to lockdown measures have not had the usual extensive socialising so will benefit from being adopted by a confident handler who has patience to bring them on. They are looking to be rehomed together to live indoors in a min 5 x 2ft pen (ideally a C&C set up, see our website for housing ideas! www.rspca-manchesterandsalford.org.uk). They could potentially be bonded with an existing group of piggies too, again see our website for bonding scheme we offer.

If you would like to offer them a home please email rspcamcr_salford@btconnect.com

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.
