There are estimated to be around 1.7 million rabbits kept as pets in the UK making them the third most popular pet after cats and dogs. Sadly, despite this rabbits are still one of the most neglected domestic animals. Rabbits are a high maintenance pet and parents and carers must be prepared to take full responsibility for them. With a life span of 7-10 years and beyond children will often lose interest long before your rabbit reaches middle age, assuming that the children have not left home or gone off to university by then. Rabbits are completely dependent on their owner to provide for all of their needs, can you commit to this for the next decade?
If you adopt a rabbit from us they will come neutered (or a voucher will be sent at 4 months old), microchipped, vaccinated and ready to begin their new life with you.
We carry out a home-visit prior to adoption and in some cases suggest minor changes that help ensure your home is as pet friendly as possible. We’ll also call or visit afterwards to make sure you and your new pet are adjusting well to your new life together.
How much room does a rabbit need?
Your rabbit needs a suitable hutch of no less than 6ft x 2ft which is permanently attached to a run of at least 6ft x 4ft.
