There are estimated to be around 1.7 million rabbits kept as pets in the UK making them the third most popular pet. Sadly, despite this rabbits are still one of the most neglected domestic animals. Rabbit are often seen as a good first pet however many people find they are a far bigger commitment than anticipated. 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 have left home or gone off to university as rabbit owners you must be prepared to take full responsibility for the rabbits for life.
All of our rabbits are re homed in bonded pairs or re homed where there is an existing rabbit waiting for a companion.

Rabbit adoption fee
This fee will include:
A suitable outdoor rabbit set up
Rabbits are not designed to live in a confined space. As such we require a minimum hutch size of 6' x 2' x 2', which allows rabbits some room to move, stand on their hind legs and enough space for the food, toilet and sleeping areas to be kept apart. It is commonly accepted that a rabbit should have space for 3 hops, but it is commonly underestimated just how far 3 hops is - our tests show that 3 hops from an average sized rabbit covers 6-7 feet. A hutch should only be a shelter and not the only living space. It should be attached to a secure run of at least 6' x 8'.
Please bear in mind that these recommendations are all minimums - and like many things in life, bigger is better!
