More about Poppet:
Poppet has been with us 4 months. She is a baby bunny that has survived against all odds and to say she has stolen our hearts and heads is an understatement. Some of you may be familiar with her mother Anita’s story? She was bought at a market for £2 to save her being bought by a regular for £1 for his casserole pot. Anita had 7 babies and Poppet was the runt.
Poppet nearly expired twice in her early days and it was only timing, luck and the skill of a rabbit specialist that saved her each time. To be honest we never thought she would make it out of kittenhood so to see her at 4 months of age is just a miracle. We didn’t rush to rehome her, instead kept her with her mum that bit longer than normal. But Anita had other ideas and had, understandably, had enough of being a mum so we had to separate. We couldn’t bear seeing little Poppet on her own so she went into foster care and it is here that she has thrive beyond our wildest dreams. This is what her foster mum has to say about her:
“Poppet is a very confident and active bunny who adores her grub! She can be found waiting at the door every time she sees us and loves attention, especially if it involves getting some food! She likes to jump on top of things such as cardboard boxes and likes a lot of space to run around in. As she craves attention it would be great if she could be bonded with a placid, neutered male bunny for company, alternatively to live with someone who is home most of the day. She is easy to handle and enjoys cuddles but doesn't like to sit still for long, after all she’s a young lady with things to do!”
Poppet is the perfect house bunny looking for a forever home. She will be fine to live with children although she can mistake fingers for food sometimes!

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 adopter’s 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.
