More about Rita:
Rita is a big and beautiful black rabbit around 2 years old. Sheís found herself in our care after being rescued from inadequate and cramped conditions; multiple rabbits were being kept in tiny cages with very little provision but thankfully Rita is now with us and after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is ready for adoption.
Rita only came to us a short time ago so we are still bonding with her and gaining trust but we can see from our short time together that food is close to her heart, as is being nosey! She likes to keep a close eye on us, maybe itís so sheís ready to run away when we try and health check her or maybe she just likes being part of the action. Like most large ladies she isnít easy to handle and prefers interaction on ground level especially when veg is part of the deal!
Rita was neutered on the 6th December so can be reserved for bonding from the 3rd January. She will require a spacious home with plenty of fresh hay and tasty greens. Rita is not of British Giant size but she is a large lady! Please note we will only reserve rabbits for 7 days at a time.

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.
