More about Norton:
Roman is a handsome fella of a generous size. He is around 2 years old and is looking for a new home after being rescued from inadequate and cramped conditions; multiple rabbits were being kept in tiny cages with very little provision but thankfully Roman is now with us and after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped he is ready for adoption.
Roman came in to as a shy boy, clearly traumatised by his previous life experience, but forward 3 months and he has become a staff favourite! Roman has won us round with his sweet, gentle nature and his large, lovable, wayward ears. He will now hop over to say hello and have a stroke, in a sweet, unassuming way. Being black and a laid back character we are worried his ample charms are being overlooked. He is such a loving lad with oodles of potential and once in his forever home we know he will simply shine.
Roman was neutered on the 6th December so is now ready for bonding with a neutered lady friend. He would be suitable to live in a large outdoor enclosure with a new beau or indoors in a relaxed home environment.

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.
