More about Paige:
Paige is a stunning fawn coloured rabbit around 2 years old. She is looking for a new home after she was rescued from a property with over 50 rabbits living in poor conditions. Breeding was out of control and the owner was unable to cope with the situation. Paige came to us with 6 beautiful baby bunnies which have now fled the nest so after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped she is ready to find a home of her own. Paige was reserved for bonding at the end of last year but sadly they didn’t take to one another. We did, however, get a good insight into her character being in a home:
“Well Paige is definitely a clever bunny and loves all her toys and treats. She eats more than any other rabbit I’ve ever known; stripping her 7ft run of grass in a day and making rapid progress across my whole garden! She showed no behaviour relating to burrowing out, but she quickly learnt which doors opened with a little extra effort so she needs a sturdy enclosure or she’ll be off! Paige gained a lot of confidence whilst with us and although like most rabbits she doesn’t particularly like being picked up she will definitely come up to you for food and a head stroke. Paige was completely un-phased by our cat and the goings on of the outdoors.”
Paige is ideally looking for a neutered male rabbit to be bonded with as she is happiest in an outdoor setting. Her new partner needs to be accepting of a bossy, young lass. Her new owner will need to have a good supply of fresh hay and veg and a large secure enclosure to keep her safe.

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.
