More about Douglas:
Who can resist a young ginger boy?! We certainly canít which is why Douglas has been getting plenty of attention since arriving in our care in January. He is 6 months old and was found stray with no sign of an owner. He is now neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and ready for his forever home.
Douglas is a sweet little chap who is really coming out of himself. He has an endearing personality which is shining brighter day by day. He is growing in confidence around us and after a few moments to settle heíll start nose twitches and the urge to investigate gets the better of him. He likes to eat, sniff and stretch out and will slowly start to socialise once heís used to your presence. Heís obviously not been handled much and is a little wriggly during health checks and so interaction is kept on his level. To be fair this is pretty typical of most bunnies.
Douglas is looking for a home either indoors or out with a neutered female bunny companion. He was neutered on the 3rd January so can be reserved for bonding from the 14th February. Heíd best suit a home where he can play the day away and hop around freely. Please note we will only reserve a rabbit for 7 days.

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.
