More about Daphne:
Meet our special girl Daphne, she is around 2 years old and has been in our care recuperating since October 2016. She was rescued from a property with 7 rabbits in total, all kept in very poor conditions and being indiscriminately bred from. She was neutered, vaccinated and microchipped by a rabbit specialist vet but after a few weeks she was still deeply distressed so sheís been receiving some extra TLC in foster care.
Daphne has made amazing progress thanks to her foster mum. After being very timid and skittish when she first arrived she is now as confident as most of the rabbits in our care and has even been described as cheeky! Daphne is now approaching people for head strokes and food and when her foster mum goes to clean out her litter tray each day Daphne will hop over and tug on her sleeve if she hasnít brought her something green and tasty! She is also an extremely clean rabbit who does all of her toileting in a tray so is very easy to clean up after.
Daphne has made friends with the neighbourhood cat and will purposely hop over to sit next to him and rub noses through her pen. So we believe she is likely to be up for some bunny companionship. Whilst she avoids being picked up she is never aggressive and she is starting to enjoy human attention more and more but she would prefer living outdoors.
Daphne would be an ideal friend for a neutered male rabbit living outdoors in a spacious enclosure. She is neutered so can now be reserved for bonding. Please note we 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.
