More about Baloo:
Baloo is a big heap of grey fluff around 1 year old. He is looking for a new home after he was rescued from poor, cramped conditions where he wasnít even been given any regular food! Thankfully he was removed before any lasting damage was done and after having a health check by an rabbit specialist vet he has since been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Baloo is a friendly chap who comes to greet everyone who enters his pen. He is a confident chap who enjoys a stroke and is cheeky enough to nudge you out o the way if he thinks you are in his way! He is on the large side so picking him up isnít easy but heís placid enough to give him a quick once over without too much of a fuss. We know that Baloo will make a great bunny company, following you around the house, giving you 'rude' nudges and casually climbing over you without even realising it!
Baloo is looking for a home either indoors or out with a neutered female. He was neutered on the 18th of January so can be reserved for bonding from the 1st of March. Please note we will only reserve rabbits 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.
