More about Shirley:
Shirley is a larger than life character who will fill any home with her fun, love and antics. Shirley is approximately 18 months old and has been signed over to the RSPCA. The small animals in the home (including her) were found to be living in inadequate conditions. Shirley is a large lop rabbit and was being kept in a 3ft hutch with just a flimsy metal pen to exercise in. Unsurprisingly she was always escaping and straying so now she is with us to find a home that will worship this wonderful wabbit.
From the moment we all met Shirley we knew we had the most fantastic personality on our hands. She oozes confidence like you wouldn’t believe, she bustles around and doesn’t care two hoots if you are in the way, and she is not backward in coming forward when she wants something. Perhaps best described as a diva, this bunny girl would be right up there in our top ten of who we’d want to adopt if we had any space left in our homes that is!
Shirley is incredibly beautiful and endearing and we find her character simply addictive! However, she is not for the feint hearted so you probably need to be as equally confident as her and happy to share your home with her, or rather you share Shirley’s home! Ideally she will be rehomed as a house rabbit with her own room or with free access to lots of space. She was neutered on 6th February and will be ready for bonding with a neutered male from the beginning of March. Please note we can only reserve animals 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 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.
