More about Douglas:

Who can resist a young ginger boy?! We certainly canít which is why Douglas holds a soft spot in our hearts. Heís around one year old and was found stray back in January with no sign of an owner. Douglas has been with so long because he has been on a long journey of recovery. As in quite typical with young rabbits he has had a liver infection, but at such a young age the liver rapidly regenerates and we now have a perfectly healthy bunny boy with normal liver and kidney readings. The vet is now happy to sign him off for adoption and we are exceedingly excited and proud to share him with you all. Douglas is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and definitely ready for his forever home.

Douglas is a sweet little chap who despite being cautious around new people is always gentle and never grumpy. He has gradually grown in confidence around us and when given a few moments to settle heíll start nose twitches and the urge to investigate gets the better of him. He will gradually come out of whatever hiding place heís darted to, 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 but he tolerates health checks and complies with whatever we need him to do. We try and take things slowly and keep interaction on ground level, which to be fair is something most of our rabbits require. We have all grown very fond of Douglas and so want him to find a loving new home, ideally with a ladybun companion to boost his confidence.

Douglas is looking for a home either indoors or out. Heíd be best suited to a home where he can play the day away and hop around freely. Please see our branch website for details about our special bunny bonding scheme.

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.
