More about Hortensia:

Clint and Hortensia are a brother and sister pair born at the end of February. They are looking for a new home together after they were rescued from a property with over 60 rabbits living free range in their own filth. The conditions were truly shocking and many of the bunnies we admitted from the case had been badly beaten up by each other. Sadly Clint came off quite badly and is missing the tips of both ears, but thankfully they are now fully healed and he doesn’t seem to care! After a couple of months in foster care the pair are thriving, whilst still a little small for their age the vet is happy with their weight gain and now that they are vaccinated and microchipped they are ready for adoption.

Here is what their foster mum has to say about them: “Clint and Hortensia (Holly for short) are gorgeous, sassy and affectionate bunnies. As soon as you walk into the room they race up to the edge of their pen to try and get to you and will often put their tiny noses through the bars for a little tickle. When in their own space they both love strokes and head-rubs and will settle down into ‘miniature loaves’; you will definitely get bored of it before they do! When they’re out of their run they’re much more into exploring everything around them. Holly will choose to run around rather than sit on your lap but Clint will gladly stay close to you for some kisses and cuddles. Even when just walking up and down beside their pen they will run alongside you - they could be looking for food but I choose to believe they’re just waiting for some attention! As they are both so keen for affection all of the time they really need to be house rabbits so they can benefit from your company.

Clint especially is so keen on being cuddled and fussed over that if you put him down too soon he’ll thump to let you know he wasn’t done! He has become an expert in jail-breaking, so would definitely need a lot of space, ideally their own room so he doesn’t have anything to escape from. Even when he has escaped his run as soon as I walk into the room he runs up to my feet for some cuddles so he isn’t hard to find! I believe that the more space they have, the happier they will be to come up and sit on laps for some strokes. The only thing that currently holds them back is that they’re so keen to investigate everything. They are clever buns and can get bored quite easily, so need lots of toys and things to entertain them. Holly even seems to have the ability of recall and when out during free-roam time we can call her name and she will come running back. They are both quite fluffy, so will need regular brushing which we are still trying to get them accustomed to, but they don't seem to mind as much if there are greens or pellets involved. If you’re looking for some cute, affectionate bunnies to join your family that will keep you entertained for hours on end then these are definitely the ones for you.”


Clint and Hortensia are looking for a fun filled enclosure within the home packed with toys and endless amounts of hay. They would be best suited to a home with children of secondary school age. The pair are not yet neutered but this will be done by the branch once they are old and large enough.

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.
