More about Lionel:

Lionel is an absolute dreamboat who is happy to satisfy our need for bunny cuddles when no-one else will oblige! He’ll sit back in our arms and enjoy the attention as we tell him how perfect he is. He’s confident and happy hopping around us, especially when we are doing the rounds with the veggies. It didn’t take him long to figure out extra dried grass is given to those who at least pretend to love us! He’s a smart boy who we just adore.

Lionel was found walking along a main road! Whether he escaped or was abandoned we will never know as no-one has come forward to claim him. He is such a perfect lad they’d he make a brilliant house rabbit. Lionel has been neutered (on 20th June), vaccinated and microchipped and we estimate him to be around 1 year old. He can be bonded from the end of July/early Aug but we are unable to reserve for more than 7 days. We have a unique bunny bonding scheme which you can read more about on our branch website.

FYI the yellow staining on his fur is only temporary and been caused by a ‘stain’ that is routinely used to check the health of eyes. Lionel’s are in tip top shape.

Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet him!

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.
