More about Valentina:

Valentina is a bunny that bears the emotional scars of her previous existence. She was removed from a home of 60 free-roaming, unneutered rabbits. Many of these rabbits bore physical injuries and plenty of scars from the fighting that must have gone on. Valentina has always been shy whilst in our care and a recent attempt to bond her with a placid male bunny has demonstrated that she is incredibly wary of other rabbits and reluctant to trust.

What was remarkable about her recent stint out in a foster home was how much she bonded with her carer. The relationship they enjoyed was nothing like the Valentina we have in our care. She appreciated the space of her own territory, began to bond with the hand that fed her and enjoyed strokes and close contact: quite a transformation from the timid lady we have known. So having seen her begin to blossom it has proven what a rewarding rabbit she will be to the right, new home.
Valentina is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. She has been used to living indoors and is very clean. We would ideally like her to be rehomed as a single house rabbit rather than stress her out with more attempts at bonding, but if you have other bunnies she will live happily alongside them. In experienced hands she may learn to trust a bunny again, but this would likely be a long-term project. Just so you know Valentina is not particularly food orientated, she eats hay and veg but we canít bribe her with anything to encourage a bond.

If you can offer this special lady a quiet and loving home indoors, ideally with her own defined territory please get in touch.

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.
