More about Pearl:

Pearl is back in our care after a failed ‘bonding’ with a potential mate. In this instance it seemed to be that both were to blame for the lack of success. We suspect Pearl may be just too nervy to cope with both a change of environment and introductions to a potential mate all in one go. As such we are willing to rehome Pearl to live alone outdoors providing she will have regular contact with her carers and can build up her relationship with them on her own terms.

It’s no surprise Pearl is quite wary of change given the rotten past she has had. She was abandoned with her sister at a roadside in Sheffield and despite veterinary intervention we could not save her best friend. You can read all about their ordeal at this link:

Pearl has been in our care for 6 months and we believe she about 3 to 4 years of age. As you can see from her news story she suffered terrible neglect but her foster mum has worked wonders with Pearl. Her foster mum tells us all about this very special little lady:

“Pearl is a wonderfully odd little character. She is a stunning bunny with the most amazing blue eyes. When she first arrived she was very nervous. The slightest noise or movement would send her flying into the nearest hiding place where she would sit and stamp her feet repeatedly. She was clearly a rabbit who had lost all trust in humans.

As she gradually began to settle in, her unique personality slowly began to show itself. She started to hide less and less. She wasn’t as fussy with food and would no longer bolt as soon as she saw you.
Then one day I found her out and sitting proudly on a small owl shaped cardboard cat scratcher. Now her daily routine consists of being up at dawn for a run around followed by a few on-the-spot binkies. Her next stop is her favourite perch, the owl scratcher, where she loves to sit and survey her kingdom.

ll and has tried a variety of veggies. She eats plenty of hay daily. She is a very clean little lady who always uses her litter tray. Now that she is more relaxed in her surroundings she grooms herself regularly to keep herself looking her glamorous best. Pearl will never be a rabbit that enjoys being handled and she can get quite fretful when picked up.

One of the most heart-warming moments during my time fostering Pearl was the first time she relaxed enough to start to play with her toys. Considering all she had been through, and how scared she was when she first arrived. it felt like a huge breakthrough moment. Pearl is such a sweet soul. I believe given time she will continue come on leaps, bounds and binkies.”

Pearl is looking for a home with an animal lover with buckets of patience and realistic expectations. Pearl needs a quiet home (indoors or out) where she we won’t be spooked by people, noises and unfamiliar animals. Pearl is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

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.
