More about Sophia:

Sophia came into our care in July when she was just 8 to10 weeks old. She had come from a property where rabbits were being bred for money and kept (with mum and their siblings) in 18 inch sized 'hutches'.

Sophia received the offer of a home with a male bunny and went out for bonding. Unfortunately the male bunny was unwilling to accept her so she was returned. Sadly Sophia came back rather spooked so we placed her in a foster home to regain her confidence.

Sophia has come on in leaps and bounds with her foster mum. She has been receiving plenty of gentle and positive, reward-based interaction to develop her self-confidence. This has worked tremendously well but Sophia’s lack of early socialisation is always going to see her reactive to sudden movements and noisy activity.

Sophia does enjoy the outdoor life, but could also thrive in a quiet indoor home, maybe with a room away from the hubbub. We think it would be definitely worth trying again at introducing her to a gentlemanly bunny that is a strong, confident character but not cocky!

Sophia is now 6 months old and as you can see very beautiful. We believe her to be a Netherland Dwarf so she is very dinky! She has been neutered, vaccinated (combi and RHD2) and microchipped. Since being in our care she has been fed a hay based diet with a few leafy greens and tiny amount of pellets as treats/bribes! If you have a loving and calm home to offer our little get them please get in touch.

Please call 0161 882 0680 option 4 to meet her!

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.
