More about Hazel:

Hazel came into our care just over two months ago. She and her daughters were abandoned on a roadside. Understandably they were quite shaken up by their ordeal so we gave them plenty of time to settle and work out who wanted to live with who, as we rarely find homes for trios. Once we’d seemingly figured all that out hormones then kicked in with the daughters so sadly we had to separate Hazel as she was being bullied. Hazel has now adjusted to her separation and is settled in a foster home and ready and waiting for a forever home. This is what her foster mum has to say:

“Hazel is the sweetest little bun ever. She loves running, changing directions and even binkying! She's not afraid of noises (as in fireworks) but the vacuum cleaner is a different matter (one of her daughter’s was exactly the same). Hazel has not chewed anything although I still keep a close eye on her of course and she's not jumped onto furniture. She is, however, into everything and is brave in exploring, but doesn't like being touched too much though she will tolerate it without biting but is a wriggler. She's really gentle and in time, with someone with patience, I think she'll make the perfect bun. She even comes up to sniff me and will let me touch her head which is a million miles away from what she was like when she first arrived.”

Although Hazel has been indoors for a couple of months we do think she would be happy as an outside bun with lots of space or a free range house bun as she hates being caged. Hazel is not overly interested people and just wants to play. The more space the better for this one and she is the most fantastic hay eater. She is picky about what greens she eats and is just so content with hay (meadow and timothy variety). Hazel is neutered, micorchipped and has had combi and RHD2 vacc. She could be paired with a neutered male to live outdoors but can be a single house rabbit. Hazel could live with older children so long as she is left to her own devices.

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.
