More about Bessie:

Poor Bessie has had the most rotten life. She was found by RSPCA inspectors living in a dreadful conditions, cramped in a hutch with another adult, a baby and a dead baby. It really was a distressing scene. The bunnies were rushed to the vets but alas it was too late for the second baby, who passed away on arrival. Sadly Bessie went on to loose her adult companion too due to the neglect she had suffered.

Bessie has now been with us two months and has recovered from her ordeal, but her poor care and lack of socialisation has revealed that she is keen to live outdoors and be left to her own devices. She is timid around people and is keen to avoid contact. She really needs to find a home where she can be left to potter and play outside and maybe have a companion. This is not essential, however, as it is more important that we place Bessie in an environment that she is adjusted too and will be settled in. Bessie is struggling with life and we are keen to help to find her a home asap.

Bessie has a clean bill of health and is neutered, microchipped and had both sets of vaccinations. If you can offer Bessie an outdoor life with suitable shelter and permanently attached exercise space then please get in touch. Ideally she will live alongside other rabbits and/or be paired with a neutered male. Please help give this girl a life worth living.

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 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.
