More about Blackley:

Blackley has been in our care for around two months now, (not very) patiently waiting for a forever home. He is now a fully grown French lop approx 8 months old and weighing around 5.5kgs. He is akin to a medium sized dog and has a personality to match.
Blackley has come from a home of 100 animals; his owners have been banned from keeping animals for life. He was living free range amongst dogs, cats and other rabbits. In his foster home he happily resides alongside a small dog and insists on leaping out of his pen overnight so he can settle on the rug in front of the hearth. It is telling he is used to free roaming as he is always looking at ways to explore beyond his confines! It will be fine to keep him to a room at night, or when you are out, but he does need ample space to potter and he is incredibly clean and has never chewed anything he shouldn't; he is such a good lad.

Blackley likes the simple things in life: a cardboard box, food and space and he is happy. His foster mum reckons half the time he escapes from his pen at dawn because his belly wants feeding! He is a bit of a lolloping giant and around other rabbits he can be a little bit overwhelming. He doesn't really realise he is a big lad and is a bit of a bull in china shop, so if he is going to be paired with a neuetred female then it must be another youngish giant breed.

Blackley has been neutered, microchipped and had both combi and RHD2 vaccs. He will worm his way into your heart in no time, assuming you are happy to share your home with him.

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.
