More about Peaches:

SINGLE HOUSE RABBIT

When Peaches came into our care nearly 5 months ago little did we know what journey we would have with her. This poor girl has had a rotten time but throughout it all has remained a stoic, happy-go-lucky little marvel. Peaches is approximately 2.5 years old and came to came to us after her rescuer couldnít afford the veterinary treatment she so desperately required.

Peaches was being given away free on Facebook and a kind soul took her to live with her two other rabbits but quickly found Peaches was unwell. Peaches had syphilis or 'vent disease' as it is also known and was signed over to the RSPCA so she could receive the care she needed. Once the syphilis was treated she then developed a blocked gland on her eyelid and this took some time treat and in the end was lanced. Having spent many months monitoring her in foster care we are confident her troubles are well and truly behind her and can release her for adoption. On veterinary advice we are rehoming her as a single house rabbit as she maybe a carrier of syphilis for life so to avoid infecting another rabbit she can live indoors alone. Peaches is such a gentle soul, has never protested about her medicines and is just such a sweet little lady.

She is so good natured and quietly confident. She needs to get to know you but once she does she is happy being hand fed and stroked. She will happily hop around you and enjoys a play in the garden too! Peaches is looking for a home where she can either be free range, have her own room or have an enclosure min. 3m x 1m. She is used to an adult only home but could live with older children.

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.
