More about Eris:

Eris has been in our care since March. She was originally admitted after being found abandoned in a snow blizzard with a litter of 10 new born babies. RSPCA Inspectors tracked down the person who had abandoned her and found many more rabbits at the property; breeding had seriously got out of control!

Eris has since been neutered, microchipped and received both the combi and RHD2 vaccinations. She has also been out twice for attempts to bond her with a male companion and it has failed each time despite slow, patient introductions under our guidance. It seems that she is super wary about being in proximity to other males, which is hardly surprising given the indiscriminate breeding that had gone on in her previous home. We think this has meant she has a lack of trust around rabbits and makes her defensive. What she ideally needs is an exceptionally placid male and the chance to bond over months rather days. We are therefore looking for a home where she can live alongside another rabbit for as long as it takes, and if it doesn't work out she can still live there for life.

Eris is a lovely rabbit who has really not had a great life. We estimate her to be around 3 years old and needs a quiet life where she can be left to her own devices. She could be a single house rabbit in a quiet home as she does enjoy human company.

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 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.
