More about Delphine:

Delphine was abandoned in a park in South Yorkshire. We estimate her to be around 3 years old and is a lionhead cross. Delphine is stunningly beautiful with a distinct personality.

Delphine was grumpy and obese when she first came into our care. We are pleased to report she's now out of the obese category and a normal weight. We can't quite report the same progress with her grumpiness. She is not terribly impressed with life in our care. She is happiest when she can roam freely and be left to her own devices, unless there is food on offer! It seems to us that Delphine is a product of her upbringing. Most likely been confined to a hutch and life before coming into our care and not had much positive human interaction. She is absolutely fine with us but would rather we did not handle her or force interaction, unless we've got food on offer. We suspect with plenty space to roam and time to develop trust in her adopter she could prove to be a really rewarding rescue rabbit, as she seems rather sassy and switched on.

Delphine is definitely a dominant character and needs an experienced rabbit owner but we are certain she will blossom in the right hands. Bonding her with a male rabbit could go either way, but if you want to try the male would need to be placid and submissive . Delphine has been neutered and microchipped and received both the combi vaccination and RHD2 vaccination. She can live indoors in a quiet home or outdoors.

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.
