More about Marilla:

When Marilla came into our care she was in a pitiful state. She was underweight, half her fur had been pulled out (by other rabbits) and she had a young litter of 4 babies in tow. She was from a home of over 50+ rabbits who had just been left to free-roam together and the situation had got horribly out of control. There were so many newborns and lactating does all mixed up in the most awful living conditions. They were in 5 inches of their own filth, having been left to defecate wherever they went and with not enough food to go around. Marilla and her babies were the lucky ones. They were a close family who adored each other so they thrived once in our care. Now that Marilla has finished her duties and has been neutered she is ready to find a forever home home, ideally with a neutered male for company.

Marilla has a quiet personality. She enjoys company and will come to you once she has got to know you. She will sit for a while and enjoy a head stroke but still is a little timid, especially of sudden movements or loud noises. She loves timothy hay and hay cookies and a box to sit in! When her pen is cleaned out in the morning she loves going for a charge up and down the rabbit unit and having a good explore.

If you are a quiet home with time, patience and love to spare then please consider offering Marilla a home. She is looking to be a house bunny and is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you can offer her a home please email

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.
