More about Billy and Piper:

Billy (male, black ) and Piper (female) have the most enviable relationship with one another. Despite sharing a history of living in the most appalling conditions, this seems to have strengthened their pair bond. They are absolutely besotted with one another and in the three months we have had the pleasure of caring for them they have transformed both physically and mentally.

Billy and Piper were found being housed in a small indoor plastic cage. It had not been cleaned out in many months, there were cobwebs all over the bars of the cage and they were existing in inches deep of their own filth. The cage was barren and had no food or water. Piper was so obese that she had fat folds on her belly that were infected. She required daily cleaning for weeks on end and a strict diet to shift her weight before she could be neutered. The pair of them were terrified when they arrived, but we could see from day one how committed they were to one another. Billy used to be really protective of his ladybun and box and growl us out of the way! As the weeks went on they began to trust us and enjoy the new life they had. As the weight came off Piper she started to play and accept strokes from us. By this time we were best friends with Billy and we had all fallen for him. His apparent love for his companion was just so endearing. The pair are now unrecognizable from when they came in and they love life and being fussed by everyone. They are probably in the top 3 of transformations and triumphs at our centre this year and we are so proud of them.

Both bunnies are neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Whilst they have always lived indoors we think they would be very happy outdoors in a sheltered set up e.g. shed and run or garage with natural light. They may take a little while to adjust to their new home but in time they will become your bunny best friends too. We don't know how old they are but probably around 2 to 3 tops. If you would to fill your garden with some lovely bunnies then please email us at adoptions@rspca-manchesterandsalford.org.uk

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.
