Hello there, my name is Benny and I am told I have the most beautiful eyes in the world. I am a friendly bunny but can be a bit unsure of new situations. I am looking for a rabbit friend to spend my days with and an owner with plenty of time to spend socialising me, I promise not to hypnotise you with my pretty eyes.
SIZE REQUIREMENTS: Rabbit accommodation must be secure, weather proof, be one continuous minimum area of 45 square foot (4.18 meters squared), be a minimum of 2 and a half foot (0.6 meters) in height and have access to this at all time. This is not as big as it sounds, please ask for an example.
DIET: Rabbits diet should consist of 80-90% hay. Each rabbit should be fed a small handful of rabbit pellets twice a day. This should be scattered throughout the environment to encourage natural foraging behaviour. It can also be handfed which will form a good bond with the rabbit. They can also have fresh veg every other day; however there are many veg and fruit they cannot have. Please ask a member of staff for a list of appropriate food types.
VACCINTAIONS: Rabbits need regular vaccinations against myxomatosis and VHD. These vaccinations need to be done at your local vet and need to be done every year. All our rabbits are vaccinated.
NEUTERING: We neuter all our rabbits and ask that members of publics rabbits are neutered if they are to be bonded with any rabbits here at the centre
COMPANY: Rabbits should be kept as pairs or more. They are very sociable animals and would live in large groups naturally.
ENRICHMENT: Rabbits can become bored in their environment so there are many ways to enrich the accommodation. Things such as plastic plant pots stuffed with hay and treats, rolling hay balls, branches from fruit trees, chew toys and tunnels are all good enrichment. If you would like more ideas please ask a member of staff.
