Small Animals

If you would like to offer a home to any of our small animals, please ensure you meet our minimum requirements below before completing an adoption form.

Please be aware we carry out a home check before animals leave our care. This may be conducted through a visit to your home or by photographs of your set up, or through a video home visit.

Rabbits

All our adult rabbits are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We request a minimum donation of £50 for each rabbit, which goes towards our costs. Rabbits are social creatures and will be rehomed in pairs or groups, or to be bonded with a single lonely partner (must be neutered).

Rabbits need much more than a hutch and a run. Your new rabbits will need enrichment and stimulation, with an environment where they can display natural behaviours. Rabbits must have constant access to a minimum floor area of 3 metres by 2 metres and a height of 1 metre. Outdoor housing must be predator proof. These guidelines are the minimum space you are expected to provide. The more space your rabbits have, the happier and healthier they will be.

Before completing an adoption application, please take a look at our rabbit welfare information; Rabbits - Fact or Fiction.

Guinea Pigs

Some of our adult male guinea pigs are neutered. We request a minimum donation of £25 for each guinea pig, which goes towards our costs. Guinea Pigs are social creatures and will be rehomed in pairs or groups, or to be bonded with a single lonely partner (female pairs or mixed pairs where males must be neutered).

Guinea Pigs must have constant access to a minimum cage area of 150cm by 60cm with an attached run. For indoor housing we recommend https://candcguineapigcages.co.uk/ enclosures or similar modular systems. Any outdoor housing and run must be predator proof.

 

Your new guinea pigs will need enrichment and stimulation, with an environment where they can display natural behaviours. We recommend tunnels, houses and other hidey places to help them feel safe and secure.

Cody

Cody is keen to let the rabbit lovers out there know the main food that ALL bunnies should be eating is HAY!! Part of an accidental litter, Cody has spent 445 days in rescue😢😢 Anticipating a meet-cute, Cody has been working on his binkying and nibbling… so far any romantic propositions have not been forthcoming, but he’s hoping Summer ‘24 will bring him a gorgeous Hunnybun. If you a ladybun looking for a date, Cody is ready and waiting for his Gotcha Day.

Cason

Cason enjoys rabbit nuggets, but they only make up around 5% of his daily food intake. They contain minerals and vitamins which are great for his health, but Cason’s main diet of Timothy hay keeps his teeth in check and his tummy working properly. Cason joined us in February 2024, and has spent 147 days in rescue. He’s a wonderful friendly bun, who loves a stroke and likes to chill on the sofa with his foster family. Cason is hopping his hunnybun is out there, ready and waiting for him.

Clover and Hopper

Clover and Hopper are friendly buns who enjoy Spring Greens and Curly Kale, but most of all, they love fresh Timothy hay! Clover and Hopper are bouncy buns! They originally bounced into rescue in March 2023, and bounced into a new home later that year. Sadly this didn’t work out, and they bounced back into rescue again in March 2024. They’ve spent a further 110 days in rescue. Clover and Hopper are really hoping their next home is the final one, and the bouncing around can be in your garden!
