Give a loving new home to rabbits or guinea pigs

Give rabbits and guinea pigs a second chance

There are approximately 67,000 rabbits in rescue centres throughout the United Kingdom each year. Not every unwanted rabbit is lucky to find a place at a rescue, as spaces are very limited.

Important notice for families with children

Like your children, all our animals are individual. As such, each adoption will be considered on that basis. Our staff are on hand to advise on the character and suitability of each rabbit or guinea pig.

Please give a second chance to rescue rabbits or guinea pigs if you are thinking of adding these pets to your family. You will be assisted by an animal carer who will take you into the unit for you to see each animal. They will give you any information and guidance that you need to choose the right animal for your home.

Things to consider before adopting a rabbit or guinea pig

  • Have you got enough money to afford vet bills now and in the future?
  • Do you have very young children? Would adoption be inappropriate until your child is slightly older? (If your child is 2 or younger we would not be able to offer adoption)
  • Do you realise a rabbit or guinea pig is for life not just for Christmas?
  • Do you have any holidays booked in the next few months, if so we would advise you to leave it till you get back from your hols!
  • After reserving a rabbit or guinea pig at the rescue, there will be a home check, to make sure your home is suitable.
  • We want to emphasize that adopting a rabbit is a big responsibility and is intended for adults, not as a gift for children. We believe that it’s important to ensure that our rabbits go to a responsible and capable owner, so we will not rehome them to anyone under the age of 18.
  • Before your visit, kindly check if you have any allergies to hay or rabbit fur, as this is a common issue that may continue to pose problems if you were to adopt one of our rabbits.

Adoption Fees for rabbits or guinea pigs

Rabbits adoption fee: £70 for one – £100 for a pair

Guinea pig adoption fee: £30

This suggested adoption fee will help cover the veterinary cost for vaccinations (myxo-RHD), neutering, microchipping, a general health check & the care of the pet.

On reserving an animal, we will need a deposit of £10 per rabbit or guinea pig

We like to do a home check for every rabbit or guinea pig adopted from the rescue as we need to make sure the housing and the area that the animals will be kept in is suitable. Advice is always available if needed.

A reserve can be placed on your chosen pets as we realise that suitable hutches may have to be ordered, delivered or built, this also applies to a secure lidded run.

The adoption process shouldn’t take much more than a week to be completed, home check included.
(this may vary by location)
