Sadly, some animals will stay as permanent residents. They're too demanding, too sick, or old, to be re-homed. We're developing an Adopt-A-Bunny scheme. For a pound a month - to help with the cost of feed and vet fees - you'll get photos and updates on your chosen animal. If you'd like details, please email us (sl21r4@hotmail.com).

Attitude is a neutered male Agouti who arrived in 2002 at four-days-old; mum had passed away. He had attitude from day-one and was first of his litter to the syringe. He became aggressive, which happens to many hand-reared rabbits. He was neutered to see if it would calm him: no chance. He attacks people when he runs loose in the garden and even Amy shouts for help when he's out. He has to go into Adopt-a-Bun as he bites through working boots and draws blood.

 

Do not be deceived.

He is armed and dangerous.

 
Blossom is a sable Netherland. She was born in 1999 and came here as part of an RSPCA rescue in 2000. She was re-homed but recently came back to us due to owner's illness. Due to her age, she will spend her remaining days here.    

Buster and Honey are two bonded does, possibly sisters, despite dissimilar looks. Born August 2004. They moved to a foster for winter as they hated an outdoor hutch and the rescue dogs upset them. Honey is an outgoing black lionhead lop. Buster is a very shy butterfly dwarf lop. In January the fosters agreed to foster them as house rabbits permanently and they now have free reign of the garden. It was felt unwise to disrupt their lives further through the re-homing scheme, as they've always been used to a house environment and because they'd forged a bond with an older neutered buck called Cuddles.

In the garden with Cuddles.

Clover - Arrived September 2006. She won't go near the stable as a stable collapsed on her when she was two. If anyone could help feed, clothe, or even hands-on help. We need hay, straw, tack, rugs and we're short on buckets. As of today we can clip a lead rope on without any fuss and she'll take 8 or 9 steps on the rope.    
Cheeky is six-years-old and grumpy since mum, who lived with her, passed away two years ago.  

Fritz is a Netherland and German Lop cross. He was born in 2003 and is a ex-breeding rabbit. He's bonded with Little Mo.  

Jocksar - a self-black buck of unknown age. We can't re-home him due to his age. He was boarded with us in 2002 and his owner never came back. He has Pasteurella but rarely has symptoms. He likes a cuddle but not hours of attention. Nobody notices our poor little boy.

UPDATE: We were hoping to bond Jocksar with a long-term resident doe but our vet decided Jocksar is too old to be neutered so he'll live alone, despite being upgraded to a larger hutch.

 

     
Magic - A large white buck, too old to be rehomed. Loves a fuss.  

     
Mona is a dwarf lop female, born 2005. She's sooty fawn and was originally called Fudge but gets grumpy if she's broody, or hasn't got in the run for a few days.  

 

   
Smirnoff and Silver Smirnoff was well looked but when he arrived we saw he had a retained testicle. He was neutered but the vet couldn't find the retained one. Poor thing looked like a patchwork quilt (see pic). Blood tests showed he was still producing testosterone. In early 2007, a lump appeared and an operation found it was the missing testicle, meaning he can avoid the chance of cancer in later life. Silver is Smirnoff's friend.

Snowy was born in 2000. He's with a permanent foster and can't be re-homed because he has a fatty lump that needs watching.  
Toffee - We can't re-home him because he's aggressive.  
Woody - We'll never be able to re-home Woody but he has tremendous character as these pictures show.
