    Hi,

    I am desperately seeking 2 of the above and have trawled the internet for months now. Can't even find any sanctuaries that are local to me :mad:.

    I am happy to take babies or rehome older ones, not fussed, just so want to give a loving home to some bunnies.

    If anyone can help in anyway it will be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    xxxx

    I run a rescue in Dagenham.

    Feel free to take a look at my website.

    35,000 rabbits are dumped in rescues every year in the UK.
    It's nice to give some a second chance :)

    ahhh your starlights owner!!! ive been looking at adopting a rescue bunny (thought it fair to do my bit to rescue a bun) and have fallen in love with sparrow!!
    as a breeder will this go against me adopting? obviously i dont want him for breeder as if he isnt nuetered i will get him done anyway with follow on checks promised.
    pm me the details as i am not far from you.

    I'm not sure to be honest I think it depends on the rescue, some are really dead set against breeders others maybe a little more accepting as long as they know they are going to a good home. You have a great set-up and obviously love your buns so perhaps they will be happy if they agree to homecheck you.

    Its a shame really because decent breeders and rescues need to work together to sort out these awful breeders/irresponsible owners and petshops!

    Ooh i feel famous! haha
    All buns are neutered before hand anyway so that is all good.
    I don't discriminate on things such as people being breeders, having dogs etc, you can not be picky on minute details or you would never rehome!

    I am near Dagenham Heathway
    I do ask all buns are rehomed in pairs or to live with an existing bunny in a 6ft x 2ft x 2ft hutch with attached 6 x 4ft run.

    Sparrow would keep you amused!
    He can be so naughty!

    Thanks all for your posts.

    I guess I was just hoping that someone was closer to me (I am near Southend). I just don't like the thought of poor little buns having a long car journey :(

    Ever since I was little I wanted a dwarf lop one grey and white and the other brown and white! We don't always get what we want eh?

    Frag - thank you for getting back to me, I'll pm you.

    I soooooooooooooooooooooooooo want the rabbits right now!!!!!!

    In your guys experience, can rabbits roam free in the garden for a bit or do they try and escape imediately? I just have visions of digging buns!! I wouldn't of course let them loose straight away, was just wondering what their behaviour can be like. I also have 2 puss cats to take into consideration (and wandering cats) and if I did let them out would never ever leave them un supervised.

    xxxxx

    Dreamer came to me in southampton from nottingham, he stayed overnight half way down at a lovely ladies house and got spoilt, it can be done and is worth it if they have a lovely new home :)

    They should never be left free roaming unsupervised, i have a pretty much bun proof garden mine dont tend to dig though thankgod! I have a 6ftx8ft enclosed run too.
