Description: Hi! My name is Brer and I am a 2- 3 year old chocolate rex buck.
About me: I arrive on the 22/10/16 and was given up as the child became bored of me.
Temperament: I am an extremely friendly fellow who loves having his cheeks rubbed! I am very people orientated and like to know what you are up to. I am okay to be handled and keep my cage fairly clean.
Type Of Home Wanted: I would be suitable for a child and upwards ( as long as the parent takes responsibility if under 16 years). I need to be rehomed to a female rabbit around the same age as me and can be any breed or size. ( we can offer advice on bonding, see details below) I am a indoor rabbit and I cannot go outside. Since i am a rex, I do require special housing.
Rexes suffer with sore hocks. Therefore they must not be kept on any hard or rough textured flooring. An suitable indoor enclosure would be a padded area with either a hutch or cube cage. They cannot be on carpet too much. Rexes must have their claws trimmed frequently. For more information and ideas on housing please read
General Health: I am up to date with my vaccinations and have been castrated. I am in good health.
Adoption fee: To help the charity cover the costs of neutering, vaccinations and housing costs. We ask for a minimal donation of £55.
If you think you can offer Brer a “furever home” please do not hesitate to contact us using the details below. We are not open to the public and viewing is by appointment only.
For the welfare of the rabbit we ask to do a home check or if you live far ( out of 15 mile radius from NG16 5AX) Please email us a photo of your set up ( quicker) or bring one with you to the appointment.
What we look for is sufficient space. At minimum a hutch at 6ft x 2ft x 2ft with an attached run of 6ft squared. That the accommodation is fox proof, that the rabbit has a partner and that you’ll be able to provide for the animal.
Please note that you cannot just put two rabbits together and think they will get along. Bonding can be a lengthy process. We appreciate how nerve wracking it can be bonding rabbits. Though we do advise you do your homework we are always happy to offer advice. If your rabbit is bonding to one of our own we do offer speed dating. This is a last option where, depending on availability of space, you can bring your rabbit in to be bonded to one if our own under the eye and experience of our staff.
Please note we cannot reserve rabbits unless you have seen them in person. Rabbits are on a first come, first served basis. We can only reserve rabbits for a week, otherwise the next interested person gets priority. Unfortunately, we have had many people mess the charity around, please don’t add to the number.
Thanks for viewing! :3
