Not too sure, I would have thought most RSPCA centres do neuter and vaccinate?

I don't think they all do. Some give you a neutering voucher instead.

my local one doesn't they only do cats and dogs. And didn't offer vouchers. I travelled from Oldham to salford on the bus 1hr.20 there, 4hrs back ugghhh and was late for volunteering and I had to take Charlie with me! He was a sweetie tho.

Also was told it would be 15 pounds when I asked before nad it was 23,50 once it was done, not sure what had happened there

My first two buns came from there (Teapot and Porkpie) and they were not neutered nor vaccs. They were bonded sisters though so perhaps though neutering wasn't necessary. They did give great advice though and homechecked and then did a follow up a few weeks after we had them.

I am going back nearly 8 years though.

Gosh, 8 years, seems like yesterday!

It depends....on the one hand if you take her along you may feel more oblidged to take him even if you are not quite sure that he is the bun for you or miffy the bun for her. On the other hand, if he is the one then if you don't take miffy, you will have to make at least one more trip there, maybe two if they homecheck.

I'd probably take her because at least then you'd know if it was a definate no from miffy before you got your hopes up.

Well i took her! He is quite confident with people but scared of other rabbits:shock: When we put them both down he sniffed her then jumped back in his pen it was really high up too:shock: The women told me to shut his door so he jumped at the door:(
So i suggested we took them outside onto the grassy area i put them in the run they chased a little bit then both sat in two different corners Miffy was as happy as anything muching on the grass! She wasnt bothered at all but he does seem a little scared of her but he has prob never lived with another rabbit before as he was found as a stray!
I think its going to take a little work but ive put a definate reserve on him so now just got to hope i pass my home check!
Anyone know how long it is untill they come out?

Just out of curiosity, I wonder how accurate they are with the age guestimates of strays. Both Brody (now Bridge bun :( and Kiki were strays and I've often wondered if they estimated Brodys age way off the mark as she ended up with such bad spinal arthritis).

Anyway, back to topic.. good luck!

They actually told me they have no idea on his age as hes a stray. they shouldnt have put it on the website
I think he is an older bun though
