theres these two

145 Addington Road, Irthlingborough
Tel: 01933 650372 /

Rabbit Rescue

I tried adopting from Nanna's before and they wouldnt rehome to be a house rabbit but could still be worth asking i guess :wink:

If you go on rabbit rehome web site, then click on the list of rescues.There are two rescues listed under northamptonshire.
Good Luck

I know the lady at Ashton Rabbit Rescue, it's near Jct. 15 of the M1, if you call her during the day to explain, I'm sure she'll be able to help. I know she homechecks potential adopters too. I know the Irthlingborough one is closer to you though, and I know someone who has had to give rabbits to them before too. I'm sure if you call to explain, it will be OK. Most may expect - or be grateful for - a donation towards their costs. And if you have to re0home to them, they are unlikely to let you adopt from them in future.

have you considered honeybunnys. im from northants and jill is the only one i felt comfortable adopting a rabbit from to be honest as i know the care and attention she gives all her buns. (took us just under an hour to get there from corby)
nanas dont spey females and nor do they homecheck
ive never heard of the other ones
i cant remember who i contacted b4 i got harvey but they didnt seem bothered atall what type of home the animal went to! and were also advertising for friends on RU!A bun she advertised was from a litter of a friend and not actual a resuce bun atall.

just wanted to edit this cas i read it back and it may have come across abit ermm rude! i just meant only jill cas shes closer to me than any other rescues from here. i would have been totally happy adopting from anyother rescue from this site, if it was near to me. just meant on here you see how well people care for the rabbits and with shelters and places run by people not on here you dont get an ''inside'' look and know how much people love their rescue buns.

I got my two from the Ashton Rabbit Rescue and I know several other people who got their bunnies (and other small pets)from there.

I think that the woman who runs it is amazing and she is the only person I would trust my buns with (apart from me, of course).

I have a donate directly to them every month, so perhaps you could do this to help pay for Pie's upkeep until she finds a home?
