    Default Rescue near Portsmouth

    Hello folks

    Can anyone recommend a good rescue centre in the Portsmouth area ? I am thinking that it would be good to get Smartie a friend in September time and I would like to give a home to a rescue but I am concerned that I might not have enough experience (as I guess they may need more care ?). Also would they bond them as I am scared of the idea of fighting bunnies. Rolo and Smartie were always so loving to each other.

    Thanks
    Katrina

    This shows all the rescue centres, maybe it might help http://www.rabbitrehome.org.uk/centres.asp

    Some rescues need more care and can be higher maintenance, but generally the average rabbit just needs some understanding but is essentially, the same as any other bunny.

    Good on you for wanting to help one who really needs help. I hope you find the perfect friend

    There's Cat and Rabbit Rescue at Sidlesham. They have an open afternoon on Sundays when you can go and see the buns that are up for adoption. I volunteered there Christmas morning and they always have lots of needy buns. I think they use Elaine in Waterlooville to do their bonding (who used to run a rescue I helped out at).

    There is also Blue Cross which I think is near Hedge End - but I could be wrong, although I have been there. And RSPCA at Stubbington too.

    It's easier rehoming buns locally but I live in Havant and my last three rescue buns came from BARCS - so a very long way away.

    Oooh can you update on this or PM me please to let me know what you find out, I have been advised by my vets who work with Soton Rabbit Rescue that she is really lovely but, not sure what she does with regards bonding, re-homing etc so any info would be good, I will ask next week when I go for vacs if I can speak to the nurse who knows her, if mine bond alright I will have a couple of hutches hopefully she might be able to use.

    #Just so you know Sue doesn't neuter....so that will be something to bear in mine when you think about bonding

    Sue has the most beautiful Argente noir doe in at the moment, never seen one in a rescue before, if i could i would have her

    Not sure if you bun is a buck or doe, you'd need to get your rescue from Sue neutered and settled first


    If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane,
    I'd walk right up to Heaven, And bring you home again
