    Default Rabbit rescue in Aberdeen.

    We've been asked to help with rehoming 17 rabbits, the SSPCA will not help. He owner has breast cancer and COPD. The rabbits are not being kept in great conditions, small, low hutches, green water bottles, no hay apparent in the hutches, the hutches are cleaned weekly- obviously the toilet areas are pretty bad by then. They are all female ( we can take the 3 males at least), mainly lionheads but some larger ones and some nethie types. We hope to get them all out by tomorrow ( taking hutches too, to hopefully stop the lady taking in anymore).
    We would hope to then transport from here to other rescues/ individuals who can help.
    None are neutered or vaccinated. Ages range from. 2 to 5 years old.

    Could possibly help with transport but have no indoor set up to foster or anything.

    Contact Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care and see if they can help.
    They are Glasgow based.
    I can't help with fostering as I need to sort out my set ups for my own bunnies first.
    But please pm me if i can help in any way for some of the cost to help lighten the load a little.
    Hope all goes well!!

    Thank you both.
    I am hoping to pick the bunnies up this weekend, just didn't have time last weekend as we have to sort out 16 hutches and I am taking the lady's hutches away too because if she does start hoarding again, she at least has to buy more.

    Debbie ( Collielover) is helping out and knows a few rescues who can help too- so I hope we can get most of them to a proper rehoming rescue so they can find a forever home.

    Being me, I can't be of any long-term use, but I'm free this weekend if you would like an extra pair of rabbit-handling hands? I don't know how long it takes to remove 17 bunnies! Thought I would say just in case

    Have you spoken to Bunny Buddies and the other rescue down Edinburgh way? Can't quite remember the name...something Here I think?

    Thanks Sarah Mary, I'll get back to you once I confirm times.
    Debbie is contacting I think Bunny burrows, fairly beloved and hutches ( I think that's correct). My friend is taking a female and I know it will be a good home. We will keep the 3 boys and possibly the fluffy bonded sisters and Debbie is taking the aggressive female.
    I would love to take them all but just don't have the facilities to give them run space immediately or money to neuter and vaccinate them all.

    No problem. I've just looked them up, the other rescue is Paws Here. They're in Edinburgh. Buddies Bunny Rescue is in Midlothian, and their site does say they aren't taking in buns atm, but it might not be up-to-date. I'm not sure where Collielover is so perhaps she already knows about them?

    I would happily take a few off your hands if I could. D'you think a bun would fit in a cupboard?

    Great, the cupboard is white too! She'll blend in nicely!

    All organised, the bunnies are being collected on sunday afternoon and will be here until they can be taken to other rescues.
    I know it sounds cheeky, but if anybody wants to help with vaccinating these, so that the rescues concerned don't have to fork out for it, please give me a shout.
    It looks like we are keeping 5, and we will pay for them, but it would be good if we could take the pressure off the rescues helping buy sending down vaccinated buns.
