    Default WANTED: Elderly rabbit

    Unfortunately Toffee my 11year old boy has been widowed.
    Therefore I'm looking for an elderly companion for him to enjoy his golden years with. Must be neutered, vacc'd and have a similar kind calm nature.
    Not fussed on looks, size etc.

    Looked on rabbit rehome but they all see young at 5-6. Would consider that age but know elderly buns are particularly hard to rehome.

    Any ideas?
    Hetty...

    there is the most beautiful girl at cottontails at the moment. 8yrs old. lost her husbun a year ago. if they weren't so far away, i'd be soooo tempted to try her with bisc, but it's such a long way for her to travel and if they don't get on, she would have to travel back again. but she's beautiful and sounds a lovely personality.

    not sure how close you are to them, but got to be closer than me!

    We (Walsall RSPCA) have an 8yr old netherland dwarf female who is due to be spayed the week after next. Her name is Mia - she came to us as part of a large rescue we helped the Rabbit Residence with recently.
    Could you offer one of our bunnies in care a forever home?? RSPCA Walsall Bunnies

    Awww! I've met a few of those at RRR and they are some super sweet little bunnies despite what they've gone through, fingers crossed for the spay!

    The OABunnies blog that Weeble linked to is mine. In my trawls around the rescue websites, bunnies over 7-8 are rare, but 5-6 is fairly common. Try Cuddly Critters in Essex, they seem to have a lot of older rabbits at the moment, like Lola here who is 7:
