    Default Why is it so hard to rescue?!!

    I tried the RSPCA in Chatham - had a myxi outbreak so were closed for some time

    I tried the Rabbit Residence Rescue - Voicemail says they are closed for two months

    I tried other local ones but they seem to bond in large groups and I wouldn't want to break that up by taking one

    I tried Gumtree in desperation but there are no males available locally to me.

    You hear so many stories about how many abandoned rabbits are in rescues/they're full to the brim and I can't even get one

    I'm in Gravesend, if you could point me toward somewhere fairly local (just noticed you're in Dartford) that would be great!

    Wow yes I help raise money for

    http://secondchance-rehoming.co.uk/


    They never turn any animal away and they have some males available. You can try calling John on the mobile but he is really busy so your best bet is to email them, Amanda will pick it up if you email the small furries address. She is good at getting back to you quickly. I'm in the process of doing another calendar for them to raise money and got one rabbit rehomed for them. Say hello to them from me!

    I've looked at them already, there's nothing suitable

    I've looked at these already but none of the males are neutered and I have nowhere to put them as I'd need to get them done and keep them separate. I don't have a spare hutch and can't have them in the house as it's just not bunny proof.

    I just want to find a neutered male within a rescue that does bonding so I can send Penfold off as I've bought a new shed for them to live in when they come home and I can't seem to find anything

    I dont think Rabbit Residence is closed to adoptions - just to intakes. They have literally hundreds of rabbits awaiting adoption!!!
    Who carry in their hearts Sweet Pea, Florence, Bramble, Parsnip, Quickthorn, Quince, Sage and little Snowdrop. We also remember Viola who visited.

    Oh! I rang Caroline and it went to voicemail saying they were closed for two months except for certain things (can't remember what but don't think adoptions was one so assumed it included that).

    I wanted to take Lindor and Edam but knew they had been listed seperately so wasn't sure if there was a chance that they could be bonded and if they could, I wanted to take Penfold up so they could be bonded as a trio as we will have a shed waiting for them when they come back.

    Send an email up to Caroline. They've been short staffed/volunteered and hectic over the summer with holiday boarders but might be able to fit you in with bonding as they have still been rehoming.
