    I searched the rabbit re-home UK link for you they have two 5+ ones on there but I don't know how old they are here's the link. Though you may have already searched. Mind only one is a single the others already bonded

    I’ve been refreshing it daily, there are a few who are the right age and single, but being rehomed by individuals not by rescues I really want to adopt from a rescue so that if bonding does not work they can take the bunny back, I don’t have space for two separate sets of rabbits

    There’s a couple of 5 year old girls in a rescue in Nottingham, I may call and enquire tomorrow.

    I ideally want an older rabbit than that though… although I spoke to a nice lady from another rescue today who has said that I shouldn’t limit myself on ages of rabbits because an 8 year old rabbit may live another 6 years or a 4 year old only another 2 years, it is hard to predict

    After this set of rabbits I will be taking a break from having rabbits for a few years, my concern is that if I get one who is likely to outlive my two by many years then I will end up having to return one to a rescue which makes me sad

    Some Rescues offer a long term Foster arrangement for folk in your situation. So you take in one of their Rabbits (of any age) to be a companion for your elderly Rabbit. Then when the elderly Rabbit’s time comes and they pass on the Rescue will take the companion back and find them another home with another companion. Then you are not stuck in the endless cycle of needing to adopt a companion Rabbit.
