This pair of males are in Westbury and are 6 months old. They are kept side by side but separate as they fight severely so cannot be kept together. Ideally we are looking for a new home that will have both of them, as they do seem happy with being able to see each other so long as there is no contact. Alternatively they could each be neutered, which would enable them to be bonded with a female each (once infertile). Cottontails would give £60 towards each castration, payable to the vet that would carry out the procedures. The new owner will arrange this to suit their location and vet preference.
The equipment is available to go with them, as shown in the photos, but if they are to be kept side by side but separately, they will need a cage each.
If you can offer a suitable, permanent home for them, get in touch by PM (not comments) and we will go from there.

This pretty Dutch rabbit needs a new home - he is in Trowbridge. If you can offer a suitable, permanent home, get in touch by PM (not comments) and we can go from there. Here is what owner Marie has said:
“This is our lovely Egon (named after the Ghostbuster). He's a Dutch rabbit, approx 2 years old. He was given to my father in law by his neighbour when the children didn't want him anymore. My father in law hoped to find him a home as he is involved in rabbit shows, but sadly couldnt. So a few months ago we took him into our home to give him a bit more space and interaction than he was having. Unfortunately though we don't have the space to offer him the companionship he needs in the long term. We would love to re-home him with someone who can give him good space to roam and the companionship of another rabbit. We have had him vaccinated and neutered in the last few months. He's curious and friendly chap, with a real character. He loves to zoom. He is currently an indoor rabbit so that would be preferable.
There are no long term health issues that we know of. He's had a difficult time with his neuter as the would didn't heal well, but is now much better. He loves Romain lettuce and basil! He is a nibbler so we have had to be ultra careful about what's around him. He has a love of nibbling clothes! Can be a bit stressed at times, possibly due to the changes he's already been through, so needs a relaxing home who will give him time to adapt.”

This pair of bonded females are in Salisbury, and they need a new home. Olivia is the black one, Sparkles is the grey, and they are 2 years old. They are vaccinated. As neither female is neutered, CottonTails will pay £60 towards each spay, payable to the vet that will carry out the procedures. This will be arranged by the new owner to suit their location and vet preference.
They are both indoor and outside bunnies do either will suit. Their owner Hayley says:
“They don't have any behaviour issues. They can be nervous, but are friendly.”
If you can offer a suitable, permanent home for the pair, get in touch by PM (not comments) and we can go from there.
