Why adopt a rabbit from Animals in Distress?

By adopting, rather than buying a rabbit, you are giving a rabbit a second chance at a happy life. Every rabbit currently at the rescue centre is here through no fault of their own and they are all looking for that special home where they will have the care and attention they deserve.

Adopt, don’t shop

If you are looking to bring a new rabbit into your family, there are many reasons why your local rescue centre is your best first port of call. When adopting a rabbit from Animals in Distress you can be assured that:

  • Every pet that comes through our doors is checked by our vet and receives any veterinary treatment needed before being given the all-clear for rehoming
  • Before rehoming all rabbits are neutered, vaccinated against Myxomatosis, VHD1 and VHD2, tested for Coccidiosis and treated for worms
  • We offer a bonding service to pair your single rabbit with one of our single rabbits. Alternatively we allow you to take one of our animals for a trial in the home, if you wish to do the bonding yourself
  • Every rabbit will go home with 4 weeks’ free insurance from Petplan
  • The small animals in our care all have their individual personalities and the staff will try to match you with the best possible new addition for your own home and set up
  • We are always available to contact by phone for aftercare advice if required, during the rescue centre opening times
  • If for any reason in the future you find you need to rehome your rabbit, we will endeavour to help you by taking your pet back in for rehoming
  • All this is assured for a modest rehoming fee, a fraction of what you would pay for all the routine veterinary procedures yourself.

The staff team at Animals in Distress have devoted their whole lives to caring for homeless pets and ensuring that they end up in the best possible new homes. Our mission is to find wonderful, forever homes for all our small animals.

For your own peace of mind and for the welfare of your pets, if you are looking for a new addition to your family, please use your local pet rescue centre.
