TAG Adoption Procedure for Rabbits


A hutch is not enough

Our rabbits are looking for homes where they can exhibit as much natural behaviour as possible and enjoy happy and fulfilling lives. Most purpose-built hutch/run set ups are not large enough to give rabbits the space they need to exercise and behave normally.

We ask for new homes to have a run that is a minimum of 6 ft x 10 ft. (After all that is only 4 bunny hops) A hutch should be attached so that rabbits can be self sufficient and get in and out when they choose. The hutch should be tall enough so that the rabbits can stand up on their hind legs and be at least 6 ft long. It is very important that they are secure as foxes are becoming more bold and will enter gardens even when people are there.

There are some fantastic accommodation ideas and instructions on how to create them available online. It is well worth investing in a good set up so that your rabbits can get the most of life and you can enjoy looking after them and spending time with them.


Bunny love

Rabbits are very social animals and need the company of another neutered rabbit to feel happy and safe. We do not re-home rabbits to live on their own as this is detrimental to their mental welfare.

Please include measurements of the accommodation too if possible. If the accommodation is of a good size for the rabbits to lead happy lives we will pop round to do a home visit. Once the home visit has been done we will invite you to make an appointment at the sanctuary to meet suitable rabbits.

Our rabbits are all neutered, treated for worms and skin parasites and vaccinated against Myxomatosis, RHD and VHD2.
