Animals for Adoption


Animals available for adoption – Updated September 2017

An adoption fee will be requested for adopting one of our deserving animals, which is needed to cover the cost of their neutering fees as we are a completely self funded rescue. All adoption fees go directly back into the rescue and helping more animals in need.  Please contact us for more information on this and any aspect of rehoming.  Please also remember to use us for your boarding requirements and recommend us to your friends.  The money raised looking after your pets goes towards the rescue work we do, without it we will be unable to help these animals that are in such need and so deserving of a second chance in life.

Please remember that contrary to popular belief, rabbits do not make great pets for young children.  They can be difficult to handle and can bite at tiny fingers poked through bars thinking they are a tasty carrot.  However, as long as you are prepared for this and accept that you will undoubtably end up doing all the cleaning out etc, there is no reason not to adopt a bunny as a family pet.  We have tried to note which are more suitable for children and those that are perhaps too nervous due to their past circumstances.

Our animals are in the main rescue centre at Staple Hill and in several foster homes throughout Bristol.  If you are not local to Bristol or cannot find a rabbit/s to suit your particular requirements, we also work with a rescue in Bath which may be able to help: www.bunnyrehominginbath.webs.com

The Littlest Rescue run a neutering program but as only a limited number of rabbits can be neutered at a time not all animals listed here may have been neutered yet (the listing will tell you if it has been neutered yet or not).  If there is a rabbit or guinea pig that you would like to adopt but hasn’t been neutered yet, please let us know as we can reserve it for you and prioritise its operation date.

We do not rehome rabbits or guinea pigs to live alone as they are highly social animals that need company of their own kind.  They are available to adopt in pairs and we also offer a ‘match-up dating service’ for lonely/bereaved animals. We do however come across some rabbits due to their background history (often being over bred) that they are proving very difficult to bond due to behavioral problems. We will always try and try again, but sometimes this can hold them back from their furever homes and sometimes the odd solo bunny will be available for adoption, we always encourage owners to come back at a later date to keep trying to bond.  

Our ‘animals ready for adoption’ section is updated as much as possible, however as we have rabbits and guinea pigs coming in and out of the rescue centre continuously we cannot add all animals to our webpage. If there is an animal you are particularly looking for (for example a castrated male to pair up with your spayed female) we do advise to email us to let us know as we often have waiting lists of people who are ready to adopt and therefore the animals will be adopted out to these people before being added to our website. 

Rabbit pairs looking for homes

Maisy and Daisy – In foster care

We are looking for a very special home for these two cuties!

This adorable pair of chinchillas are Maisy and Daisy. They have been well looked after and loved, but now need to find a new furever home together. Aged eleven, they are bright and active, and the cutest thing on two legs!

We are looking for an experienced home for these two as Maisy relies on supplement syringe food to keep her weight maintained. Maisy has recently had dental surgery and is recovering nicely, but her teeth will need to be monitored by a vet in the future. They will come with their own two storey cage on wheels, full of toys, ladders, hammocks and sweet little hidey holes.

If you believe you have space in your home and heart for these lovely little chinchillas then please drop us a email.

Saffy and Bambi – At main rescue centre

Bambi and Saffy are looking for the puuurfect outdoor home with lots of space for climbing, playing and snuggling! Saffy has a really sad story behind her, she was dumped with two males who were barely alive, she then gave birth after only being with us for two short weeks, she was so young and weak she wasnt able to give her babies what they needed and she lost two. She was spayed and vaccinated but didnt want to know other rabbits, we tried and tried her with lovely male companions but she hated every single one. Until she saw bambi…he was so gentle with her and washed her until she could not be washed anymore! Saffy is shy because of her past but they love eachother and thats all that matters. Bambi is a big softy mini rex. They are both neutered and fully vaccinated. Could you offer this young handsome pair a furever home?

Amy and Molly- At main rescue centre

 

These gorgeous girls have just arrived, they have possibly been in with males before coming into us so they will stay with us on pregnancy watch, then be spayed and vaccinated after hopefully not having babies! We hope these girls will find their perfect furever home.

Aaron – In foster care – On trial

Aaron is a little sweetie, He is around 3 months old (22/03/17). He will soon be neutered and vaccinated. Aaron came in with 10 other rabbits from rather unfortunate circumstances in an emergency. They were very scared little babies, but we believe with some love and care he will turn into a very laid back bun! He is a cross breed of New Zealand white and french lop. Both these breeds are known for their big size and gentle nature. He is currently with one of our experienced foster mums and he is already coming out of his shell. He will be ready for adoption around the 27th of july.

Bumble – In foster care

Bumble is 1 year old and 2 months, he will soon be neutered and vaccinated. Bumble came in with 10 other rabbits from rather unfortunate circumstances in an emergency. Bumble was with another male, however as they were un – neutered their behaviour became very aggressive towards each other. We decided they would both be happier to be separated, neutered and find themselves a wifebun! Bumble is a very nervous bunny, he hasn’t realised the human touch is a kind one yet, however he is in foster care and is getting lots of TLC. He is a french lop cross, so is a chunky boy. This breed is known for its laid back nature so we think in time Bumble will learn to trust us in time as he’s still a new bee! He will be ready for adoption around the 27th of july.

 

Russel – At main rescue centre – On trial

Russel was a found rabbit so unfortunately we don’t know his age or background.  However we do believe he’s around 1-3 years old. Hes got a lovely nature, absolutely loves his food and would become very friendly once settled. He’s got confidence and would love a wifebun. He is neutered and vaccinated.

 

Buckthorn – In foster care – On trial

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buckthorne is a big bunny full of character. He’s about 4/5 years neutered and vaccinated and ready to be paired up with a female bunny friend. He’s quite laid back and likes to chill a lot, although he can have his moments of running about. He likes his own space and would suit a adult or older child home. He’s got quite a thick coat that will need to be brushed regularly. He does have an issue with sight in his right eye, but besides that he’s happy and healthy. He would love a wifebun to call his own.

 

Buddy – In foster care

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 6 months old Buddy has lots of energy, he would enjoy a large outdoor space with lots of activities to keep him busy.

He would love the company of a playful wifebun! Hes neutered and fully vaccinated.

Luna – At main rescue centre

Luna is a bunderful character and is looking for an understanding home with previous bonding experience, we have tried Luna with a few males but she hasn’t taken to any. We think she was bullied by her sister so she has has a bad exprience with other rabbits, so she may need a calm laid back male to show her they arent so bad!

Guinea pig Adoption

Guinea pig homes will need to provide plenty of space (min 5ft x 2ft for 2 guineas) in either an indoor cage or outdoor hutch.  It is preferable if they can be brought indoors in the winter months or the hutch moved to a more sheltered location (such as inside a shed).  The home will also need to provide them with a run so that they can go out on the grass in the warmer months.  Please read through our guinea pig care instructions and ensure you are happy with the care you will be expected to provide before applying to adopt any guinea pig/s.

Due to the nature of our guinea pig re-homing we are rarely able to add pictures and descriptions of the ones we have available. We often have lists of interest on lone females, males and pairs. If you are interested in adopting guinea pigs please email Kelly at: thelittlestrescue.gp@gmail.com (GUINEA PIG ENQUIRES ONLY). Kelly will be able to let you know who’s available and send details of them to you. We regularly upload pictures of available piggies to facebook and you can also contact us via fb. We always have guinea pigs available for adoption however we have a very fast re-homing rate.
