Pete and Darcy came to PACT early January 2024 when their owner could no longer care for them.
They are both friendly rabbits who can be a little shy if they’re not familiar with their surroundings.

Pete is a mini rex male who will happily come over for treats if you have any but isn’t too keen on being picked up.
He adores Darcy so wherever she is, he won’t be far behind. He also loves a wooden platform to hide on and will sit on top if there’s a tasty treat about.

Darcy is a female dwarf who will happily take a headstroke if she’s feels safe around you. Just like Pete, she can be convinced to come and say hi for a yummy treat!
She is a little bolder than Pete and will often be the first of the pair to say hello.

They are both beautiful rabbits who are looking for a home where they can be given lots of love and patience.
They can be rehomed with children over the ages of five as long as they are respectful and understanding of a rabbits needs.

Outdoor rabbits

We base our rehoming requirements off the RWAF guidelines.
Please click here to read more, or read below for the measurements we follow.

Our recommended living area for 2 average sized rabbits (and they should be kept at least in pairs) is a single enclosed area of at least 3m x 2m by 1m high. This can include the sleeping quarters, and makes up a footprint (accessible area of the ground or floor) of 3m x 2m.

It’s important for the rabbits that this 3m x 2m footprint is in a single block of space because it allows them to display positive behaviours, for example, to run rather than just hop.

The upper floor of a two-storey hutch does NOT count towards the footprint. Similarly, whilst raised platforms, tunnels and other connected areas are great for enrichment and are actively encouraged, they do not count towards the footprint.

Please note that the 3m length is important as this allows the rabbits to run and not just take a few hops. We sometimes see 60sq ft of space being referred to as the minimum guideline, but this does not always meet the minimum guidelines, for example 8ft x 8ft would be 64ft, but there is not a 3m length in that set up.

The sleeping quarters (hutch for example) should be a minimum of 1.8m x 0.6m x 0.6m high (or 6ft x 2ft x 2ft).


Here are some example set ups:

Indoor rabbits

Rabbits could be kept in their own room/part of a room and be allowed to free roam safe areas.
Even if indoors the will still require as much space as outdoor rabbits. We do not accept indoor cages as housing as these are much too small (but are great as litter boxes!)
They will need to be able to show their natural behaviours of running, digging, jumping, hiding and grazing.

Safety – electric wires need to be put in protective trunking and hidden away.

Chewing – wires are not the only thing rabbits will chew. Wallpaper, furniture, door frames, carpets, clothes and shoes are a few examples. You need to provide lots of suitable chew toys to keep them out of mischief!

Great escape – rabbits can squeeze through surprisingly small gaps and can jump very high. Ensure you have blocked off any hidey holes that they could get stuck in.

Litter training – it is fairly easy to litter train your rabbits and this is something you will need to do, however you need to allow time to do this and have the rabbits in an area where you don’t mind accidents happening while they are learning

Outdoor space must be available even for indoor rabbits. This needs to either be a fully secure run 8ft by 6ft and at least 2ft high or a fully secure garden with no poisonous plants. Free access always needs to be supervised.
