Bunnies aren’t just for Easter and to prove it we have found some cute little cotton tails, you’re going to find it hard to resist.

These rabbits are currently being cared for at the RSPCA Sussex, Brighton & East Grinstead branch who are looking for forever homes.

If you are unable to adopt an animal from the charity right now, you could consider making a donation instead.

But, if you are looking to add a long-eared, fluffy friend into your home, perhaps one of these could make the perfect match.

Anise and Carraway

The Argus:

Breed: Crossbreed

Age: 1 year, 6 months

Anise and Carraway came in with their son, Hickory, who is also available for adoption.

They are now the centre’s longest staying rabbits and would really like to find a home together soon.

Anise is a female black rabbit and Carraway is a male agouti rabbit. The RSPCA believe they are brother and sister and both have been neutered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

They are a sweet pair but are not used to being picked up and handled, so they would be better with older children or an adult home.

Anise and Carraway have lots of character and energy so would need a large run and a secure garden to have a supervised run around.

They love food and will come forward for treats and a head stroke.

For information on how to adopt Anise and Carraway, visit the RSPCA website.

Billie and Nina

The Argus:

Breed: Crossbreed

Age: Approximately six months

Billie and Nina are female sisters who came into the shelter with their mum, dad and siblings, as babies aged two to three weeks old.

Billie, the agouti on the left of the picture and Nina, the light grey on the right, are looking for a new home together.

They are a sweet pair but are still slightly shy and will need a patient owner to continue to help them gain confidence. Their mum and dad were both very sweet and liked being petted.

The pair like greens and treat time in the afternoon, and are really enjoying playing outside now the weather is starting to warm up.

Due to their shyness, they are ideally looking for an adult home, or one without young children. They have both been neutered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

Peter and Bramble

The Argus:

Breed: Netherland Dwarf/Crossbreed

Age: 3 years and 1 year, six months

Peter and Bramble are looking to be rehomed together.

Peter is a Netherland Dwarf rabbit and Bramble is a Netherland Dwarf crossbreed.

Bramble loves Peter and grooms him all the time. She is the more confident one of the pair, often using the cat flap to go out and can’t understand why Peter doesn’t follow much!

The sweet pair can be picked up but prefer short cuddles and can live inside or out.

They love greens time – especially kale and parsley!

Peter and Bramble have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and wormed.

The Argus:

Breed: Netherland Dwarf

Age: 1 year

Drew came into the shelter as his owner was moving and could not take him.

He had been at the centre for a few weeks and was rehomed but unfortunately, he and the female rabbit did not bond.

This was through no fault of either rabbit, they just did not like each other which does happen sometimes.

Drew is looking for a calm, gentle, submissive spayed female for Drew. He would like a friend who is a similar age to him so he can play and interact with her.

He has a nice character and likes attention and cuddles – but not for long as he gets wriggly! Drew can live inside or outside, is very clean and tidy for a rabbit, and enjoys being groomed!

The RSPCA have neutered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped him.

The Argus:

Breed: Lop

Age: 8 months

Thumper did find a foster home straight away but was quickly returned, as he was not happy in the home.

They have established that Thumper is deaf, so are now handling him gently and not surprising him.

He is a sweet little boy but has not been handled much, so was a little feisty when he arrived but now he has been neutered he is calming down nicely.

He would be best in an adult home and is looking for somewhere with a small, gentle, spayed female rabbit to keep him company.

He will need owners who have bonded before as he is sometimes spooked with quick movements due to his deafness.

Thumper has been neutered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

For information on how to adopt Thumper, visit the RSPCA website.


The Argus:

Breed: Crossbreed

Age: Approximately 12 months

Hickory came into the shelter with his mum and dad for rehoming and has now become one of their longest staying animals.

He has a lovely character and wants to know what you are doing all the time but is really not keen on being picked up and will wriggle a lot.

Hickory loves to run and is very active so would need a run but also a secure garden to explore under supervision.

He loves food and treats, is well litter trained, and is looking for a home with a spayed female rabbit for company.

As he is not great with handling the centre, staff advise on an adult-only home, or one with older teenage children.

Hickory has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and wormed.
