Can you give a good home to girl rabbits?

We have had an influx of rabbits this week.

Berwick animal rescue kennels

All are girls, aged from four to seven years, all very friendly and ideally to be rehomed in pairs.

Rabbits need good sized accommodation and a shed is ideal, with plenty of scope for playtime, even if the weather is poor.

A couple of rabbits can even save you having to mow your grass in a medium-sized garden, and not only do you have a healthy lawn, but the benefits for a rabbit’s teeth are huge.

It is important to get them vaccinated each year and we are currently seeing a lot of wild rabbits with myxomatosis so if your rabbit is not vaccinated please book an appointment with your vet.

Snowy is a white and black cat. Although he has lived in a house, he is wary of all things new. He needs a quiet home, which will give him plenty of time to settle and allow him to come round when he is comfortable. He does enjoy a gently stroke. Slow and steady will be essential for this boy.

Pickles is a handsome tabby cat. He is friendly and loving and enjoys human attention. He has lived with a dog, but didn’t really spend time with him, just kept out the way.

Peggy is a five-year-old lurcher type. She loves her walks and playtime. Although she has lived with other dogs, she is rather vocal when out on walks and tends to bark and pull towards them if allowed to do so.

We have some interesting smaller dogs looking for experienced homes, including a Jack Russell, Yorkshire terrier and lhasa apso types.

All of these dogs need an owner that really understands what a dog needs in terms of direction, leadership, exercise and training. Are you up for the challenge?

We are having an open day combined with our plant sale on Saturday, May 27. We will have an exciting announcement in the next few weeks regarding this event.

In the meantime, please watch our website for news of a mini-plant sale taking place away from the kennels.
