Jean-Luc, Claudia & Serge

HOUSE RABBITS Claudia, Serge and Jean-Luc are juvenile French Lops who came into our care two months ago. Their owners had been sold a mis-sexed pair of rabbits and subsequently an unplanned litter of 9 arrived. Their owners were unfamiliar with rabbit care and sadly they had no substrate in their shelter and were sodden, matted and disshevelled. They were 13 weeks old at the time and malnourished but the owners had not knowingly underfed them and had reached out for our help. We are very grateful to them for coming forward for help and it has enabled us to help these gorgeous rabbits. It has been a long journey but they now have the all clear for rehoming.


The bunnies were placed in small groups to reduce food competition and to give them every possible chance to thrive. They have now gained a really substantial amount of weight and their muscle mass is improving weekly. They are not, sadly, going to reach the intended size of a  French Lop but they do have all the wonderful characteristics of this breed. This trio are so truly entertaining to be around. Their particular trait is bumbling clumsiness. They are forever tripping over their ears as they run around or binky into walls!  They are so sociable and love hanging out with people and each other. They are just the most amazing bunnies you could possibly wish to share your life with. They are just so affable and keen to be around you (and the veggies box!).


We are looking to rehome Claudia, Serge and Jean-Luc together because they are the best of friends. Despite being 5 months old the hormones associated with puberty have never really kicked in (probably as a result of their malnourishment) so they are a stable and very much bonded group. The vet has advised we can neuter them at 6 months old so they can be adopted now and come back for their op at the specialist vet we use in South Manchester. They are fully vaccinated and would be best enjoyed as house rabbits. They do not need any more space than a regular sized rabbit although they do enjoy stretching their legs and having an explore. We will consider them living outdoors in a converted shed type set up providing you spend a lot of time with them! To meet them please call 0161 737 6600.
