Rehoming – Profile


Hemingway came into our care as neither of his parents, nor him or his brother, had been neutered and their owners were no longer able to keep them.

Behaviour observations on site:
Hemingway is Ernest-ly looking for a single girl to write a new story with. Do you have a spayed female rabbit that could be this boy’s co-author?
This Nobel rabbit is something of an icon at the shelter. If there was a competition for the sweetest rabbit, Hemingway would win a prize. He is very relaxed in the company of people, comfortable with being handled and will fall asleep very easily when stroked. And when he’s had enough of the limelight, he will happily retire to his litter tray for a snooze.

Can you offer the forever home that will let Hemingway bid A Farewell to The Ark…?

Hemingway can either be an indoor or outdoor bunny; he will need a rabbit-proof room or a large shed with a run permanently attached (see photo above for an example).

If you are interested in adopting Hemingway, please fill out an application form below. To help speed up the adoption process, please forward us photos of your setup.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the rabbit. 

Adoption fee: £30-£50. If you would like to make an additional donation over and above the adoption fee, this would be hugely appreciated.

Medical history: 

Hemingway has been castrated, microchipped, fully vaccinated, and has had his teeth checked. As he is a rex rabbit, he will need extra thick bedding to prevent his hocks from getting sore. He currently has no medical issues.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
