RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch is looking for permanent loving homes for several rabbits in its care.

The bunnery at The Holdings Rescue & Rehoming Centre is the temporary home for the rabbits, who are all hoping it won't be too long before they have a home to call their own.

Two of the current residents are black and white female Marmite and fawn male Peanut, who came in through no fault of their own and have lovely, curious natures.

Geraldine Haynes, branch trustee, said: "These two gorgeous two-year-old bunnies are a bonded pair who love to explore and check out new items!

"Like most bunnies, they are not too fond of being picked up, but will happily come and play with you if you sit on the floor with them."

"They have been used to being indoors with us, so could either stay living indoors or due to the time of year would need a gentle introduction to the outdoors to acclimatise."

All of the branch's rabbits are given parasite control, a general health and dental check at the vets, vaccinations against myxomatosis, RHD1 and RHD2, and are microchipped, neutered or spayed.

"The costs of all the veterinary treatment for rabbits before rehoming is high", added Mrs Haynes.

"We ask for an adoption fee of £50 each as a contribution towards our costs and we check accommodation sizing prior to going to a new home. Our minimum standard for two bunnies is a hutch 6ft by 4ft with an additional free run space available."

If you have the time and space for a rescued rabbit, ring 07484 905707 or call into the centre in Holdings Lane, Broomhall, Kempsey, Worcester WR5 3FP to meet the rabbits and cats for adoption any day (except Wednesdays) between 11am and 4pm.

Everyone is invited to the branch's Christmas Fayre at The Holdings on Sunday, December 9, from 10am until 3pm.

Father Christmas will be there with sweets for the children, Christmas gifts and stocking fillers for four-legged friends.

Mince pies, mulled wine, hot drinks and cakes will be on offer, plus The Holdings carol singers.

Ring Alan on 07599 961456 for more information.
