About to adopt and welcome some bunnies into your home for the first time? What do you need to have ready for them going home?
Print off this handy checklist below
A safe bunny proofed space for them to live either indoor or outdoor - read how to set up a suitable enclosure/environment here.
A few large litter trays for them to do the toilet in. We recommend a few large under bed storage boxes nice and big and deep. Ditch the small pet shop litter trays!
At least 1 large hay rack that sits over a litter tray. We recommend a carrier bag holder which makes an excellent and cheap hay rack!
Good quality farm hay - you will want a large amount of hay at least a large sack or bale (not pet shop hay) for them to eat. You can buy good hay online or from local farm shops. Don't store anything less than 5kg or you will be running to buy more. Read about hay here.
Litter for litter trays - no wood shavings (these are messy and toxic), we recommend wood pellet litter or Back2nature paper pellets as the two top picks.
Supplementary feed like cold pressed pellets and a box of Fibafirst sticks. Available to buy on the One Hop Shop here.
Some fresh herbs ready for them coming home (basil/mint/coriander/parsley are all top hits).
Toys - some safe natural chew toys like willow baskets, willow toys, seagrass toys or natural wooden toys. Available to buy on the One Hop Shop here.
A tunnel for them to play in. Available to buy on the One Hop Shop here.
A hide or two for them to hop on and hide in if they are nervous when they first arrive. They should always have somewhere safe to bolt to.
A water dispenser or large ceramic dog bowl for their water. We recommend the one from our shop as they can't tip it over and it holds lots of water. Available to buy on the One Hop Shop here.
Insurance - don't forget to have this for your bunnies or you can end up paying thousands for vet bill's! Use our link to take out insurance with Agria and they will donate back to a rescue rabbit. Click here.
Register with a good rabbit savvy vet - be prepared to travel and set reminders for their annual vaccinations. Find a vet here.
