Our first Orphan of 2024!

Updated 1 month ago
Rescue - 1st March, 2024
Rehabilitation - 4th March, 2024


Sound the alarms, batten down the hatches, and get ready for an overload of cuteness! Our orphan season has begun, and it's started us off with a challenge!

This tiny 39g rabbit kit, only a few days old, arrived after his nest was disturbed. Sadly, with no sign of mum or siblings, and the little one being pretty unresponsive, the finder swooped in, scooped up the hairless cutie, and whisked him off to one of our amazing volunteers, who knew just what to do.


Since this little guy is still a newbie to the world, our foster team is on high alert, keeping a close eye on him 24/7, to make sure he's gobbling up enough grub and doing his business like a champ!

But, so far, he is going from strength to strength, and we are excited to give you more updates as they come in from our foster team! For now, enjoy this 30-second clip of our little bundle of cuteness practicing her digging!

UPDATE: 27th March

We're over the moon to share with you how well our tiny furless kit is doing. Now on just two feeds a day; he is getting his taste-buds through for all things green (except lettuce, of course). Readigrass and rocket are now on the menu for the little bun, and it's safe to say he is flourishing on his new diet and are fast turning into an incredible little wild rabbit.
